Words by Natalie Weiner, Photos by Dan Petruzzi and Natalie Weiner—south-by-southwest-soca

LargeUp’s first-ever South by Southwest party, sponsored by House of Marley, took over the patio at Austin’s Empire Control Room and Garage on Wednesday. With artists and DJs from Trinidad, Jamaica, Brazil, the U.K., and New York, we definitely brought Caribbean flavor from around the globe to Texas.

Mash Up The Place: Los Rakas + More Take On Major Lazer’s “Bumaye”

Words by Deejay Theory —

It was only a matter of time before Major Lazer’s massive carnival anthem “Watch Out For This (Bumaye)” saw the official remix treatment. The original mix (which features The Flexican & FS Green) is one of my top personal picks of 2013, combining straight dancehall bizness from Busy Signal with salsa-flavored moombahton, all targeted straight for the waist. For the remix pack, what stood out first was “Desorden” from our Panabaynian homies Los Rakas, who of course sound right at home over the dembow-style production, blessing it with their trademark Spanish flow. As with all of Los Rakas’ joints, you don’t have to speak the language to just vibe out and get busy. There’s also killer takes from T.O.K and Shurwayne Winchester on the original riddim, plus five big-room and uptempo flips. (I’ll likely be sticking with the remixes over the OG version.) Login via Twitter to download the full pack here, or just stream “Desorden” below.

The LargeUp Sessions (5/16): Los Rakas + Deejay Theory

Words by LargeUp Crew—


It’s going to be a Bay Area takeover this Thursday night on the The LargeUp Sessions, as Our NorCal crew (and burgeoning Latin rap stars) Los Rakas and our own Mixtape Mondays columnist Deejay Theory—make their return to our RadioLily.com radio show. Los Rakas are stopping through in advance of their Webster Hall show Friday night, amidst their run opening up theater shows for US reggae road kings SOJA; Theory comes to us fresh off a major (if unexpected) high note of his own: a well-received official remix of Demi Lovato’s chart-busting pop hit “Heart Attack.” Tune in to RadioLily.com Thursday night from 6 to 8p.m. ET to hear how it goes down, and catch up with Los Rakas via their two latest videos—for “No Tan Listo” and “Mi Pais”—below.
