Join Joshua Chamberlain as he interviews King Jammy and kids this week on THE LISTENING PARTY #25. The Listening Party airs on Sundays on BigUpRadio's Dancehall station. Foundation Jamaica producer and sound man King Jammy had a nice run at the top of the musical hierarchy in the 80s and 90s. Jammy’s kids, Trevor aka Baby G, Jammy aka Jam 2 and Lloyd Jr aka John John, are maintaining quite well the family dynasty and the studio in the Waterhouse area of Kingston is once again home to weekly parties. Today TLP 025 features Jammys, the next generation–their music, their family and more. If you would like more details about the music visit the TLP Facebook page at facebook.com/
About KING JAMMY:
Born Lloyd James, Kingston, Jamaica, West Indies. Jammy, the undisputed king of computerized, digital reggae music for the 80s, was interested in little else but the sound system business from a very early age. He began by building amplifiers and repairing electrical equipment from his mother's house in the Waterhouse area of downtown Kingston, and was soon playing live with his own sound system. His prowess earned him a deserved local reputation and as Prince Jammy, he built equipment for many Waterhouse sounds. He was even acknowledged by the legendary King Tubby, another Waterhouse resident, with whom Jammy often worked.
