EVENT: Rice and Peas x Jamaica 50th @ Westway, NYC, Mon. Aug 6

Words by LargeUp Crew—

Monday is Jamaica’s big 50th anniversary, and Rice and Peas will be celebrating the momentous occasion in fine style at Westway in NYC. Get all the details from the Spliffington-designed 1962 Jamaican stamp flyer you see here, and meet us and the R&P crew (Max Glazer, Micro Don, DJ Maya, Orijahnal Vibez and LargeUp’s own DJ Gravy) there. Just in case you don’t know how Rice and Peas parties go down (and why you need to be there if you’ll be in NYC), get familiar with this photo series from the 5th anniversary party at Santo’s Party House in June, and LargeUp’s R&P-shot webisodes with Collie Buddz and Leftside.

Impressions: LargeUp x Mr. Vegas x Rice and Peas in Miami

Words by Jesse Serwer, Photos by Tono—

On Wednesday night, Large Up brought the bashment to Winter Music Conference with the first ever Miami edition of New York’s famed Rice and Peas party, featuring a special performance from Mr. Vegas. Rice and Peas DJs Orijahnal Vibez, Max Glazer, DJ Gravy and DJ Maya set the tone for the night with top-notch dancehall selections while super MC Micro Don got the crowd hype with his mic chatter, Mixpak Records chief/Vybz Kartel producer Dre Skull took things to the left with some tropical bass and Trinidadian swimwear designer Elysia Persad debuted her Colly Dolly brand with a brief runway show. Everything, of course, built up to Mr. Vegas’ set, which featured the expected medley of classic hits like “Heads High” and “She’s a Ho.”

LargeUp x Rice and Peas x WMC x Mr. Vegas in Miami (3/21)

Words by LargeUp Crew—

Each March, Winter Music Conference brings what feels like a majority of the world’s DJs to Miami but amongst all the house, trance and occasional hip-hop going on, dancehall always seems to get left out of the mix. To remedy the situation, this year LargeUp is bringing New York City’s best dancehall party, Rice and Peas, to Ricochet in Miami during WMC. Even better, the event, on Wed. March 21, doubles as a release party for Mr. Vegas’ Sweet Jamaica LP, an easy frontrunner for the year’s best reggae/dancehall album in our collective opinion.

Mixtape Mondays: Spyda the DJ, Stone Love, DJ Maya

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.

Mixtape Mondays: Platinum Kids, DJ Maya & Black Chiney Sound

Words by Eddie STATS Houghton

Time again for Mixtape Mondays, y’all…there’s no special theme for this week except back to school! Somehow hitting yourself over the head with some tough riddims always eases the pain of hitting the books.
