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.

Hi, Rihanna: Federation Sound’s All-Dubplate Rihanna Birthday Mix

Words by Jesse Serwer, via Federation Sound

As you may know, our dude Max Glazer and Rihanna go way back. The Federation Sound boss man was Ms. Fenty’s original DJ, playing an instrumental role in the pop superstar’s early career, and still turns up as a DJ at her private parties. For her 24th birthday today, Mr. Glazer gave his old buddy a nice tribute by compiling an all-dubplate mix in her honor featuring pretty much every current dancehall star of note toasting to the Bajan princess’ B-day over their biggest recent hits. Popcaan’s “Ravin” and “Party Shot,” Beenie Man and Future Fambo’s “Rum and Red Bull,” Mavado’s “So Special,” Serani’s “No Games,” Vegas’ “I Am Blessed” and more all get Rihanna x 24 re-licks from the artists themselves. Stream the mix below, and download it here.

Throwback Thursdays: Max Glazer on Mikey Jarrett’s “Mack Daddy” + Burro Banton’s “Boom Wa Dis”

Words by Max Glazer—

For a decade and then some, Federation Sound‘s Max Glazer has been known all over the world as a great dancehall DJ. But back before that he was a hip-hop journalist, penning memorable articles on people like Big L for the great but somewhat forgotten ’90s magazine, On The Go. We gave Max his old pen back so he could take us back to the days when hip-hop and dancehall were blending together in new and exciting ways, and Bobby Konders and Salaam Remi were coming together to make classics with NYC Badmen like Mikey Jarrett and Burro Banton.
