++ 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!

++ DEADLY DRAGON TRIBUTE TO JUNIOR "SOUL" MURVIN R.I.P. ++
This one goes out to one of our favorite singers of all time: Junior "Soul" Murvin who passed away this week. From the Rock Steady Cuts he did with Derrick Harriot to his epic Lee Perry produced tunes to the Digital Masterpieces he crafted in the 80s, Jr. Murvin carried a unique style that, no matter how ethereal sounded, was tied to the day-to-day experiences of the sufferers. This mix is not intended to be a "best-of" or anything like that, just a group of tunes we love. Everything on this mix was recorded live and direct with vinyl sweet vinyl but I tacked on the last tune - "Cross-Over" from Marmalade166's You Tube Channel because I couldn't find my copy of the tune! So enjoy the mix and Big Blessings to Junior Murvin for providing such inspirational music

July 31, 2013 09:21 AM PDT
On Saturday, August 3rd, 2013 Deadly Dragon Sound and Dub Stuy Records present...
First up we haveTony Screw - DownBeat the Ruler. Since the early 70s DownBeat has been entertaining and educating crowds from Brooklyn to Berlin with his inimitable blend of stage presence, exclusive dubplates and a second sense for keeping a dance floor packed. Downbeat the Ruler Sound has introduced generations of reggae fans to the sounds of Studio One, the blueprint of Jamaican music.
Next up, we are proud to present, for the first time in NYC, TOMMY FAR EAST (SOLID ROCK JAPAN): Hailing from Tokyo, Japan and the youngest selector on the bill, Tommy Far East has become known throughout the world for both his tremendous archive of original Ska and Rocksteady vinyl and the absolute joy he has in sharing it with audiences throughout the world.
And finally a man who has taught we here at Deadly Dragon so much about music, about tunes, about that weird alternate cut to that Studio One selection that you can never remember the name of -- JAH WISE of TIPPATONE SOUND. JAH WISE has been involved in Jamaican music ever since Ska was first invented. Growing up in West Kingston, Jamaica with his brother, singer Cornell Campbell, he has been continually playing with sound systems since 1967. As the top selector for Tippatone, Jah Wise has selected for every legendary deejay from Big Youth to Dr. Alimantado and beyond.
And of course, we Deadly Dragon folks will be flinging down a few tunes to keep things proper!
