Negril Weekend – Views from the Other Side

FOR MORE INFORMATION ON THE PLACES YOU’VE SEEN IN #DOWNDIROAD EPISODE 4, PLEASE CONTINUE READING THE BLOG POST BELOW. ADDITIONAL PICTURES & NEGRIL STORY INCLUDED.   If my memory serves me correctly, I’ve only ever stayed in Negril once in my life…and that was probably in 2001. I was an eighth grader; my class went on a trip where we stayed over at a small hotel owned by one of my classmate’s parents. I lost my favourite green shirt on Seven Mile Beach. I was so mad! Fast forward to 2017. I’m no longer a preteen, but I’m still pretty unfamiliar with the area. That changed this past weekend when…

Kingston Dub Club – “It Just Happened”

These days I’ve been spending a lot of time making excuses for why I didn’t invite people to places LOL. It’s hard work & it always leads back to the same point. “I didn’t plan it, it just happened.” It’s the truth! Imagine I am at work on God’s good Sunday afternoon & my friends just randomly decide to have a par. It just happened. Imagine we are at said par & another friend shows up towards the end & asks “Yow can we go to Dub Club?!” Of course I’m gonna say yes. It just happened.   Kingston Dub Club is a weekly Reggae session that is held at Skyline…

@FatalicSounds Road Trip Summer ’17!

If I had to summarize Fatalic’s Road Trip Summer ’17 CD I’d narrow it down to two words; FEEL GOOD! As a former DJ & music aficionado my friends don’t only hit me up when they want to find out where to take cool IG pics, but they hit me up for new music like ALL THE TIME. I can admit I don’t listen to mixtapes much these days, but I always get excited when Fatalic drops new projects because their work is quality. Road Trip Summer 2017 is no different. It’s the perfect mix of several genres, smooth flowing, and as usual it’s super creative. I’ve known the guys…

Reggae Sumfest 2017!

At the start of 2017 I said to myself, “Self! You’re gonna live your best life! You’re gonna do new things and you’re gonna be happy.” Well we’re halfway through the year & I’m not there yet but baby Jesus knows I’ve been doing quite a good job. The 2017 staging of Reggae Sumfest was scheduled to be held at it’s longstanding venue Catherine Hall Estate from July 16-22 with the tagline “Our Music Our Festival.” I’ve never been to Reggae Sumfest before. In fact, I have a love hate relationship with concerts. Concerts are tricky business. It’s almost like a full shift at work except I pay my money…
