We’re flying across the pond for another time and heading to the city that never sleeps aka the 5 Boroughs aka the Big Apple.
To be excactly, we’re visiting just one borough uptown called the Bronx.
Maybe you already noticed that I’m not just sticking to the “Young” anymore, neither to the very “Upcoming”, but I think thats not the worst thing if I can feature such sounds as the big, bad and bold
#Please introduce your Sound and all the members to the readers.
BLUNT POSSE SOUND FROM BRONX N.Y.
As far as “members” its a Posse of us. Immediate members you we would say Father Blunt, Ajax, Mr. Lee, Dutchman, & Diamond (and we currently working with a new addition to the posse name Mix A- Lot).
Then the street team consists of Aggie B, Tru Dad, Ricky, Run Run, Big Ralph and a few others. So its really and truly a Posse.
#When was the founding of your Sound and since when do you djing?
The Sound was officially launched around 1997 by Father Blunt, Ricky, Dutchman & Tru Dad.
Ajax came along a year and a half later. We got our start doing house parties, basement dances & block parties.
#Can you describe which style your sound plays mostly?
These Days our sound is balanced as a hardcore jugglin clash sound. The style of the sound can vary on any given night. It all depends on the vibe of the patrons.
#Please tell me about the most important cornermarks in the sounds history, like clashes, the baddest dances, etc.
One of our major “corner marks” in Blunt Posse History was when we first played Killamanjaro for our first big dance in a club called ACT III in the Bronx. Afrique sound was originally billed for the dance with Kilamanjaro but they backed out of it two weeks before the date. The owner of the club asked Father Blunt if he could fill in for Afrique. That night everyone including Ricky Trooper was in for a big suprise.
Another cornerstone in Blunt Posse history was when we clashed Mighty Crown in the Bronx. They underestimated Blunt Posse and the dance is talked about still today.
A more recent accomplishment was defeating Bass Odyssey & Luv Injection in UK War Of The Worlds.
#Which plans do you have for your sound in the near future and what are the real longtime plans for it?
In The Near Future we plan To create an even greater international perspective for the sound and eventually turn BLUNT POSSE into a brand.
#Which persons, sounds, artists have influenced you musicallywise?
Basically every soundsystem & producer that has contributed to this dancehall movement in some way or another is an Influence to Blunt Posse “musically wise”.
#What was the first dubplate you ever voiced, and do you still play it?
One Of The first dubs we ever voiced was “Mr D.C.” by Sugar Minott and we still play it today. We even revoiced it with Sugar in combination with a DJ.
Thank you very much for your time and big up yourself. Also a big thank you to Bonita Desperado again!
