Some call him a “Remix God“, but Tory Lanez continues his run of remixes with the release of his latest mixtape, “International Fargo“! While folks are waiting for “Chixtape 5“, he holds over fans with this one. One track that stands out on this however is his remix of Jamaican Recording Artist on the rise, Koffee’s “Toast“! Produced by Walshy Fire and Izy Beats, Tory borrows the original and adds a few bars on it but left Koffee’s original parts on it. Tory also remixed the massively popular “Touchdown (Remix)” on his project which was originally done by UK Dancehall Artist Stylo G, Rapper Nicki Minaj, and Dancehall Icon Vybz Kartel, and dropped some lines on his remix to Dancehall/Afrobeats Artist Davido’s “Fall“.
With “Toast” cracking the 23 million mark on Youtube and showing up on Jordan Peele’s “US” movie, Koffee has a lot to give thanks for. We need a proper remix of “Toast” out here too featuring some of the established and upcoming names. “International Fargo” is out now, Koffee’s Rapture EP is out now, and you can check out the “Toast (Remix)” below.

Even though it’s not the weekend, you can still turn up with us. Luckily we have some new music here courtesy of Electric Punanny and Popeye Caution with their single, “My Way“. While the song encourages you to live your best life by your own rules, this track will have you dancing the stress away and blocking all the negative energy that tries to creep up on you. Listening to this track will also promote a more positive outlook on life. With this blend of Dancehall, Pop, and Afrobeats provided by Producer (and 1/2 of Electric Punanny) Melo-X (Co-Writer and Producer of Beyonce’s “Sorry” and “Hold Up“), you’ll be grooving like you were at that Pool Party you can’t stop reflecting on. Enjoy life, Jah is in control! Check out the track below, and share with a friend. Show us some love on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
The trio of Walshy Fire, Diplo and Jillionaire a.k.a. Major Lazer are on a mission to leave a mark this Summer with their recent EP, “Know No Better“. The project, featuring 6 songs, is a mix of Dancehall, EDM, Afrobeat, Hip Hop, Reggaeton, and Pop Music. Never a stranger to the Caribbean, they’ve managed to bring along Recording Artists Busy Signal, Konshens, Sean Paul, and Machel Montano. Busy Signal appears on the track, “Jump”, which promises to bring the same energy as his “Watch Out For This” hit with ML, while Sean Paul appears with J Balvin on “Buscando Huellas”, and Konshens & Machel Montano appear on “Front Of The Line”, which is the EP’s first single and is currently featured in Bacardi Rum’s latest Commercial (which can be seen below).
