• NEWS: POLICE SHUT DOWN SANTOS

    By Rob Harvilla – The Village Voice

    ?So cops shut down Santos Party House on three-month-old drug charges on the cusp of Halloween weekend; Santos management is, understandably, pissed off. Their official statement is below.

    Dear Friends,

    Yesterday was one for the books at Santos Party House. We had been working since the morning in preparation for the 20th anniversary celebration of the legendary record label Ninja Tune, in addition to the string of amazing Halloween events we had been working on for months. At around 9:15pm, the mounting excitement was crushed when the NYPD barged into the club and informed us that we were to cease operations until further notice. Needless to say, we were shocked.

  • NEWS: R.I.P. GREGORY ISAACS

    By Rob Kenner – NY Times

    Gregory Isaacs, reggae’s “Cool Ruler,” whose aching vocals and poignant lyrics about love and loss and ghetto life endeared him to fans of Caribbean music, died on Monday at his home in London. He was 60.

    The cause was lung cancer, said his wife, June Isaacs, who lives in Kingston, Jamaica.

    Cat Coore, the guitarist and cellist for the seminal reggae band Third World, has called Mr. Isaacs “the Frank Sinatra of Jamaica” for his elegant vocal phrasing. But as the singer’s friend and former manager Don Hewitt observed, “It goes further than that, because Sinatra was not a songwriter.”  [Read More]
