Words by Jesse Serwer—


As you may already know, our friends over at clothing brand/music blog Shimmy Shimmy have a smartly-designed periodical called No Ice Cream Sound extending their brand into print. For the fourth and latest edition of the zine, they decided to focus on New York City, with features on local reggae/dancehall notables Shaggy, Clive Chin, Rayvon and Dre Skull as well as clothing brand Rockers NYC, Deadly Dragon and filmmaker Stephanie Black. They also tapped yours truly for a guide to the Top 10 Caribbean eateries in NYC.

GIVEAWAY: Win Tix to See Scientist + Roots Radics In NY

Words by LargeUp Crew—

In what is sure to be the highlight of next week’s Dub Champions festival in NYC, Scientist and the Roots Radics Band are set to meet on stage Friday, Sept. 21, for what we think may just be the first-ever live performance of their crucial 1981 dub album, Scientist Rids the World of the Evil Curse of the Vampires, at BB King’s. In any case, it’ll certainly be the first time they’ve taken the stage with Johnny Osbourne, whose “He Can Surely Turn The Tide” was dubbed into Evil Curse‘s “Plague of Zombies.”

Cari-Pop Worldwide

Words by Eddie STATS Houghton


It’s true you reap what you sow; a few months back I gave homie and AfroPop Worldwide producer Wills Glasspiegel some game on dub pioneers who were still amongst the living, leads that became interviews for his brand new super-ape of a radio documentary for the Hip Deep segment of APW. When I went to check it I realized that in their mission to cover Afro-diasporic culture in all it’s multiform beauty, Hip Deep has actually been at least neckdeep in Caribbean culture. Check the trailer for Dub: the Medium is the Message below but then go to APW for the interviews with Lee Scratch, Clive Chin and Bullwackies, not to mention recent shows on Trinidad Carnival, Merengue and Afro-Dominican music, Chutney and the Indo-Caribbean diaspora, the zouk rhythm of the French Antilles, the secret history of Reggaeton and more…!
