A Cry for Peace | Reggae Lover Podcast Episode 92

A cry for peace from global reggae artists in a mix dedicated to all reggae lovers.

This is crucial for today’s society. The climate we exist in right now is one of escalating violence. War is on the rise throughout my beloved Caribbean islands and the areas where many of us live.

I definitely want to send condolences to all the people who lost loved ones to violence. Gun violence is a hot topic with so many active shooter situations, police brutality, turf wars in the ghetto, the war on drugs, domestic violence, and genocide. It’s my hope that playing this music will help.

All human life is precious and it’s important that we manage our emotions so that we don’t do anything we live to regret. To hurt somebody else is to hurt yourself. You don’t have to be a victim of your environment. It is possible to make a better decision and rise above your circumstances.

Love is the answer. The wages of sin is death. The gift of God is eternal life. Let’s come together in peace. Make amends with an enemy. Turn an enemy into a friend. Teach the younger ones a better way so that they can come up in a better world. They are the future.

With so many things going on in the world today I don’t want to turn on the news. I know for some of you it hard to leave your house or move around where you live. The violence is a real thing but remember God is there with you. Remember reggae music is here to help you through. Its a blessing, so I hope that you enjoy this music. 

I hope that it can help in some positive way. Thank you so much for listening to Reggae Lover by Highlanda Sound.  Shouts out to Mrs. Wonda.

Frankie Paul Tribute | Reggae Lover Podcast 58

Frankie Paul Tribute | Reggae Lover Podcast 58

Frankie Paul, the late great dancehall icon sang many classic tunes that will forever extend his legacy.

HIGHLANDA SOUND #Reggae 58 - Reggae Lover Podcast - Frankie Paul Tribute

Frankie Paul Tribute | Reggae Lover Podcast 58 | Download links and tracklist are below

I was inspired to pay tribute to FP because of his beloved voice and his great body of work in the music industry, but unfortunately, he passed away prior to this episode being released.  If you are missing Frankie Paul, go ahead and listen to this mix for some upliftment and celebrate our fallen general. Buy his music, share it, and play it. Look into his life story if you are unfamiliar. You will see that foundation reggae artists and musicians do not get their proper due.  In far too many cases their careers are “unsung” and their contributions are underrated and forgotten.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Frankie Paul’s family and loved ones and I hope that he receives as much recognition as he deserves for being one of the quintessential figures in the history of reggae, Jamaica’s greatest claim to fame. There are many other trailblazers that need to be highlighted and honored. Thank you for taking some time out to download or stream Reggae Lover Podcast Episode 58, a Tribute to Frankie Paul, and a dedication to the reggae lover in you.

Classic Highlanda Sound early warm with Kahlil Wonda selecting, mixing, and eventually talking followed by DJ Passport of THC International and DJ Hourglass from the WERC Crew. #rubadubatl

Rub-A-Dub ft. HIGHLANDA SOUND, DJ Passport and DJ Hourglass – 5.14.17 – Live Audio

Listen to Rub-A-Dub ft. HIGHLANDA SOUND, DJ Passport, and DJ Hourglass – 5.14.17 at Wildpitch in ATL, GA.

RUB-A-DUB LIVE AUDIO FT. HIGHLANDA SOUND

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:

  1. Each patron who entered through the door stayed for a few hours and thoroughly enjoyed their experience.
  2. 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.
  3. 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?

Hear what happens at the Sound Table in Atlanta as I deliver a mixture of selections from brand new to deep foundation including roots reggae, dub and lovers rock tunes.  About 28 minutes into the audio Atlanta-based dancehall artist, Dreggae, is well-received by the crowd as he interacts and performs three of his brand new one-drop songs.  I follow with more musical selections and Rocksteady promises to remain a consistent event each month on 1st Sundays in Atlanta.

Major Lazer remixes Bunji Garlin: Differentology

2

Ragga Soca king, Bunji Garlin is poised for his greatest worldwide success with “Differentology,” the biggest hit to emerge from 2013’s Caribbean Carnival season.

Already the recipient of multiple International Soca Monarch awards in his native Trinidad, Bunji has not rested on his laurels. He maintains a steady international touring schedule and continues to push the sonic envelope with edgy soca tunes like “Differentology.”

The genre-bending song also caught the attention of Major Lazer, who immediately jumped on the remix. The song (which is featured on Major Lazer’s SoundCloud) is currently the DJ supergroup’s go-to track to open all of their live shows and has helped fuel the buzz to a crossover audience.
