- Words: Patric Fallon

Called LargeUp, the fresh online hub covers the realms of dancehall, reggae, dub, hip-hop, and soca music, among other similar sounds, and also produces an internet TV show, which has already featured the likes of Mr. Lexx and Diplo in its episodes. You can check out those two shows below, and watch more LargeUp TV here.
