VP RECORDS 35th ANNIVERSARY POP-UP EXHIBIT TO DEBUT AT NYC’S ANNUAL GRACE JAMAICAN JERK FESTIVAL ON SUN. JULY 20
The Reggae Powerhouse Celebrates Their Story & History of Reggae Music with State-Of-The-Art Display Designed by Michael Thompson
From ska to rocksteady, roots reggae to dub, lover’s rock to dancehall - VP Records has been at the forefront of Jamaica’s musical evolution.  2014 marks the 35th anniversary when its founders Vincent and his wife Patricia Chin moved their headquarters from Kingston, Jamaica to Jamaica, New York transforming their operations into the largest reggae company worldwide. On Sunday July 20th, 2014, VP Records will celebrate their story and the history of reggae music with a special pop-up exhibit that will debut at the fourth annual Grace Jamaican Jerk Festival, held at Queens’ Roy Wilkins Park. For more information on the festival visitwww.jerkfestivalny.com.
The VP Records 35th Anniversary exhibit will feature a visually appealing storyboard installation designed by Michael Thompson. There will be a detailed map exploring the global impact of reggae music in every continent and an illustrative timeline covering each era - beginning in1958 (when the Chins established Randy’s Record Mart and Studio 17 in Kingston, Jamaica).
A short video documentary will air as part of the installation. The video’s narrator and Sirius XM reggae personality Pat McKay will walk the viewers through the social and political history of Jamaican music and explain how VP Records is a key contributor to its growth, development and future. In an excerpt from the video, McKay explains that “Vincent and Pat’s move to New York and the founding of VP Record’s Distribution formed an independent and vital channel from Jamaica to the world. The classic recordings of the period made an indelible mark and established reggae as a dominant form of the developing ‘world music’ genre.”
VP Records co-founder Patricia Chin along with her sons Christopher and Randy Chin, who run and operate the label today, will be on site at Grace Jamaican Jerk Festival and available for interviews. After the exhibit’s debut, the label plans to take this traveling installation into other markets throughout the rest of the year. More details to be announced at a later date.

Family of Legendary Reggae icon wants singer to stop claiming he is son of Bob Marley!
(PLEASE FOLLOW BOTH Tumblr’s  HERE & HERE)

A singer who goes by the name Fabian Marley may have to stop stating he is the son of the legendary Reggae singer Bob Marley until he can substantiate his claim.
According to a report by the Observer,  the singer Fabian Marley who goes by the moniker ‘Gong Kid’ gives his birth date as July 27, 1968.
He claims to be the result of a liaison between his mother Raphie Munroe and Bob Marley.
He says all his official documents, including his birth certificate, have the Marley surname.
According to the singer, six months after submitting his DNA results to the Marley family, he still hasn’t received a response.
He told the Jamaica Observer that he took the DNA test after receiving a “cease and desist” order from the family’s attorneys, Michael Hylton & Associates.
The document warned him to refrain from using the Marley name and claiming to be the son of reggae legend Bob Marley, unless he supplied concrete evidence.

Bob Marley and the Wailers Biopic in Development: “Buffalo Soldiers”
(PLEASE FOLLOW BOTH Tumblr’s  HERE & HERE)
The title and lyrics refer to the black U.S. cavalry regiments, known as “Buffalo Soldiers”, that fought in the American Indian Wars in the last 1800s/early 1900s. Marley’s song turned their fight for survival into a symbol of black resistance.
[…] No word on what the exact status of the project is, other than it’s been set up at Mandalay with the above names attached, meaning it may or may not happen. We’ll just have to wait and see. Certainly no news on casting at this stage of the process. Also no word on whether the Marley family is behind the project.
This news comes 2 years after Academy Award-winner Kevin Macdonald’s acclaimed long-in-development feature documentary Marley, was released as the definitive documentary on the life of Bob Marley, which was made with the unprecedented support of the Marley family, and featured rare footage, archival photos, and incredible performances and interviews with his family, friends, and band mates – the people who knew him best…..Full article HERE

Wayne ‘Sleng Teng’ Smith is dead

(PLEASE FOLLOW BOTH Tumblr’s  HERE & HERE)

Singer Wayne Smith, whose computerised song Under Mi Sleng Teng revolutionised reggae, has died. Smith’s son, Tidel Smith, told the Jamaica Observer that his father died yesterday at Kingston Public Hospital (KPH).

 He was 48 years old. He said Smith was admitted to KPH Friday after complaining of stomach pains. His health improved on Sunday but yesterday it deteriorated and he died shortly after noon.

 An autopsy will be done to determine the cause of death. Originally from Waterhouse, Smith started his career in 1980 with producer Lloyd ‘King Jammys’ James who produced Under Mi Sleng Teng four years later.

 Under Mi Sleng Teng was orchestrated by Smith and musician Noel Daley on an inexpensive Casio keyboard. It was first played at dances on James’ sound system and got such strong response that James released the song in late 1984.

 The ‘riddim’ of the same name produced numerous hit songs, including Pumpkin Belly by singer Tenor Saw.

 Under Mi Sleng Teng was a trailblazer, triggering dancehall’s digital age.

 It was Smith’s biggest hit, though he enjoyed more chart success with songs like Ain’t No Meaning In Saying Goodbye and Come Along.

 Smith, who operated the Sleng Teng label, is survived by his mother, May Coley, five children, three grandchildren, and five brothers and sisters.

·  Studio One is one of Jamaica’s most renowned record labels and recording studios, having been described as the Motown of Jamaica. The record label was involved with most of the major music movements in Jamaica during the 1960s and 1970s including ska, rocksteady, reggae and dancehall and has been described as the most important label in the history of reggae, the list of artistes who have recorded at Studio One is literally a who’s who of Jamaican music. Synonymous with Studio One is Clement ‘Sir Coxsone’ Dodd legendary producer and the founder of the label. Coxsone’s main competitor was Duke Reid, The Trojan. Duke Reid was a friend of Coxsone’s parents and the two’s friendly rivalry would continue up until the 1970’s with both men running their own labels as well as the sound system’s on which they both first made their names.

·  Treasure Isle owner and producer -  Arthur “Duke” Reid was born in Portland, Jamaica. After serving ten years as a Jamaican police officer, Reid left the force to help his wife Lucille run the family business, The Treasure Isle Grocery and Liquor Store .He dominated the Jamaican music scene of the 1960s, specialising in ska and rock-steady, though his love of American jazz, blues and soul was always in evidence. Reid had several things going for him that helped him to rise to prominence. He made a concerted effort to be in the studio as much as possible, something his counterparts did not do. He was known as a perfectionist and had a knack for adding symphonic sounds to his recordings and producing dense arrangements. Furthermore, his records were considerably longer than those being produced by his rivals. His tunes often broke the four-minute barrier, while most ska songs were barely longer than two minutes. The material that Treasure Island issued exemplified the cool and elegant feel of the rocksteady era.
