Every Labor Day Monday, Caribbean swagger and New York style come together at the West Indian American Day Carnival (aka the “West Indian Day Parade” or “Brooklyn Carnival”) on Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn. We decided to bring our street style feature Pop Style out onto the Parkway this year, and the cast assembled did not disappoint, reflecting the mixture of national pride and personal style we’ve come to expect from this most visually stimulating of days. With New York Fashion Week kicking into gear today on the other side of town, we’ll be sharing our favorite looks from the Parkway here.

Ricky-Blaze

As a producer, Ricky Blaze has crafted tunes by artists from Vybz Kartel and Kes the Band to Santigold. As an artist, he was blending dancehall and EDM before most anyone else had a thought to do so, and has dabbled in hip-hop as well. But our favorite tunes from the Brooklyn quadruple threat (Ricky got his start as a dancer and DJ) tend to be his minimalist forays into reggae.

Throwback Thursdays: Stone Love with Ninjaman + Shabba at Biltmore Ballroom in 1989

One of the most interesting recent turns for Jamaican music has been the re-emergence of an ’80s and ’90s aesthetic both in music and fashion in the last year. Aidonia, Konshens, Iba MaHr and Mr. Vegas are just some of the Jamaican artists reaching deep into their closets and dusting off their mesh marinas, diamond sox, kangols and gold chains for their latest videos. Just yesterday, we featured yet another example of the on-going revival with Assassin aka Agent Sasco’s video for “Sekkle an Cease.” Featuring all of the key ingredients of a classic sound-system dance (jerk chicken vendors, Guinness, whining gyals), the video, down to it’s grainy VHS-quality, perfectly matches Sasco’s old-school voicing patterns over the throwback vibes of Jah Snowcone’s Nuh Fraid riddim.
