Biographical Info

Blackstar was established in 1994 where we started playing under Andrew Hanwell’s house in a small room that we called ‘The Underground’ with about 30 people. (house party) The name Blackstar is significant as it was the name of a nice sound in Jamaica from the 80’s. I got some Technic turntables and bought my coffin from Magic (Souljah One) who was my favorite Bermuda Sound. We played ‘out’ in our first dance at the sports club in Sands (Watford Bridge) and then had our first good crowd at our second dance at the Squash Club in Devonshire for a party.

We kept many dances at Mariners Club with an average of 250 attendees each time. We had the opportunity early in our career to play along sounds such as Killamanjaro and Massive B. We won a radio contest on Power 95, Bermuda’s biggest radio station at the time; with the prize being a one hour show once a week for 6 months. We had our own promotion and biggest dance with over 800 people at Spanish Point Boat club at one of our ‘Summer Bash’ series. We had a small sound system, 2 single bins, which worked for most of our parties. Anytime we would keep bigger dances, we would use Awesome Hi Power sound system.

We’ve had the opportunity to play along with some legendary sounds such as Killamanjaro, Stonelove, Rodigan, Mighty Crown and open for live concerts with such artists as Shaggy, Beres Hammond, Collie Buddz, Luciano, and Tarrus Riley. The first big artist we voiced on dub was Sanchez when he was in Bermuda for a show. We were known in our early years for our Sanchez dub (Praise Him) and our Shabba dub (Heart of a Lion). We’ve been fortunate enough to have played along side of the majority of Bermuda sounds throughout our 21 year history. Just a few of the people we have to thank for all of the opportunities and help throughout the years are: Kent (Dub) – Dub City Records Donovan McCoy Declan Harris & Wild Apache Awesome Sound (Mark P, Rocky, Mouse) Magnum Force Sound

Biographical Info

Desert Eagle International was started Feb 2003 after doing the sounds first official gig at a Valentines Party at University of Miami alongside Willy Chin of Black Chiney Sound. Original members Dj Wez and Dj Aztec came up with the idea of forming the sound during their time in college in Ft Lauderdale. From there the sound started to get bookings from various local uptown promoters due to the following the sound had with the college crowd at their respective college.

In 2004 – 2005 Desert Eagle International then started to get booked more frequently at various clubs and venues all over Ft Lauderdale and Miami also taking on more college parties and dances as well. With the success of the sound growing and getting more experienced overseas the sound had already built up a stable dub box from various artists that passed thru South Florida making Desert Eagle International a candidate for its first ever clash against one of the top clash sounds in Miami, Jah Cuban Sound and jamaica’s notorious sound killer Ricky Trooper and a follow up clash in Bermuda against heavyweights OGS Genesis , Stalwart & Souljah 1.

In 2006 the sound was contacted and officially merged with a faction from Sheffield,UK which consisted of members Jumbo, Fada Prince, Diamondz, G Tek and Infa Red. In 2008 Dj Aztec had then already graduated and the sound then moved to Bermuda where it was playing a wide-range of music from Reggae, Latin, Soca, Top 40 etc actively in various clubs, events and venues island wide. In 2013 the sound was brought back to Ft Lauderdale and is still active in UK and Ft Lauderdale.

Biographical Info

SOULJAH1 BIOGRAPHY

Souljah1 was founded late 1991-92 By the current Owner/Selector Magic Chemist(Fada Magixx), and a few members of the former defunct sound that they were playing called RudeBoy International.

The sounds origin is from their neighborhood in Bermuda called Devil’s Hole, Smith’s Parish, which always has had a rich history with reggae on the island.

Magic, Charles in Charge(Charly Blaks), Prento, Wilton Irie, Jeffrey Crucial, Ardy Digital(owner) and others, had already gained notoriety for playing the sweetest selection and top juggling on Rude Boy Sound.

the late 80s were dominated by Rude Boy(original owner Andre “Ardy Digital” Smith),  accomplishing many feats as a youth crew in the business(sound members ages ranged from 12-21) such as introducing new songs into the dancehall, Partnering with the local Sound System Company to Beta-test new tech Sound equipment, bussing local artists(Corvin Melody, Ali, Troyan), hosting foreign artists on the sound such as General Levy, Sweetie irie, and the legendary SAXON Crew, to mention a few of their youth accomplishments.

Magic left the island to go to College for Electronics in 1991 in South London, leaving the sound’s reputation on a hi-note, but  from complacency, the remaining members left Rude Boy sound to boil down to nothing during his absence.

This was a crucial point in time for Magic as being in UK, he linked up with the Saxon crew that came to Bermuda months before and started rolling full-time with the giant veteran UK sound, who was at the time themselves building the sound back from a hiatus. Here is where he learned the ins and outs of sound system, UK style. How boxes were strung up and played and how big selectors like Musclehead and Trevor Sax would prepare and play for dances.

Watching Saxon rise inspired Magic to regroup a new sound starting fresh…Starting as 1 Soul, in Jah’s army and building a movement. hence came the name ‘SOULJAH1’.

Souljah1 sound started from the bottom of the ladder playing at clubs like Sparrows Nest and Kings Port, gaining fast notoriety as the new sound thats got TUNE!

Bermuda swiftly took to their new UK oriented style of juggling and heavy heavy dub plate infusion that wasn’t common in dances before Souljah1.

