LargeUp Premiere: Jus Now’s “One Time” Video

Words by Jesse Serwer—

JusNow-OneTimeEP

Occupying a space between power soca, steelpan and the freakiest outer limits of U.K. dance music, “One Time” is the debut single from Jus Now, the Anglo-Trinidadian duo of Interface (of Bristol, England) and LAZAbeam (of T&T). As jarring as the song’s unique sound is the accompanying video, a manic trip through Port of Spain’s streets, roti shops, parrot’s nests and a dojo full of karate kids. We’ve seen some ambitious soca videos this Carnival season, but this is some really next-level business.

The winner of eight Carnival Road March titles and a record five Soca Monarch titles will make his first entry into the competition in over a decade next month, going head-to-head against his own daughters and son-in-law, Bunji Garlin.

LargeUp Investigates: Trinidad James

Words by Jesse Serwer—

If you follow rap music closely, you’ve probably heard the name Trinidad James come up recently. Essentially unknown a few months ago, the Atlanta rapper has a sudden swell of hype around him, thanks to his mixtape Don’t Be S.A.F.E., and his flamboyant fashion sense.
