A stalwart of Jamaica’s music industry, Alton Ellis is dead. Mr. Ellis, who was one of the key contributors to the development of the ska and rock steady era, died Friday night in a London Hospital. Mr. Ellis who was 64 had been battling cancer for several months. Alton Ellis is generally revered as one of the greatest and most soulful singers Jamaica has ever produced. The singer was born in Kingston in 1944, and grew up in the Trench Town area as part of a musically inclined family.

In his early teens, Ellis was one half of the duo “Alton & Eddie” with fellow singer Eddie Perkins. In 1958, after winning a prominent talent show, they recorded the single “Muriel,” for Coxsone Dodd at Studio One, which became a substantial hit. Not long after cutting the follow-up “My Heaven,” Perkins left for the United States, leaving Ellis to establish himself as a solo act in Jamaica. In 1962, Duke Reid took Ellis to his Treasure Isle label where he mined several of his best known hits recording with a backing trio, The Flames which included his brother Leslie Ellis. [...]

The new hit-making force in Jamaican music doesn’t live in the steamy downtown ghettos Bob Marley made famous but on a leafy residential road high on a hill here, in the upscale neighborhood Havendale, St. Andrews. Just 18, Stephen McGregor, also known as Di Genius, is a member of one of reggae’s reigning families: the clan of the veteran singer Freddie McGregor.


Stephen McGregor in the Studio

Big iron gates slowly swing open to reveal a yard with a raised, shaded area designed for playing dominoes. Inside a large villa narrow wooden stairs behind the living room lead up to Big Ship Studio, named after Freddie’s 1981 worldwide hit. With its richly colored walls hung with framed awards and its big black leather couch, Big Ship feels like a cozy clubhouse outfitted with huge speakers and a mixing desk. Here Stephen, who is known as the studio’s Captain, swivels around in an office chair, punctuating a chat by flicking a fader and unleashing yet another monster hit like Sean Paul’s “Watch Dem Roll” and “Always on My Mind,” his collaboration with Da’Ville.

Askmen.com recently had an interview with world famous Dancehall artist and Jamaican Sean Paul entitled 13 Questions With Sean Paul.

Askmen.com: On behalf of AskMen.com, I want to congratulate you on all your success so far, especially for The Trinity topping the reggae charts. So tell me about the album…

Sean Paul: My latest album is called The Trinity, and it is an album [that was] three years in the making… it’s also my third album. It represents the young entertainers and producers of Jamaica. So, that’s the reason I called it The Trinity. Everybody who appears on the album is an entertainer or an artist who’s been in the game for over five years, so I feel confident in their work… I was living [in Jamaica], I was looking at the tasks I had to accomplish to produce a new album, and wanted to give people back the same energy and synergy… I wanted to know, “what’s up,” and when I looked around, I saw the young kids from Jamaica. They reminded me of myself 10 years ago. So I’m working with them right now on this album.

Yeah!! Christ feed the multitude wid only one loaf a bread

Christ feed the multitude wid only one loaf a bread!
Poor people there is something for you dont let the pressures of the system
Get upon ya head, Poor people there is something for you

Mankind cares not for his sisters anymore, still there is something for you

Rasta works a manifest an it a blossom an a bloom,
Nature always run it course the tide is rising wit the moon,
It only take a spark to put a fyah to da fume,
What is hidden in the dark shall be revealed so very soon,
Tell Pharoah free the prisoners from the dungeon an the doom,
Tell di youths fi natty-dread an babylon put dem inna platoon,
Di trials an di perils deepa dan di blue lagoon,
Dem nuh wan fi nuh dem history yuh nuh see say dem a goon [...]
