Did any of you witness it? I think that has to be one cultural movement in NYC that's overlooked by historians.

Here are some sound systems I know of.

King Addies

Firgo Digitial

Earth Ruler

Spectrum

Yep sure did (screename hints at that) back in the days of Biltmore Ballroom, Club Legends, Club Callaloo, Caribbean City, Q Club, Act III, Amazura and on and on with the some of the same spots changing names over the years. Great times but also dangerous times as it was common for the bullets to fly both inside the dance and especially outside after the club let out...

Add Afrique SoundStation and LP International to that list of notable NYC Sound Systems

Man too much history, with lots of documentation. youtube could be your friend. there were too many soundsystems to mention, but some crews basically ran the cubs they played at. Nut who had the biggest SoundSystem? you will have to locate those neighborhoods full of Jamaicans. Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and I am not talking the projects. These were middle class folks with private homes, Taking it to their neighborhood park or schoolyard. Cops were not bothering anyone, as it was good clean fun. The OP should consider the late 70's instead.

for those that don't know, Carribean soundsystems existed since the late 60's all over the 5 boro's. Hip Hop followed their lead in almost every ways. Reggaeton is based on one dub plate, all songs have the same beat pattern. Another off spring of that Dancehall sound! Criminal Minded album,by the BDP crew, KRS one was completely based after the same principle and music. Even the car culture,trunk full of sub woofers , craving that wall of sound.

I was a fan, from the early 80's, telephone love with shabba ranks and shirley thunders Kuff , made me an instant fan. VP records , Jamaica queens. Darvin levy, rockers tv, bobby kondors with Massicve Sound . Give credit to DJ Red Alert for making the DanceHall Sound mainstream in NY!

the un matched sound of 8 to 12 bass bottoms thumping my chest in is most memorable. You can hear the music a mile away!
