"There is something about jungle, ragga vocalists and MCs, and the spirit of Jamaica that attracts me to this culture and music. When I listen to a song that speaks of suffering and suppression in a government of corruption and greed, I feel the pain in the voice. I sense the genuine nature of the stories and emotions."

I have been DJing on since January 2007 spinning mostly a selection of old skool and ragga jungle tunes. Since my show began, I have been very proud to play this style; there are very few DJs who explore beyond the preferred "subverted" sound of I will not deny that it has been tough trying to fit in, but I am more than up to the challenge. I have the normal chatroom hecklers (you know who you are) to thank for keeping me on my toes and pushing me to always improve. I also must thank the DJs, crewmembers, and listeners for being open to something different. It has been a pleasure steadily becoming more and more involved with the station; I look forward to a new year as a DJ and crewmember.

This mix features many of my original jungle influences, including Congo Natty and Ganja Records. That old skool sound is what lured me into ragga, and the majority of this mix reflects my dedication to it. However, the last portion of the mix shows respect to the producers who are keeping ragga jungle alive today. Ragga jungle has evolved greatly since its inception in the early 90s, but even after changing so much, its message is still intact: There is always a battle to be fought. With that said, I would like to dub this mix "Eternal Clash".
