Fashion Night Out is slowly becoming one of the most
anticipated events on the fashion calendar in Jamaica. It’s that one night
where a long list of selected stores have an amazing sale out on all or most of
their items in stock. When you add that up you get shopping, shopping,
shopping!! It’s truly a great experience. Nothing puts me in a better mood than
shopping and I’m so happy when everybody else is just out there with me being
thrilled by something they just bought and all excited!!! It is just absolutely
Fantastic! The experience only comes around once a year and this year’s Fashion
Night Out has been scheduled for September 8, 2011 from 5pm – 10pm. From
previous experience the streets can get very hectic, and you can also mull
around form 5pm to 10 pm and unfortunately come home empty handed. Well this
year we had whipped up some foolproof tricks so that you and yours can have the
ultimate experience from start to finish. Follow these tips an all you need at
the end of the night is a ride home.
Today Social Kingston is shining the spotlight on Jam2 Productions. Churning out hits such as Kartel's Beyonce Wine on the 'Side Walk University' rhythm and Nah Climb on the Americk rhythm as well as Lady Saw's 'Beg you some money nuh' on their Summer Bounce rhythm, Jam 2 Productions has come to be associated with quality dancehall productions.Having worked with some of the biggest names in dancehall such as Vybz Kartel, Lady Saw, Sean Paul, Anthony B, they have rightfully earned their respect and confirmed their relevance in little over ten years. Among their catalog of productions are Sugar Cane Rhythm, New Moment rhythm, Pull up rhythm, and Splash Out rhythm just to name a few. More Recently (2011) they have released both Ska and Action rhythm which features quite a few young talents such as Keda, Lisa Hyper, and Khago.
Q: What are your full names?
A: Jammy 'Jam2' James & Camar 'Flavaunit' Doyles
A: Jammy- Music Producers, Camar- Recording Artist
Q: How long have you been in the music industry?
A: A bit over 11years
Q: Of all the things you wanted to do why did you choose music?
A: Music allows us to express ourselves freely, It's what comes to us naturally without any extensive thought process, we find it very fulfilling, exciting and it keeps us very happy and well accomplished after every unique project.
Q: Do you believe that music impacts the society to the extent that critics say it does?
A: Well, if the critics are talking about it and even going as far as to agree that it does then I guess the answer to this question would already be... Yes! We do believe that music has a very big impact on society.
Q: Dancehall is undoubtedly a very raw brand of music. Do you think that that element of dancehall needs to be curbed?
A: We think if its raw, why curb it? But in a business world where record sales is the objective, we do think that curbing the sound of raw dancehall in order for it to reach a broader market and audience wouldn't be such a bad idea, it would more help to cross our sound and our culture.
Q: Ten, twenty years down the line, if people were to use one word to describe your music what would you want that to be?
Q: Apart from dancehall what genre of music do you listen to the most?
A: We listen to everything but we do enjoy Hip-Hop and and a few Pop Records
Q: What does the Jam 2Productions team do when they’re not doing music?
A: We spend time with our families and we try to enjoy a few party scenes "Chug It" is one of our favorite events.
Q: If I could give you a three-day vacation pass for anywhere in Jamaica where would you go?
A: Hedonism II or Breezes Resorts
Q: How important is image to you and why?
A: Image is everything to us! It is very, very important... we take our image thing very seriously because it ties us in even more with our fans and the general public, and it also gives us a sense of pride and it makes us feel confident when heading out on the road to take on the next job. People tend to respect you more based on how you carry yourself.
Q: Name one fashionable item that you have too much of?
A: Shoes/ Sneakers
Q: Name a piece of Jewellery you cant leave home without.
A: Our Chains and Time piece
This pic has been up and around on blackberry messenger profiles and it probably surfaced somewhere on the internet. It is popular because it resonates with us. Its message is simple: focus on what’s important. And invariably what should be most important to each of us is our own selves.
We all come to points in our lives where we feel we need to make drastic change. Not only is this normal, it is necessary and admirable. The capacity to improve (especially dramatically) is one of those things that separate human beings from animals. What is detestable is maintaining unhealthy relationships or practices for whatever excuses.
This is probably my favourite time of year. Even if you have work or school there is just something that's so much more relaxed than Januarys or Septembers. Blue skies, a big bright sun, little kisses from the wind...... oh boy I Love Summers!!
Jamaicans live to be entertained and Kingston is the dealer that provides us with the limitless intoxicating drug of parties that we can never get enough of. When we're at home or work from day to day we start to get restless. We fidget and itch, waiting for our fix, the sight of home or work nauseates us and then we remember, "Yes the weekend starts today = Party!!" We are a social hub for flashing lights and urban entertainment at it's best.
Most brands of parties are enough to get us out of the dump and settle our minds but there are some brands that are raw, strong, potent. People will pay top dollar for one go of it, some of the best highs you can imagine and one of those brands is OSMOSIS. Osmosis is definitely one of those events that people have on their calendars from the 1st of January. It's rare; only twice per year and party junkies, and fashion fanatics never miss the opportunity. This is truly an exquisite drug. The party is super all inclusive; from the venue, to food and drink, to the music to unedited fashion, Osmosis creates the ultimate experience.
