The NYC dancehall legend and Massive B boss links up with Max Glazer and reasons about the NYC reggae scene.
Bobby Konders is one of the most respected and well-known DJs in the New York City reggae and dancehall scenes. By the time he formed his Massive B soundsystem, with his partner Jabba in the early ’90s, he had already established himself as a dance music innovator, juggling dancehall, house, hip-hop, reggae and disco with ease. These days, Massive B represents New York City at home and around the world: He’s at the Shutdown party on Labor Day, the Fire Sundays radio show on Hot97, and even on the digital plane, with the Massive B soundsystem radio station on Grand Theft Auto IV. On this week’s episode of the Federation Sound, Bobby sits down to talk shop with host Max Glazer, and drops the scoop on the first volume of his new compilation series Massive B Legacy, featuring classic Konders productions such as Bounty Killer’s “Suicide or Murder” as well as a brand-new joint with Vybz Kartel.
