EVENT: LargeUp + Federation Sound Present Chronixx + Junior Reid at Central Park Summerstage (7/26)

Words by LargeUp Crew— okayplayer-summerstage-2014

Here in New York, it’s almost summer—a.k.a. the season of free outdoor concerts all day, everyday. The granddaddy of them all is SummerStage, the series that turns Central Park (and other parks around the city) into a showcase for musicians and performing artists from around the world.

We’re excited to announce that, this summer, LargeUp is becoming a part of this venerable NYC tradition for the very first time. That’s right, we, along with Federation Sound (celebrating their 15th anniversary) are bringing dancehall and reggae—Chronixx and Zincfence RedemptionJunior Reid, and the Rice & Peas crew—to Central Park Summerstage on July 26, 100% free. The LargeUp show is one of a series of SummerStage shows commemorating Okayplayer’s own 15th anniversary, featuring a ton of great artists, including Guyana’s Blood Orange.

EVENT: LargeUp Presents Federation Sound 15th Anniversary (5/22)

Words by LargeUp Crew—

LargeUp-Federation-Sound-15-Miami

Federation Sound has been at the forefront of pushing dancehall forward since 1999, when Max Glazer and Kenny Meez started the DJ crew with their good friend Cipha Sounds. Cipha eventually moved on, but Kenny and Max grew Federation into one of the most creative sounds in the business, bringing Fame FM’s Alric & Boyd and the late Disco D into a network simultaneously representing New York, Philadelphia and Jamaica. Max and Kenny have made plenty of moves in their own right over the years, but Federation has always been at the core of what they do as reggae/dancehall DJs, with projects like their reliable mixtape series (including official/commissioned titles for the likes of Vybz Kartel, Aidonia, Wayne Marshall and TOK), the weekly Brand New Machine party in NYC, and events across the U.S., Caribbean and Europe.
