"Keeper Of The Faith" is a 100% roots-conscious Reggae album in the works... Seems it will take a long while to find the right songs by worthy artists for this project...

Top cat (NYC)Fantra Zine page

TOP CAT of Brooklyn - New York City is a veteran Dancehall Reggae artist who recorded for labels including 4th & Broadway/Island and MCA/Universal Records in the 1990's during the era of the Shabba Ranks and Maxi Priest run as the alpha artists.





Top Cat as special guest of Dubb Agents performing at The Spot Underground, Providence, Rhode Island, USA, April 2, 2016. Thanks to Godbrother Rich for the footage.

Top Cat (NYC) and Lydia Rhodes 'Unitize' MCA-Records release in early 1990's. The original Top Cat from Brooklyn - NYC should not be confused with UK's Top Cat. Man there is always gonna be isms about artists taking the same name of other artists who have established a specific handle, identity and brand. (Searches should be done before deciding on a performance name. There is no excuse for assuming the name of another artist today. Just Google!) The original Top Cat from Brooklyn, New York City wants folks to be clear on identifying the two Top Cats.

Original Top Cat from Brooklyn - NYC recorded a song for MCA in 1991 and UK TC was being credited for it on Discogs and other sites. But that is cleared up. Original Top Cat said -- "I actually have two songs on two major labels including 4th & Broadway/Island (and MCA as mentioned) as Top Cat and had the name before Top Cat in UK. I also had a dancehall release on Charms in the UK, which was on Side A of 'Down In Jamaica' single recorded by Red Fox and Naturalie produced by Phillip Smart (R.I.P) and Peter McKensie." The original Top Cat (NYC) and Ras Shiloh have a sound great system called Jahfingers Sound. Click MCA label above for 'Unitize' release with Top Cat and Lydia Rhodes on YouTube.

BTW: As the General Manager, Renee (of The Spot Undergound)Top Cat and Dubb Agents with Top Cat "killed it" at The Spot Underground, in Providence - Rhode Island, April 2, 2016. Awesome! And we can't forget the gig February 20, 2016 at D.I.A's Global Rock Showcase at Don Pedro in East Williamsburg, Brooklyn - NYC, where Top Cat performed like he was in a trance. Shouts to Milo Henry, Ben Spankybiggs Harry and Paul Hawker who nice-up the MIC as well. Dubb Agents played like they were on fire.

Dubb Agents Global Rock sound.DUBB AGENTS: In the tradition of Soul Vendors being the house band for Clement "Sir Coxone" Dodd's Studio One label -- Dubb Agents is basically the house band for D.I.A (Diverse Intensified Audio). The Dubb Agents is a "force of diverse sounds" -- punk, ska, reggae, dubb, funk, hardcore, alt. hiphop, alt. rock, etc. Components are in place with some super-cool musicians with great attitudes who naturally hit hard without trying. BigUps to HR (Human Rights) who helped give life to the Dubb Agents to stand on its own and step to the front from the backing role. That will never and cannot be disputed. Nuff (a lot of) respect and thanks Joe! BigUPs to Eek A Mouse (aka Ripton Hylton) who helped and inspired. Bandingly!!! BigUps to Skitch Lovett (R.I.P), Vinny and Joe Corbin, Monk Washington, David Cornejo, Mark Lyn aka Que, Lu Bmob, Steven Repka, Hektor Bee, Chris DeRosa, Agent Jay, Pablo Fiasco, Grant Garretson, Jason Browning and Jerry Barrett who have gigged with Dubb Agents backing especially H.R (aka Human Rights). That cannot be disputed either. Artists backed by Dubb (Dub) Agents starting in 2002: Sister Nancy, Aunt Esther, Sister Charmaine, King D'Jango, Ed Robinson, Junior Demus, H.R of Bad Brains, Jack Ruby, Jr. (aka (Anthony Lindo) formerly of The Toasters and Jazzhole,Dubb Agents related NYC - Brooklyn Street postering. Jamalski (Jamal A Mitchell) , original Top Cat (aka Jahfingers Sounds Kenny), etc... See some flyer art and some of the venues infiltrated at this link.. Dubb Agents will continue to back and feature certain artists as special guests...

Like it or not -- it does not matter which Dubb Agents crew it is -- Monk Washington, David Cornejo Alegre, Que as Mark Lyn or Hektor Bee, Lu Bmob and Steven Repka, the Dubb Agents HIT VERY HARD even when they are playing soft. For Dubb Agents last gig at Don Pedro in East Williamsburg NYC, February 20, 2016, Steven Repka (vocals and guitar), Lu Bmob (vocals and bass) and Hektor Bee (drums) played 2 killer sets totaling about 4.5 hours of playing time. While backing Top Cat's segment even the bartenders and security left their posts to watch Dubb Agents play. This is what talent buyers, booking agents and venue owners love. A band played with the locked-in energy Dubb Agents showcased at Don Pedro is the type of band managers love to deliver to clients and roll down the road with. Awesome!

It is humbly Global Rock man: "...It is about Rhythm, Culture, Respect and Total Inclusion for most parts. There is no Race, Class, Age or Gender. People are just people..."

BigUPs to Dubb Agents (team 2) featuring Steven Repka, Mysta Lu and Hektor bee for backing Jamalski and Top Cat at Bowery Electric, New York City, December 18, 2016.
