Words by LargeUp Crew—
Each March, Winter Music Conference brings what feels like a majority of the world’s DJs to Miami but amongst all the house, trance and occasional hip-hop going on, dancehall always seems to get left out of the mix. To remedy the situation, this year LargeUp is bringing New York City’s best dancehall party, Rice and Peas, to Ricochet in Miami during WMC. Even better, the event, on Wed. March 21, doubles as a release party for Mr. Vegas’ Sweet Jamaica LP, an easy frontrunner for the year’s best reggae/dancehall album in our collective opinion.
Whoa, gosh. Another Mixtape Mondays is here, peelin back some of the ruffest and tuffest bad boy remixes, vinyl crackles, and dancehall murderation. Let’s get right down to business.

Monday, September 6th was the West Indian Day Parade on Brooklyn’s Eastern Parkway, and although it was a long weekend of festivities, there’s always room for some Rice and Peas! New York’s most diverse dancehall affair goes down every first Monday of the month at Sway in Tribeca and there was a lot of star power inna di building.
