Known as Jamaica’s Song Bird and the Prince of Lovers Rock, who is more deserving of a tribute than Sanchez?
Love songs are back again | Reggae Lover Podcast Best of Sanchez mix.
If you’re into reggae music and of a certain age, then Sanchez is probably one of your favorite singers. With a hit-making career that began in the 1980s with a cover of “Lady in Red,” this singer has done it all musically and maintained a classy image throughout. His R&B covers can erase all former knowledge of the original songs.
I have witnessed Sanchez walk onto the stage to close shows and capture the hearts of the crowd by singing just a few notes. As I mentioned in the outro of Episode 57, there are many additional hit songs that could have gone into this such as his combination with Bounty Killer, but I wanted to keep the program close to an hour in length. I could go on, but I’ll spare you the words. It brings me great pleasure to present the Reggae Lover Podcast’s Best of Sanchez Lovers Rock mix.

Listen to Rub-A-Dub ft. HIGHLANDA SOUND, DJ Passport, and DJ Hourglass – 5.14.17 at Wildpitch in ATL, GA.
Rub-A-Dub ft. HIGHLANDA SOUND, DJ Passport, and DJ Hourglass
I pressed record after I had played the 1st song, “Heptones – Get In the Groove,” but essentially this recording begins just as the state-of-the-art WildPitch Music Hall sound system turned on. What you will hear is my opening set in its entirety, but in addition to the cool, original song selection, you should pay attention to the “vibe” – the energy that travels from point zero all the way to a mid-tempo dancing situation almost 2 hours later. It is not a frenzy because of the timing of the set and the theme of the night – RubADub. This is a textbook early warm set where a few things happen:
- Each patron who entered through the door stayed for a few hours and thoroughly enjoyed their experience.
- Each party-goer felt sure that the I was purely focused on making a connection with them from the DJ booth, and personally encouraging them to have a good time while inviting them to free-up and dance.
- Each performer that followed me encountered an audience that was, not burnt out, but already primed and poised to interact, exchange energy, and dance. This meant the party’s energy flowed exceptionally well from start to finish regardless of multiple DJ rotations, and some technical difficulties (Serato software – DJ controller – laptop communication issues I suspect).
In today’s Atlanta reggae scene, the early part of dancehall events & concerts is being overlooked.
In my estimation, this costs the promoters more money because patrons have gradually been conditioned to intentionally arrive later and later. This results in “Primetime” being pushed back to the early morning hours. If your session is ram pack early in the evening with an ever-increasing vibration of energy, your door and bar sales can be maximized. Currently, everyone is obsessed with “Star time” and many events lack the energy of entertainment and good value for money until it’s far too late.
I say it’s time to refocus on the early warm.
Staging quality DJs, Sound Systems, and opening performers who can entertain early arriving guests while prepping them to explode in a high-energy fashion at the appropriate time for the climax, later on, will help us all.
Shift the focus away from looking cute for pics and create a space where dance partners take the night and full-joy the moments they have together. This is the way dancehall used to be back in the days when dance was nice.
I would love to hear your feedback about this topic. What has been your experience with showing up early to events? Were you happy with what you encountered? What is the difference you feel with going out late? Which do you prefer and why?

Reggae Super-Star, Gyptian, announced his departure from VP Records due to the expiration of his contract.
Reggae star Gyptian
The ultra successful Reggae / Dancehall artist, who delivered Billboard topping albums ‘My Name is Gyptian’ in 2006, ‘I Can Feel Your Pain’ in 2008, ‘Hold You’ in 2010 and ‘Sex, Love, and Reggae’ in 2013, as well as earned multiple international awards and a gold-selling single, has reached the decision to move on from his lengthy stay with the label. “It has been a great journey with special memories made and I’m thankful for all the opportunities, but unfortunately I have decided to part ways with VP Music Group.”
The contract offered a clause in which VP Music Group could renew the option to continue making music with Gyptian, and after two years, the artist and his management team realized that this option will not be renewed. From a legal perspective “VP Records for more than two years has failed to render the payment option and operated with malicious intent in its refusal to comply with its contractual obligation.”
As Gyptian embraces the beginning of a new musical chapter in his life, he’s eager to get in the studio and make music under his own label, Ryte Dyrekshan Records. “It’s time I get back to doing what I love which is making music, and time for my fans to hear from me again so I can get out the road and see them. They’ve been asking and begging for new music – time to make that happen.”

Rest In Peace to one of our favorite artists, Garnett Silk. Many may remember Garnett’s silky smooth voice and powerful lyrical content that captivated us in the early nineties and left us wanting more after he flew away home to Zion. Garnett Silk was a Jamaican reggae musician and Rastafarian, known for his diverse, emotive, powerful and smooth voice.
Similarly to The Notorious B.I.G., whom many hail as the greatest rapper ever, Garnett had a short run within the timeline of music history yet his legacy continues to grow. We remember Garnet’s legacy and celebrate his widely acclaimed musical contributions. Garnet Damion Smith (Silk) Sr was born April 2, 1966.

A soundclash is a musical competition where crew members from opposing sound systems pit their skills against each other. Read more from Wikipedia.
Soundclash is Jamaica’s musical sport that has gone global. Clashing is a celebration of reggae sound system culture and well, really a celebration of dubplates – exclusive recordings customized with the DJ/Sounds name mentioned in it.
“It’s really a glorified boxing match, where the public decides who wins. What makes it unique, and what makes you qualified to enter, is that you should have a number of customized recordings made especially for you by artists who are renowned, and those artists must call your name in the recording.”
~ David ‘RamJam’ Rodigan, the UK’s very own soundclash Godfather, a titan of clashing who’s been crushing opponents worldwide for close to 40 years.
A soundclash is one of the most unique live music events you’ll ever see!
