If you couldn’t make it to Austin last week for the hottest bashment party Texas, and certainly South by Southwest, has ever seen, never fear—LargeUp is on the road again, and this time we’re getting the party started in Miami during this year’s Winter Music Conference.
The Winter Music Massive, co-produced by Electric Punanny, has become something of a WMC tradition. Previous parties have featured performances from dancehall legends Mr. Vegas and Johnny Osbourne, as well as an international assortment of the best bashment DJs.

“Comfortable” is one of two tunes from Jo Mersa, eldest son of Stephen Marley, on the just-released Ghetto Youths International compilation, Set Up Shop, Volume 1. And, like Mersa’s first single “Bad So,” it’s something a break from the family tradition of cultural reggae: young Jo has a very modern dancehall sound geared towards the ladies and the club.
