GET TO KNOW: @TheNewWaveJA


For years there have been talks about making venues for fresh young talent to showcase their works in Jamaica. While some have popped up over time, one that is here to stay is held at the Stones Throw Bar every monday by the name of “New Wave”! Located at 1b Mannings Hill Rd. in Kingston, patrons witness displays of Art from some rising stars from 8PM to 12AM. Since its inception in late 2016, it has quickly become the talk of the town, or rather the Island. For those who don’t know, we recently interviewed a couple members behind the “New Wave” team, Lindsey Lodenquai (Head Coordinator), and Davida-Mae Chambers (Social Media Manager/Coordinator). Open your mind for a “New Wave”!

13thStreetPromo: For those who don’t know, what is the origin of New Wave? How did it come about from an idea to an event?
New Wave: New Wave began with Protoje and Jason Panton who envisioned a platform for emerging local talents- once the idea is there, there will always be a way for it to manifest to fruition.
13SP: Describe a standard night at a New Wave event.
NW: VIBESY! It’s always a great feeling being there with persons who are equally enthused about culture and creativity!

13SP: “Jamaica has so much to offer culturally and artistically from this generation”. What’s New Wave’s stance on this comment, and how important is it for events like this to push Jamaica’s talent?
NW: The comment is so true, the talent this generation has is through the roof! Once we have the resources, It is our responsibility to nurture this talent and allow it to flourish.

@TwinOfTwins Return With Vol. 11 In Their “Stir It Up” Series!


Update Again: In A Few Hours!

Update: Delays

If you do not know TWIN OF TWINS you must live under a rock and even so I think the rock would surely attest to the significance of these brothers to the Jamaican culture through their popular hit series STIR IT UP that holds the attention of Jamaicans since its inception in the mid 90s. The Twin of Twins are set to release their eleventh installment of their highly anticipated STIR IT UP (Volume 11) and the fans are in a frenzy. We caught up with Patrick (Curly Lox the Voice Box) Gaynor earlier this week. When quizzed about why they took nearly four years to release another volume after the tremendous success of Volume 10 and all the volumes before? Gaynor explained that they’ve been going through a lot considering and reconsidering where the work is concerned. He went on to say that sometimes he feels that the work is not worth his time, effort, finance and resources that he personally put into these projects.

@KyngTaj Whips @KyngRick Back Into Shape In “The Personal Trainer”!


This past Summer saw an abundance of folks being “Beach Ready” as they’ve spent hours in the Gym (For some, minutes).

Although Rick went overboard with the snacks to gaining so much weight, do you think Taj’s methods helped him out in the end? Watch the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
