We mark night 3 of Victoria's 23rd Annual Ska & Reggae Festival by celebrating the cross-generational appeal and power of reggae music KING YELLOWMAN & K'REEMA and PRESSURE BUSSPIPE. There are few dancehall deejays as renowned and legendary as the mighty KING YELLOWMAN and Victoria Ska & Reggae Festival is beyond excited to welcome the icon back. Side by side with his
incredibly talented and captivating daughter K'REEMA, festival goers can expect a truly unforgettable performance that highlights the best of dancehall and reggae, with splashes of modern R&B and soul dripping through their performance. An albino who was abandoned as a youth and shunned by parts of the reggae community as he grew up, King Yellowman has persisted through it all and remains a shining
example of the power of reggae and continues to spread a message of peace, love and unity for all people regardless of colour, race, sexual orientation or identity.

We are extremely proud to welcome world-renowned reggae artist PRESSURE BUSSPIPE to Victoria (And to BC as a whole!) for the very first time on Friday, June 24 at the Victoria Curling Club where he'll be sharing the bill with the iconic King Yellowman & K'reema. Pressure has been one of the most exciting voices in reggae since the 2005 release of his heralded debut album “The Pressure Is On.” Many of his singles – most notably his 2007 mega-hit “Love and Affection” - have become staples of reggae lovers around the globe. He is undoubtedly one of modern reggae's greatest ambassadors, singing powerful songs of love and struggle, spreading the gospel of real reggae music wherever he goes. Pressure Busspipe is truly a man in demand and has collabroated with some of the biggest names in reggae and
hip-hop like Damian and Stephen Marley, Proteje, Redman, Kabaka Pyramid, and Jah9 to name but a few. He'll be coming to Victoria Ska & Reggae Fest backed with his band for what is sure to be one of the most powerful and exciting performances the city is going to see this summer.

Keeping our feet moving between sets for our reggae celebration is the powerhouse DJ combo of DJ KEMO & DJ AREMS. Expect the finest in reggae, dancehall, hip-hop and everything in between when these two get behind the wheels of steel. Guaranteed wall-to-wall freshness from opening to closing on this Friday night reggae party.

    Dancehall Reggae

    King Yellowman

    King Yellowman has an incredible history in Reggae music. His upbringing at the Maxfield Home
    orphanage in Kingston and being albino in Jamaica were two obstacles the he overcame and went on to be
    (at one time) the biggest reggae artist since Bob Marley.
    After winning a talent contest at Tastee Patties in Kingston, Yellow went on to excite reggae crowds all
    over Jamaica and the rest of the world with his boastful and sometimes bodacious lyrics. His ability to
    ride rhythm and excite a crowd made Yellow an instant hit in Jamaica. He also began to work with the
    Ace Sound System in St. Thomas and drew big crowds at his dancehall performances. Later in his career,
    Yellow began to spread out and work for a number of different producers, sometimes releasing as many as
    five albums per year. This led to a recording contract with CBS Records. Yellowman recorded one album
    with them before he was diagnosed with jaw cancer and was given six months to live. This was in 1986.
    After surgery an extended leave of absence from the record industry, Yellowman began his comeback
    with the song "Blueberry Hill", and his career was re-launched. His first album for RAS came from
    producer Phillip 'Fatis' Burrell and was called "Yellow Like Cheese". Coincidentally this was the start of a
    long and fruitful relationship with RAS and Yellowman and also RAS and 'Fatis' and his exterminator
    production.

    Yellowman has always been very professional to work with and always a respectful and
    reliable human being. He has managed to outlive his predicted fate of death and his performances are
    incredibly lively as he seems to have an unlimited amount of stage energy. We can only hope for the best
    for Yellowman. He has continued his hard work and his devotion to his family is to be complimented.
    The rudest Dancehall toaster of the 1980s, Jamaica's albino son Yellowman made as many enemies as
    fans with his controversial, often overtly sexist (if tongue in cheek) lyrics. Now back on the Ragga scene,
    singing at a slightly slower pace, Yellowman's witticisms are as cheeky, spirited and intelligent as ever,
    and delivered with his customary sharp, melodic style.

    K'reema
    K’reema is one of the fresh new melodic voices on the international music scene. She is a very powerful
    vocalist ,a creative songwriter and producer. After quitting her 9-5 job as an EMT New York based singer/
    songwriter K'reema has been taking the music scene by storm. With her sultry fusion of pop/r&b sound to
    her hard core reggae roots K’reema continues to leave her fans mesmerized and captivated with her power
    vocals and performance.
    Born in Kingston, Jamaica, K’reema has been surrounded by music all her life. Being the daughter of one
    of Jamaica’s most revered Dancehall stars, the legendary King Yellowman, she was born in it! She is also
    the niece of the “Revelations” fame, Reggae singer Abijah, and her late maternal grandfather, Winston
    Smith, is also a founding drummer in the legendary The Mystic Revelation of Rastafari. Music is literally
    in her blood.
    From a very young age, it was evident that K’reema was destined for greatness. While growing up she
    would parade around the house singing the songs of her favorite singers, often mimicking her idols, such
    as the late Whitney Houston. Her family and friends were always impressed with K’reema’s ability to
    showcase her talent at such a young age.

    K’reema began writing poetry at the age of nine. By the time she was 11 years old, she began writing
    songs, the first titled ‘One More Chance’. In the ensuing years, she pursued her music career by
    performing in local talent shows, including the famous Tastee’s Talent Show, which happened to be the
    very same show that catapulted her father to his fame.

    Since then K’reema continue on to tour in the US, Japan , Europe and most recently the UK. K’reema
    didn’t stop there as she continues to carve her name in the music industry by being one of the first female
    artist to own her own label titled Yellow Baby. No surprise there this name was inspired by one of her
    father’s hit songs. After creating this family label her first line of action was to release her father King
    Yellowman first album in over 15 years.

    K’reema later released music of her own as well as her recently-launched line of apparel branded
    ‘zunguzunguguzunguzeng’, a phrase made popular by her father Yellowman. The apparel was launched to
    continue and refresh her father’s legacy.

  • Pressure Busspipe

    Pressure Busspipe

    Reggae

    Blessed with a smooth, melodic voice and an impressive innate writing ability that captures a story like no
    other, Pressure Busspipe is poised to dominate reggae audiences throughout the world. Called “Pressure”
    by virtue of the hard times and daily struggle we all face, Pressure is an artist dedicated to consistently
    delivering conscious messages to teach and unite the masses, through his musical talents. Born Delyno
    Brown on August 5, 1981, Pressure was introduced to music at a very young age by his father, who was a
    member of a popular local band in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands. Pressure first rose to popularity in the
    Virgin Islands and in regional and national reggae circles as a member of the Star Lion Family reggae
    group, made up of seven local artists. The group was in high demand and opened for established reggae
    artists such as Capleton, Buju Banton, Bunny Wailer, and Junior Reid, to name a few. Following
    placement of his single “Love and Affection” on the 2007 Reggae Gold compilation, Pressure released his
    Love and Affection album in 2007 on Don Corleon Records. Since then he’s released numerous singles
    and records, such as The Sound, which was produced by Zion I Kings. He first appeared on an Easy Star
    Records release guesting with New Kingston and now voices an amazing lovers rock track on the Star
    Chile EP. Wherever he goes Pressure Busspipe carries the torch of real reggae with passion, spreading the
    culture far and wide as he sings his songs of love and struggle.
