1985 // YOUTHMAN PROMOTIONS CREW ON 88.1 FM CKLN (CANADA)

Sugar Minott's Youthman Promotions went to Canada for the first time in 1985 and Sugar, Trevor Junior, Donna P, Daddy Ants, Colourman, Blacka T & Dickie Ranking with Pleasure Minott (Sugar's brother) at the controls made a live appearance on Canadian radio. They all take turns toasting on the Sleng Teng. Then they slow down the Stalag riddim b-side to 33 rpm and Dickie Ranking raps the 'Rambo Fast and Slow' lyrics as they switch the speed of the record back and forth from 45 to 33 while mixing the bass. "Bags of lyrics" the deejays seem stoned out of their brains when they give their interviews but they suddenly become eloquent when they chat their lyrics. The interviewer sounds shook in the beginning, he keeps referring to the "375 people" surrounding the studio. I wonder what the Canadian reggae scene was like in the 80s... Speaking of which a Canadian sound won World Clash last year, the sound name Black Reaction. I have yet to hear the audio for that but I heard good things about their performance.
