"The Sound Of Now"

Playing at the moment over on the Showcasefm station are MUPHSTEPPA. They also happen to have a tune on the flash player at the moment 'Life'. This a fine tune about social issues and injustices, with a nice ska vibe. If you visit their Myspace page you can find a few more tunes to listen to and download which have quite a different feel. Check out 'River of Tears' my personal fave with it's well laid back almost spiritual vibe.
MUPHSTEPPA is the musical collaboration between MUPH, a dub producer from Belgium, and our good friend at Springline STEVE STEPPA, the Los Angeles based vocalist. The combination creates a very moody style of reggae and dub while staying true to the fundamental roots of the genre. Here are Muph's words on how he and Steve got together and how Belgium and L.A have managed to create this solid set of tunes.

"Steve and I met virtually on the old site. I was looking for vocalists who wanted to collaborate on some tunes. After the first or second tune we both noticed that his vocals and lyrics matched great with my instrumental escapades. So we decided to create a complete independent project ''MUPHSTEPPA". The way we do it is very simple. I create an instrumental riddim, send it to Steve, when he's ready he sends back his vocal track. I then mix and master it together to create the finished article. We've never met in real life, for the distance between Europe and USA is too big to swim, and too expensive for musicians to travel! It will happen one day... I hope,perhaps, even find a backing band to perform!!! More dreams then...... you never know what the future holds!"

Forward March MUPHSTEPPA!

Dennis Brown "The Crown Prince"

The third and final 'spotlight' session airing over on Springline Jamaica Radio (SJR) at the moment is on Dennis Brown, yet another another reggae artist who tragically left this world before his time. Tunes featured in this session chosen by the 'Top Girl' Moni include:

Cassandra, Groovin' Out on Life, Girl You Are my Inspiration and the mighty
Money in my Pocket.

Dennis Brown was born in Kingston on February 1st 1957 and is often referred to as “Emmanuel, the Crown Prince of Reggae”, and is indeed cited as being Bob Marley’s favourite singer.
He started out from a young age and packed as much music into his life as he could. In the mid-’60s, he played West Kingston charity balls and banged on beer boxes with Byron Lee’s Dragonaires until the band’s leader made him a full-fledged member. He was but only nine at the time.When still at the tender age of 11, his association with Lee brought him to the attention of the Falcons, who hired him as vocalist. A fortuitous gig at the Tit-for-Tat club caused Studio One impresario Coxsone Dodd to take notice of this confident, silky-voiced kid. Dodd offered to produce him, delivering the Van Dykes’ soul hit “No Man Is An Island” and the subsequent album of the same name.During the 1970s reggae in Jamaica meant voicing social and political injustices, and as Rastafarianism and dub were transforming what had been a music heavily informed by U.S. soul into a cultural force, Brown was in the right place at the right time. During the early part of the 70s he freelanced between studios recording for the likes of Lloyd Dalley, Impact, Aquarius, Joe Gibbs and the legendary Niney the Observer who produced Brown’s 1973 “Westbound Train,” which borrowed from Al Green.
After this Brown’s lyrics became increasingly message-oriented and Niney’s productions were stark, giving extra heft to such tunes as “Africa” and “Tribulation.”
These ‘message’ songs coupled with soul wailing love songs meant that his stage shows were becoming ever more popular as they packed a real punch.
Despite these deep excursions with Niney, the natty dreads and the politics, Brown always considered himself a mainstream artist, and after his massive 1979 hit for producer Joe Gibbs, “Money In My Pocket,” he eventually signed to major label A&M the following year, with an eye to cornering the cross over market after the untimely death of Marley. This joining proved to be unsuccessful. At the same time however he became a co-owner of the DEB record label where he had success as a producer with Junior Delgado and female lovers rock trio 15-16-17.He also moved to London at this time and continued to record and produce. His 1982 album, Love Has Found Its Way, with production assistance from Gibbs, brought him pop success on a level seldom achieved in all of reggae as the title track climbed the U.S. R&B charts. This LP also sadly despite its success marked the end of Gibbs’ prominence as a producer, and his connection with Gibbs terminated. Brown still carried on producing hits with “To The Foundation” with Gussie Clarke and “Revolution” for Taxi records. He also cut tunes for his Yvonne’s Special label (named after his wife) which helped him to come through the early dancehall boom unscathed. Brown though was soon to lose his way with the birth of ‘digital’ music in around 1985 and appeared to be unsure of which way to go next. He eventually settled in to this new form of music and recorded ‘Exit’ for King Jammy in digital stylee before moving in to old friend Gussie Clarkes Music Works Studio. This move gave him more esteem with the younger market and a duet with Gregory Isaacs “Big All Around” was well received. This helped propel Brown to be back in demand in Jamaica he began recording anywhere and everywhere for a few months.
Unfortunately, with stardom came a cocaine problem, something he denied repeatedly to the press. After touring in Brazil in 1999, he complained of chills and fatigue on the plane ride home and within days he was dead. AIDS, pneumonia and all the problems with addiction have all been cited as possibilities; no one is certain, as there was no autopsy. Almost as much of a mystery is his recorded output, which is overwhelming in terms of sheer amount. One hundred albums is a safe estimate, which for a performer who only lived 42 years is some output by any standards.

