Dub / Roots Music / Reggae
Black Redemption Sound
Dub Music is a present force on the international
underground scene. More than ever, night clubs,
discjockeys, music producers, and record labels alike,
take consideration of this wave. The truth is that drum and base,
jungle, trance, 2 step, and dubstep are derivatives of the original
dubwise style from Jamaica.
NYC's Black Redemption soundsystem (featuringRas Kush)
have been presenting Dub music in its original
soundsystem format. Special guests have included Jah
Shaka, Aston (family man) Barrett, Yami Bolo, Cedric
I'm Brooks,Disciples, Iration Steppas, and the best of
NYC's selectors, singers, musicians, & bands, affiliated
with DUB music. Specialized speakers, sound effects,
echo/delay units have been applied to allow a full dub
sounds experience. Setting a precedence, with ranges
from deepest vintage roots to latest warrior style
steppers, a mystery is brought to light satisfying the
object of many Dub fans & collectors inquiry.
In New york city, there is no alternative to a
Ras Kush & Black Redemption sound session.
Ras Kush is a true soundman in the original concept of
soundsystem operation and administration. His musical
works have filled a void in the vacuum of the reggae
music scene in America. His international upbringing,
and central love for music, influenced his sense for
musical developments, and traditional rhythmic
appreciation. Like most young people of his time,
growing up in the early 70s Caribbean, he was
influenced and inspired by the music of Bob Marley,
and his regular stays in America exposed him to the
then developing hip hop music.
His love for music has led him to always be involved
in one musical form or another and eventually dj-ing.
Playing music, he found a specific fulfillment and
satisfaction bringing everyone together in
enjoyment.His long-lasting connection with music is a
driving force for His accomplishments.
In his involvement with reggae music, Ras Kush has had
a special connection with certain fundamental members
such as Roland Alphonso and Lloyd Bullwackie Barnes.
With Lloyd Bullwackie Barnes, Ras Kush has worked as
artist and distributor, and toured Japan numerous
times representing Bullwackies productions. Being the
first reggae producer in America, and having the very
first concept of a reggae soundsystem in New York,
Bullwackies has been a mentor for Ras Kush.
The soundsystem profession, which Ras Kush practices,
has been the path of evolvement for most major
producers out of Jamaica. This also propelled Ras Kush
as a producer. His own Black Redemption label has
released consistently well- received productions, with
sought-after titles and requests for continuous
pressings. He is also involved in a re-issuing label,
Forward Roots, that has produced lost treasures and
unfamiliar gems from the 70s and 80s.
Ras kush has recorded legendaries as: Ashanty Roy from
the Lee Perry group, CONGOS; Glen Brown, Johny
Osbourne, White Mice and Ranking Joe to name a few. He
has also performed throughout America, Canada, Europe
and Japan. With a growing fan base all over the world,
it is important to take note and keep up with the
latest on Ras Kush. Music is a mission- it is an
outreach program for Ras Kush and the Black
Redemption: Sounds of Praises-to bring the meditation
of dancing and upliftment to one and all.
