Hallow Point Sound hosted Sound System Fridays this past Friday – fresh off their ‘Rising Stars’ Sound clash win at Hickory House. Hallow Point believed deep down that they would take the trophy, boldly telling me so a week prior to the clash in a private conversation. Big Up the crew – Dino, Hype Ras and Gary! They showed up on time, ready to play – reppin’ for the Hallow Point fam and did so for three hours plus.
It was an aight show for Hallow Point, who stated “nuttin’ nuh play yet” two hours into their three hour show. Dino was laid back during this show, a little more confident now about using his highly criticized Itch laptop software to play Hallow Point’s music. I would like to provide a detailed analysis of this Sound’s musical presentation at Sound System Fridays, but, honestly, from where I stood, it didn’t seem to matter. People at our ReggaeMania Radio studio were in a festive mood and were there for a celebration – this was Hallow Point’s victory party of sorts and the ‘bar’ it seemed, was fully stocked!
Ironically, Hallow Point had been booked to play Sound System Fridays two weeks prior to their ‘Rising Stars’ clash win – win or lose, we were going to see them perform. Congratulations to Hallow Point Sound – this was their first clash ever and they pulled it off – victory! Nobody remembers who comes in 2nd Place.
Big Up the guests in the studio – Big Dawy from Bassline Sound, Maput and Danny (Management), Shefton, Hamma from Lion Heart Sound, Champu, Rondine, Horace, Gaza and one more person – Mr. Peter Rankin – the live artiste who’s performance was extraordinary! Watch the podcast and you’ll understand what I’m talking about. Peter Rankin is a veteran artiste who has been spending most of his time in Jamaica, people here forgot just how talented this artiste is, but, not anymore – peep the video! Once again, Big Up Hallow Point Sound, their journey has just begun!
