When others slept, he sang, finding his voice in those early morning hours when most voices have fallen silent.

As a little boy, Don Carlos used to sing for his father.

He still remembers those late nights, recalls them with a warmth evocative of summertime in his native Jamaica, even though 60 years have passed.

“From the time I was like 3, my dad used to tell me, I used to go sing,” the 66-year-old Carlos says. “I remember when I was like 5, 7, I used to get up in the night and sing for my dad. My dad was a tailor. He used to make pants. He used to sew right through the night. I used to see him working and sing to him.

“When I started to sing, people would tell me, ‘Yeah, you’ve got a good voice,’ ” he continues. “They used to tell my mom, ‘That boy’s going to be a singer.’ The music was just given to me. I don’t know how I do it.”

Return to the Desert

Carlos will dig deep into that songbook of hits at the 18th edition of Reggae in the Desert, Vegas’ biggest annual celebration of Caribbean music, culture, art and food.

He’ll be joined on the bill by familiar faces in headliners Sly and Robbie, the well-traveled Jamaican rhythm section and production duo who worked with Black Uhuru on many albums. They’ll perform with Carlos’ fellow Black Uhuru veteran Mykal Rose.

The lineup also features roots reggae favorites Alborosie & The Shengen Clan, Yellowman, Jesse Royal and others.

The legitimate legal Cannabis market here in California continues to grow while "black market growers" continue to be harassed or busted. Where are these people going wrong? Are the regulations to be legitimate in California too high? 
Cops in Anza, California, raided over 100 illegal cannabis farms this Wednesday, the second major raid against black market weed growers to happen in the course of a week.

Police served 80 search warrants on illegal pot grow-ops within hours after a murder was reported on one of these farms. Cops reportedly showed up in full combat gear with rifles. They left the area with helicopters and trucks overflowing with tons of seized marijuana, which is now slated for destruction. Riverside County Sheriff Chad Bianco said that he had been planning these raids for months, and was hoping to shut down at least 200 illegal growers by the end of the day.

"With common cartels and gangs and grows that are protecting themselves from thieves, that comes with guns and gunfights and shootings and robberies," Bianco said to ABC 10News. "This isn't a victimless crime. This is not a pretty little plant that we're taking, someone's medicine, this is a quality-of-life issue that is destroying this valley.”

Residents of the Anza area have been growing weed there for years, and many of these farmers hoped to gain approval from local authorities to do so legally. Riverside County recently created a new regulatory framework for legal cannabis cultivation, but local farmers have complained to the county Board of Supervisors that the complex licensing process is too difficult for them to navigate.

The board has yet to approve any commercial grow permits, leaving many farmers to decide to flaunt the law and keep on growing without a license.
The county's Cannabis Regulation Task Force has been cracking down on these illegal grows since last fall. Six weeks ago, cops chose the celebrated stoner holiday of 4/20 to launch another raid against illegal farmers, seizing several tons of contraband cannabis

“We treated 4/20 a little different,” Bianco wrote on Facebook. “Yes, there is a new Sheriff in town.”

Commentary About Cannabis by Mitch Santell, Producer / Co-founder Big Reggae Mix

Each of us has our own story as to how we discovered Cannabis or how it discovered us.

The first time I tried Cannabis, I was 35 years old. It was an enjoyable experience, and to this day, I am now 61 years of age, I still use it daily.

There has been an enormous shift in our culture because of Cannabis.

There is still a massive divide between Cannabis users and non-Cannabis users. There is nothing that is still as misunderstood as the green herb.

What are your reasons for using Cannabis? I can tell you mine. Ready? 

First, back in 2016, I cracked two of my ribs, and I was able to put Cannabis Cream on my two cracked ribs, and within 2 minutes, the pain was non-existent.

Second, if you have concerns about Dementia or Alzheimer’s, a single “puff” each day might help. 


Look here:

Third, don’t sell yourself short by not looking into some of the new strains grown every day. Which medical patients do you think have received the single most significant benefit? 

Cancer patients.

No, I am not a medical professional. I am a street smart music and radio producer who is willing to take responsibility and accountability for my health. How about you?

This is a very important development within the Cannabis community.
When it comes right down to it, cannabis has tons of medicinal uses – and there are probably hundreds more that we are not even yet aware of because studies on the plant are so limited. However, this doesn’t stop many researchers from trying to learn all they can with the data that is available. Thanks to a specific group of researchers at the University of Colorado, we now know there could potentially be a link between cannabis use and an increased chance of surviving a heart attack.