I-ROY "The Mighty Poet"

I-Roy was one of a quartet of DJs that reigned over the Jamaican music scene during the early to mid-'70s. Along with U-Roy, Dennis Alcapone, and Big Youth. I-Roy was the most eloquent, and his toasts were littered with references to pop culture, movies and historical figures. He cut many singles, and dozens of albums, but his prominence began to wane by the end of the decade, although he continued recording in to the 1990s.
He was born as Roy Reid on June 28, 1949, in St. Thomas, Jamaica. He had no musical aspirations in his early life and after graduating from Dinthill Technical College, he embarked on a civil service career, working as an accountant for the government. Though once the island's music scene began to grow in the '60s, he became more impassioned by music and especially Sound systems. In 1968, Reid decided to launch his own, ‘Soul Bunny’. To start with he took advantage of the weekly early closing (a former British practise, were shops closed for businesses one afternoon a week). With this in mind he decided to set up his system on Wednesday afternoons down by Victoria Pier. He soon made an impact, and was offered a spot at Son's Junior system in Spanish Town. It was here that he met producer Harry Mudie, who took the Roy Reid into the studio where he became I-Roy. He recorded four songs, two with Dennis Walks, "The Drifter" and "Heart Don't Leap", and one with the Ebony Sisters, “Let Me Tell You Boy". His fourth cut was called "Musical Pleasure," this became his solo debut. All the songs were hits, and I-Roy quickly became in demand at sound systems. He DJ’d for virtually all the outfits operating around Spanish Town, Stereo, Ruddy's Supreme, and V-Rocket.
Although I-Roy played for many of the systems he remained loyal to Mudie until 1971. I-Roy had now developed a rabid following in Britain, and as so often is the case they fell out over money, namely financial arrangements for a forthcoming European tour. With their partnership now over this freed I-Roy to record with virtually every major producer on the island. He cut "Hot Bomb" for Lloyd Campbell, "Mood for Love" with Winston Blake, and "Problems of Life" and "Musical Drum Sound" for Lloyd Daley. These singles were all big hits, and subsequently I-Roy was offered a slot at King Tubby's legendary Hi-Fi sound system. 1973 was a signature year, the hits came down like rain. Producer Bunny Lee oversaw three, the fabulous "Rose of Sharon," "Make Love," and "Who Cares." Derrick Harriott produced "Melinda," Jimmy Radway cut "Sound Education," and Keith Hudson produced "Silver Platter." Lee Perry took the DJ into the studio for "High Fashion" and "Space Flight," Ruddy Redwood was responsible for "Sidewalk Killer," Pete Weston oversaw the entertaining "Buck and the Preacher," Glen Brown was behind a trio of cuts including "Festive Season," while Byron Lee oversaw a tribute to the ever popular sci-fi show Dr. Who. There were others with Clive Chin, Rupie Edwards; the list just goes on and on. However, these many mighty cuts pale compared to I-Roy's work with producer Gussie Clarke. The pair began their partnership with "Magnificent Seven," and followed it up with the equally impressive "High Jacking." This was followed by a flood of hits, and by the time the two men had completed work on I-Roy's debut album, ‘Presenting’, the record was almost a ‘Best of Collection’. The majority of the album is made up from Clarke cuts, with several from Pete Weston included. The biggest track for me from this album is "Blackman Time," which utilized the "Slaving" rhythm, while everything else on the LP is nearly as strong. A second self-produced album followed soon, ‘Hell & Sorrow’, and is a worthy successor to his debut. Again this is hits heavy, with "Buck and the Preacher" and "Monkey Fashion" amongst the top tunes included, and it proved to be as big a success as its predecessor.
