LargeUp Premiere: Jr. Blender Remixes Rihanna’s “Diamonds”

Words by DJ Theory—

Hamburg, Germany producer Jr. Blender (of So Shifty and Supersonic Sound fame) strikes again, this time putting in work on two Rihanna tunes. Honestly this dude could remix every one of Rihanna’s tunes for the span of her career and I wouldn’t be the least bit mad… He was kind enough to drop these new versions off for us to share with you—one a sparkling reggae verion of her current anthem “Diamonds“, the other a one drop drum edit for the DJs of the already reggae-inspired “No Love Allowed.” Rihanna’s voice and Bajan background naturally lean towards reggae, and it seems to work particularly well in the capable hands of Jr. Blender (let’s not forget his flawless rendition of “Where Have You Been“). DJs and Rihanna fans need to get with both of these pronto. Stream and download below—for more downloads, pass thru Blenders personal stash here.

Rihanna GQ outtake

Rihanna is the bad girl everyone loves to hate, and hates to love. Regardless of how you feel about her, her album, Unapologetic, which dropped on November 19, has everybody talking. (And if it doesn’t, the topless outtakes from her new GQ cover—see above—probably does).

Lift Off: Stream Cris Cab x Wyclef’s “She’s So Fly”

Words by Emily Shapiro—

The PUSH Artist of the Week, MTV’s initiative to highlight and support new talent in the music industry, recently put its spotlight on Cris Cab, but Large Up has been following the 19-year-old Miami artist for a while now. While Cab’s voice has an emo quality to it, his songs often have a pop reggae vibe not unlike that of his mentor and collaborator, Wyclef. Earlier this year, the pair collaborated on “Rihanna’s Gun,” a smooth response to “Man Down” also featuring Mavado that got our attention definitely took Cab out of any box we might have placed him in.

LargeUp Premiere: So Shifty Remix I-Octane’s “We Love The Vibes” (+ Bonus Rihanna Remix)

Words by DJ Theory—

German bad boys So Shifty are back with more heat, this time touching on some tropical moombahton territory for the club/pool (or both, if you’re lucky). They’ve been casually reworking tunes from the likes of Major Lazer, Busy, Kartel, TOK, U-Roy, The Very Best, the yours truly-produced single with Jahdan Blakkamoore and too many more, and for this they flip I-Octane‘s big summertime dancehall tune “We Love The Vibes” in a whole new direction yet again. With Toddla T and Young Lion already running it on their BBC Radio 1 programs, this moombahton/dancehall crossover should start catching on very soon and no doubt become a summer favorite, in a similar vein to the Major Lazer “Party Shot” remix. Download the ting below, IT SICK!
