Fashion Fridays: Bob Marley Shop

Words by LargeUp Crew—

Marley merchandise is a big, hundred-millions-dollar-a-year business and, for years, the music legend’s family/estate was seeing very little of that, while bootlegging ran rampant. Recently, however, the family has begun taking this aspect of the late legend’s legacy back into their hands.

Motivation Music: Jr. Gong’s New Video For “Set Up Shop”

Words by Nico Simino—

When Damian Marley premiered the video for “Affairs of the Heart,” the lead single from his upcoming album, I thought we might be seeing the softer, more emotional side of Jr. Gong. But the new video for the LP’s second single, “Set Up Shop” proves that Marley is as rebellious and provocative as he’s always been. Deejaying at a desk in a field for most of the video, Marley’s lyrics and images seem to encourage viewers/listeners to keep their hustle on, no matter what that hustle is.

Rub a Dubstep: Damian Marley and Skrillex “Make It Bun Dem”

Words by Jesse Serwer and DJ Gravy—

We were a bit surprised when we first came across Skrillex and Damian Marley’s “Make It Bun Dem,” in its original form under the name “Rudeboy Bass,” earlier this year. While dubstep has obvious roots in dub music, and producers such as Rusko were making reggae-influenced dubstep early on, as the music has progressed from an underground London phenomenon to the soundtrack of fuzzy boot-wearing teenyboppers, this connection has been obscured. And no one’s done more to turn dubstep into the new soundtrack for the Hot Topic set (and a genre worthy of recognition by the Grammys) than Skrillex.

Words by Jesse Serwer—

The man DJ Theory is sidelined with some symptoms of late winter-itis (look out for him to make a full recovery in time for his gigs at South by Southwest next week, though) this week but no worries—like the Postal Service, Mixtape Mondays delivers in rain, hail and snow.
