Electric Punanny & Popeye Caution's 'My Way' Will Soundtrack Your Weekend

The sounds of Jamaica, Brooklyn and Miami collide in this this new summer jam.

Electric Punanny, the DJ/producer duo comprised of Jasmine Solano and MeLo-X, are back with a new track that's readymade for your weekend parties.

"My Way" sees the duo link up with Miami reggae act Popeye Caution over an infectious dancehall-meets-electro beat. The track combines the musical vibes of Jamaica, Brooklyn and Miami for an uplifting summer anthem.


"'My Way' was as fun to make as it is to hear," Jasmine Solano tells OkayAfrica. "We created new dance moves while we wrote the lyrics. Popeye Caution is an amazing performer who encapsulates a lot of dancehall moves in is shows. We wanted everyone to instantly dance when this song came on.The production has a big stadium feel but can also destroy any dance floor. The verses have that minimal clean turn up that we always bring and the chorus takes the song into anthem mode!"

Popeye Caution adds: "I was inspired by Ice Cube's 'It Was A Good Day,' I wanted to give it a twist with a fun island vibe and of course get the ladies involved." You might remember Popeye from his hit "Work" alongside Walshy Fire.

Electric Punanny are heading on a 10 year anniversary tour in August that will see them touch down inToronto for Caribana, Brooklyn, Boston and Los Angeles. Check out the flyer underneath for more details.
