Sister Nancy, aka Muma Nancy, real name Ophlin Russell-Myers, (born Ophlin Russell, 2 January 1962, Kingston, Jamaica) is a dancehall DJ and singer. She is known to the world as the first female dancehall DJ and was described as being a "dominating female voice for over two decades" on the dancehall scene. One of her most famous songs is "Bam Bam", labeled as a "well-known reggae anthem" by BBC and a "classic" by The Observer
In 2001, Canadian/American producer Krinjah re-mixed "Bam Bam", creating one of the most-sought after 12" vinyls and arguably kicking off the ragga-jungle revival in North America. In 2004, she collaborated with DJ /rupture and Kid 606 on the "Little More Oil" single, and in 2006, she collaborated with Thievery Corporation on their 2006 compilation Versions, on the track "Originality".
In 2006, Canadian producer RCola brought Sister Nancy into Liondub's studio to re-sing her classic "Bam Bam", eventually releasing his Drum and Bass dancefloor remix on 12" vinyl with Division One remix on the AA side. In 2007, Sister Nancy voiced a dubplate of her "Bam Bam" with new lyrics for Atlanta ragga/drum and bass dj Tester.
Moss Raxlen aka Mossman (Montreal, QB CA) - Dub Specialist makes his Indianapolis Debut. Moss has toured the world with the likes of Sister Nancy, Stranger Cole, and Marcia Griffiths. Hailing from Montreal, QB, Moss' is widely hailed as Canada's most in demand Roots Reggae Selectah.
