Gladdy Says

by Gladdy
24 June 2006

Some call me a Sound-man. What does that mean? There is so much fun in being involved in music in the way that I am, one would not think of it as a career. Well it isn’t really; it started as an interest, a hobby, a love and turned into a career. Music to me is many things; recreation, meditation; fun and serious at the same time.

OK, so much for complications, music is simply an element of the sound track to my life; an element because there are other sounds in the sound track to my life, some or most of which I have no control over and I don’t particularly want to have control over them, but with music I am constantly adjusting what I listen to because I am of a feeling that the music one listens to can have an effect on the way one behaves. Well, this is obvious I here you say, but how many people know or are conscious of the possible consequences on their mind of what they perceive with their ears?

What we do is unique, bringing the musical inspiration of a nation - Jamaica -to bear on your ears. To my knowledge there is no other soundsytem operating today that presents the diversity of Jamaican musical styles that we play. Even BIG NAME sounds do not present the Jamaican soundsystem in its truest sense. Perhaps they can't, because if they could, why would they not present in this way. In fact, I observe some serious under-educating going on (it doesn’t matter any way - not every sound man have a desire or a will to educate). Every year we have a great opportunity and the honour to play at Nottinghill Carnival, when people come form all over the Globe to sample the delights of our presentation.

Ska forms a foundation a bedrock on which all other Reggae is built. Don Drummond's great horn will shake you to the foundation make you sit up and listen, whilst Lloyd Brevet’s moving bass lines just challenging you not to dance – to twist up your waits. It’s irresistible; for me, for you, young or old, all moving in one great crowd in front of my eyes inspiring me to drop one great record after another.
