With a refocused team, the sound’s mission is to “spread Jamaica’s Dancehall culture across the world and grow the awareness and appreciation of the sound clash culture in Africa and China. We took a short sabbatical to assess our role in this industry; we’re now re-energized and more ready than ever to take on the world as our musical oyster,” Courtney Singh exclaimed.
The sound boasts DJs Johnny, Junior Vibes, and Fiyah Wicked. After almost half a century in the music business, the sound continues to be engraved above the rest and promises to remain that way. “We stay true to our roots but continue to improve as the years come and go. For 2017, it’s all about reintegration for us,” Singh expounded in expressing his pride in the growth of his brainchild.

Singh expressed with delight “the sound has been to a vast number of places around the world, apart from North America, Canada, and England, some stand out stops have been Brazil, New Zealand, France, Italy, Germany Holland and Belgium. Playing in Jamaica has always been dear to us and it was even more phenomenal playing on the Independence of the Seas for the Welcome to Jamrock Reggae Cruise 2016. That is one for the books”.
