It's worth noting that the inclusion of "Hifi" and "Disco" in a sounds name can cause confusion as these were not always used and were even interchangeable on occasions. I'm not clear on how best we should deal with this from a listings point of view.

Confusing in what way do you mean? From a linking point of view?

I know it's a longtime after the initial comments
but I only joined 24 hours ago!

On the subject of a sound systems name;

Please let's keep their full names and try to keep up
in terms of accuracy.
The detail of how a sound system is managed is so important in regards to how they see/saw themselves +/or how the public see/saw them! ie

Prince Buster said that to call a sound 'HiFi'
would mean that the sound WASN'T particularly heavy.
The most famous UK sound to carry the 'HiFi' was/is
Fatman HiFi who never focused on being the heaviest
but on being the clearest.

Sounds like Wha Dat or Gemini who called themselves 'Disco'
who were rub-a-dub sounds but using the double 'discoteque'
turntable style popular with many of the Jamaican based sounds called themselves 'Disco' for a reason.

Java sound who started as 'Java' moved onto become
Java Hi-Power, which they were definately well known for
being a HEAVY sound then they chose to use the brilliant
name 'Java Nu-Clear Power'

Let's try to keep up with each sounds latest names
as I think it's an important bit of detail!

Sorry to make this comment so long winded

Thanks for that Kevin. You make valid points and add clarity to what I was trying to say. Its complicated as the sounds names did change as you say and that a "Hifi" or a "HiPower" could be used in a promoters flyer or in a magazine article /listing when it wasn't necessarily used by the sound itself. Still I agree that the best answer is to stick as much as possible with what the sounds called themselves - hopefully the additional stuff will come through with article on the aditional sounds... alot of these are short or non existant at the moment but will hopefully build over time.

Another thought - do people think it would be worth entering details of known sound tapes for sounds? No exactly reviews but details of where when etc. I'd guess this would give a much clearer idea of when sounds were operating, where they were playing and who they worked with.

Kevin; Good to see you on the wiki and thanks for the posts you've done so far. I do understand your point but I think it's a bit complicated for the same reasons Redman states. However I do think that mentioning something about this in the sound system page would be smart. Myself I've never heard about these things. I'd love to see a sub-header that explains as good as possible what the different names came to mean and a few sounds that carried those name such as HiFi, Hi-Power, Disco and so forth.

Redman;I've thought about that a lot and I definitely think it's worth of adding information on soundtapes as by just reading where and when they had sessions (and what artists where a part of those sessions) it gives insight to the sounds.

Nice website, i have been planning on doing a database of dances online, all known audio recordings of dances, just never got round to doing it but there is so much interest in recordings of old dances today with alot of collectors and info out there so would be a very good idea to document this information. I hope u do add this to the site.
It's nice for the users to be able to add and edit etc. this is what will make the site good and able to grow quickly. I hope the project is still ongoing, i see the last comment was in Sept.
Keep up the good work...

The project is definitely going. The comment-feature isn't used too much though. But this is a beta. We're working on the official version to launch soon and we're finally doing progress so hopefully we'll see it launched soon.

Greetings one and all ,its good to talk and share ideas`and pass on history,which is our story during this present generation.let me say this as a man who help create the way we listen to our sound system today.For these who can recall,i started comeing to dance hall in the early 8o`as a young teenage.growning up in wolverhampton our community strictly fron the carribean

michael Shaw said

let me finish off what i was saying that sound system is different from disco set,
sound system has more than two standing boxs which is placed around the dance hall which is intended to full up a club and dance halls thats why sound systems are clearer and heavyer than the normal disco.
Disco tek is the way which the european listen to thier music,which is different from us.

at redman, yeh i know soundtapes and steve well, another nice site. All the info floating round on these old dances really needs documenting, maybe you could add a link from each sound to all it's known audio recordings. Big job tho, but all the fans have this info anyway so why not put it to good use, i have tried to persuade some of the main collectors previously to do something constructive with their lists of audio recordings. It's important history which should be well preserved and deserves to be officially documented in a library or archive. This type of website is just the kind of thing i love to see, this acts as an official public record so i hope to see a list of audio recordings pop up somewhere, sometime, no doubt it will.....
