Descending On the Dial
Yesterday, (the longest day of the year), the radio air waves were hosting artists from 3rd World Records. In WDAR studios, with Jay Kay live on ‘The International Music Show’ from 11.00am were Teekay Da Newborn, #Ashman and Zeenie. Accompanying them was leading designer Abohla Razac, of Razac Gear clothing.
Although the party’s’ arrival to the show was later than expected, we still had a small preview of the world revolving through music. Apologising all around, the posse got comfortable as the host of the show got down to it. After much anticipation, Teekay Da Newborn was finally in the building, and live on the radio.
Dublin listeners were spoiled with an exclusive personal interview with Teekay, even though it was cut short. How the man operates and generates ideas is exceptional; gladly he spoke of his inspiration and influence.
From past to present musicians, to rare and hard to find soul beats, the influence expands far and wide. Fela Kuti, Tupac Shakur, Immortal Technique, just to name a few advocates, and the same man will listen to Irish folk music, Boson ova and country. The belief of survival, and the life entitlements each and every one of us has was made clear with “Water, food and shelter, for the starving kids in Africa”. Teekay spat about sixteen bars a cappella, and you could tell he was smiling.
The little Miss Zeenie was a twinkle on the show, and gave us a taste of her own music singing a cappella of her song “Be With Me”. With such a soft voice it is no surprise that she also sings in a Gospel choir. Upon listening to her beautiful voice, I wanted to hear more. She also features on the songs “Freak Intentions” and “Juvi Luv” by Teekay Da Newborn, released not too long ago.
Signing off with thanks and praise was #Ashman, letting us know that they will return with a special performance and brand new exclusive materials for WDAR fm.
Tune in July 12th (Tuesday) to www.WDAR.ie for the next live, in studio radio stream, with Jay Kay on the ‘The International Music Show’ at 11.00am to catch the return of artists hailing from the 3rd World Records camp.
