Sommaren 2014 tar vi Karibien till Sverige för att låta sommarnatten vibrera som en gatufest på Jamaica eller en karneval i Trinidad. Safari Sound mixar det största som producerats inom Reggae, Dancehall, Soca och andra tropiska rytmer samtidigt som några av Sveriges främsta artister och dansare turas om att ta plats i strålkastarljuset. Konfetti, visselpipor, eldkastare & flaggor är andra viktiga beståndsdelar när vi åker Sverige runt med ett enda mål; skapa sommarens absolut bästa fest. Ungefär så här kommer det att se ut:
30 april – Flustret, Uppsala – Artister TBA 12 juni – Sticky Fingers, Göteborg – Artister TBA 13 juni – Babel, Malmö – Artister TBA 14 juni – Debaser Medis, Stockholm – Artister TBA 11 juli – Öland Roots, Sandbergen – Lilla Namo & Million Stylez
Last night Safari Sound entered the war arena. This was our first clash and it ended up with the other sound getting locked off. 2014 Safari have several clashes lined up so keep your eyes and ears open.

The deejay who gave New York’s dancehall scene its style and swagger in the 1990s is back, and more prolific than ever. We teamed up with Large Up to present Fiyah Fox, the first-ever mixtape from Red Fox, and his first full-length release in 17 years. Blended in fine style, Fiyah Fox features over an hour of scorchers including all of Red’s latest tunes, brand-new originals, dubplate versions of his classics, hip-hop freestyles and more.
Guests include Shaggy, Rayvon, Naturalee, Gramps Morgan, Screechy Dan, Christopher Martin, Chico, Golden Child and Jimmy Cozier. Red’s always been known for his diverse lyrical themes, and Fiyah Fox definitely touches all of the bases, from culture tunes to dancefloor fillers and even a little much-needed comedy.
Visit Large Up (or the link below) , download Fiyah Fox, keep an eye out for Large Ups in-depth interview with Red, and, if you’re be in NYC tonight, make sure you visit the Fiyah Fox release party at the new-and-improved Brand New Machine party at The Delancey.
We’ve teamed up with Large Up and one of our favorite artists, the Brooklyn don Red Fox, in order to create Red Fox first ever mixtape. The mix will be available online November 21st but you can get a taste of it now. Log on to Large Up and read all about it.
