Mixtape Mondays: Green Lion Crew x King Mas, Federation Sound x Vybz Kartel, DJ Autograph

Words by Deejay Theory —

RASTA-ROAD-MIXTAPE-FRONTTouching down from a long week in Austin, Texas (peep the full recap from our first SXSW showcase here) we’re back at Mixtape Mondays with more vibes on deck. New roots and one drop meet an iconic dancehall mix from the vaults and some new shellings.

LargeUp Premiere: Green Lion Crew x King Mas, Rasta Road: The big new mix from the good folks at Green Lion Crew just arrived on our doorstep, laced with new unreleased productions, remixes and exclusives, hosted by and featuring the crisp vocals and conscious lyrics of the one King Mas. This is a natural collaboration between two strong camps in modern roots music, with Green Lion busy at the controls producing new riddims and Mas steadily earning supporters with each new tune. Undoubtedly both considered artists and producers to look out for this year, the two put it all together with the Rasta Road mixtape blasting off right here on Mixtape Mondays.

Up-and-coming film director Ravi Lloyd is our man in Anguilla, consistently keeping us up with the runnings on his home island. For Ravi’s latest work, check Anguillan reggae singer Omari Banks’ “Jehovah Message” video, shot in locations all around AXA. With that clip having just seen release, and Moonsplash—the annual Anguilla music festival founded and run by Omari’s father, Bankie Banx—set to kick off, Ravi revisits Bankie’s “Down On The Corner” video, shot on Anguilla in 1984.
