Biografia POW POW MOVEMENT
It was in the mid Eighties when Ingo Rheinbay & Backra first got in touch with dancehallmusic through a friend who brought some soundsystem cassettes with him from Jamaica, after they had already been listening to Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and others. They were both fascinated by this raw style of music coming from this small island far away in the caribbean Sea, and became very interested in Jamaican culture. In 1992 Reggaemusic was hard to find in Germany, so they decided to promote Dancehallmusic in their hometown Cologne. They first started to build up their own system and named it " Pow Pow" (after two gunshots, wich marked a salute in dancehalls in Jamaica). In the same year they travelled to Jamaica (together with crewmember and artist Gentleman) to find out more about the music they adore so much. Staying in Mobay first, they got introduced to a veteran sound named " King-a-tone" , wich was a popular set in the early days in Jamaica. One day, the veterans decided to show the " whities" how dancehall used to be and how it started. The veterans got their old set out, and played very rare foundation stuff. It was a unforgetable night for the Germans. On the same trip Gentleman had his first appearance on stage, entering a talentshow in Mobay (Glen Devon), and he mashed the place together with German singer Chicken George. Before they got back to Germany the first dubplate specials were voiced, and the enthusiasm was big and the roots were set to become a soundsystem of bigger size, and take the music further in their own country.
Another big influence was Englands very own " David Rodigan" who was soon invited by thy now called " Pow Pow Movement" including another selector Mr. Brown. People started to follow Pow Pow Movement, and numerous parties made them well known in the country. After playing their sound illegally on some festivals, the promoters figured the soundsystem culture was getting popular, and soon Pow Pow was invited to several festivals and concerts. As a result of some fines they had to pay for holding illegal dances, Pow Pow Movement looked for a club to play which was unusual back then. In 1995 Pow Pow started playing every Friday very successfully in their homebase Petit Prince club, which is still " the" dancehallclub on Friday nights. You will find first class dancehall events there, with guestsounds like Stone Love, Bodyguard, David Rodigan, Saxon, Tony Matterhorn etc. playing alongside Germany`s finest throughout the year, aswell as people from different cultures and nationalities jamming together.
In 1995 " Devon" joined the crew as MC. Devon is a Jamaican who has been living in Cologne for ten years now. In 1996 Pow Pow got on the radio with their own show " Pow Pow Reggae Radio" . The rest is history, Pow Pow played their sound on every spot and festival throughout Europe, in places like Italy, Switzerland, France, Netherlands, England etc. as well as international places like Jamaica, U.S.A. , Africa or Canada. Numerous dubplates specials got voiced whenever there was a possibility on their trips to Jamaica, the U.S. or England. Pow Pow Movement truly set a foundation in Dancehall in Germany (Europe) along with some others, playing their own, very unique style. Many young sounds still follow the movement into the next millenium, and make Dancehall music in Europe what it is today. It`s the love for this wonderful music from Jamaica which has brought Pow Pow where they are today.
As a result of being one of Europe`s top class soundsystems Pow Pow Movement entered worldclash 2000 in New York, as Europe`s first intercontinental sound ever for such an event. Although they failed to win, Pow Pow Movement gained worldwide recognition, and is still a sound to watch out for in the future.
In 2001 Pow Pow Movement started producing their own tunes on their own Pow Pow Productions record label. Their first bombastic riddim came out 2002 was called Celebrate which features artists like Beenieman, Turbulence, General Degree and Gentleman and many more. After they won the euroclash in 2002, the label released another riddim in 2003. The legendary shanty town riddim with artists like Sizzla, Luciano or Tanya Stephens was a worldwide success in the dancehalls and is still a riddim you can hear nowadays.
Jamaica 2004, the biggest Reggae radio station IRIE FM plays the new Pow Pow Riddim “Blaze” on heavy rotation. The riddim is taking jamaica by storm, and the big tune from the “artist of the year” Richie Spice “blood again” is on the No. 1 position for weeks on the reggae charts in Jamaica, New York, Europe and Japan. Also Chuck Fender`s “cry for my people” and Junior Kelly`s “blaze” are mashing up the dancehalls all over the globe.
