Mix CD Throwbacks - St. Croix & Trinidad Massive (2006 & 2007)
June 18, 2012 04:24PM
These were some of the first Blessed Coast mixes to touch the streets. The first one "St. Croix Massive" was mixed & compiled by Governor Lee following an extended visit to the VI back in 2005. I believe this wast the first time St. Croix music hit the West Coast (correct me if Im wrong) when we sold these mixes at Reggae on the River in 2006... The following year was when we all first heard and saw a lot of the artists on here.. This mix is timeless... Mixed live, 1 take on 2 CD turntables..

As a follow up to "St. Croix Massive" we released "Trinidad Massive" which was along the same lines.. Some great early works by Marlon Asher, Khari Kill, Jah Bami, Prophet Benjamin & more.. This one was compiled & mixed again live one 2 CD turntables by Jack Riddim (Formerly of Blessed Coast now founder of I-Dwell Records) & Lionize.

Let us know what you think!! Real minimal on effects & samples... No Dubs ... Just classic tunes ...

yow Ryan I and crew...

a nice little side anecdotal historical perspective....

it was 2003...snwmf was still in frogtown..angels camp...

I was making my way up the hill from watching midnite band play and ran into this youth bumping the VI artist 'Heartless' on a little boombox. Well the artist 'Heartless' is know known as de apostle...and the youth playing the boombox at the top of the hill was Nick Negas...
he was excited to meet someone from VI who could speak to all the rising talents...
I put him in touch w/ nuff artist and djs and before the year was out he was living in st. croix, doing the works...re-releasing Sabbattical order's original album and then going on to link with everyone and everyone and releasing those BOOM mixes.

resssspect.

Niceness! I have been playing the St. Croix cd since waaaay back. Such good vibes from start to finish. The tuffest track on the album is #3 Empress ? "worry no more"

Isn't dj Gov. Lee from the Dynasty crew (Bainbridge)??

Big respect for re-upping a dis one, download if you don't have it NOW!!

Respect SpliffP!! Heres some background on Governor Lee.. Yes Bainbridge Island crew, part of the Dynasty family and as of this year officially part of Blessed Coast Sound but the link goes back over a decade..

"Recently added to Blessed Coast Sound, Governor Lee met Ryan-I in 2001 in Seattle. After traveling to St. Croix & Miami over a period of a decade he returned to the North West with an East Coast flavor that brought some new hype to the sound. He released “St Croix Massive,” the first %100 St. Croix mix CD that is still a favorite amongst Blessed Coast Family. With experience not only in music, he adds an element of Film, Photography & engineering that has brought Blessed Coast Sound to another level."

i ran this mix(the stx mix) while working out today.. it definetly put some inspiration in my steps today.. i would also add, as with zana, that my life has been made better from this mix..

the trini cd is equally as nice.. just that the stx mix hit me somewhat hard today..

Randomguy2u- I believe the song you were referring to is "been away" by Yah Shiloh I on the St. Croix Massive mix track #4. Hope that helps, that track is also featured on Culturelennium 1 , check out viroots.com for more info

Bless!
