That’s right, your heard correctly! The Dancehall team at “Reeewind & Come Again” just got hotter with the fiery addition of top Dancehall DJ Admiral Bailey. The already strong Dancehall line-up, consisting of mainly 80’s hit recording artists, will be a force to be reckoned with on Saturday, April 30 at Amazura in Queens, New York.
“I have returned to ‘Reeewind’ this year because the concept and vibes are incredible……I like that ‘Reeewind’ takes you back to a time when Dancehall was nice,” says Admiral Bailey. “I am looking forward to the vibes and energy of the performers/sounds and most of all — the people dem.”
Admiral Bailey is an extremely talented artist with a slew of hit recordings under his belt. Much to his credit, the DJ can still maintain heavy vibes during his live performances. His career, which jump started with King Jammy’s, spans three decades. Admiral Bailey actually joined King Jammy’s at a time when new dancehall riddims were ruling the world. Over the years, “The Admiral” has delivered Dancehall-defining anthems like “Punany,” “Think Me Did Done,” “Kill Them With It,” “Gal You Body Good,” “Health Body,” and countless others. Actually, “Punany” set the standard for Dancehall music to follow, making Admiral Bailey a true Dancehall star.
“Having Admiral Bailey as a last minute addition to this year’s package truly adds to the excitement,” says Garfield “Chin” Bourne, event promoter and fan. “Admiral Bailey brings a competitive element to the mix…..when one says Admiral Bailey, you can’t help but think of his monstrous hits and over-the-top stage charisma.”
Admiral Bailey boasts the unique skill of performing his chart toppers on virtually any riddim — affording patrons with a special take/different effect of his hit music. The DJ’s catalogue is so thick that one never knows what’s coming next. There has been a huge buzz since Admiral Bailey’s debut at “Reeewind” in 2010. It’s a year later — and thousands of fans are still raving over Admiral Bailey’s performance — debating over whether “The Admiral” or Shabba Ranks stole the show.
Admiral Bailey’s performance on April 30 will mark the DJ’s official return to the New York Tri-State area since his flawless stint at “Reeewind” in 2010. The one and only Admiral Bailey is anxious to toast with members of the 80’s Dancehall fraternity and selector David Rodigan. Get ready for Admiral Bailey’s explosive return to “Reeewind.”
” I am absolutely delighted to hear that Admiral Bailey has joined the Dancehall team; let’s face it — Bailey is a true DJ master with the most hits,” says ace sound man David Rodigan. “So, hey New York, run come celebrate at Amazura next week Saturday!”
