lauryn-hill-letterman

LargeUp regulars may know DJ Rampage as a purveyor of fine reggae mixtapes and selector on our radio program The LargeUp Sessions, but our bredrin has been holding down Lauryn Hill as her tour DJ for the nearly five years. With Lauryn gearing up to release her first new studio album in over a decade and a half, Letters to Exile, Rampage has been making some high-profile appearances alongside Ms. Hill, including her first televised performance in three years Friday night on David Letterman.

LargeUp Premiere: Major Lazer & Walshy Fire Present Suns of Dub

Suns-of-Dub-Major-Lazer

A group, record label and sound system based between Jamaica, Trinidad and New Jersey, Suns of Dub is led by Addis Pablo, son of the late great Augustus Pablo, and producer/label co-CEO, Ras Jammy. Over the last few years the unit, which also consists of artists Masia One (Canada), Jah Bami (Trinidad) and Zebulun (Trinidad) and drummer Tesfa Zion, has released a steady stream of innovative tracks blending and bridging the gap between traditional dub featuring—Addis has taken up the mantle for the melodica, the instrument his father legitimized on his landmark projects with King Tubby and his own Rockers International—and modern EDM.

As he did with Chronixx last year, Walshy Fire of Major Lazer has stepped up to put things in perspective, gathering Suns of Dub’s key tracks, along with original remixes and unreleased tunes, for global consumption. Showcasing the crew’s diversity, the mix runs through Reggae, dub, dubstep, dancehall, trap, hip-hop, drum and bass and even some steelpan made in Port of Spain, Trinidad, with pannist Derron Ellies. Things start out with “Vybz Wa Yuh Feel,” a track featured in Part 2 of our Meditations video series featuring Addis Pablo and Jesse Royal (Watch Part One starring Ras Jammy and Jesse Royal here), which you can watch below (or get the full experience here).
