Second Coming: Hollie Cook Returns with “Twice”

Words by Natalie Weiner—
hollie-cook-twice

Lovers rock revolutionary and LargeUp favorite Hollie Cook is back and ready to take 2014 by storm with her dubby reggae sound. The British singer is preparing to release her second full-length album in May, and, frankly, we can’t wait. Entitled Twice, the LP continues Cook’s exploration of what she describes as “tropical pop”—basically, a whole slew of different influences from around the world (jazz, ska, pop, etc.) combined with classic-sounding, yet totally-fresh deep dub grooves. With the assistance of Prince Fatty, who produced Cook’s debut, our pick for 2011’s album of the year, she’s built on that sound while taking it in a whole new direction.

Words by Saxon Baird—

tour-de-force

Tour De Force is the production side of Brooklyn-based selectors Double Tiger and DJ Q-Mastah, better known as Dub-Stuy Records. The two joined forces in 2012 and built a gorgeous, gigantic sound system (that’s it above) that they’ve been showing off around NYC and beyond while putting on dub-heavy dances and championing bass music.

If you’ve read LargeUp in the last few months, you must know about Suns of Dub by now. We premiered the crew’s mixtape with Major Lazer, named them to our Artists to Watch list for 2014 and brought them out to perform with The Roots at our annual holiday party with Okayplayer in December. They also figure prominently into our Meditations video series documenting the spiritual core of the burgeoning reggae revival.

Words by LargeUp Crew—

addis-pablo-in-my-fathers-house

If there’s anything we learned about Addis Pablo and his crew Suns of Dub in the last year, it’s that they are prolific. Following a busy 2013 that ended with a Major Lazer-produced mixtape, our Meditations documentary series and a performance with The Roots at the Okayplayer Holiday Jam, Addis is kicking off 2014 with a trio of limited-edition vinyl, pre-release singles, “Walls of Jericho,” “One Love, One Heart, One Family” and “Wareika Mystic,” via Holland’s Jah Solid Rock label.
