Vintage Vibes: Mr.Vegas + Joe Lickshot’s “Real Don”

Words by Jesse Serwer—


It seems like everyone in reggae and dancehall is going back to basics. You could say Mr. Vegas helped kick off this trend back in early 2012 when he released Sweet Jamaica, an album inspired by vintage rocksteady and Jamaican festival tunes. Vegas of course went right back to the future, embracing uptempo EDM-influenced dancehall on subsequent hits “Party Tun Up” and “Give It To Har,” but he’s set his watch back once again with “Real Don.”

Bounty Killer, Wayne Marshall and Federation Sound

Bounty Killer’s new one “No Long Talking” is one of our favorite tunes of the past month, and our pick for best Bounty song in at least a few years—it’s the Warlord back in top form. We can’t say for sure if it was recorded before or after his recent dust-up with Tommy Lee Sparta, but if that’s what it took to get him back on the level, than bring on the clash!

He Knows Snowcone…The Real Snowcone

Words By Jesse Serwer


Fans of Rick Ross’s Deeper Than Rap may recall Magazeen, the deejay who plays Officer Ricky‘s foil on “Yacht Club,” one of that album’s standout tracks. The Bawse signed the Miami-based yardie to his Maybach Music Group and is said to be making some efforts to break him properly in Jamaica. While one might question an American rapper’s ability to buss a deejay, Ross frequently performs at Caribbean clubs and events and is planning his own tour of the islands in November (We also hear he’s playing C-Pac in Flatbush, Brooklyn next month). The newly released “7-11 Hustle” features both the star and his protege on Jah Snowcone‘s (now year-old) 7-11 riddim, with a corresponding video shot in Kingston. Ross hopping on a juggling rhythm is notable in itself but will this catch on in yard?

You may have caught some of  the “Shotta Culture” music videos (and some behind the scenes footage) we at Largeup posted over the the last few months. And this past Tuesday, August 31st, dancehall icon, Spragga Benz, and Grammy winning producer, Salaam Remi, got some friends together to celebrate the release of their new concept album, “Shotta Culture” at Santos Party House. 

Music videos off the record were played on a giant screen and  I (DJ Gravy) was there to play some tunes alongside Federation’s Max Glazer and Kenny Meez. Largeup’s Tono Radvany caught some pics that captured the vibe of the evening, enjoy.