“Perhaps the most striking finding of our study is that marijuana use prior to AMI was associated with decreased in-hospital mortality post AMI,” the study authors wrote.

Researchers used hospital records of patients who suffered heart-related emergencies or acute myocardial infarctions (AMI). The records went back as far as 1994 and spanned almost a decade through 2013 – and of the 1,273,897 patient records, 3,854 admitted to cannabis consumption. Chances are, the actual number of cannabis consumers was higher, but due to marijuana’s illegal status not everyone is as open with their doctor as they should be when it comes to their cannabis use.

Originally, those conducting the study hypothesized that cannabis users would suffer from more negative effects after being admitted to the hospital – but it turned out quite the opposite was true. They found that those who use cannabis were at a decreased risk of going into shock and were less likely to need certain artery surgeries. The study also found that cannabis users were at a decreased risk of dying from complications.

True Music Observations by Mitch Santell

There is nothing like the feeling of great Reggae Music and how it merely washes over you and brings a smile to your face. When I am inspired, I want to inspire others. The greatest inspiration of all? Music, yes I said yes!
Music takes us back to a formative time, to a younger potentate version of ourselves. Music reminds us of who we were, who we are, and who we still want to be. Music captures a zeitgeist, a moment-in-time, and in an instant we are transported – mind, body and soul – to that day on the beach, that night at the prom, or that afternoon cruising in the car, new license in hand, breeze in our hair and the radio blaring.

Music keeps us young. I was a teenager, hanging out in my bedroom, listing to the Beach Boys. “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” was on the record player. It was a steamy summer day. The windows were open. I could see my next-door neighbor, the very cool Jimmy Russo, hair slicked back, walking down the street. Strange as it sounds in these days of anything goes, but I still blush when I remember hearing the song’s lyrics for the first time.


The brain loves music. It heightens our intelligence. It makes neurons fire and neurotransmitters light up. As we revisit defining moments of life through music, the brain’s pleasure center is turned on, and we experience the warm glow of neural integration and hemispheric communication, supporting optimal mental health. In a scientific study looking at music’s impact on brain function, Canadian researchers discovered that music is actually part of the human survival instinct. Describing the experience of listening to music in terms like, it sent “shivers-downthe-spine” and feeling “chills,” researchers found that music facilitates biological changes in heart rate, respiration, and electrical impulses of muscles, and affects cerebral blood flow in brain regions thought to be involved in reward, motivation, emotion, and arousal. Music makes the brain come alive.

Today I found this article about One Love Cali Reggae Festival that starts this Friday, wow wow wow, check it out....
Easy vibes, good beats and a celebration of reggae culture starts off the year of music at the Queen Mary as it sails into the second year of its partnership with concert giant Goldenvoice.

The 2019 concert season at the ship begins with the return of the One Love Cali Reggae Fest, which expands to three days as it takes over the Queen Mary Events Park in Long Beach Feb. 8-10.

It’s the first of what’s expected to be several mini-festivals at the 15,000-person capacity venue this year produced by Goldenvoice, which announced a partnership with Urban Commons, the ship’s leaseholder, in late 2017 to put on more large-scale music festivals at the ship .

And they delivered by bringing several ew concerts and taking over some of the existing festivals in 2018 like One Love Cali Reggae Fest.

This year the reggae fest feature more than 50 bands performing throughout the weekend including well known headliners such as Rebelution, Slightly Stoopid and Sublime with Rome.

But with so many acts it would be easy to miss some of the artists that are either up-and-coming or have flown under the radar and may not be as well-known as the headliners.

So One Love co-promoter and talent buyer Jared Segawa shared his top picks via email for the bands beyond the headliners that you don’t want to miss at the three-day festival.

Reflections on the Festival Life by Mitch Santell

A Reggae Festival can be an absolute blast to attend. The Upcoming One Love California Reggae Festival just days away in Long Beach, California is no exception. You can be prepared, or you may end up after your first day feeling miserable, the choice is yours.

There are three major things you want to avoid when attending a music festival.

One ~ Bring water so you can hydrate.
Two ~ Bring Sun Screen.
​Three ~ Don't overpack.

Slightly Stupid, always in action!
The DNA of any band will rest not only with the music it creates, but it is also developed by who is in the group, how they came together and what legacy they want to leave behind. No band in my view in recent history has had such a rich back story.
