As we move into November plenty has been happening around here. We had the Jamrock Reggae Cruise, H.I.M’s Coronation Anniversary, the passing of John Holt, Halloween and of course plenty of music. #MixtapeMondays returns with new tunes from one of JA’s favorite groups and mixed carnival vibes from NYC and London.

Words by LargeUp Crew, Photos by Martei Korley


Last week, LargeUp set sail from Miami to Jamaica aboard the inaugural Welcome to Jamrock Reggae Cruise, alongside Damian Marley, Stephen Marley, Shaggy, Tarrus Riley and about 3,000 of our “closest friends.” Along the way we stopped in MoBay and Ochi, picking up Sean Paul, Bounty Killer, Jah Cure, Etana and Busy Signal, and witnessed performances from all of the above as well as epic dances spun by Stone Love, King Jammy’s, David Rodigan, Mighty Crown. And that’s just about half of it.

Fashion Fridays: Official Lee “Scratch” Perry Tees + Buttons


Lee “Scratch” Perry would be a hell of a Halloween costume. Perry’s personal uniform is a compilation of personal artifacts so distinctive that it would be impossible to replicate. So while we’re sure someone’s tried, we doubt anyone else out there could do Scratch justice. Better to spend your Oct. 31st enjoying the many “haunted” and “spooky” tunes the reggae/dub pioneer has had his hand in over the years. From Bob Marley’s original “Duppy Conqueror” (produced by Perry on the Upsetter label in 1970) to his latest release, “Black Ark Vampires,” (premiered right here yesterday) Perry’s catalog is ripe for Halloween listening. If you really must express your love for LSP through your attire, head over to his website, where a pair of smartly designed new tees and some slick new pins are now for sale.

The tees, designed by New Analog and hand printed by One69A, are the first official shirts ever commissioned for The Upsetter, while the pins are currently available for pre-order at £3 a pop. Pree di business below.
