But thanks to dancehall reggae’s vibrant cassette-tape circuit, buoyed by live dancehall sessions and soundclashes between famous sound systems like Stone Love, Bass Odyssey, and Killamanjaro, he knew where to go.

    ABoston Universitygrad student was ordered to pay four record labels $675,000 Friday for illegally downloading and sharing songs on the Internet – but he’s not singing the blues.

    “I’m disappointed, but I’m thankful it wasn’t millions,” saidJoel Tenenbaum, a 25-year-old doctoral student in physics. “To me it sends a message of ‘We considered your side with some legitimacy.'”

    If the verdict stands after a planned appeal, Tenenbaum said he’ll file for bankruptcy to cut his losses.

    The Official After Party for the Summerstage Reggae Bash
    with Liondub (halcyon / Liondub International)
    Come chill with the artists from the summerstage concert on the back deck at Porch and enjoy some serious reggae pressure provided proper, on wax, by halcyon’s own selectah general, Liondub!

    About LionDub [Liondub, Konkrete Jungle, Breakbeat Science]
    Music is often referred to as a universal language, however there are many dialects of music and few artists are able to express themselves through more than one.” Liondub is one exception and has “carved out a reputation as one of the top selectors in New York City” by steadily djing reggae dancehall, hip-hop, jungle/drum & bass since ‘91.

    Liondub has toured with, opened for, and worked in the studio to create an extensive catalog of original music and dubplates with the likes of Damian Marley, Buju Banton, Luciano, Lutan Fyah, Johnny Osbourne, Terry Ganzie, DJ Krush, ?uestlove, Smith and Mighty, Bassnectar, and Aquasky. Recent performances include opening sets alongside Steel Pulse, Sizzla, Israel Vibration, Marcus Visionary, Dj Dara, Dj Hype and Max Glazer. Liondub, a Konkrete Jungle resident of 5 years and the 3rd member of the late Chopstick Dubplate crew, brings roots reggae and current dancehall heat combined with jungle anthems, dubplate specials and exclusive dubwise re-mixes from top producers throughout the world.

    His performances are soulful and served with precise turntablism. His productions have been called “killer roots dnb burners” by xlr8r magazine and his remix of “NY Runs Red” by Richie Spice has been charted by stateside radio hosts and cained by dj’s worldwide. It’s for these reasons that “Liondub is capable of making the most discerning reggae and jump up crowds whistle and move.
