FEATURE: Reminiscing - Reggae Was Hot in the 70's!

Posted on September 1, 2014 at 12:36pm 2 Comments

One of the first dub records I ever heard was “Flour Power.” A madman rant by Naggo Morris over a lazy mule trot of a groove, it was a 45 airmailed to me from Antigua by a friend I had made while visiting relatives there in 1975. I was 15. The number one black radio station in New York was WBLS.

I've always been fascinated by the "almost-weres" in music. I've probably wasted entire days of my life imagining what Nirvana would have sounded like if Dinosaur Jr. frontman J. Mascis had accepted their offer to play drums instead of Dave Grohl, or what the 90's underground would have sounded like if Guy Picciotto and Brendan Canty hadn't quit their noise-post-punk-hip-hop collective Happy Go Licky to join Fugazi. But there are few bands that inspire more…

Hey Soundcheck,

I just released my EP titled "Salutation" on Bandcamp! CDs are available as well! http://kaylastarr.bandcamp.com! Would love your support please share to our community. It's a mixture of alternative rock, trip-hop, & r&b! I'm a LA native singer with a live band!

Born in New York and raised in South Florida, No Emotion Gold Mask is redefining what it means to be a modern hip-hop artist while paying homage to old-school greats like Wu Tang. With an authentic flow full of instant classic punch lines, this comedian and rap artist is making his own lane. Refusing to be play the role of the stereotypical rapper, NoEmotion GoldMask has opened the minds of fans everywhere with his thought-provoking and often hilarious one-liners. As a self-made underground favorite, NoEmotion GoldMask has an international cult following with fans of all ages from all over the world, including the NoEmotion Skate Crew and Broken Emotion, a dance crew. NoEmotion GoldMask quickly rose through the ranks of Miami's underground rap scene to be one of the most recognizable entertainers out, proving that unsigned hype still exists. Never caught without his signature gold mask, which die-hard fans can purchase signed from his online store, NoEmotion GoldMask is one of the most eclectic, provocative, and thought-provoking entertainers to come on the American rap scene - and he's just getting started. Follow him on Twitter @noemotion954. Watch his videos at http://www.youtube.com/user/NoEmotion954. Like NoEmotion's Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/NoEmotionGoldMask.
