The Shank I Sheck originally was a 1964/1965 Ska instrumental by Baba Brooks with production by King Edward on the Rio Records label. Rio is a subsidiary of Direct Records Ltd. and later Doctor Bird which like the other top Jamaican labels of the 1960’s had most of their releases distributed by Trojan Records. There have been hundreds of songs released on various versions of this instrumental over the decades with many top rated hits peaking in the 1980s and 1990s. The riddim track was a favorite for deejays and singers to perform over and a huge dub plate riddim for sound system selectors to record dub plates on as well.

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.

Look out for RUB-A-DUB ATL (reggae music) at Wildpitch Music Hall (255 Trinity Ave, ATL) every month (Second Sundays).
As you may know if you have visited this blog before, myself and The Honorary Citizen are producers of a successful 100% reggae event concept, Rub-A-Dub, which occurs on the second Sunday of every month in downtown Atlanta.
As resident DJs at Rub-A-Dub, DJ Passport and I have invited different guests to partake in the non-mainstream vibe each month.
This is truly a unique concept, not just for the soundtrack, but especially because of this list of selectors to have performed at Rub-A-Dub:
- Cartel Sound with Philip 5
- DJ Empress Rah
- Yahquan Da Travellah
- DJ Hourglass
- DJ Redds from Spectrum Disco
- Funkregulator Celo (456 Sound)
- DJ Lion
- Empress Movements with Tach
- SuperPEC Archangel
Lion of Judah Sound and Nijah Don get credit for assists as well.
You might want to check in at one of these events if you even remotely like reggae music because I have more heavy weight guest sounds coming in to play for you “inna Rub-A-Dub style.”
Cartel Sound and SuperPEC will be featured on July 10 so expect to hear great selections, and solid mixing for FREE all night. That’s right there will be no cover charge for #RUBADUBATL through summer 2016.
Sign-up to get updates and special offers for all of my events.
