Jamaican Artist Miguel Bell Debuts Manchester Based, “Shadow Trapped” Comic Series!


As a child growing up in Mandeville, Manchester, Miguel “The Drawtist” Bell was all about Art. His daily sketches caught the eyes of his peers and anyone who’d be interested. From his School days to adult life, he never stopped developing his skills. Recently, he leveled up by releasing his first official Comic Book series titled, “Shadow Trapped“! With a storyline originating in Mandeville, “Shadow Trapped” sheds light on a masked Serial Killer simply named, “Pinocchio Killer” and the various characters involved. Part one of the Comic follows main character Salem Smith and her encounter with the Serial Killer. Highlights of the Comic so far include Miguel’s alma mater, Manchester High School, its neighbouring Mandeville Plaza, and Villa Plaza. The Comic stands out as it’s one of the few in recent years that shares Jamaican origins.

The art style featured throughout the Comic is inspired by Japanese Anime, CreepyPastas, with edgy Manga titles. The Comic Book series is broken up into 3 parts with parts 2 and 3 releasing in the coming months. In the meantime, part 1 is available here, and if you wish to commission Miguel for artwork, you can reach out to him here.

.@DJHearNoEvil15 Gears Up To Speak At @DeafEmpowerAF Keynotes In Jamaica


The Deaf Empowerment Abroad Foundation (D.E.A.F.) has selected DJ Hear No Evil from Mount Vernon, New York as their keynote speaker in Kingston and Knockpatrick (Manchester) Jamaica. On March 15th and 16th, he will be touring several schools in Jamaica, sharing the art of DJing, overcoming obstacles, and his story as a Deaf/hearing impaired DJ.

The Deaf Empowerment Abroad Foundation aims to inspire, affirm, and motivate the youth in the Deaf community. The moves made will assist in breaking down the beliefs in Jamaican society that Deaf = Dumb, and Deaf = Can Not. These attitudes are also prominent in most Deaf children’s homes, resulting in negative stigmas, non-acceptance, and loss of self-worth. The camp affirms Deafness as a culture and aims to empower Deaf youth with the knowledge of Deaf Can!

Stepping outside of my zone, I let my hands tell the story to express myself on a deeper level through the set to
raise the bar to obtaining the huge opportunities whether if i’m Deaf/hard of hearing or not.

@DaSupremeMusic Steams Up The Green With @TheRealDJCrooks On “How Yuh Mean”!


This goes out to all the Stoners, Steamers, and connoisseurs of the herb! Mandeville based Recording Artist DaSupreme wants us all to burn Babylon, one steam at a time on “How Yuh Mean“! Produced by DJ Crooks, DaSupreme speaks on the meaning of “steaming the herb” to him, being able to take his steam sessions anywhere, and chasing away those with a dirty heart and those who take hard drugs over a wondeful slow paced Reggae production that brings a vibe with every puff. The track appears on his debut self titled EP, and he promises that listeners will fully enjoy what he brings to the Reggae scene as he’ll cover an array of topics backed with amazing production. Check out the track after DaSupreme’s statement.

DaSupreme on “Steaming”

Steaming is the act of consuming Marijuana in one of its purest form; by inhaling the vapor. It has been around for many years but I was only introduced to it about seven years ago when one of my close friends started making steam chalices but in a modern and unique way. I started helping him to sell these creations by posting videos and images of these items on Instagram, and now his creations are used all over the world. Even rising Reggae star Keznamdi posted one of these one-of-a-kind steam chalices that was made specially for him on his social media. Therefore, doing the track “How Yuh Mean” was very organic to me because it has been such an impactful part of my life. As a Rastafarian, the act of steaming for me has a personal spiritual connection with a plant that is sacred to me and therefore is seen as a holy sacrament. Also, the instrumental was provided by frequent collaborator, DJ Crooks, who produced my previous 2 singles, and is also a Rastafarian, which gave the energy of the track a whole different layer. The song was written by me and recorded at my home studio in Manchester, Jamaica, while DJ Crooks mixed and mastered it.
