Pray For a Soundboy: Dub-Stuy Meets Johnny Osbourne

Words by Saxon Baird—


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.

LargeUp Premiere: Thornato ft. Jahdan “Ka Kong” (Captain Planet remix)

Words by Deejay Theory —


Get ready for some crazy new works from the depths of the tropical forest via Thornato featuring our bredrin Jahdan Blakkamoore in the booth. The remix treatment is served up by muilt-talented DJ/producer Captain Planet, who’s diversity comes through even further with this tune flipping the original into a reggae/dubstep/trap meteor ready to drop on dancefloors and soundbwoys worldwide. Jahdan kinda sounds good on everything, but particularly shines on beats like these, Captain Planet knocked it out the jungle. The original and remix are brought to you by NYC’s Cumba Mela Records, and are available as of today right here. Peep the remix below and find a co-worker to whine upon.

LargeUp Premiere: Major Lazer & Walshy Fire Present Suns of Dub


A group, record label and sound system based between Jamaica, Trinidad and New Jersey, Suns of Dub is led by Addis Pablo, son of the late great Augustus Pablo, and producer/label co-CEO, Ras Jammy. Over the last few years the unit, which also consists of artists Masia One (Canada), Jah Bami (Trinidad) and Zebulun (Trinidad) and drummer Tesfa Zion, has released a steady stream of innovative tracks blending and bridging the gap between traditional dub featuring—Addis has taken up the mantle for the melodica, the instrument his father legitimized on his landmark projects with King Tubby and his own Rockers International—and modern EDM.

As he did with Chronixx last year, Walshy Fire of Major Lazer has stepped up to put things in perspective, gathering Suns of Dub’s key tracks, along with original remixes and unreleased tunes, for global consumption. Showcasing the crew’s diversity, the mix runs through Reggae, dub, dubstep, dancehall, trap, hip-hop, drum and bass and even some steelpan made in Port of Spain, Trinidad, with pannist Derron Ellies. Things start out with “Vybz Wa Yuh Feel,” a track featured in Part 2 of our Meditations video series featuring Addis Pablo and Jesse Royal (Watch Part One starring Ras Jammy and Jesse Royal here), which you can watch below (or get the full experience here).

Salute Dem: EchoSlim + Reblah Star’s Audio/Video Super Cat Tribute

Words by Jesse Serwer—


If we took a “favorite artist” poll here at the LargeUp HQ, chances are Super Cat would finish near the top. Whether it’s sporting the Don Dada tee from our friends Shimmy Shimmy, seeing ‘Cat return to the stage at Hammerstein Ballroom earlier this month, or unearthing a lost mixtape from the Wild Apache, we big up the don of all dons every chance we get.