Britain was now paying serious attention and Hell & Sorrow, which had been released there via the Trojan label, and had received nothing but acclaim. In response, I-Roy was off to the U.K., arriving in time to promote his next release, the excellent The ‘Many Moods Of’. I-Roy stayed in Britain for eight months and arrived home to discover that DJing had been declared dead. He was having none of that and a battle brewed. With the rise of the DJs, Jamaican artists had taken a serious hit. The new genre was built around recycled rhythms initially using popular oldies from the rocksteady era. Producers still need a rhythm section to re-record the songs to give them a more up to date feel. As time went on more musicians were added to the brew, but this meant singers were now virtually redundant. In response, the Jamaican Federation of Musicians, under their president, veteran jazzman Sonny Bradshaw, had fought long and hard to resurrect what they deemed as "real" music. This was the beginning of the shadowy conspiracy of veteran singers who now began unleashing a flood of vocal cuts onto the market. However, Jamaican fads are notorious for their short lives, and it's more likely that it was down to a normal change of taste, that saw the initial age of DJs fade away. I-Roy however hadn't admitted defeat yet, he was merely biding his time. In the interim, he took employment at Joe Gibbs and JoJo Hookim's brand new Channel One studio. Although he never held the title, and rarely received the credit, the former DJ became the studio's house producer, and was behind several of the studio's innovations.
In February 1975, I-Roy started to re-launch his career. It began with "Black Bullet," on which he dueted with Jackie Brown. JoJo Hookim then oversaw a stream of I-Roy hits, "I Man Time," "Forward Yah!," "Roots Man," and the saucy "Welding" amongst them. With Phil Pratt, the DJ cut "Ital Dish" and "Musical Air Raid," while Pete Weston was at the controls for "Natty Down Deh." The latter single was aimed directly at I-Roy's number one enemy, Sonny Bradshaw (who's referred to as "Lockjaw" on the record), and the DJ couldn't help but gloat at the singles chart successes. By the end of the year, I-Roy had scored hit after hit with songs including "Fire Stick," "Dread in the West," "Padlock," "Teapot," and a pair of songs taking exception to fellow DJ Prince Jazzbo, one of a number of young toasters determined to take I-Roy’s crown. Dissing the competition on record has always been the fashion in Jamaican history, dating back to the early '60s with Prince Buster's feud with singer Derrick Morgan and producer Leslie Kong. That one was personal, but I-Roy's and Prince Jazzbo's musical battle was not, Though that didn't stop the two from taking even more personal, and more hilarious, potshots at each other. I-Roy’s opening shot was "Straight to Jazzbo's Head," which prompted Jazzbo to retort with "Straight to I-Roy's Head." Soon after, the younger DJ had an incident with a bus, luckily with no serious harm; the elder DJ then used this incident for "Jazzbo Have Fe Run." As he had not suffered any misfortunes of his own. Jazzbo then fired back questioning I-Roy’s manhood with “Gal Boy I-Roy”. That received a swift return with "Padlock," a song where the DJ attempts to arouse the sleeping "Princess Jazzbo." And the sparring continued, much to audiences' delight, with other DJs jumping on the bandwagon to take their own potshots at the mighty I-Roy. Thankfully this feud never resulted in clashes between supporters, and the two DJs remained friendly behind the scenes. Before this clash finally ended an album was released ‘Step Forward Youth’, which put the pair's barrages onto one disc. (In 1990, the Ujama label rereleased them as Head to Head Clash).
