Next Future: Watch Protoje’s “Stylin” Video

Words by Jesse Serwer, Photos by Christopher Mitchell

It seemed like the whole reggae world (LargeUp included) was out at sea last week on Damian Marley’s Welcome to Jamrock Reggae Cruise but big tings a gwaan off-ship, too. Among these was the release of “Stylin,” the second single from Protoje’s upcoming LP, Ancient Future. The track features a slightly different, though not entirely foreign, sound for Oje, manipulating his voice through the use of a vocoder. Check out the lyric video (which is kinda like a real video but with lyrics) below, followed by some pics from Protoje’s live Miami debut (at which he was accompanied by Chronixx, Kabaka Pyramid and Ky-mani Marley) this past Sunday.

Pressure Busspipe is currently enjoying a Renaissance. Less than six months after he unleashed his enthusiastically received I-Grade Records LP, The Sound, he’s back with a second 2014 LP. For this project, entitled Africa Redemption, the St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands-based singer headed back to Jamaica, where he recorded the classic single “Love & Affection,” among other tracks, for producer Don Corleon in the mid 2000s.

Kingston 360: Watch Chronixx’s “Capture Land” Video

Words by Natalie Weiner
chronixx-capture-land

We last heard from Chronixx in July, when he was bringing the reggae revival vibes to Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and LargeUp’s own debut SummerStage concert in Central Park. After closing out the summer on the festival circuit Europe, he’s back in the Western Hemisphere with visuals for “Capture Land,” the third single off his Dread and Terrible EP. Appropriate for the anti-colonial anthem, the video shows the “capture land” of Kingston from all angles—from the scenic views looking down from the mountains to the neglected Downtown waterfront, all beautifully shot by Jerome D of Top Dawg Entertainment (TDE). The director, who also shot Kendrick Lamar’s “Swimming Pools” and “Poetic Justice” videos, manages to capture both Kingston’s grit and its visual appeal, as the ever-charismatic Chronixx leads us through the real Kingston. Check out the video below, and let us know what you think in the comments.
