OLDIES SUNDAY: @BusySignal_Turf – Step Out (2005)


The 2000s gave us some awesome Dancehall music, don’t you agree? Today’s Oldies Sunday selections brings some energy from that era courtesy of Busy Signal! Today we feature his breakout hit, “Step Out“! Produced by Equiknoxx Music on the “Step Out Riddim“, this was released in 2005 and had eyes and ears focused on Busy as he brought a unique sound to the game.

The song proved to be successful as it helped to propel the Deejay onto the forefront of the Dancehall scene. The success didn’t come without controversy however as various Producers were credited to producing the track. In the end, the true Producers were given the proper recognition, and the track went on to be featured on many compilations including Busy Signal’s 2006 debut album, “Step Out“. Since “Step Out”, Busy has went on to release many more hit singles and projects. Though he was in trouble with the law and found himself in the midst of various feuds, Busy’s career went on to flourish to this day.

INTERVIEW: @KingBiggsSOL x @InnovoEnt


Innovo

If you’re a listener of Jamaican Hip Hop, you might be familiar with the Rapper/Producer and now Entrepreneur Julian Morrison a.k.a. “King Biggs“. Affiliated with the Sons of Liberty collective and Equiknoxx Music, Biggs has made room along with his song writing and production for Innovo Entertainment. I’ve had the chance to chat with him recently about this new venture, his aims for it and future endeavors.

13thStreet: King Biggs, you’re known in the Jamaican Hip Hop circles as a Rapper, Producer and a part of the Sons Of Liberty collective, now you’re dabbling in a new venture. What is Innovo Entertainment?

KB: Innovo Entertainment is a brand that produces interactive entertainment experiences for adventurous and tasteful young Jamaicans. It will produce parties but that won’t be the flagship. New entertainment options such as fitness challenges, entrepreneur expos and events celebrating international culture will give people something else to do other than party. The ethos of Innovo Entertainment is the celebration of the effects of Globalization on 80s and 90s babies in Jamaica. Most of the events involve activities so patrons don’t come and stand still, they’re a part of something unfolding before their eyes.

13thStreet: What made you decide to start this venture? When was the idea brought into existence?
