According to Downsound Records’ new Twitter account, »Kingston Signals« returns.
Not as a weekly webcast program, but as a participant witness of Jamaican culture and music as it is today. (via Downsound Records)
Once again, label boss Josef Bogdanovich and photographer Peter Dean Rickards are joining forces.
The duo had pioneered webcasting a Jamaica-based web program live from the turntables of Jamaica’s most respected sound-systems to broadband back in 1999. The program hosted and profiled the greatest that Jamaican music had to offer. From the younger sounds like Coppershot spinning tracks for a pre-famous Sean Paul, to veterans like U-Roy and King Yellowman performing live on King Stur Gav.
Listen to the first ever Kingston Signals broadcast which happened at 80 Constant Spring Road in Kingston Jamaica on December 1999 below. It featured Exodus Nuclear as the lead sound with artists such as Spragga Benz and Delly Ranks making appearances.
