Vibrating energetic sessions and the contact to the massive make Luv Messenger shows nights to remember.
# Please tell me about the most important cornermarks in the sounds history, like clashes, the baddest dances, etc.
This year we had a couple of crazy dances outside, like Fiestas de Gracia in Mozart Street, as well as the San Juan Celebrations at the Beach are always a highlight during the summer season in Barcelona.
# Which plans do you have for your sound in the near future and what are the real longtime plans for it?
Barcelona might be well known all over the world for many things like tourism and football, but the reggae scene is still underdeveloped. That’s why we are still looking forward to have our own regular dance to be able to promote reggae dancehall the in our way.
# Which persons, sounds, artists have influenced you musicallywise?
hehe.. too many to mention… sound: Stone Love, Label: Motown, Artists: all of them.
# What was the first dubplate you ever voiced, and do you still play it?
Luv Messenger has voiced a handfull of Dubs and likes to play Reggie Stepper’s “yes indeed” once in a while, but generally we are a sound that does not rely on dubplates to perform.
