Read the Jamaican Star´s article on protecting dance moves as intellectual property:

When THE STAR made checks, it was discovered that according to copyright laws, dancers can protect and gain money from creating dance moves.

Buy Cutacombo a.k.a. Katakombot a.k.a. Switzerland´s finest mash-up crew´s new mix “Oll Styles”

Gemixt wird immer noch vom Feinsten, aber mittlerweile sind wir bei Mash Ups ohne Genregrenzen angekommen. Hier trifft Michael Jackson auf den Wu Tang Clan, Dr. Alban auf M.I.A. und Method Man, Men At Work aud O.D.B. oder etwa Falco auf Snoop Dogg.

Hört sich vielleicht erstmal komisch an, läuft aber perfekt durch und wer die Idee hinter dem Mix versteht wird das Tape lieben.

Look forward to Beth Lesser´s photobook “The Rise of Jamaican Dancehall Culture” (Soul Jazz)

Lesser’s book is a vibrant anthology of all that mattered: the soundsystems, studios, producers, singers, DJs and, yes, the idlers.
