It looks like Labor Day Weekend in NYC might just have its anthem for this year in place (and perhaps Caribana and Notting Hill, too).

Two Ships at Sea: Watch Midnite’s “Same Boat We” Video

Words by Kaya.Lah—

The reggae monolith Midnite don’t often make music videos, but when they do, they have been memorable. (In fact, it was right here in 2011 that Midnite pemiered their very first video, for “Mongst I & I”).  Such is the case with the group’s first visuals from their recent Zion I Kings produced album Beauty for Ashes, for the single “Same Boat We,” with the Ancient Child seen on Midnite’s album covers brought to life by Midnite frontman Vaughn Benjamin’s eldest son, Senuah Benjamin.

LargeUp Premiere: King Mas’ “Reflection” Video

Words by Jesse Serwer—

King I-Vier and Jah Yzer’s California-based label Royal Order Music produced some of our favorite reggae tunes in 2013, specifically Gappy Ranks’ “Carpenter” and the reggae revival posse cut “Selassie Souljahz,” and they’ve continued the vibes this year with “Reflection,” the recent single from culture crooner King Mas. Boston-based Mas (also known as MasSicker) debuted his Rasta Road mixtape with Green Lion Crew here in March (and also hosted Tribe of Kings’ Next Generation Liberation, another LargeUp premiere), and now he’s back with a video for “Reflectionn.”

Kalbata and Mixmonster’s Congo Beat the Drum LP was created in the fashion of an original, Tubby’s-era Jamaican dub recording, using a 16-track tape machine and a vintage mixing desk. After conceiving the project in their native Israel, the producers, known for their work in electronic music, traveled to Jamaica where they recorded famed Jamaican deejays Echo Minott, Major Mackerel, Little John and the late Prince Jazzbo.
