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

Suns-of-Dub-Major-Lazer

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).

LargeUp Premiere: Fuego Campo + Jahdan Blakkamoore, “Don’t Violate”

Words by LargeUp Crew—

Noble Society

We never know where Jahdan Blakkamoore will turn up next. A small sampling of the eclectic singjay’s recent catalog includes a reunion with Smif N Wessun (on whose classic “Soundbwoy Bureill” remix he appeared on back in the day), a riveting unplugged performance with Brooklyn Shanti and a tribute to the “Queen of the Forest” with Chicago’s Illuminati Congo. And that’s not even mentioning his songwriting credits for Major Lazer and Snoop Lion—whose “Lighters Up” featured more vocals from an uncredited Blakkamoore than it did Snoop himself.
