AUDIO + VIDEO: USVI Songstress Kenya Eugene’s St. Croix Soul

Words by Kaya.lah

Kenya-Eugene

Amongst the crisp hip-hop, driving calypso, and irie roots reggae, there’s an interesting sense of class finely woven into the Virgin Islands’ musical tapestry. Ms. Kenya Eugene is a prime example: an effortless songstress and seasoned fashion model, she is now getting her art out en masse, giving us a great opportunity to showcase how diverse the Caribbean really is.

Our good friend, long-time LargeUp contributor and Major Lazer frontman Walshy Fire just inboxed us with the video for “Draw We Out” from Antigua’s Promise No Promises, along with this note: “I think I am doing well with discovering dope shit out of the Caribbean.” Walshy being the dude that first put us on to Chronixx--and helped bring Jesse Royal and Suns of Dub to global attention–and just that dude in general, we just had to stop what we were doing, and take a look.

Throwback Thursdays: Carly Simon’s “Why”

Words by Jesse Serwer

As the guitarist of the band Chic and one half of the Chic Organization production/songwriting team with bassist Bernard Edwards, Nile Rodgers was the driving force behind the disco era’s best music. Besides for Chic’s numerous hits (“Le Freak,” “Good Times”) and underrated gems (“My Feet Keep Dancing,” “Real People”), Rodgers, along with Edwards, was behind the sound of Sister Sledge’s “We Are Family” and Diana Ross’ “I’m Coming Out,” to name a few undeniable classics from that period. And of course the Rodgers hit parade continued into the post-disco era, and the current day. But you already knew all this.

Words by Deejay Theory

Busy-Signal-Money-Flow-Greetings

Busy brings his signature flow to his interpretations of “Wa Do Dem” and “Greetings,” unleashing a combo that should be mashing up a dance near you anytime now, rrrrriiiitttteee???
