Welcome to LargeUp’s new street style feature, Pop Style. Every other Friday, we’ll be talking sartorial shop with the most impeccably dressed men and women of the Caribbean and the diaspora, from familiar faces to everyday people pon di corner. Along the way we intend to show the world what we’ve long held true—no one’s got style and swagger quite like the islands.

Audio: Punky Donch “Balang Beng” (Fellow remix)

Words by Deejay Theory —

Fellow-Press3Some badd Arubian bass right here to help welcome the warmer climates on deck. Roots/rock reggae group Punky Donch get the trap and bass treatment from a silent killer in the global bass domain, the one they call Fellow. I’ve been a fan of Fellow’s tunes for a minute — originally hipped by that dude Jillionaire — for always flipping tropical sounds in new ways armed and ready for the club or festival. Cutting no shorts on this official remix he takes the original laid back island vibe of “Balang Beng” and transforms it into this 808 stomper flown in on a PJ straight from Aruba. Highly recommend copping that download below while it’s still hot.

Throwback Thursdays: Leroy Smart’s “Good Man In Your Life”

Words by Jesse Serwer—

It’s been noted on this site before that dancehall videos didn’t really become prevalent until the 1990s. All told, there’s probably only 20 or so proper videos from the genre predating that era which have made it to YouTube. That’s what made it a nice surprise to encounter this clip of Leroy Smart’s “Good Man In Your Life,” dating back to 1987.

Words by Deejay Theory —

RASTA-ROAD-MIXTAPE-FRONTTouching down from a long week in Austin, Texas (peep the full recap from our first SXSW showcase here) we’re back at Mixtape Mondays with more vibes on deck. New roots and one drop meet an iconic dancehall mix from the vaults and some new shellings.

LargeUp Premiere: Green Lion Crew x King Mas, Rasta Road: The big new mix from the good folks at Green Lion Crew just arrived on our doorstep, laced with new unreleased productions, remixes and exclusives, hosted by and featuring the crisp vocals and conscious lyrics of the one King Mas. This is a natural collaboration between two strong camps in modern roots music, with Green Lion busy at the controls producing new riddims and Mas steadily earning supporters with each new tune. Undoubtedly both considered artists and producers to look out for this year, the two put it all together with the Rasta Road mixtape blasting off right here on Mixtape Mondays. Stream and download below, tracklist here
