Brand New Podcast: Deadly Dragon Sound Rude Boy Ska Mix For Oi Polloi!

A few months back we concocted this killer mix of RUDE BWOY SKA for the great shop and website called OI POLLOI -- WWW.OIPOLLOI.COM -- out of Manchester, ENGLAND. When Oi Polloi asked us if we would do a CD for them, we were thrilled as it is a shop with a true sense of identity and aesthetics that we felt meshed well with us here at Deadly Dragon Sound. For this CD we reached way deep into the vaults for vocal and instrumental Jamaican R&B, Ska and early Rocksteady that spoke of the rudebwoy culture that was developing in Kingston in the mid to late 60s. As always Deadly Dragon plays chune the way chune supposed to be played -- Pure vinyl thing...no serato...no CDs...no Computer Edits -- 2 turntables, mixer and effects - BIG PEOPLE STYLE!

One of the biggest tunes from the past year is finally out on 7" vinyl. This is by far the finest tune from the Cure since his release.

This is the one day that all of the independently owned record stores come together with artists to celebrate the art of music. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day and hundreds of artists in the United States and in various countries across the globe make special appearances and performances. Festivities include performances, cook-outs, body painting, meet & greets with artists, parades, djs spinning records and on and on. Metallica officially kicked off Record Store Day at Rasputin Music in San Franscisco on April 19, 2008 and Record Store Day is now celebrated the third Saturday every April.
