For the second installment of the LargeUp Mix Series (download Vol. 1, Afro Soca, here) in comes the Ganja Special from California-based champion selector King I-Vier representing Jah Warrior Shelter Hi-Fi. In addition to the decades of DJ works throughout California and beyond, I-Vier has been producing and distributing conscious music viaย Royal Order Music, his reggaeย imprint with Jah Yzer, responsible for a slew of huge one drop tunesย the last few years, including J Boog and Sizzla’s “Stand Firm” one of our picks for the best reggae tracks of 2015, as well as Gappy Ranks’ “Carpenter” and ย “Selassie Souljahz” with Chronixx, Protoje, Sizzla and Kabaka Pyramid, to name a few.
