Serious business this week at #MixtapeMondays with dubplate pressure, dancehall comedy, ruffneck lyrics and throwback heat all rolled up in one big-head spliff a badness.
Screechy Dan x Federation Sound x Safari Sound x DJ Autograph, My Story: If for any reason you weren’t tuned into the LargeUp frequencies this past week, a major boomshell was dropped in the custom mixtape department courtesy of our good friend and ‘mayor’ of Flatbush, BK Screechy Dan. Combining forces with none other than Federation, Safari and Autograph in the control room, this mix is a family affair on every level and shows and proves that Screechy is as relevant (and hilarious) as ever. Don’t sleep on his official mixtape My Story below. Tracklist and more info here
BRNGTN, Rhymes & Riddims Mixtape: The folks in Berlin at Soulforce just sealed up the latest project with one of their premier artists, the man called BRNGTN straight outta Brownsville, BK. Dude is keeping it official on the Rhymes & Riddims front, finessing gritty street lyricism over a nice selection of vintage reggae versions with an underlying tribute to his JA heritage throughout each tune . Cool nuh man. Stream below, download here
The Freshest, Mud Up: Respek to the fam up in Vancouver at The Freshest camp who always deliver the goods on record and at the club, this time inna Mud Up style and fashion. In combination with Stussy inspired by their Peter Tosh and Miss Lily’s collections (as seen on this this guy spotted at their “Good Life” party in Van a few monhts back) the team dip into their love for throwback dancehall/reggae/hip hop anthems with some newer essentials in there as well. Grab it below, tracklist here
King Addies x Buju Banton, Mark Myrie Aka Buju Banton 100% Dubplate Mix: Brooklyn is staying firm in the building this week with this big big sound killing mix from the legendary King Addies Sound in tribute to Buju Banton via their insane dub boxes (let’s not forget the exclusive Bounty Killer mix they dropped last year). Addies has a longstanding reputation in the sound-slaughtering business from 19-how long, but it’s always a treat to get the treatment first hand in mixtape form. Stream and download below
