This Summer IrishandChin.com went on a road trip, on a quest to seek out exclusive interviews and gain insight into the unique experiences of well established and even legendary personalities who continue to make an indelible mark on Reggae and Dancehall's ever expanding culture.
The team travelled along the United States East Coast (Maria & Ninja) in an effort to satisfy the inquisitive appetite of their loyal website visitors. The website has always enjoyed global viewership through such established video shows as Sound Chat TV; which features indepth interviews with sound system legends, Vybin with the stars; which examines the careers of current established artistes, and Buss di dance; which explores the creativity and overall lifestyle of Dancehall's top dancers among other shows that highlights selectors, music and event producers, etc.
The above coupled with what has become the company's fastest growing flagship brand - Sound Chat Radio- which is streamed live via the site every Mon 7-10pm and Tues 5-8pm (both EST) has seen the demand for more personal unedited stories, being told by especially the industry's many "Stars of the 80's" and earlier, some of whom are no longer recording and or performing, but whose many life experiences ought to be told.
"All interviewees were welcoming and we whole heartedly thank them for sharing," remarked the company's Creative Content Producer Maria aka 'lady_soundchat.' She further quipped, "So many of our culture's stalwarts have gone to the otherside without having their journeys recorde and we at irishandchin are simply attempting to correct that, with those who are still physically among us. It's our genuine pleasure and we remain strengthened by our loyal global audience that shares our enthusiasm."
While the company is still processing the exact tally of interviews conducted, they are certain that this new season of video shows will compliment other critical website activities such as daily news, new music and 'fresh from the editing room' music videos among others entertainment including the Theater page, dedicated to everything and everyone popular within that artistic arena in Jamaica.
From New York's most beloved boroughs of Bronx, Brooklyn & Queens, Irishandchin.com sorted out an eclectic mix of top selectors, dancers and female deejays; via New Jersey's tunnel they linked up some of Garden State's finest selectors; in Hartford the media outlet connected with the area's most sought after radio personalities and selectors; and on a steamy day in Washington that clocked 102 degrees, they sweated and feted with the capitol's musical chiefs. Add select personalities from other key markets to this hot mix and the recipe is a fresh new season of Irishandchin.com's best loved programs!
