The legendary producer and DJ reflects on his life and career in a special 2-hour interview session with host Max Glazer.

Since he left home at 16 years old, Shaun “Sting International” Pizzonia knew he wanted to play and make music. Over the next four decades, he would go on to become one of the more influential figures in New York City dancehall, work with luminaries such as Red Fox, Beres Hammond, and Sting (the other one), and achieve worldwide crossover success producing records for Shaggy (“Angel,” “It Wasn’t Me”). For this very special episode of The Federation Sound, host Max Glazer throws out the playbook and sits down with Mr. International for a rare, sprawling 2-hour conversation that spans his life and career, from those early days bringing dancehall and reggae to Manhattan clubs with extended sets at The Underground to selling millions of records and continuing to push reggae music forward on the world stage. You won’t want to miss this.
