DON MINOTT IS ON A MISSION ... OR SHOULD WE SAY REVOLUTION ....


2020 HAS SEEN A LOT OF TURMOIL.  A report early in the year announced that  "40% OF THE COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD ARE EXPERIENCING CIVIL UNREST"  and  it warns that the social dissorder will only get more intense. ( https://summit.news/2020/01/17/40-of-countries-in-the-world-to-experience-civil-unrest-in-2020/

Don Minott has picked up on this vibe and dropped a brand new track , a collaboration with DEEP FLO RECORDS that is running RED HOT  with the NATION. It is a call to action against injustice and hatred aptly entitled "REVOLUTION"  Here's DJ Fatta Icon dropping the track  ... follow the NEWS REEL LINK >>>

For years we here at SHYRICK DANCEHALL RADIO have said REGGAE is going to again play a paramount role in carrying the message of PEACE, UNITY AND HUMANITY across the world. As more and more distress grips this planet, more and more people are turning to  REGGAES VIBES to carry the voice of rationality and solution.

An article floating around the web backs up this sentiment : Why Bob Marley Music Sales Surged In Pandemic & Racial Unrest, ‘Legend’ Album Back At No. 1 

"...Many times in history, Bob Marleys songs are thematic to the uprising that we are currently witnessing. No matter the year, Marley’s music seems to have perpetual relevance, and even now, as we face these crucial times in the world, fighting for racial equality, his catalog, which champions for social justice has never been more entertained. "


We  asked Don Minott what his thoughts were regarding his personal experiences with these  issues.

DON MINOTT:  I support what's happening worldwide with civil unrest minus the violence and looting . There are people in this world who want to hurt others just because of the color of their skin. 

ALL DECENT LOVING PEOPLE MUST COME TOGETHER TO SPEAK OUT AGAINST THIS EVIL . RACISM CAN ONLY BE DEFEATED THROUGH THE EFFORTS OF BOTH BLACK and WHITE PEOPLE .



SHYRICK: Don what role or responsibility do you think the singers and musicians have in communications during civil unrest as we are currently witnessing?

DON MINOTT: Musicians/ Vocalists have an obligation to be the voice of the underprivileged , especially in this time of conflict. It's our job to point out the injustices , while at the same time making music that brings people together .  

As we all know, social unrest is only one of the serious situations 2020 has dished out to the entire globe, the other being the COVId-19  situation which has literally destroyed prospects for large venues, as well as popular outdoor concerts which ultimately is causing much distress to the musician and artist around the world as they scramble to adjust to a new way of doing business.

We asked  Don Monott how he is fairing  during these trying times.



DON MINOTT: On a personal level I've been lucky, so far I've not been infected by Covid19,  however 2 of my family members have recovered from it.
 
On a  music level, my last live audience was way back in February . I just did a virtual show with my Band on July 25 , 2020  however.

In the meantime I've been writing and doing a lot of Studio Recordings. Because music was never my primary source of income  financially I'm ok .       




SHYRICK: What are the recommendations you have for your fellow artists to mitigate the damages from this pandemic?

DON MINOTT:   I would suggest to my fellow Artists to find ways to stay relevant. for example do some virtual streaming and  promote new music .

My own label VOLTAGE SOUNDS is continuing to make good music even as we collaborate with other labels and producers worldwide.  




We did a bit of digging around  to see what may be out there that will offer some degree of support to  the music community, here's  a link to some resources offered. We are not overly sure how much of a help these will be, but we are sure there will be someone to listen and offer advice so if you are an artist wondering what to do, check it out ...>>> 

 
We have it on good authority via RIDDIM N NICE PRODUCTIONS that  a new BANGER is expected in the very near future from DON MINOTT, who will be sitting on a 4 track EP ridding the  UPFULL RIDDIM . Radio stations pleasse reach out to DON MINOTT for all of his recent releases and make sure to ask for this one coming very soon >>> Here's his FACEBOOK link :