The next production “superior” is another sureshot. Gentleman`s first single of the platinum selling album “confidence” goes straight on the No. 1 position of the german popcharts. The song “superior” becomes one of the most played songs on radio. Produced by Ingo Rheinbay (producer of the year 2004 - 2008 riddim magazin) the selcection gets high international ratings again with songs from Morgan Heritage, Anthony B or Sizzla, just to mention a few.
Pow Pow Movement, now joined by another dynamic MC “Jr. Carl” gets rated as germany`s best soundsystem of the year in 2002 – 2010 (except 2005) at riddim magazin. More songs got released in 2k5 on the “gladiator” riddim with jamaica`s top notch artist Bounty Killer (gehtto gladiator), T.O.K., Daville or germany`s band “seeed”, who also featured the song on their platinum selling album “Next”. Many more riddims like first sight, overstand, respond & surfer were released, also some solo albums from artists like Elijah Prophet, Zareb and Raymond Wright signed on the Pow Pow Label.
Biografia GENERAL PALMA SOUND
The founder, Cristian Palmiotto a.k.a. General Palma, was born in 1974 in Milan (Italy) and his musical tastes were mainly influenced by his mother (reggae enthusiast) and by his uncle (musician).
From the middle of 70's to the end of 80's, roots rock reggae filled up daily life of the entire family.
In early 90's there were realities like One Love Hi Powa, Sud Sound System and Bass Fi Mass who spread the roots and culture message all over Italy.
For the born of General Palma Sound was essential Pergola, the yard of Bass fi Mass in Milan, place where the love for this music grow bigger than ever.
In 1998 the idea to create a sound system was clear and in few months Palma collected many 45" mainly from Jahmekia, an historical records shop in Milan.
The next year Palma got in contact with Burro Banton and started cutting dubplates.
Then he met Jippo and Andy, two austrian guys who early became new members of the crew and from the beginning of 2000 they started to work hard also with Ironshirt Sound to make Fieberbrun, a little town of Tirol, the baddest dancehall yard in Austria. Still right now it's well known to the reggae massives and our bredrens from Shizzle Sound are keeping the fire blazing.
In the following years our crew was spreading good vibes all over Italy, Austria and the rest of the world with a strong dubplates box, mixtapes, competing in soundclashes and building a real sound system with a vast amount of power respecting jamaican tradition.
Everybody knows that all of these things couldn`t happen without the help of his jamaican fada mr. Burro Banton, who always supported General Palma Sound.
During 2014 Palma collaborated with Massive Culture crew from CS Cantiere in Milan to promote some big dancehall events.
Now the family is getting bigger with the experienced soundmen Jahnni, Red, Mirko and Minni.
So people listen to General Palma Sound now and enjoy!!
Blessed love to each and everyone!
Biografia GOLDEN BASS
The music project Golden Bass started up in winter 1997, from the love for reggae and Jamaica of three DJs: KIAN, DAIS, EASY K. Our idea was and is to recreate, in Italy too, what we had seen and heard in Jamaica: in other words the sound system style, a powerful medium for communicating and spreading good vibes. In early ’98, with Sisma Sound from Taranto, we assembled THE GOLDEN BASS SOUND SYSTEM. On April 10th 1998 at the Centro Sociale Autogestito Gola 10 the new Sound System kicked off with the great Alton Ellis’s smashing show. Since then, Golden Bass has rocked the crowd all over Italy, and has organized loads of blazing dancehalls and concerts with Italian and international artists (Sud Sound System, Bounty Killa and many more). Golden Bass has been the resident Sound at Milan Tunnel Club’s wicked reggae nigths, featuring names like Dennis Alcapone, Leroy Gibbons, Chronicle and many many others, and at the historical Leoncavallo’s massive reggae event, each month.
Today Kian, Peo, Bomber, Vacca, Divoice are the crew.
