Live audio recorded at #BeReggae6 featuring Highlanda Sound on stage.
This event was crazy fun! It was 90-100 degrees in ATL, but I’m not complaining – I love the summer vibes. I played familiar songs to set the pace, and then featured new music (nuff Lila Ike, new Buju, Koffee, Tarrus Riley etc.) for the last half of my round.
This episode of the Reggae Lover podcast produced by Highlanda Sound features a discussion with top-rated reggae promoter and videographer David “Driveway Cam.”

Driveway shares best practices for networking, marketing, and building a community using social media. We talk about his passion for dancehall culture, the mission to showcase Atlanta talent, and much more.
If you want a movement to go a certain way you need other people to help you get there. It is never on yourself.
No matter how much blood sweat and tears you put into it, If you don’t have a team or supporters, you only can go so far.
It’s a marketing strategy. If people know you’re willing to support them, then they’re more likely to support you.
