LargeUp Premiere: Martei Korley’s “Couldn’t Be Wrong” Video

Couldnt-Be-Wrong-video

LargeUp co-founder and creative director Martei Korley is the photographer behind countless classic reggae images, but he’s also a reggae artist himself. Today being International Reggae Day, he’s decided to share this other side of his creativity with the world in the form of his video for “Couldn’t Be Wrong,” shot between his two homes of Kingston, Jamaica and New York City.

“Couldn’t Be Wrong,” off Martei’s Kingston Konfidential EP (out July 22 and available for pre-order today) is “about a long-distance relationship, and, in some ways, also about my relationship with Jamaica,” Martei tells us. The clip, directed by Johnny Dollar and co-starring up and coming singer Sevana, illustrates this theme with travel footage taken at JFK Airport in NY and Norman Manley in Kingston, and high up in the sky above both cities on a 747. The result is a visually stimulating clip that will feel familiar to anyone who’s ever had miles between them and what they love. For more on Martei’s journey, read our interview with him here.

Nardo-Ranks-The-Surf-Lodge-Dream-Live

It’s been an extra long road to summer this year. For those of us in cooler climates, winter couldn’t have ended any sooner, and it’s only just recently that temperatures have finally begun to reach levels truly befitting the season. So, now that summer is finally, officially, unequivocally here, LargeUp is going all out, with our biggest season of live music events yet. This week alone, we’re heading to Miss Lily’s in NYC for International Reggae Day (tomorrow!); Ron Jon Surf Shop in Florida for Saturday Soundsystem with Jesse Royal (Saturday, naturally); and, finally, the Surf Lodge in Montauk, Long Island on Sunday, for the year’s first edition of Dream Hotels ‘ Dream Live! series with Nardo Ranks.

We’ve said it here before, and we’ll say it again: Jesse Royal is the future of reggae. Following Jesse’s appearances at our epic South by Southwest and Winter Music Conference showcases this past March, we’re teaming with our 2014 Artist to Watch once more, along with House of Marley, for a live performance at the world-famous Ron Jon Surf Shop in Cocoa Beach, Florida, this Saturday, July 5th. LargeUp’s DJ Gravy will be manning the decks at the event, part of Ron Jon’s Saturday Soundsystem series, from 1-6.
