If you think the reggae community is not very abundant in Vancouver… Think again. I went to the Reef restaurant today and talk to a couple of people from the Vancouver Reggae industry and they gave me the scoop. Mr.Metro, a music producer and a former Juno Award Winner and Much Music Award winner, told me the scene is about to explode, they are recording a lot of local artists in their studio off Commercial Dr. so you can be sure that a lot of music is about to erupt from these guys. But in the meantime we also talked to Maxine Burrell who is one of the founders and president of the West Coast Reggae Caribbean Music Awards, an organization that is going to recognize and unite not only the reggae and the hip hop community, but all the Afro Caribbean music in BC.

Phatty Phatty And The Roaches are an amazing ska, reggae, dub band. We’ve been playing them a lot on Friday Sunrise on 101.9FM in Vancouver. Definitely a local band worth checking out!
Phatty Phatty arrived via The Mothership in Vancouver, BC, Canada sometime just after the year 2000 (details can get hazy). The Phatty’s play an extraterrestrial blend of reggae, dub, ska, with a taste of just about anything else. Bring yer dancing shoes to a Phatty’s show (blue suede if ya got em), cause that’s what’s it all about!
