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 Saturday night at On The Rox and then a gig on Sunday night at Tryst Nightclub.
There’s not much to say about this broadcast. Mighty Crown is a World Sound with nothing to prove. They played rather conservatively this night and just let the dubs speak – Sami and Ninja Crown didn’t have much to say. I guess they were tired since they had just arrived at Pearson in the afternoon and had lots of preperation to do for this tour. I managed to get a short interview with them – this helped ease up the vibes in the studio. Big Up Mighty Crown for passing through Sound System Fridays! Honestly, I expected a bit more in terms of tunes and speech. Playing on the Radio is more opportunistic than playing ‘early warm’ in a dance where people are just starting to arrive.
