Big week of Mixtape Mondays here, with a monstrous thank you from one of North America’s baddest soundsystems, dub and tropical heat from the Bay, and a pre-carnival warmup straight from the source in London. Get crackin’ and start your week right.

Impressions: LargeUp x Mr. Vegas x Rice and Peas in Miami

Words by Jesse Serwer, Photos by Tono—

On Wednesday night, Large Up brought the bashment to Winter Music Conference with the first ever Miami edition of New York’s famed Rice and Peas party, featuring a special performance from Mr. Vegas. Rice and Peas DJs Orijahnal Vibez, Max Glazer, DJ Gravy and DJ Maya set the tone for the night with top-notch dancehall selections while super MC Micro Don got the crowd hype with his mic chatter, Mixpak Records chief/Vybz Kartel producer Dre Skull took things to the left with some tropical bass and Trinidadian swimwear designer Elysia Persad debuted her Colly Dolly brand with a brief runway show. Everything, of course, built up to Mr. Vegas’ set, which featured the expected medley of classic hits like “Heads High” and “She’s a Ho.”

LargeUp x Rice and Peas x WMC x Mr. Vegas in Miami (3/21)

Words by LargeUp Crew—

Each March, Winter Music Conference brings what feels like a majority of the world’s DJs to Miami but amongst all the house, trance and occasional hip-hop going on, dancehall always seems to get left out of the mix. To remedy the situation, this year LargeUp is bringing New York City’s best dancehall party, Rice and Peas, to Ricochet in Miami during WMC. Even better, the event, on Wed. March 21, doubles as a release party for Mr. Vegas’ Sweet Jamaica LP, an easy frontrunner for the year’s best reggae/dancehall album in our collective opinion.

Mixtape Mondays: Federation Sound, The Large, Kalibandulu

Words by DJ Theory—

This week I find myself in Austin, TX for the SXSW festival. Having a more than decent time already down here, I’m looking forward to DJing a healthy amount of parties, connecting with that dude Jesse Serwer, and eating my weight in tacos, which I’m well on my way to doing already. As always Mixtape Mondays can’t stop, won’t stop, and this week we got some new dancehall bizness from Italy, some funky, bashy vibez from London, and pure and excessive dublate murderation from the dons of stateside dancehall, Federation Sound. Let these three mixes work their magic and get your mind, iPod and week right…

Federation Sound, Dub Box Vol 2: HAUL AND PULL UP. Our NYC/Philly/JA fam and dancehall rulers Federation just laced the world with another free peek into their highly destructive crates of acetates and exclusives. The first volume of this CD was on steady repeat when I got it maybe five years ago, and I’m sure this one will have the same effect. This is definitely a unique mixtape, taking soundkilling dubs from the clash setting to the studio-mixed CD format (and of course blended in fine style from the man like Kenny Meez.) If you’re a reggae enthusiast you would only be shortchanging yourself not to download this right now and play it loudly. Idiot soundbwoys beware, this one might build yuh casket… Direct download the single track here, tracked mp3′s here

Hi, Rihanna: Federation Sound’s All-Dubplate Rihanna Birthday Mix

Words by Jesse Serwer, via Federation Sound

As you may know, our dude Max Glazer and Rihanna go way back. The Federation Sound boss man was Ms. Fenty’s original DJ, playing an instrumental role in the pop superstar’s early career, and still turns up as a DJ at her private parties. For her 24th birthday today, Mr. Glazer gave his old buddy a nice tribute by compiling an all-dubplate mix in her honor featuring pretty much every current dancehall star of note toasting to the Bajan princess’ B-day over their biggest recent hits. Popcaan’s “Ravin” and “Party Shot,” Beenie Man and Future Fambo’s “Rum and Red Bull,” Mavado’s “So Special,” Serani’s “No Games,” Vegas’ “I Am Blessed” and more all get Rihanna x 24 re-licks from the artists themselves. Stream the mix below, and download it here.
