OLDIES SUNDAY: Delroy Wilson – Have Some Mercy (1973)


With Valentine’s Day will find couples doing the most come February 14, today’s Oldies Sunday selection looks at the other side of love. We check out the late Delroy Wilson’s 1973 hit, “Have Some Mercy“. Produced by Ainsley Folder, this was released through the Dee Jay Music Label, followed by releases through the Cactus and Sydna Labels the following year. The track finds Delroy pleading for his lady to come back home as they’ve recently broken up. Throughout the song, he shares how things have been upside down for him since she left, and asks for another chance for them to make it right. The song became a hit for Delroy Wilson, and it remains one of his signature classics.

While many will feel the love this week, there are those who wish to have those feelings back. We hope and pray that many broken relationships are fixed this week. If they aren’t fixed this week, may they get that well deserved chance soon. Have some mercy, and make it happen! Hang in there peeps.

“The Apollo Series” Expands Reach & Honours Hip Hop Icon With @TheJMCEffect Partnership!


The Apollo Series, the open stage and artist showcase which has made its mark on Kingston’s live music scene over the past two years, has now partnered with the Jamaica Music Conference (JMC), which seeks to connect music professionals. The JMC team will be present at The Apollo Series on February 8 at The Haven to interact with artistes while the conference, which takes place February 13 – 16, will feature The Apollo Showcase on its opening night at Dub Garden, 10A West King’s House Road, Kingston 10.

The Apollo Showcase will serve as a welcome of sorts for JMC’s special guest of honour, DJ Kool Herc, the Jamaica-born man credited as Hip Hop’s forefather. In appropriate fashion, The Apollo Series has curated a 30-minute showcase that will highlight some of the best local Hip Hop talent to have graced its stage. Five Steez, The Sickest Drama and Inztinkz of the Kingston and New York-based collective The Council is slated to appear, with a feature from Dizzy the Ill One.

“We see the JMC as an essential forum, filling the gap of formal knowledge sharing in the country’s music landscape,” says organiser of The Apollo Series and head of A.C.T.I.O.N. Jamaica, Simon the Writer. “We feel there is a perfect synergy between our two events and this is further strengthened by the proximity in our dates and our mutual affiliation with Reggae Month.”
Simon the Writer said when presented with the opportunity to curate a showcase, The Apollo Series team could not pass up on the opportunity. “We feature all kinds of talent on our platform and that includes local Hip Hop artistes, so it was a no-brainer for us to present a set suitable for a guest of honour such as DJ Kool Herc.”

JMC Chief Executive Officer Kwasi Bonsu says, “We’re elated to have The Apollo Showcase as a part of our conference. They have been doing a lot of groundwork in exposing artistes and I know they will have a strong and unique presentation for our audience.”

The Apollo Showcase is scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. after the official welcome event on Thursday, February 13. The conference, which will continue through to Saturday at the Courtleigh Hotel, will feature other showcases, panels and events geared towards sharing best practices in the music industry. The JMC closes on Sunday, February 16, with the Itopia Life Beach Day at Wickie Wackie Beach.

OLDIES SUNDAY: Twinkle Brothers – Faith Can Move Mountain (1986)


We’re starting off February with something conscious! Today’s Oldies Sunday selection comes from Norman and Ralston Grant a.k.a. Twinkle Brothers with their track, “Faith Can Move Mountain“! Produced by the brothers for the Jah Shaka Music Label in 1986, the song is a testimony that trusting in Jah can lead to endless possibilities. The Bible story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego is an example used to emphasize that having faith can do so much, and you can achieve anything.

With its infectious Production and awesome vocals, “Faith Can Move Mountain” was a regular for various Dub Selectors worldwide, and is still being played today. The single was re-released in 2000 through the Twinkle Brothers’ own Twinkle Music Label. Hold the faith today, no matter what’s going on!
