For the second installment of the LargeUp Mix Series (download Vol. 1, Afro Soca, here) in comes the Ganja Special from California-based champion selector King I-Vier representing Jah Warrior Shelter Hi-Fi. In addition to the decades of DJ works throughout California and beyond, I-Vier has been producing and distributing conscious music via Royal Order Music, his reggae imprint with Jah Yzer, responsible for a slew of huge one drop tunes the last few years, including J Boog and Sizzla’s “Stand Firm” one of our picks for the best reggae tracks of 2015, as well as Gappy Ranks’ “Carpenter” and “Selassie Souljahz” with Chronixx, Protoje, Sizzla and Kabaka Pyramid, to name a few.
