TONIGHT: Los Rakas, New Kingston + The Encyclopedia of Reggae on The LargeUp Sessions

Words by LargeUp Crew—

LargeUp Sessions

We’ve got a whole heap of guests stopping by the LargeUp Sessions on tonight: Los Rakas, New Kingston and author Mike Alleyne. Though they come from very different places— New Kingston are a three-piece band from NYC via Jamaica, and Los Rakas are a hip-hop duo from California’s Bay Area, by way of Panama—both groups come to the LargeUp Sessions fresh off the Dark ‘N Stormy Tour with Collie Buddz, which crisscrossed the Western US this fall. Meanwhile, Alleyne, a professor at Middle Tennessee University, will discuss his newly published Encyclopedia of Reggae book with us.

LargeUp Exclusive: Collie Buddz’ “Live Life”

Words by LargeUp Crew—

Collie Buddz "Live Life"

Collie Buddz is currently crisscrossing the Western United States on the Dark ‘N Stormy Tour with Los Rakas and New Kingston, but the Bermudan reggae sensation recently found time to voice a new dancehall riddim. “Live Life” is as self-explanatory as it gets, a feelgood anthem about living life to the fullest in the vein of Demarco’s “I Love My Life.” For the Jersey Boys fans out there, there’s also an unexpected nod to the Four Seasons’ “December, 1963 (Oh, What a Night).”