Charles in Charge(Charly Blak) and Magic took many trips in to the trenches of Jamaica to build dub links and pursue top name artists for the sj1 dub box, and also built a powerful 8 scoop sound system to replace the old Rudeboy sound remnants that they were struggling with(’93).

Within a year they were rated as the NEW top sound of Bermuda and continued with a steady influence on Dancehall culture in Bermuda as one of the Island’s defenders and Heavyweight sounds.

throughout the sound’s lifespan of 25+ yrs and counting, Souljah1 has started careers for:

Lenky Boy: Selector/MC (now on his own Lenky Gaza Global  Movements)- Lenky’s introduction to dub plates and MC’ing was around ’95,  Magic went to College again in ’99-2000 and Lenky held down the fort in Bda. during the next few years as solo selector on the sound.

Upon Magic’s return, Lenky decided to part way with the sound to pursue a solo career, which at the time was a working trend for other popular  selectors like Tony Matterhorn, Firelinks etc.

Barrygun: Selector (recruited on sound in 2002-3)

Dennis the Menace aka D-Block: Barry’s accomplice, Dennis started on the sound at the same time as Barry.

Souljah1’s greatest notoriety was during the Legendary clash years of the mid 90s, where they practically played or clashed every Well known sound in the world, when they came to Bermuda.

Stone Love

Road Star

BodyGuard

Black Scorpio

Silverhawk

Saxon

Bass Odyssey

King Addies

LP

Sterosonic

David Radigon

Soul Supreme

4×4 Exodus

Robbo Ranx

JamRock

Pieces

Metro Medio

Riddim Force

and many many more.

most noted dances:

was when Magic met there great babyFace of King Addies, in a One for One crowd instigated standoff at Clayhouse Inn (’93)

Souljah1 held their ground against the notorious NY badman sound, which impressed Babyface enough to carry the cassette foreign and boost it out…the rest is history.(Babyface and Magic are bredrins up to this day)

Their notoriety in the Dub Cutting and sound cassette world even landed them a date in New York in ’94, to be Bermuda’s only sound to Play in Brooklyn’s notorious BILTMORE BALL ROOM, and win a clash (Souljah1 vs Earth Ruler ’94),  even got Gun Salute!

Souljah1 eased off of the clash scene during the late 90’s – early 2000’s and started playing more juggling events, as the World Wide Clash and Dancehall scene slowed down, and the invent of Bashments and R&B/Rap parties became the norm.

Along with parental duties of a new son and daughter, and starting his own IT company, Magic eased off of the dub plate and clash vibes.

Until a spark in 2006, namely Ryderz promotions, a new promoter ready to bring back the clash business, prompted a quick and easy comeback on the scene, which lead to US dates, dates in Antigua, Trinidad ,a Historical win in one on one clash with Bass Odyssey, and a return clash with the Legendary David Radigon, where Souljah1 unleashed a once in a lifetime custom dub plate from newly buss local artist, COLLIE BUDDZ.

The clash  scene once again simmered down in Bermuda, Souljah1 started to play more grown people oriented “Oldies” events, with promoters slating selected DJs of old school rather than sound crews. During this time, Barry and Dennis took a break from the sound and concentrated on Family and work as well.

Souljah1 rebuilt a new sound system with customized equipment from UK in 2010, slowly building and waiting for the next swing in the entertainment cycle.

circa 2011 due to unforeseen circumstances, Magic decided to take a break from the whole sound industry, not being pleased with the music quality, along with the negative aura that accompanied it,he moved on to pursue a personal path with God and family.

During this hiatus, he parted from the hardcore dancehall life and helped build local Christian Singer, Troy Anthony’s, record label and sound system  called FyahBeat Unlimited.

also around  this time Dennis and Barry decided to step back up on the sound stage, and with the help of Charly Blak, started creating successful monthly juggling events and even entered a local sound clash with the current hot sound at the time “Riddim Force” from Florida (2013), barely losing in a controversial 1 for 1 count.

Meanwhile, fortified with x-amount of conscious dub plates, Magic and Fyahbeat touched the scene as a new conscious sound in the business, along with a record label Kingzway7.

Such accomplishments, Life’s lessons, and the Father’s plan, all inspired Magic to take back the reigns of his personal creation, The Big Bad SoulJah1 sound with a GodBless  Selector!.

Mid 2015, marked Magic’s return,

along with Charlie Blak(aka Charles in Charge, who is also a successful defense lawyer in Bermuda) Barry and Dennis the dynamic duo juggling team.

Souljah1 has timelessly proven to be one of Bermuda’s shining light Sounds that are keeping the sound system culture alive

Biographical Info

Stalwart Sound was a concept two brothers from Bermuda had for many years before it’s actual inception. Growing up in the island of Bermuda J-Groove and Jah-Son were exposed to the whole spectrum of reggae/sound system culture from an early age and began talking about one day getting in to the sound business ourselves. Early in 2001 both time and finances allowed and we began the building process acquiring both equipment and dubplates. From there we had a few local dates in Bermuda but our desire was to reach a more Global audience so we began the first live internet radio show from our tiny island. Stalwart has toured overseas now in Canada, Germany and the United States and in December 2005 we won our first local sound clash (Lord Of The Ringz) to be shortly followed by an international victory in March 2006 (Checkmate) and our first overseas win in May 2007 (Philly Link Up). The name “Stalwart” means as Luciano says “Strong and firm and always predominant” and that is our motto and pledge. BIG RESPECT TO ALL OUR FRIENDS PASSING THROUGH!! We look forward to playing soon in a venue near you !!
