Throwback Thursdays: Shabba Ranks + Johnny Gill on Arsenio Hall

Words by DJ Gravy—

When Sean Paul and Konshens performed “Want Dem All” on the newly relaunched Arsenio Hall Show the other day, it got us thinking, hmmmmm. “Mr. Let’s Get Busy” (that’s Arsenio, for you young’uns) had a whole heap of reggae artists on his original show back in the day. But this clip of big, dutty, stinkin Shabba Ranks and R&B singer Johnny Gill performing their combination tune “Slow And Sexy” definitely takes the cake.

Words by Jesse Serwer—

protoje-chronixx-who-knows

Protoje‘s 8-Year Affair was one of our favorite Caribbean albums of 2013—maybe even our favorite, a mature sophomore release from an artist who had definitely found his sound. That sound being a contemporary, hip-hop-inflected spin on the militant, dubwise ’80s reggae of Black Uhuru, Aswad, etc.

LargeUp TV: Chronixx Meets Monty Alexander and Ernest Ranglin at the Blue Note

Chronixx-Monty-Alexander-Ernie-Ranglin

A few weeks ago, some of Jamaica’s most notable musicians came together at the legendary Blue Note jazz club in New York City, for a one-time-only series of performances sponsored by LargeUp. The “A History of Reggae + Jamaican Music” shows brought jazz pianist Monty Alexander and longtime collaborator/guitar great Ernest Ranglin —the two have played together for some 50 years—together with reggae’s brightest new star, Chronixx, performing as a representative of the music’s next generation.

Alexander, Ranglin and fellow musicians riffed on classics from the Jamaican songbook before being joined by Chronixx and his Zinc Fence Redemption band for renditions of their hits like “Odd Ras” and “They Don’t Know.”
