Industry Shakedown Radio Show 1yr Anniversary.

Congrats to my dudes Pay Jay and Solace on the one year anniversary of their college radio show “Industry Shakedown Radio”. I give them credit for sticking with their show and format even when the program director was giving them hell.

I was originally just supposed to spin music in between the performances at their anniversary show, but ended up responsible for all the sound and music for the night.  It was a fun and challenging night that all in attendance enjoyed.

I’m still not sure what happened to Dallas Penn who was supposed to host the event.

Thanks to my dude Dj Stackswell, Angel of the Mona Passage and the cool ass sound man who defended us when his boss gave him hell about the volume and bass.

Check out a few of the videos that popped up on the net from the Sputnik show below.

Reggae Rewind: JR. Cat 1985

Next time you hear Mavado’s “I’m So Special”  or Serani’s “No Games” for the 100,000,000th time, think back and remember the early days of Dance Hall music.  It’s sure come a long way.

Check this video of Super Cat’s little brother, borrowing the elder Cat’s style and most likely clothes!

Mims drops his Obama Song.

Mr. Mims gets political with Reggae Super Legend Jr. Reid.

After this song, I expect more Obama themed music to come out, but all praises due to the first people to pay homage to Mr. Obama.  Which I first told you about here.

I had the pleasure of hearing Cocoa Tea’s song live, at a big Reggae event in Queens called “Irie Jamboree” this past Labor Day weekend.

It was an honor to feel the electric vibe of the crowd and his lyrics.
