One of the most appreciated and unconventional dancehall group from Jamaica. We are talkin about the "mad family" WARD 21. Their last album "STILL DISTURBED" still having an huge global success with more than 60 live show across Europe and Usa from 2014 to 2015.

WILDCAT: Still Disturbed album had a great succes all around Europe. How did you get in touch with the european label Germaica Records?

KUNLEY: We met many years ago at King Jammy's studio. Afterwards we linked up a few times after he organized tours for the group. Then, we decided to work together after realizing the chemistry we had.

Ward 21 are well known as producers of  epic riddims like Cosa Nostra, Bellyas, Badda Badda and more. What's behind the making of a top riddim and what the kind of sounds you love?

The personal vibe of the musician is most important. That determines the sound of the product. We are very big on percussion sounds so thats what we mainly start wid... and also bass is very important for dancehall music.

Ward 21 started their career with the legendary King Jammys and now you featurin also with edm producers like Major Lazer. What you think about this new global trend to mix dancehall music with the electro dance?

Its fun. If the music sounds good, then mission accomplished.


It's almost impossible not to notice a new female presence during "Still Disturbed Euro Tour".


WILDCAT: Who is Marcy Chin and how she started her musical career?

MARCY CHIN: Marcy is driven and hungry, honest and always learning. Her musical journey started in school. Always the performer. Professionally she started out recording with 007 record label in Jamaica, but moved on to develop, grow and hone her skills, under the tutilege of Kunley McCarthy of Ward 21.

I had the chance to perform on your same stage during the "Still Disturbed Euro Tour". I was impressed about your versatility with the dj'ing and your rap flow. Wich female artists influenced you mostly?

Mostly Queen Patra, Nicki Minaj and believe it or not, miss Christina Aguilera.

Whats your impression about European and Italian scene? Any comparison with the caribbean musical scene?

My impression of the European scene is that there is a genuine appreciation of my roots and of talent overall. It's less about the hype and more about authenticity. The Caribbean scene is more about hype over talent. More about a quick hustle than longevity... Or perhaps, that's just Jamaica.
