EVENT: LargeUp Presents Federation Sound 15th Anniversary (5/22)

Words by LargeUp Crew—

LargeUp-Federation-Sound-15-Miami

Federation Sound has been at the forefront of pushing dancehall forward since 1999, when Max Glazer and Kenny Meez started the DJ crew with their good friend Cipha Sounds. Cipha eventually moved on, but Kenny and Max grew Federation into one of the most creative sounds in the business, bringing Fame FM’s Alric & Boyd and the late Disco D into a network simultaneously representing New York, Philadelphia and Jamaica. Max and Kenny have made plenty of moves in their own right over the years, but Federation has always been at the core of what they do as reggae/dancehall DJs, with projects like their reliable mixtape series (including official/commissioned titles for the likes of Vybz Kartel, Aidonia, Wayne Marshall and TOK), the weekly Brand New Machine party in NYC, and events across the U.S., Caribbean and Europe.

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.

AUDIO: Vybz Kartel x Federation Sound, “Portmore Scheme”

Words by Max Glazer

This is probably my single favorite thing I have ever had the pleasure of working on with Adidja Palmer, professionally known as Vybz Kartel. It’s not the most polished recording, in fact you will probably notice some digital distortion, but it certainly has the vibe. This may even be my all time favorite recording of the man known, at various times in his career, as Adi Banton, Adi Di Teacha, Vybz Kartel and now Worl’ Boss.
