The event was called "Dub Fi Dub" (a Doogle Myer Promotion), and in classic Sound clash style, there would only be two Sounds 'clashing' it out @ 40 Hanlon (Woodbridge, ON) – Toronto’s Soul Survival Sound featuring MC Bumpy Rage & Junior Selector vs Young Hawk Sound featuring MC & Selector Jamie Hype out of Bronx, NY. The clash started around 1:10 AM and was comprised of four rounds.  The first two rounds clocked in at twenty minutes per Sound, [...]

Big Up Tonya P who performed live at Waterfalls last Saturday night in celebration of her birthday!  The show was tight and well executed - Tonya performed well and gave it her all for the intimate crowd that gathered to share in her 'special' day and to show their support for local Reggae talent including the opening artistes I Brilliance and others...I missed that part of the show due to my late arrival.  Tonya has become a seasoned performer in [...]

I'm glad I took in this Chronixx show at the Opera House, me along with the other 800 - 900 people who were also in the 'house' on this perfect holiday long weekend Sunday night.  Chronixx was a treat to see live, and for any who may have underestimated the depth and strength of this artist, guess what - Chronixx performed for a solid 90-plus minutes and had the crowd in his hands for the majority of the set. Chronixx [...]

Seems like I missed the best part of this event as I arrived late due to my Saturday Night ReggaeMania radio show on 100.7 CHIN-FM.  It's funny how first impressions are just that - when I first walked in, everyone was slow dancing, swaying to the music (Classic Soul), giving me the feeling of being inside a formal ball versus a Reggae dance. Steele's annual Birthday  Gala saw the place jam packed with people smiling, laughing and enjoying themselves.  Gone [...]

GTA CUP CLASH @ 40 Hanlan Rd. 04.13.13 – Review & Pics

By | 2017-09-17T10:23:22+00:00 April 15th, 2013|2013 Pics, Entertainment News, Hot Pics|

The GTA CUP CLASH - The Final Episode featured four young and upcoming Sounds competing for the title and trophy - Ghetto Star vs Killer Assassin vs Bassline vs Cumtraxx.  I arrived a little late due to my Saturday Night ReggaeMania radio show (100.7 CHIN-FM) - it ended at Midnight, so I missed the First Round - 'No Elimination'.  I saw most of  the Second Round, where the four Sounds clashed their hearts out infront of a modest crowd (less [...]

Hot Pics – Stone Love @ Surface Nightclub (The Guvernment) 03.30.13

G-Fuss has travelled all over the world to represent the Stone Love Sound and tonight, he would be playing for the massive at Surface Nightclub (The Guvernment).  Once arriving, it was just a matter of studying the crowd and making the necessary musical adjustments to please them.  G-Fuss played two thirty minute sets showcasing Top 40 Reggae hits to please the young ladies in the crowd.  In my opinion, the focus wasn't on Stone Love per se, as half of [...]

Big Up Rudeboy Sound and its selector - Angelina Montana!  She came to Sound System Fridays fully stocked and delivered a nice show full of big chunes, dubplates and live performances. In the house was Bigga Boss (Sniper Sounds), who was very entertaining once taking the mic late in the show.  Performing live is second nature for Fatman aka Bigga Boss and even though he can be very raw and stink, I had figured that tonight he would tame his [...]

The Tryst Nightclub gig for Mighty Crown marked their final night of a three night stint in Toronto for their 'Driving Force' Tour.  By now, all the hype and hysteria that surrounded them and their performance at WHEN DUBS DID NICE 2 (where they delivered Johnny Osbourne and Brigidier Jerry) had died down.  Coming off a night like this didn't stop them - they played two twenty minute sets. I'm not sure if they were tired from the night before [...]

I arrived at the venue a little after 10 PM to see Mighty Crown on stage in the middle of their ‘early warm’ set.  It was still early, but, those in attendance were the first wave of people to come and build the scene.  The order of the night was Super Fresh, King Turbo, Poison Dart and the Far East Rulaz - Mighty Crown.  We had the hostess with the mostess, Ms. Tasha Rozez - she held her own throughout [...]

Reggae Cafe was a nice party - the people in attendance like their Reggae and love to dance too!  Older Reggae seemed to be the flavour of the night.  It was a sold out gig and it marked Mighty Crown's second Toronto appearance since they touched down on Canadian soil earlier that day.  It seemed as if Sami T. and Ninja Crown weren't 100 % there - Ninja struggled to read the crowd.  In the end, he was saved by [...]
