Words by Kaya.lah—

The incomparable Walshy Fire of Major Lazer and Black Chiney fame (and an esteemed LargeUp contributor) teams up with roots powerhouse I-Grade Records to give the massive a great sampler journey through Midnite’s new release, Beauty for Ashes, out today. Walshy takes us on a trip through the 13 album tracks produced by the Zion-I Kings, plus two more exclusive tracks from the Crucian roots stalwart, with production by the immortal Augustus Pablo and Zion-I Kings, respectively. In a nice touch, the mix ends on a tribute to the late Bunny Rugs, heard via a drop and a sample of Third World’s “96 Degrees.”

You Rate It: Major Lazer + Sean Paul – “Come On To Me”

Sean Paul Major Lazer Ultra

Major Lazer is certainly not hurting for star power on their upcoming EP, Apocalypse Soon. First we heard from Pharrell on the addictive track “Aerosol Can,” and a new collaboration with dancehall superstar Sean Paul has dropped ahead of the EP’s Feb. 25th release this week, just as Sean released his sixth studio album, Full Frequency.

LargeUp Premiere: Slum Village – “Fall In Love” (Suns of Dub Remix)

Words by Jesse Serwer— Suns-of-Dub-Major-Lazer

Suns of Dub’s mix of Slum Village’s “Fall In Love” was easily one of our favorite tunes on their self-titled mixtape, premiered right here in December. There’s no real rocket science involved: Suns (at the suggestion of mixtape producer Walshy Fire) had their Addis Pablo play on top of the J Dilla-produced instrumental, creating a conversation between Addis’ melodica (in place of T3 and Baatin’s verses) and Dilla’s haunting hook.

In honor of J Dilla Month (the late producer’s 40th birthday was Feb. 7, and he also passed away during the month of February), Suns of Dub have shared the remix, available for the first time as a standalone track. Cop it below, hear more from Suns of Dub at their Soundcloud and go behind the scenes with Addis (son of the late Augustus Pablo) and Sons of Dub cohort Ras Jammy in our “Meditations” documentary series.

All manners of vibes this week from deranged dubplates to festival forwards to high grade one drop. Dig in below.

If there’s anything we learned about Addis Pablo and his crew Suns of Dub in the last year, it’s that they are prolific. Following a busy 2013 that ended with a Major Lazer-produced mixtape, our Meditations documentary series and a performance with The Roots at the Okayplayer Holiday Jam, Addis is kicking off 2014 with a trio of limited-edition vinyl, pre-release singles, “Walls of Jericho,” “One Love, One Heart, One Family” and “Wareika Mystic,” via Holland’s Jah Solid Rock label.
