TICKET GIVEAWAY: Burning Spear at BRIC House, Brooklyn, 10/3

Words by LargeUp Crew, Photo by Ethan Sigman—


BRIC House, Brooklyn’s newest performance and cultural space, officially opens its doors this Thursday night (10/3), and, for their very first show, they’ve tapped none other than Jamaica native and NYC resident Burning Spear. If you’ve never caught Spear live before—or even if you have —consider this your opportunity, as the voice of “Marcus Garvey,” “Slavery Days” and other reggae classics will perform before an intimate crowd of just 400. And, we can tell you from first-hand experience, Spear is as vital as ever—trust us, we’ve worked out with him. (More on that later…)

LargeUp Premiere: Red Fox’s “Show Mi Di Wine” Video

Words by Jesse Serwer—

You might know Red Fox best from old-school classics like “Pose Off” with Screechy Dan, “Bashment Party” with Rayvon, and “Down in Jamaica” with Naturalee, but the Brooklyn deejay has definitely stayed current current. In fact, he’s been quite prolific of late, dropping “Love Mi Jamaica” with longtime collaborator (and former Ruff Entry Crew cohort) Shaggy, and his own solo tune, “Soulja,” which we premiered right here in May. And look out for his new mixtape, Fiyah Fox, presented by Safari Sound and LargeUp, right here shortly.
