Just Added: Bunji Garlin + Jesse Royal at Rice & Peas SxSW

Words by LargeUp Crew—


We’re packing our bags and heading to Texas for the LargeUp/House of Marley-presented South by Southwest edition of Rice & Peas at Empire Patio on Wednesday. But before we board that plane to Austin, we’ve got some massive additions to our previously announced roster for the daytime event to share.

Everything Nice: Watch The First Video From Popcaan’s Upcoming LP

Words by Natalie Weiner–Popcaan-everything-nice-LargeUp

Popcaan has much to be thankful for—cosigns from artists like Pusha TDrake, Busta, and Snoop, a Billboard-charting single, multiple international tours… all before he’s dropped a full-length album. So it makes sense that he’s expressing his gratitude in “Everything Nice,” the first single off his upcoming Mixpak Records debut. Featuring an airy riddim from Dubbel Dutch, the track shows off Popcaan’s smooth vocals as he sings about balancing hard work and good times.

Popcaan has been rising up the dancehall ranks for a few years now. His abundant catchy, hook-filled singles have made him a household name in Jamaica and the Caribbean, and the aforementioned hip-hop collaborations have finally put him on the map in North America. His “unorthodox and oddly melodious delivery” has helped him move from Vybz Kartel protegé to one of dancehall’s biggest crossover artists. Hear more from the man himself in our LargeUp TV exclusive, “A Day In The Life with Popcaan.”

LargeUp Presents: Chi Ching Ching X Eccentrix Sound in Europe


Chi Ching Ching, one of our 21 artists to watch for 2014, and the Eccentrix Sound crew are about to take Europe by storm this month. Thanks to Team No Sleep, Four Star Foundation, and oh yeah, LargeUp, the Jamaica and Miami-based artists are set to bring the bashment with stops in Sweden, Austria, Germany, and Italy.

To follow up on the tour preview video we dropped a few weeks back, Eccentrix and Ching have dropped a video for their remix of Lil Jon’s “Turn Down For What” (endorsed by Jon himself!) just in time to get y’all hyped for their first visit to the Continent.

Blacka’s World: Blacka Loses Himself + Teaches The World

Words by LargeUp Crew—


The Winter Olympics weren’t the only international culture clash happening in Russia last month. While the world’s greatest cold-weather athletes were proving themselves in Sochi, our Blacka Di Danca was in Moscow getting an army of Russian dancers in sync with dancehall during his latest instructional tour. If this video (an Instagram-sized preview of a more extensive clip to come) doesn’t speak volumes about dancehall’s global appeal, we don’t know what does.

LargeUp Premiere: Equiknoxx Music’s Frenz List Riddim


Equiknoxx Music’s Frenz List riddim features Busy Signal, T.O.K., Masicka, Christopher Martin, Navino and new artist ReoSoul over a spare, wine-inducing dancehall instrumental from Equiknoxx’s Gavin “Gavsborg” Blair.

Zip FM’s ZJ Johnny Kool premiered the riddim (which gets an official iTunes release March 14)  via radio, and now Equiknoxx, one of our favorite dancehall production outfits of the moment, have given us a mix previewing the first four tracks on the riddim (from Busy, T.O.K., Masicka and ReoSoul). For good measure, they’ve also shared a stream of lead single “Frenz” by ReoSoul to help you get familiar.
