Prismatic and airy outdoor venues, which ranged from the beach to cavernous rooms carved into limestone cliffs, vibrated with rhythm of international music acts and native talent alike. The inaugural Tmrw.Tday festival welcomed Protoje & The Indiggnation, a surprise performance by the legendary Lee Scratch Perry, Teflon Zinc Fence & Yaadcore and the entire Crew Love squad touched down for an epic Sunday Irie Soul Beach takeover featuring extended sets from David Marston, Nick Monaco, and Wolf + Lamb. The magical weekend reached peak vibes Sunday night with Chris Blackwell hosting a very special edition of the Dub Cave with Gabre Selassie at the Caves, his stunning hotel in Negril.

Vice Noisy: This Is What Fyre Festival Could Have Been If It Wasn’t Such a Disaster

12.09.2017

Tmrw.Tday is a new festival in Jamaica, but with more focus on the vibes.

Fyre Festival and its tale of myriad problems has been recounted so often it’s practically already folklore. To briefly recap: the “once-in-a-lifetime” April 2017 event spectacularly collapsed as airlines grounded and cancelled flights, headline acts pulled out and luxury necessities resembled little more than emergency relief supplies. A dazzling shitshow of our time.

In retrospect, Fyre Festival was doomed to collapse head over arse into the balmy waters of the Exumas. But what if it went ahead? A new festival called Tmrw.Tday, taking place in Jamaica a few weeks later, lightly mirrors what Ja Rule and his 25-year-old business partner could have achieved if their shit had been together. At least that’s how it comes across in the festival’s marketing, anyway.

Billboard: Dub Music A History of Jamaica’s Criminally Under Appreciated Musical Art form

By Patricia Meschino – Billboard Magazine 

On a balmy late May evening under the stars at Chris Blackwell’s stunning cliffside hotel The Caves in Negril, Jamaica, legendary producer Lee “Scratch” Perry strolls up to the DJ booth and takes the microphone.

For the next 45 minutes Scratch, now 81, his hair and beard dyed cherry-red, freestyles lyrics as DJ (or selector, in Jamaican parlance). Kingston Dub Club owner Gabre Selassie tweaks his mixing console’s controls, manipulating the riddim track, transforming the bass line into a recurring thunderous boom.

Forbes: A Tale Of Two Festivals. Success at Tmrw.Tday and Ongoing Angst at Exuma’s Fyre

12.09.2017

By: Brad Auerbach – Forbes Magazine

Two recent inaugural island festivals are a study in how to organize a successful gathering. The Tmrw.Tday festival in Jamaica’s Negril was a resounding success. A few weeks earlier, the Fyre festival in the Bahamas has left a wake of lawsuits.

Between the two festivals I spoke with Tmrw.Tday’s organizer Andrew Christoforou. I asked him the inevitable question, what about the blowback from the Fyre debacle in the Bahamas?

Guests and partners have been sending articles, and with our partners in the festival and concert business, some alarm bells have been raised. But our sales have not been not affected. In fact, the reports have galvanized us to review with a fine tooth comb all elements of security and logistics, all management meetings, bar services, regulations, client safety and protocol. On balance, it is a good thing, it brought us to take a harder look on everything.

Neutralize Your Vibes: EMR Shield Technology

EMR Shield

By Stacy Chang-Christoforou

We don’t necessarily realize, but we’re surrounded by waves of radioactive radiation 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.  Our wireless devices: laptops, cellphones, tablets, wifi, routers, bluetooth, etc. all use radioactive frequencies and emit electromagnetic radiation EMR a.k.a. “electrosmog”.  I first heard this term through a series of audio tapes that that talked about energy, our vibrations and the law of attraction. I had that ‘light bulb moment’ when they spoke about the fact that we Can and should neutralize our electronic devices to protect ourselves from EMR.

Just Do It: Nike Food Runners Hits Negril Culture Fest

Nike Food Runners

By Tmrw.Tday team

Ten years ago, it would have been hard to find a health-conscious chef remotely interested in fitness or a plant-based diet, let alone one who would get out of bed before noon to go for a run. So, it might be surprising for Toronto food fans checking out their favourite chefs’ Instagram feeds to see pictures of neon running shoes and kale smoothies instead of pork belly and head cheese, all collected under the hashtag #FoodRunners.

Echomatik Q&A: A chat with the unlikely duo

29.03.2017
Echomatik Q&A

By Andrea Delgado

“An unlikely sound from an unlikely duo from an unlikely place.”

Our Echomatik Q&A reveals an unlikely duo who create techno and house beats. Their sound is funky, deep, dark, acid, melodic and minimal. The duo offers the world a fresh combination of all of these sounds, carefully generated in their secret lab nestled high in the hills above Kingston, Jamaica. They like kick drums, reverb and funky vocals, but most of all they like it when people dance.

Tell us about your musical journey?
A complicated but similar journey for both of us. We’ve both been heavily involved in a variety of aspects of reggae and Caribbean music- production, management, DJing and performing, musicians, business, etc. in a variety of places- Miami, San Francisco, Montreal, Toronto and of course Jamaica.
