Blacka’s World: We Chief “Gyals From Brooklyn” Video Premiere

Words by Blacka Di Danca—

We-Chief-Gyals-From-Brooklyn

A few months ago, I made a step out of the standard dancehall scene (clubs, workshops, dance videos) and made my debut in the mainstream entertainment industry as a music video choreographer. I had the opportunity to choreograph Major Lazer’s “Lose Yourself” music video with Mela Murder, which already has over 2 million hits on YouTube. Now, I’m at it again! I’m proud to share with you that I choreographed my second music video, this time all by myself. “Gyals From Brooklyn” is my first solo project as a choreographer and little by little I’m working hard to bring authentic dancehall dancing into mainstream entertainment!

Words by Blacka Di Danca

It’s been a while since I’ve had the chance to write a “Blacka’s World” column here on LargeUp but I promise I will be updating you on my work more often. Recently I’ve been teaching weekly online dancehall courses for free on my YouTube channel, planning my upcoming fall tour, opening up stage shows like LargeUp’s Chronixx SummerStage event in Central Park, choreographing music videos and creating new dance moves! I may have been quiet, but I’ve definitely been busy! Today I have an opportunity for all dancers in or around NYC! And what’s the point of an opportunity, if you don’t share it?

LargeUp Presents Jam Central – It’s A Carnival (2014 Summer Soca Mix)

Words by LargeUp Crew

Soca music tends to fan out into the world through two different waves over the course of the year. First, around the start of the year (and increasingly during the holiday season the year before), you have the tunes for Trinidad Carnival. And then, as spring turns into summer, things start getting hot again as the carnival calendar moves through the Eastern Caribbean from St. Vincent to Grenada.

Running the soca at Mixtape Mondays in recovery from Caribana and preparation for the massive Barbados Cropover and Foreday Morning fetes coming up this week. Grab D music below, cash in some miles, and who knows maybe you’ll even end up whining with Rihanna this year… And look out for a premiere of Jam Central’s summer soca mix coming up shortly.
