Rebel Music: Watch Randy Valentine’s “Sound the Alarm” Video

Screen shot 2014-04-08 at 11.40.25 AM

Big tune and explosive new video from the Jamaican-born, UK-residing Randy Valentine. This is definitely an artist we expect to hear a lot more movements from in 2014, as evident by the sick video for his current single “Sound the Alarm” and debut EP dropping this May. The tune is produced by Riga from Hemp Higher as well as the one Jr. Blender from the mighty So Shifty camp in Germany. Following a righteous intro from RV family Lionheart that reminds me of something from the “hip-hopera” Fugee era, the message continues into the heavy one drop chorus and subsequent barrage of lyrics that will immediately draw you in — or in this case make you run for cover. Wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if this tune gets rinsed heavy this summer.

Chronixx is getting everyone hyped for his Dread and Terrible EP, dropping April 1st—remember the the health-conscious track “Spirulina” from last week? Well, today he’s offering LargeUp readers the exclusive chance to listen to the dub version of last year’s big hit “Here Comes Trouble,” one of ten tracks—seven originals, and three dubs—on the EP. The track, which draws on Ini Kamoze’s classic Sly and Robbie collab “Wings With Me,”  is given the proper dub treatment by Rootsman riddim producer Winta James aka Overstand JA.

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.
