Interviews with King Barrow

Wed, 03 Feb 2010 06:24:37 +0000

Big Mikey Dread has posted part two of his epic interview session with Steve Barrow over on his Pod-O-Matic site — Barrow is one of the coolest guys ever, and it’s a treat to listen to both what he has to say and the tunes he’s playing. If those three hours aren’t enough for you, [...]

Silverhawk is back

Thu, 19 Nov 2009 07:02:23 +0000

This message showed up in the comments a few days ago, but it’s worth a post. HAWK! Many fans and historians of the dancehall sound system genre who have dreamt of a re-launch of the now late Wycliffe “Steely” Johnson created Silverhawk Sound, might see their dream become reality. Early summer 2009 brought a slew of [...]

Federation salutes Steely

Sat, 26 Sep 2009 00:48:02 +0000

I usually keep an eye on Federation Sound’s podcast Federation Invasion just to keep up and latest and greatest new tunes that are coming out. However, last week they went back in time and did a fantastic Steely & Clevie special that is absolutely mandatory listening. Two hours of awesomeness! Check it out here.

Cyan Hold We Dung

And we’re back! I need to clean up some stylesheets and deal with a few other details, but at least all the old posts are recovered. Perhaps it would be a good time to do a bit of redesign here.

Spam attack!

Sun, 13 Sep 2009 19:09:40 +0000

Some of you who follow this blog in your favorite RSS reader may have noticed my last post turning into spam for various drugs. Looks like I’ve been hit with a WordPress exploit that let some spammer inject that crap into the database. I thought I got rid of it, but it seems to have [...]

Steely RIP

Mon, 07 Sep 2009 19:10:58 +0000

Not too much left to be said about the fact that Steely, one half of production duo Steely & Cleevie, died a few days ago from pneumonia. These guys are two of my favorite producers and their impact on dancehall music should not be underestimated. Steely played keyboard with The Roots Radics and engineered at Jammy’s [...]

Hollywood Bowl Reggae Night 2009

Mon, 31 Aug 2009 00:06:04 +0000

Well, this happened a couple of weeks ago, but I finally got around to writing something about it. Enjoy. So I managed to get to the annual reggae night at The Hollywood Bowl this year too. Gregory Isaacs was playing so I thought it would be a good opportunity to see him before he dies. Ironically [...]

Time for Major Lazer

Fri, 10 Jul 2009 04:30:29 +0000

I had to obey music blogger rules and go get the Major Lazer album. What’s the worst thing that could happen? I write a snarky review about how these damn kids nowadays don’t understand what good music is and need to get off my lawn, right? No need though, it’s a good record. Not 100% [...]

Everybody move like a robot

Sat, 27 Jun 2009 22:45:07 +0000

I picked up this 45 with the hope that it would be all call for all dance crews to do the Robot, but the lyrics turned out to be more about how modern day people need to slow down and take it easy. Still it’s a pretty tasty piece of vinyl. Released on the label [...]
