Live from Rocksteady at the Sound Table [download]

Hear what happens at the Sound Table in Atlanta as I deliver a mixture of selections from brand new to deep foundation including roots reggae, dub and lovers rock tunes.  About 28 minutes into the audio Atlanta-based dancehall artist, Dreggae, is well-received by the crowd as he interacts and performs three of his brand new one-drop songs.  I follow with more musical selections and Rocksteady promises to remain a consistent event each month on 1st Sundays in Atlanta.

Original Dancehall Style: DJs from the days of Studio One

Hear some essential works from the 60s and 70s by the predecessors of rappers and today’s dancehall artists. Who was the first DJ (dancehall deejay)? This is often debated and I’m not going to get into the argument, but I personally credit U-Roy as the DJ daddy.

If Daddy U-Roy wasn’t the 1st, then he certainly had the earliest and largest impact with toasting (rapping) over previously recorded instrumentals in the live dancehall setting. Coxsone Dodd, among many other innovations to his credit, pioneered the recording and production of DJs at Studio One.

This mix merely touches upon some of this important dancehall history and I intend to thoroughly exhibit more of the talented foundation artists in future episodes of the Reggae Lover Podcast.

There are too many DJs to name who rose to prominence by delivering rhymes over beats on the Jamaican music scene long before The Sugar Hill Gang’sRapper’s Delight‘ was released in 1979 as the first ever rap record.

Episode 5 – Late 1980s Super Stars of Reggae

Thanks for joining me on this Reggae Lover journey.  This is the 5th episode of the podcast in 3 weeks and I’m truly thankful for the feedback coming. It has been very encouraging.  Each episode has a brief intro andoutro, but I do not talk over the music, nor do I place sound effects over the mixes.  You can actually hear all the songs, the mixing and blending clearly as they are recorded live.Within today’s episode I feature the Super Star Riddim from 1989, the I Need You Riddim from 1987, a nice Delroy Wilson off the More Ideas Riddim (1988), the Enquirer Riddim from 1988 with Sanchez covering Bobby Brown‘s “My Prerogative,” and finally ending off with Singing Melody and Shabba Ranks on the Gal Yu Look Good riddim.

Jamaicans Want More Stitchie!

Jamaicans Want More Stitchie!The lieutenant turned pastor converted the patrons that came out to the 2015 Rainforest Seafood Festival in Montego Bay last Wednesday night. With heavy rain pouring down the massive crowd cheered, danced and applauded as Lt. Stitchie delivered an entertaining, inspirational and humorous set.

When he arrived at the event, Lt. Stitchie and his team were advised that the time allotted to him initially would be reduced to 20 minutes due to the late start. With this in mind Stitchie had no choice but to shorten his performance, something the audience was clearly not happy about.

Stitchie took them on a musical journey, teasing them by doing snippets of some of his biggest hits; “wear yu size”, “natty dread”, “great ambition and more. The lieutenant also did some of his more recent releases, tracks like “man a pastor”, which had the crowd laughing at the comical story lines, “fast and pray” and “Lord Almighty” which captivated them. He also did some new exclusive pieces written specifically for the event.

At the end of his set the veteran Dancehall artist was flooded with requests to make additional appearances in Montego Bay (the city where he got some of his biggest breaks and made some of his biggest changes in music).