In 1975 I-Roy's released his fourth album, Truth & Rights, which was produced by Pete Weston. Again the album was filled with recent hits, alongside some strong new material. In 1976, I-Roy signed with new Virgin subsidiary Front Line, and over the next three years he released a staggering nine albums! In 1976 alone I-Roy released four albums. The best one being ‘Can't Conquer Rasta’, a dub-filled joy overseen by Bunny Lee. With whom I-Roy had worked with the year before on "Straight to Jazzbo's Head”. His debut for Front Line was titled ‘Musical Shark Attack’, and was immediately followed by ‘Crisis Time’. Both records were slightly not as ferocious as past efforts, probably keeping in mind the sensibilities of his overseas audiences, but both feature heavy roots and flowing toasts over a host of classic cuts. The Klik label also released Dread Bald Head. The following year, I-Roy joined forces with Niney Holness for a host of cuts, including "Zion Trip," "Point Blank," "Jah Come Here," and "Point Blank." He also went into the studio with Alvin Ranglin, to make ‘The Best of I-Roy’ album. Which is not quite as the title suggests a hits collection, but was in fact a record of new material, all recorded with the superb Revolutionaries. The Rhythms are taken from Studio One classics, with the Heptones and Alton Ellis particularly favoured, and is a laid back, rootsy, atmospheric record, and is considered by many as one of the DJ's best. ‘Ten Commandments’ was also released this year. A concept album. Musically the record is based on Bob Marley's Exodus, with each of the biblical commandments providing the theme for a single track.
After that, Heart of a Lion paled somewhat, although Harry Johnson does nice work here. The Godfather paired I-Roy back with Bunny Lee and Roderick "Blackbeard" Sinclair, with the law (as compared to the commandments) and gangsters being the chattering themes of choice. The General sadly was of less note than its dub companion, Spider's Web. All of these albums arrived in 1977. Perhaps this heavy output of records helped to suppress the DJ’s singles' sales, and he was now no longer a regular in the chart. But the albums kept coming, and 1978 brought ‘World on Fire’, with Sly & Robbie again supplying the rhythms. The late great Joe Gibbs oversaw ‘African Herbsman’, and the DJ rejoined Harry J. for 1979's ‘Hotter Yatta’. That same year's ‘Cancer’ a reference to I-Roy's zodiac sign, not the disease, while the song topics return to movie stars and musical heroes. 1980's ‘Whap'n Bap'n’ was released under the DJ's real name, and paired him with the U.K. maverick producer Dennis Bovell, for a surprisingly subdued record.
I-Roy followed this the following year with another mediocre effort ‘Doctor Fish’, while 1983's ‘Outer Limits’ found the DJ trying rap. Unfortunately there were few highlights, and it was becoming apparent that the DJ was beginning to lose his shine. Further albums just confirmed this fear and sessions with Blackbeard in 1984 were so disappointing that the DJ's output now slowed to a trickle. Occasional records did appear, 1987 brought “We Chat You Rock”, on which the DJ paired with Jah Woosh, 1990 saw the arrival of ‘The Lyrics Man’, but none revived I-Roy's fortunes. By the '90s, the DJ was suffering from a variety of health problems and his financial situation was so precarious that for stretches of time he found himself homeless.
By the end of his life, I-Roy had become financially reliant on his mentally retarded son. A second son was in prison and was killed there in October 1999. This tragedy was perhaps the final blow for the weakened legend, and on November 27, 1999, the DJ died in a Spanish Town hospital from heart problems.

