++ TRIBUTE TO JOHN HOLT ++
John Holt passed this week and as his golden voice touched us so deeply we felt it necessary to drop a tribute mix to the man. The Paragons seduced us with Rock Steady - the soaring harmonies and raw emotions of Left With A Broken Heart. We swayed to a solo John Holt as he teamed up with Bunny Lee to Stick By You. He lent his polish to a few roots tune that drove me with flying cymbals. And then he teamed up with Junjo Lawes to drop Police & Helicopter and that yearning romanticism turned dark, militant, unforgiving and mirrored so perfectly the dark under-currents of the time that it almost took my breath away in its utter artistic transformation. To cover the man's career would be impossible, so I just chose a few of my favorite tracks in full acknowledgement of all the ones I will be kicking myself later for not adding. Big Ups to THUNDERLIONS ( http://www.thunderlions.com/ )for their special Deadly Dragon Tribute to John Holt Dubplate that finishes off this mix. R.I.P. John Holt.

++ JUNE 7th - MINI MART HI POWER REUNION MIX!!! ++
THIS SATURDAY JUNE 7th - DEADLY DRAGON and DUB STUY PRESENT:
YESSSSSS!!!!! In the 1980s and early 1990s MINI MART HI POWER ran New York City. Known as the entertainer's Sound System, Mini Mart tapped into the golden age of NYC reggae with their core group of performers as well as the featured artists that would perform alongside them such as Tonto Irie, Shinehead, Screechy Dan, James Bond, Jango Thriller and more. A Mini Mart dance was a guaranteed sell-off as it combined the new digital sounds of the 80s/early 90s with the excitement of the selector/DJ combination that defined the classic Rub-A-Dub dances of the late 70s / early 80s.
As MINI MART Hi POWER will be making their first appearance since the mid 90s, we wanted to put together a Mix showcasing the incredible talent of the MINI MART stable of artists (Sleepy Wonder, Bobo General, Curry Don, Willow Wilson, Sluggy Ranks (R.I.P.), Trevor Sparks (R.I.P.) and Errol T) as well as the artists that will be performing on June 7th (Shinehead, Screechy Dan, James Bond, Tonto Irie and Jango Thriller).
So KEEP the DATE and DON'T BE LATE because the excitement and unique styles of MINI MART HI POWER will return to remind the world just how much NYC contributed and helped to define the aesthetics of Reggae Music all over the world!
