Stone Love

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 Kingstonnights would boom with open-air dances, animated by popular sound systems. StoneLove 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 anexceptional 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 thetop sound systems.

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

Bootleg tapes of Stone Love's sessions have always been hot commodities, and finallyWee-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, theinimitable live vibe was captured, with one-of-a-kind mixes and selections from topdancehall artists from the past three decades.
