Bunji-Garlin-LargeUp-Sessions-3

We’re back tonight with the first 2014 edition of the LargeUp Sessions with DJ Gravy (huge shouts to the one DJ Rampage for holding us down last week!) on RadioLily.com, with co-hosts Jesse Serwer and Jah Banks. But first, we’ve still got some old LargeUp Sessions business to share, from what was easily one of the livest editions of 2013.

LargeUp TV: Bunji Garlin “Differentology” Live With The Roots

Words by Michellee Nelson~Bunji Garlin live with The Roots LargeUp

Brooklyn Bowl mash up! The Viking of Soca, Bunji Garlin, joined The Roots (!) and the LargeUp crew for a performance of his hit song “Differentology” at Monday night’s Okayplayer Holiday Jam. For many in the audience, it was their first taste of soca music, and we’re certain it won’t be their last, especially with “Differentology” blazing up the airwaves across the East Coast.

With help from his wife, Trini soca star Fay Ann Lyons-Alvarez on backing vocals (and Mr. Vegas, handling MC duties after performing “Heads High,” plus dancer extraordinaire Miss Likklebit) Bunji turnt Brooklyn Bowl all the way up, freestyling over the Roots interpretation of the “Differentology” riddim, and showing us just why he has one of the most popular soca tunes of the year.

Words by Natalie Weiner—

Miles_Glass
Miles Regis is an LA-based, Trinidad-born visual artist whose work is being featured at the Art of Fusion MIA exhibition as part of the Art Basel Miami festival. Regis comes from a family of artists, who encouraged his artistic ambitions in a variety of different media. Although he painted as a teenager, he achieved initial recognition as a vocalist in Trinidad, working as the lead singer in bands Kysofusion and Fireflight. It wasn’t until after he got a degree in creative writing from USC that he began to paint, getting his first big break when one of his pieces was featured in Erykah Badu’s “Next Lifetime” video.
