Black Chiney's Walshy Fire has just dropped the second volume of his (sort of) monthly mix series for RiddimStream. It's got plenty of big new tunes, including our very own Flatlands riddim so we suggest that you CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD it. Walshy is a wicked selector, Black Chiney is a wicked sound, and they support our music, so support them.

 

Newness from our friends at Equiknoxx Music. Check out the Jim Screechie medley video featuring T.O.K., J.O.E., Timberlee, Kemikal, Shanz, Versatile, Spice and RDX. No Aidonia "Jackhammer" in the medley? Kinda strange, but who knows... Big riddim, big tunes, big video.

Below is the complete New York Times obituary for Gregory Isaacs, written by Rob Kenner, published on October 25, 2005.

Gregory Isaacs, reggae's "Cool Ruler," whose aching vocals and poignant lyrics about love and loss and ghetto life endeared him to fans of Caribbean music, died on Monday at his home in London. He was 60.

The cause was lung cancer, said his wife, June Isaacs, who lives in Kingston, Jamaica.

 Cat Coore, the guitarist and cellist for the seminal reggae band Third World, has called Mr. Isaacs "the Frank Sinatra of Jamaica" for his elegant vocal phrasing. But as the singer's friend and former manager Don Hewitt observed, "It goes further than that, because Sinatra was not a songwriter." [ CONTINUE ]
