The Large x Fresh Fruit

The Large dropped her new mix late Friday afternoon and we had to post it this weekend because it’s that good. The Fresh Fruits mix combines all that she loves dancehall, soca and its musical cousins. Exclusives from Murlo, Rizzla and more and drops from Machel and more. This mix is great and will be in the running for best of the year. There is such a great balance of stuff on here and many slept on songs. For example Spice’s Nincompoo which won’t get as much love as it should from other musical outlets. Go listen to it now, also artwork by Robin Clare is not to be sniffed at.

Art in The Dancehall reaches London

Art in the dancehall

The Large of Shimmy Shimmy and Al Fingers have been working extremely hard to bring us Art in The Dancehall, and we are really excited to see the fruits of their labour tonight at the London launch at Puma Yard. The exhibition recently spent a few weeks in Birmingham where it was well received but we are really excited to see it reach London. The exhibition focuses on Jamaican music art and illustration from the 1980s to the present day and features the work of Tony Mc Dermott (who created the artwork for Roots Manuva & Wrongtom’s Duppy Writer & Gregory Isaac’s Midnight Confidential) , HDD favourite  Limonius and new school artist Robin Clare amongst others. Unfortunately tickets for the launch are sold out but if you are at Puma Yard between now and August 12th be sure to check it out.
