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.

Vinny

It.. just.. It was fate, it had to happen” – @iAmVinDon

Do you disdain Jamaica? How do you feel about Hip-Hop generally? I’d cleverly advise you to close your browser if you come across this page not willing to #PayAttention. Eutopia is the place to be March 28th & even though the event is Kingston-based, i’m about to prove that some of the island’s most talented rappers do not solely only originate from the nation’s capital.

VinDon of BluRok is present.

Q: Welcome to the #PayAttention line up! You ready to hit the stage and deliver a killer performance

A: Respect! No doubt, it’s what I do.

Bonus: I caught wind that you’re the son of Ninja Man, can you confirm this?

Pay Attention March 28 2015 Flyer (Front)

Kingston, Jamaica’s premier Hip Hop party and artiste showcase series, Pay Attention, is set to take things up a notch with its next staging on Saturday, March 28, at its new venue – Eutopia, above Burger King, on Knutsford Boulevard in New Kingston.

This upcoming staging of Pay Attention will be its 18th since its inception in April 2012. “We’re all grown up now,” says host and organiser, TSD. “We’ve entered into a marriage with Eutopia because they respect our vision and have the ideal venue for our audience.”

Among the improvements noted by TSD are increased space, more reasonably priced drinks and a dedicated smokers’ deck. As per usual, recorded music will be played by Inztinkz and Deadline Sound, while the featured performers are Koro Fyah, Vindon, Imije and Scotty & The Dreamkillers.

Admission is $1,000 at the gate, while presold tickets are $600. Ladies will be granted 2-for-1 entry until showtime at 10:30 p.m and gates open at 9 p.m.
