In this episode we’re talking to music marketing maven Chelsea Grant, she been in the music and entertainment industry for a few years now and recently joined Caribbean record label VP Records as a project manager working with album launches for Chris Martin, Busy Signal, Jah Cure and many more. We talk a lot about the consumption of music and trends that I thought it would be a great idea to talk more about the business side. While we get to learn about her journey, she gives some insightful gems about the state of the business side, the actual impact and value of reggae/dancehall and what artist can do to continue to grow in the business.   Support the Podcast   Stylin’ on: Signature Style & Vibes Sweatshirt Vibin’ to: Busy Signal “Parts of the Puzzle”   Stay connected to Style & Vibes Keep up here: Website | Newsletter | Shop Let’s talk here: Twitter | Instagram | Facebook   Executive Produced by Kerry-Ann Reid-Brown of Breadfruit Media

In this episode I’m connecting with my ladies of Sip n Chat, an online radio program hosted Kerry, Jendayi, Jo Wheeler and myself, produced by Ronnie Tomlison. We’re dissecting impact of Noise Abatement Act being re-enforced on the the Dancehall community, particularly in the country’s capital Kingston, cutting the end time of street Dancehall parties at 12am during the week and 2am on the weekends. Street dances are a significant part of Dancehall culture that happens starts at night and goes until sunrise the next day. As the government looks to enforce the law that was introduced in the late 1990s the, we evaluate the responses from the community, potential impact from a tourism perspective, the negative impact on the dancehall community (primarily DJs, selectors, dancers and vendors)  and discuss potential opportunities.
