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.

Mixtape Mondays Carnival Special: Private Ryan, Jus Now, Hipsters Don’t Dance

Words by Deejay Theory —

If you haven’t noticed from most of our recent posts it’s officially Carnival time in the Caribbean today and the music and vibes are flowing like rum around here. Grab these mixes to get into the spirit of the fete, but don’t hold us responsible if you end up wining on a co-worker or stranger on the train.
