MANABU INOUE from DAYJAM
1993年より東京の夜の街を疾走し続けてきたDAYJAM. DJ集団として、またはクラブカルチャーのパイオニアとして、はたまたインターネットメディアぽかったりしながら独自の世界を築き、思いつくがまま活動を続けるクルーです。
”混ぜ合わせる”ということは、時に音楽に限らず様々な形でグルーヴ感を生み出すきっかけとなります。 融合、そして新たな昇華を繰り返しながらまったく新しいモノになったり意図しない結果を生んだり。MIX&SAMPLINGという手法がHIPHOPのみならず”オモロイモノ”に寄与する効果は計り知れない。その事を具体的に提唱していく現場が、DAYJAMの発信したい事のひとつです。 それはコラージュでありオマージュでありパロディでもありシニカルな何かなのかも知れません。DAYJAMでは、現状のカテゴライズにはこだわらず貪欲にミキシングソースを求め、混ぜたり捏ねたり揉んだり溶かしたり切ったり貼ったりしながら輪郭を形成していきたいと考えています。

DJ MARIMO
HEMO+MOOFIRE率いるWOMAN WI NAMEにてダンスホールレゲエ・セレクタとして活動開始。自らの旅行好きが高じて、最近は中南米やら中近東やらの現地の音々を織り交ぜながらプレイ。自身がオーガナイズする”SUPER DRY!”ほか、都内やら横浜やらで精力的に活動中。2012年、待望のMIX CD ”Thank you! tropical”をリリース。フロアがハネるユレるオドる、カワイくてはげしいプレイに注目!

NORI & MITSU
スティールパン奏者NORI(鉄鍋)とMITSUのユニット。I LOVE TRINI久しぶりの出演です!

Romie
高知県出身のシンガー。2006年、DOMINO-KAT(ドミノキャット)とのコンビネーション「DAY BY DAY」で衝撃デビュー。レゲエ・ソカ・ISLAND POP等のRiddimを自在に操る歌心とメロディーセンスは一度でも聞いたものの耳を捉える。黒人の少年のようなハイトーンボイスも武器に、東京・高知の他、 日本全国のクラブやイベントに出演、レゲエサウンドのMIX CD参加等、増々活動の場を広げている。

TOROCHACHA
2006年 2月、初めてTRINIDAD&TOBAGOへ行き、本場のTRINIDADのCarnivalに出場、
SOCAを体感する。 以後毎年トリニダードへ足を運び、数々の現地のアーティストのバックダンサー、現地のパーティーのショーに出演し、MVなどにも出演。現在CARNIVAL FLAVORの一員としても精力的に活動中!

宜しく御願いします!!!!!!

@L3Magazine – April 2013

April marks the arrival of Spring, and just as there’s a season change, there’s a change with Snoop Dogg who now goes by the name of Snoop Lion.

Interviewed by L3’s Natasha Von Castle, Snoop Lion speaks candidly about his conversion to Rastafarianism and how that conversion is now influencing his music. In addition to the question of what it’s like for an American to perform with the Patois dialect, Natasha also asks Snoop if there’s an ulterior motive with Mind Gardens. His answer might surprise readers.

As an artist representing the West Coast of the United States, Tricia ‘ZJ Sparks’ Spence sits down with Jah Sun in Jamaica to talk about his career, and the success he’s had as a Reggae artist, especially in the realm of publishing. Similar to Snoop Lion, Jah Sun speaks on the incredible influence of Bob Marley on him as a person, and the music he creates.

Honoring one of Jamaica’s Dancehall legends, Pia Jordine speaks to Burro Banton on his long standing career, as well as the countless artists he’s influenced and who have patterned his style of lyrical delivery. Dancehall aficionados will want to hear the latest from the living legend.

Rounding out our interviews, Heike Dempster speaks to Bahamas’ own Ricardo Clarke who shares what it is to be in the business of musical ministry. The artist also shares the impact of his catch phrase ‘Don’t Count Me Out.’

Product reviews include Tre Semme’s Keratin line which according to Jennifer Menster works well with all hair types, Mr. April is Toronto’s top model and artist Raphael, and recipes from Tambou designed for strict vegans that can be enjoyed by all as well as music charts and more.