"Forces of Viktry"

Over on Sprinline radio at the moment is a show spotlighting Linton Kwesi Johnson's fine career. So here taken from is a short history of the man himself to accompany the show.

Linton Kwesi Johnson was born on 24 August 1952 in Chapelton, a small town in the rural parish of Clarendon, Jamaica. He came to London in 1963, went to Tulse Hill secondary school and later studied Sociology at Goldsmiths' College, University of London. Whilst still at school he joined the Black Panthers, helped to organise a poetry workshop within the movement and developed his work with Rasta Love, a group of poets and drummers. In 1977 he was awarded a C Day Lewis Fellowship, becoming the writer-in-residence for the London Borough of Lambeth for that year. He went on to work as the Library Resources and Education Officer at the Keskidee Centre, the first home of Black theatre and art. Johnson's poems first appeared in the journal Race Today. In 1974 Race Today published his first collection of poetry, Voices of the Living and the Dead. Dread Beat An' Blood, his second collection, was published in 1975 by Bogle-L'Ouverture and was also the title of his first LP, released by Virgin in 1978. That year also saw the release of the film Dread Beat An' Blood, a documentary on Johnson's work. In 1980 Race Today published his third book, Inglan Is A Bitch and there were four more albums on the Island label: Forces of Victory (1979), Bass Culture (1980), LKJ in Dub (1981) and Making History LKJ, Johnson's own record label, was launched in 1981 with two singles by the Jamaican poet Michael Smith, Mi Cyaan Believe It and Roots. During the 1980s he became immersed in journalism, working closely with the Brixton-based Race Today collective. His 10-part radio series on Jamaican popular music, From Mento to Lovers Rock, went out on BBC Radio 1 in 1982 and was repeated in 1983. From 1985-88 he was a reporter on Channel 4's The Bandung File. He also toured regularly with the Dennis Bovell Dub Band and produced albums by the writer Jean Binta Breeze and by jazz trumpeter Shake Keane.
Recorded at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London, the album LKJ Live in Concert with the Dub Band was released independently in 1985 and was nominated for a Grammy Award soon after. This was followed by Tings An' Times in 1991, also the title of his Selected Poems co-published by Bloodaxe Books and LKJ Music Publishers the same year. In 1992 Linton Kwesi Johnson and Dennis Bovell collaborated to produce LKJ in Dub: Volume Two. In 1996 the album LKJ Presents was released, a compilation of various artists including Linton Kwesi Johnson. This was followed in the same year by LKJ A Cappella Live, a collection of 14 poems including some unpublished works. In 1998 Johnson released More Time to celebrate his twentieth anniversary in the recording business. Island also released a two-CD compilation set entitled Independant Intavenshan. In 2002 Linton Kwesi Johnson became only the second living poet and the first black poet to have his work published in Penguin's Modern Classics series, under the title Mi Revalueshanary Fren. The BBC made a TV programme about LKJ's poetry, shown in their Profile series on BBC 4. In this year Johnson also released the CD LKJ in Dub Volume Three. To mark his 25th anniversary as a reggae recording artist, Linton Kwesi Johnson released a CD and, for the first time ever, a DVD in 2004 entitled LKJ Live in Paris with the Dennis Bovell Dub Band. Linton Kwesi Johnson has been made an Associate Fellow of Warwick University (1985), an Honorary Fellow of Wolverhampton Polytechnic (1987) and received an award at the XIII Premo Internazionale Ultimo Novecento from the city of Pisa for his contribution to poetry and popular music (1990). In 1998 he was awarded the Premio Piero Ciampi Citta di Livorno Concorso Musicale Nazionale in Italy. In 2003 Johnson was bestowed with an honorary fellowship from his alma mater, Goldsmiths College. In 2004 he became an Honorary Visiting Professor of Middlesex University in London. In 2005 Linton Kwesi Johnson was awarded a silver Musgrave medal from the Institute of Jamaica for distinguished eminence in the field of poetry. He has toured the world from Japan to the new South Africa, from Europe to Brazil. His recordings are amongst the top-selling reggae albums in the world and his work has been translated into Italian and German. Unsurprisingly, he is known and revered as the world's first reggae poet.
