In 2014, rising DJ/producer Ape Drums began playing a track in his sets that features Major Lazer and Jamaican dancehall singer Busy Signal. The song, which is referred to as “Bookshelf,” contains a sample of the classic dancehall riddim of the same name. While an unofficial version of Ape’s track has been floating around the web for over a year, Diplo has just sent DJcity a new version called “The Way We Do This.”

Though it resembles the original, “The Way We Do This” features a new drop and additional vocals from Busy Signal. It comes at a great time, when dancehall is making a comeback in the US and the world at large.

Diplo also sent us another Ape Drums song titled “Go Crazy” featuring New Jersey rapper Dougie F. Stream both tracks below and if you’re a DJcity subscriber, grab them here.
