Reggae Lover History part 2 – The Evolution

In the previous Reggae Lover episode, we described the foundation of Highlanda Sound. This show chronicles what happened from our first gig to present.

In the late ’90s, the three young lions that started Highlanda Sound vowed to become one of the most dangerous sound systems that played mostly 45s. We committed to learning and practicing the arts of selecting and juggling in the dancehall arena. We set out to bring a different level of energy to the scene in Atlanta. We prided ourselves on being versatile enough to entertain any type of crowd.
We accomplished all that and more. Listen to the evolution that led to this podcast.
