Air Waves


Air Waves is a Dane 'Fire Links' Johnson. Fira Link been around for a long time, and you may remember other productions such as Mad Instruments, Chacka Chacka, Global of 2006.

Rivalry in the dancehall culture is getting more and more similar to football hooliganism, but as always in JA, spiced with gun battles.

I’ve always enjoyed the rivalry, clashing and the competiveness of the JA music scene, all the way from the Jazzbo vs. I Roy days (Jazzbo: “Gal Boy I-Roy” – read about that “Mother of all DJ feuds” elsewhere in jamrid) to the Kartel/Ninja fistfight at Sting a couple of years ago (also in here somewhere). I’ve found it very charming and an extra dimension to the music business and an acknowledgement of my own view that that music is a very very important thing :).

However, to me it’s has in the last couple of years reached a level where it’s not entertaining anymore, just sad and uninteresting. When people are getting killed trying to convince each other Movado is a better performer then Kartel things has gotten very far away from the entertainment thing that dancehall is supposed to be about. I wont’ take any time to write about it, I feel it’s a waste of my time, but if you want to have an outsiders view of where things are at right now I recommend this link.

A Powerful Sub-Culture Called Dancehall

On the other hand, a lot of people seem to be very engaged in the rivalry, so perhaps it’s just me… To be honest perhaps it’s the fact that it seem to a large extent be the same feuds over and over again, Beenie vs. Bounty year after year.

The murder rate in JA reached new heights last year, with a rough a approximation of 1500 - 2000 murders, which is a per capita rate would put JA in the top 10 or so…. It’s shouldn’t have to be like that, Jamaica is not Iraq, there is no war there, there is no religious conflicts, no conflicts over land.
