Kwayze Judah

Hearing Kwayze perform live at a music conference held at Black Orchid Resort in (Burrel Boom) Belize in early 2015 was certainly a treat to my ears. Sitting with the likes of Legendary Lloyd Stanbury , jamaican lawyer and international music business consultant and world renowned rapper shyne , everyone in the house had to pay attention immediately. His sound took me back to watching a sunsplash event with the Sagittarius Band. His flow with the blue hole band was exceptional, My words exactly were , ” this rasta ya bad , know how fi ride a riddim.” As shyne pointed out “now him I would spend money on.” Everyone in the audience was captivated with his word and sound power. The voice, that vintage sound, the vintage flow , one can only say he belongs on a world stage with major acts performing. Watching him ride every riddim the band threw at him then going into a freestyle with wife chef india it was like a luciano fused with capleton meeting lauren hill as india blazed with an east coast fugee /spoken word flow and him  blending smooth hartical vibes .

Global Spin 2015 Awards

Dependent on what part of the world you’re from, some would say they would tie it to that moment hearing the fusion of one song into another or beat overlays with beats and rhymes in the beginning of that hip hop era. Others would say it was watching the dj’s in the dancehall playing beats on 45’s and LP versions or playing what are considered as dubplates or specials calling out another sound systems . It’s hard to actually say that defining moment of the first pioneer to do certain things using turntables and needles but there certainly was that foundation being set and veterans being created. The exclusiveness of Dj’ing back then where only a selective few who had “tools” which made it not only a defining moment but as for the momentum that was garnered for this new art form certainly set the stage for what can be called exponential growth. In technology we went from cassettes to cd’s to everything being changed from analog to digital. All of this being translated into massive forms of financial gain in all sectors. In the dancehall and hip hop scene artists were paid to cut specials added to just being paid for performances or sales of records as US artists or other genres who were making their own royalties from producing songs alone.The Dj’s being the holders of the keys to success were the ones that created the buzz for these same artists to be considered as hot or not.
