A household name in Jamaica, Stone Love represents the popular street culture ofdancehall.

When Winston Powell ("Wee-Pow") began spinning in the early '70s, the hot Kingston nights would boom with open-air dances, animated by popular sound systems. Stone Love soon became a must-hear, drawing long lines and jamming every venue.

Wee-Pow teamed up with selectors Rory and Cancer, and began to build up an exceptional archive of original dub plates. With a strong reputation for only the "wickedest tracks", and a turntable style all their own, Stone Love remained one of the top sound systems.

Stone Love

Stone Love took their radical riddims overseas in the '80s, acquainting audiences in the USA, England, Canada, Europe and Japan with the hardest Jamaican sounds. They established a permanent presence in New York, from which to attack strategic points worldwide.

Bootleg tapes of Stone Love's sessions have always been hot commodities, and finally Wee-Pow, Rory and Cancer pulled it all together in a studio album "Stone Love Live", released in 1995. With coordination from Rob Holt, Mike Cacia and Jamie Stewart, the inimitable live vibe was captured, with one-of-a-kind mixes and selections from top dancehall artists from the past three decades.
