XTM.Nation(formerly Xterminator Productions) has put together a specially thought out theme and line-up for the lovers of love and fans of live music.
Dubbed ‘The Resistance’, the live showcase will feature revolutionary sounds from Jesse Royal, Jah9 and Raging Fyah; three performers that have stamped their class on Jamaica’s present live music scene.
They will be joined by the experienced Sizzla Kalonji and with his original band, ‘The Firehouse Crew’.
Sizzla will be taking the audience back to his roots; his performance will be livicated (dedicated) to his former manager, producer, teacher and friend; Philip ‘Fatis’ Burrell.
Burrell who sadly passed on December 3, 2011, was a major hand in making Sizzla the household name he is today and held a very dear place in the hearts of the multitude of souls he influenced. ‘Guru’, as he was affectionately called by Sizzla, is responsible for producing hits such as ‘Praise Ye Jah,’ ‘Taking Over’ and ‘No Other Like Jah’.
Kalonji has been riding a high since his unforgettable performance at The National Arena recently, but this doesn’t mean he will outshine the relatively fresh: Raging Fyah, Jesse Royal and Jah9. Where these artistes lack in experience they make up in passion. They are all top graduates from the schools of Wickie Wackie and Jamnesia live scenes and have continued to master their craft for audiences from Poland to Zimbabwe. Driven by righteousness, these three performers compliment Sizzla perfectly.
No meal is complete without a little desert. To sweeten ‘The Resistance’ a little, ‘Xterminator’s Audio Angel’, Kayla Bliss was added to the line-up. Kayla captivated the ears of Fatis Burrell, and was working with him in the studio until his untimely passing.
‘The Resistance!’ will take place on Thursday, December 27, 2012 (showtime is 8pm)
at South Beach Café (Jamaica). The prices for presold tickets are $700, while it is $1200 at the gate. Presold tickets will be available at Shell (Manor Park), Texaco (Liguanea), Artique (Mall Plaza), I-Nation Books, Veggie Meals On Wheels, Advanced Couriers and Genus Pharmacy (Portmore).
