GIVEAWAY: Win Tickets To See Kobo Town at SOBs in NYC (7/10)

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Kobo-Town

Kobo Town’s Jumbie in the Jukebox is easily one of our favorite albums of the year so far. With its mixture of vintage calypso and indie rock sensibilities, it’s Diaspora music at its finest, presenting a classic Caribbean style in a new light—not unlike Harry Belafonte 50 years ago. The group (vocalist Drew Gonsalves and assorted crew) are currently on tour in support of the album (which was recorded between Montreal, Trinidad, Belize and Toronto) and, this Wednesday night, they’ll make their New York City debut at SOBs. (In DC or Philly? They’re at the Kennedy Center and World Cafe Live, respectively, tonight and tomorrow. See the full tour dates here.)

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.

Normally, we wait until the end of the week to catch you up on fashion runnings. But when a clothing label like Supreme teams with a record label like Wackie’s, we have to interrupt your regularly scheduled programming.

Skateboarding in the Domincan Republic with Luis Tolentino

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-Soulja-Video

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.
