Toppa Top 10: Reggae/Dancehall’s Greatest Lady Deejays

Words by LargeUp Crew—lady-ann-sister-nancy-lady-p

The role of women in dancehall is extensive and varied. Most famously, there are the dancehall queens who have turned the seductive movements inspired by the music into a distinctive and worldwide artform of its own. Deejaying has always been a male-dominated sport but that’s not to say there haven’t been many worthy ladies in the ranks, too. We decided it was about time to spotlight women’s contributions to dancehall by highlighting all of the genre’s most crucial female voices, from relative newcomer Tifa to pioneers like Sister Nancy. Turns out we aren’t the only ones thinking this: this Saturday, May 24, Club Amazura in Queens, NYC is hosting a concert dubbed the Invasion of the Queens, featuring an all-female cast of dancehall greats, including a number of the lady deejays on this list.

Bounty Killer, Wayne Marshall and Federation Sound

Bounty Killer’s new one “No Long Talking” is one of our favorite tunes of the past month, and our pick for best Bounty song in at least a few years—it’s the Warlord back in top form. We can’t say for sure if it was recorded before or after his recent dust-up with Tommy Lee Sparta, but if that’s what it took to get him back on the level, than bring on the clash!

Not only is our Punany Monologues columnist Natalie Storm one of the shining lights for females in the dancehall, she’s a great writer, too. For this week’s Throwback Thursdays, we had Natalie go in on the little-known video for one of the great female deejay anthems of all-time, in Lady G’s “Nuff Respect.”
