Mighty Crown was our 'special guest' Sound this night on Sound System Fridays.  Check out the archive as Sami T and Ninja Crown made their first 'official' public appearance here in Toronto on their 'Driving Force' Tour.  The pass through on ReggaeMania was truly an honour and it marked the first night of three.  After Sound System Fridays, they were off to The Guvernment Nightclub for Reggae Café which was sold out!  Next up, WHEN DUBS DID NICE 2 on [...]

Sound System Fridays delivered another tight show despite our previously scheduled Sound having to cancel.  We had to come up with a solid alternative, so I asked Spragga Roots (Heatwave) to return once again as host.  He in turn invited Step-A-Choice Sound down to play alongside him. Hmmm, two Sounds sharing the night...to my surprise, it worked!  Both Sounds had been previous hosts during Sound System Fridays so they knew what to expect.  They complemented each other and did a [...]

I must admit, I didn't know much about Klymaxx Sound to give them the proper respect that was due - that's in the past now.  Klymaxx Sound, a Durham (Ajax) Sound, formed in 1992, delivered all the goods on Sound System Fridays last Friday night - by the time they had reached the halfway point of the show, they had already proved to the listening and viewing audience that they are one of Toronto's finest Sounds when it comes to [...]

Big Up Black Reaction who came in fully prepared and represented on Sound System Fridays!  Despite a late start, Black Reaction did not disappoint - they delivered a solid show playing quality dubs.  Super K (selector) is one of the smoothest mixers in Toronto dancehall and MC Blackz, proved once again, why he is rated one of Canada's Top 5 Mic Talkers.  Their effort was flawless - entertaining the listening audience with dubs that brought back 'sweet' memories of some [...]

Big Up Step-A-Choice Sound - hot off the heels of their Sound Rage victory!  They defeated rival Sounds Soul Survival, Lionheart and Ma Gash Intl. last Saturday night at Hickory House sweeping the 'champion' title yet again for the second year in a row.  For those of you asking...no, we did not book Step-A-Choice for Sound System Fridays after they won Sound Rage, we booked them weeks in advance, prior to their win.  Step-A-Choice was riding high and in a [...]

Lexus Superior brought it last night!  A great show with lots of great dubs (no 45's!) and live performances.  Big Up D'Eazy and WEB, selectors of Lexus Superior as well as the artists that performed - Guchi Automatik, Melo and Sherene "Weh Sweet" Bromfield (plus Super Fresh's own - Prophet)! Lexus Sound, born in 1998 out of Washington, DC  - a sound built for war.  D'Eazy lives here now, but, the sound still plays in the DC area.  In Toronto, [...]

Golden Touch Sound gave me forty-five minutes notice that I would have to do the show without them due to the weather conditions.  When I got the call from Dwight, he explained to me, that as a working man, working a traditional 9 - 5 job downtown, it took him two and a half hours to get home, so, making the journey from Mississauga to Scarborough was not something that he could pull off - timing wise.  I completely understood [...]

It was a pleasure to have two quality sounds grace our ReggaeMania Radio studio for Sound System Fridays on January 18th – inside was Jamaica’s legendary Richie Poo representing Silverhawk Sound, alongside Killa D reppin' LP International Sound out of Flatbush, NY.  They were passing through as a prelude to the REAL STEEL event that was scheduled for Saturday night at Hickory House also featuring King Turbo (promoters of the event) and early warm-up by Don Rankin. I was a [...]

Don Rankin brought it last Friday Night - arriving early and bringing their own machine.  MC and Don Rankin President Fouti Rankin was first to select and play the sound, accompanied by his full-time selector Curry.  The crew kept it easy, but, fast tempo for the first half-hour, after overcoming the turbulence, quickly steadied down to deliver one of the more entertaining shows seen on Sound System Fridays. It wouldn't come down to playing 'all dubplates' all night as some [...]

King Judah is a young sound from Scarborough who have already won a 45 clash (where dubs also had to be played) and have achieved the respect from both friends and foes in Toronto's vibrant Sound System fraternity.  To date, they are the youngest sound to make an appearance on ReggaeMania Radio - Sound System Fridays.  The night featured a presentation of dubs and 45's, as this sound would not be drawn into the 'all dubplate' styled shows delivered by [...]
