Research Your Own Experiences

Kahlil Wonda and AGARD explore questions such as:

  • Is someone “closed-minded” if they choose a particular lane?

  • How does the music you listen to really affect you?

  • Should one consume all the forms of music or media available, or is it wiser to live in a self-imposed bubble?

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.

Women In Reggae (Selectors Edition)

London Based DJ AYITO schools the Reggae Lover team on the Roots, Dub, and Steppas scene in the U.K. plus her journey as a rising female selector in a male-dominated industry.

“No matter what I go through, no matter how bad my day… as soon as I play [Reggae] music it just takes away all of the pain. It doesn’t only take the pain away, it just replaces it with pure joy and bliss. It’s a spiritual thing for me. I know it may sound a bit extreme, but I think this is the closest I can get to meeting God. It’s that feeling that [Reggae] injects in me.” ~ AYITO
