Since 2002, New Sheriff has been delivering the finest of fine and fittest of fit foundation sounds of Jamaica available on vinyl.
With 25 years of collecting and more than a decade immersed in the business of Jamaican music, New Sheriff brings a deep knowledge of the history of Jamaican music from Studio One and Treasure Isle in the 60s to the digital takeover of the late 80s.
First exposed to the sounds of Jamaica working at RAS Records in Washington in the early 90s, New Sheriff spent most of that decade traveling the world as tour manager with Israel Vibration and the Roots Radics Band. Sharing stages with all the top international bands from Jamaica, England, and Europe, and buying records. In 2000, he moved to Miami to work with the producer Joe Gibbs for two years and continued to build his knowledge of the history of Jamaican music and grow his sound with more than a dozen trips to Kingston.
Working often in conjunction with long time sound partner, Freddy Selector, New Sheriff has shared the stage with many of Miami’s top alternative DJs and bands, playing vinyl records in every type of venue from South Beach poolsides to Wynwood yards to Rasta villages.
From early roots to rockers, deep dub, rub-a-dub and early Dancehall, New Sheriff brings the heavyweight sounds of Jamaica curated from his personal collection of over 6000 pieces. All vinyl. All ways.
You can currently catch New Sheriff hosting Roots Meltdown in his Dania Beach backyard and booking gigs in New England for Summer 2021.
