If you’ve been to a dancehall party in New York, or pretty much anywhere, in the past five years, you’ve seen the smooth moves of Ground Zero. The crew, started in Brooklyn by Syrin Zero, has turned into an international dance family represented in countries including France, Russia, Brazil and Jamaica. In addition to dance, the good folks of Zero Nation are DJs, clothing designers and photographers. They pledge loyalty to their crew and really know how to throw a party.

In the early 90s dancehall and hip-hop artists were collaborating on a regular basis. Lt Stitchie, Super Cat, Mad Cobra and Spragga Benz amongst others had major label record deals and tunes with major hip-hop acts at the time. I knew a lot of R&B (what Jamaican didn’t), a decent amount about hip-hop (thanks to selectors like Delano, Collin Hines and Alric & Boyd) but not a lot about house music, which was also starting to fuse with reggae and dancehall in various ways.
