Madd madd madd stack of soca remixes and blends from one of the toppa top remixers in the game  Black Chiney‘s own Willy Chin. Last week we featured the Uh Gosh! mix on #MixtapeMondays, which has quickly become one of our favorite mixes of the year, and now Willy has taken it one step further—just in time for Miami Carnival—by bouncing down all the sickest remixes from the CD and offering them up to the world as individual tracks.

Words by LargeUp Crew

We’ve been preaching the gospel of Hollie Cook for a few years now. This endearing songstress’ classic and nostalgic Lovers Rock sound caught our attention in 2011, a year in which we named her our “Top Artist to Watch”, and we’ve followed her growth ever since, and have even had the privilege of premiering some great music from her, including her latest LP, Twice, back in June. Needless to say we were beyond pleased to hear that the London native would be coming over to America for her first US tour this fall, and signed on as the media sponsor for her first US tour, which kicks off this Monday at Glasslands in Brooklyn, NYC.

On a hot July day in Summer 2012, LargeUp visited producer Salaam Remi at his Instrument Zoo studio in Miami, for a wide-ranging conversation on everything from his father (musician/promoter Van Gibbs) to Nas’ then freshly released Life is Good album. One memorable story he shared with us involved the genesis of Ini Kamoze‘s “Here Comes the Hotstepper,” Remi’s first production to top the Billboard singles chaart. With today being Ini Kamoze’s 57th birthday, and the 20th anniversary of “Hotstepper” hitting No. 1 looming on the horizon, we thought we’d let Mr. Remi tell the story...

Words by Deejay Theory

Be forewarned that you may end up wining at your desk or swerving on the freeway with the latest effort we just got handed from Orange Hill Productions. Our dupes in the UK have been teaming up with artists like Vybz Kartel, Mr Lexx, Busy Signal, Fatman Scoop and heaps more over the past few years, and, for their latest single, Jr. Tubby and Ras Kwame drafted none other than RDX to spread their signature party flow all over this uptempo Electro-Bashy recording. There’s even a 2-step mix to make sure the UK massive is properly sorted.
