Ticket Giveaway: The Get Together Miami Featuring Protoje (Oct. 26)

kymani-marley-protoje-miami

It’s been a big year for Protoje, and he’s only put out one tune. That track, “Who Knows,” a collaboration with reggae revival colleague Chronixx, has proven to be massive, building up great levels of anticipation for his upcoming third album, due out next year.

As a special treat for his US fans, Protoje returns to the States on Sunday, Oct. 26th, for his first Miami show with the Indiggnation band. LargeUp has two pairs of tickets to give away for the show, happening at The Stage, with support from Mixed Culture, Selecta Addy of Eccentrix Sound and DJ Corey Chase. But that’s not all: one “grand prize” winner will also win a Get Together portable audio system from House of Marley.

LargeUp contributor and producer/DJ Echo Slim gave us a preview of his “unorthodox sound crew” Yaga Sounds on Mixtape Mondays a few weeks back. Now the Miami-based squad—part sound system and part live band, it also includes Joshua “Gappo” Manning (keyboardist for Beres Hammond, and son of The Abyssinians’ Donald Manning) and engineer Flexx—have dropped off their debut single “D.B.M.,” featuring none other than Sizzla, over a driving, uptempo dancehall riddim.

Words by Maj Johnson
Willy-Chin-Black-Chiney

We’ve been hearing soca and pop music blending in all sorts of ways recently, and the occurrences are growing more frequent. In the latest example of soca meeting the mainstream, Willy Chin of Black Chiney has blended Kerwin Dubois’s Carnival 2014 contribution “Spoil Mehself” with Canadian singer Kiesza’s smash summer hit “Hideaway.” The mashup first appeared on the ridiculously good Black Chiney Soca/Carnival mixtape Uh Gosh! and, having turned a few ears, it’s now been upped to the Internet in its entirety.
