Deadly Dragon Sound, Penthouse Records Special (via East Village Radio): Throwback scientists Deadly Dragon put down an excellent reggae set on EVR every Monday evening, but on the week of March 7th they went even deeper than usual, dedicating the entire show to releases on the legendary Penthouse label, including classic Buju, Beres, Tony Rebel and Wayne Wonder 45s, as well as early gems from riddimatical genius Dave Kelly. They even got Penthouse founder/producer Donavan Germain on the phone for an interview, bumping this one into collector’s item status. Get the backstory and tracklisting here and go to the March 7 archive at EVR for the audio. – Words by Eddie STATS Houghton
