Words by LargeUp Crew, Photos by Mark Dixon


This past Sunday, LargeUp celebrated the rising of the “Supermoon” with a special Reggae Sunday Sunset Session at an NYC location so top secret, we can’t even disclose the name of it. (Our New York massive can probably make the ID from the pics, though). Guests at the event, which featured a live performance from dancehall legend Sister Nancy sounds from DJ Gravy, Micro Don, DJ Select and Ras Tayo of Twin Sounds, included Ricky Blaze, Sahr Ngaujah (from the casts of Fela and Last Resort), Bajah from the Dry Eye Crew, dancers Blacka di Danca, Lindsay HallKorie GeniusSaRiri, Soroya Lundy, Ai Wakabayashi and Shernita So Fly. Of course, Emily, Mikaila, Kieran, Winifred, Dre and Spliffington and the LargeUp crew was there in full effect—and so were Japanese media.

Words by Jesse Serwer—


Okay, we might need a (semi-) late pass on this one, but our recent coverage of Dominican Republic action-sports capital Cabarete reminded us of this dope recent video series featuring Dominican-born, NYC-based skateboarder Luis Tolentino‘s return home to DR earlier this year.

LargeUp Premiere: Red Fox’s “Soulja” Video

Words by Jesse Serwer—


Red Fox is one of the pillars of dancehall music in New York City. Sure, he originally hails from St. Catherine, Jamaica and came to fame with the classic “Down in Jamaica” (alongside singer Naturalee) but the rough-voiced deejay has called NYC home for decades.

New York Times Dancehall

The New York Times yesterday ran a story on the front page of its New York/Metro section about the phenomenon of dancehall party DVDs (specifically those depicting entire parties, unedited, from start to finish) and their popularity among expats abroad (and particularly in NYC). The story, by nightlife reporter Sarah Maslin Nir, would possibly have been more current about seven years ago, when the market for these videos was at their peak prior to the availability of such footage on YouTube, but it is an interesting read nonetheless. Read the full story here.
