Sniper Sound gets a 'thumbs up' for their performance on Sound System Fridays this past Friday Night.  I was pleased that they "brought it" despite arriving late and failing to deliver an artiste to perform live.  From the time they touched their Itch console (after 10 PM) 'til their end of show interview with myself (11:50 PM), they did so for about 110 minutes, not the 180 minutes that they would've played had they arrived and started on time (9:00 [...]

I'm surprised how many people had never heard of Twin Star International (judging from our Chat room on ReggaeMania.com), but, after the show was done, it was clear that Twin Star International, though relatively unknown, must be ranked as one of Toronto's Top 10 Sounds.  Friday's show was madd from start to finish - nuff big chunes, wicked speech, braggin', boasting, cussing and dissing!  The entire broadcast is a nice example of a hype selector delivering a solid radio show, [...]

I had previous conversations with Fadda Kat - MC and DJ for Hamilton's Kat Attack Sound and was well aware that I was dealing with a very confident and self-assured selector, despite having only heard this Sound once before.  Kat, with his short but sweet performance on Sound System Fridays left no doubts, his Sound is primed and ready to stand up to any Sound that thinks that they can come and test! Once Kat took control of his music [...]

King Attarney Sound gets full props for their show this past Friday on Sound System Fridays.  Despite being an 'overstocked' Champion Sound, they are often forgotten about by Toronto promoters because they are a Hamilton Sound (out of sight, out of mind) and they don't kiss ass, mine included.  That aside, there is so much depth to the King Attarney box - Father Phantom (owner), as youthful and energetic as he could be, still aims high and remains positive when [...]

Rosa's been in the Sound system business for decades, yet he still stands strong in today's Reggae and Dancehall Scene.  Soul 2 Soul is Canada's longest running Reggae Sound system that is still very active and plays worldwide.  I give this Sound respect as they are constantly rebranding themselves to stay relevant where as other Sound systems fade away or are forced to retire. They have many reasons to brag and boast, including being the sole Canadian agent/rep. for Jamaica's [...]

Big Up Lion Heart Sound for reppin' on Sound System Fridays!  I had seen them compete at GTA CUP CLASH April 15th so I knew what they were capable of.  Once they arrived, Hamma (DJ) set up and went straight to work, or should I say play - LOL!  For the first forty-five minutes or so, Hamma went solo, dropping big chunes and dubs.  He really loves his music, it's evident in his performance - he moves to his riddims, [...]

Tonight, Sound System Fridays was suppose to feature guest Sound - Vertex Sound, to no avail.  I received a call from Breadfruit at 6:30 PM telling me that the Sound would not be playing tonight as someone spilled coffee on their laptop.  Left without sufficient time to book another Sound, I had no choice but to play.  I dropped 'oldies' for the majority of the show as a tribute to the many styles of tunes that are heard on Sound [...]

I gotta admit, I didn't know much about VIP Sound prior to their debut on ReggaeManiaRadio - Sound System Fridays.  I remember, it was around 9:15 PM or so and I had my back turned to the door of the studio as I was playing the 'early warm' set.  Suddenly, my instinct told me to turn around - once I did, I saw the whole VIP crew standing there (with Killa wearing a bandana over his face) - it was [...]

Our Good Friday Sound System Fridays show featured three Sounds - Exodus Nuclear (JA, USA + CAN) who were booked for the show, Stone Love (JA) - passing through and Kingshine International (USA) - passing through.  I started the show off playing an 'early warm' set (first hour) as Exodus Nuclear was running late.  Once they arrived, they still needed time to prepare.  Eventually, they got their stuff together, set up and played.  Born forty years ago in Jamaica, this [...]

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 [...]
