Desmond Campbell

Black Rock Sound

Announcer & Disc Jockey

Musical Influences: Too many too mention.
Why: Because music conceived and gave birth to me.

Desmond "Black Rock" Campbell was born on a small island in the Caribbean called Jamaica, in the parish of Kingston in the town of Trench Town. The family migrated to the United States in the winter of '75. Music was always a central part of Desmond's life, whether it was waking up to soul music blaring on the radio on Saturday mornings, or putting on dance shows with his uncle Mikey and his older brothers, skanking to dancehall music. Some years later, Desmond made the acquaintance of a lifelong friend who seemed to have been born with two turntables and a mixer. He was one of the best DJ's Desmond ever met even now 25 years later. Over the years they played several sounds together: F.E.C Sound, Prince Champion, King Champion, and Black Mirror. Desmond eventually thought about building his own sound system and now it has come to fruition. Black Rock sound was created with the belief that if you build a strong foundation it will last a lifetime and beyond. Black Rock is here and ready to step out into the lights once again.

Jove Gairy

DJ Sounds Good

Disc Jockey

Musical Influences: Starting from Scratch, Black Chiney, DJ Vibes, Stone Love
Why: Coming Soon!

J.V. Gairy aka Sounds Good has been following his passion for music since childhood. At age four, though he could barely reach the keys on the piano, it was discovered that he was in fact a musical child prodigy who could play anything from Chopin to Beethoven perfectly after hearing it only once. A trip to visit relatives in New York in 1985 swayed him from classical to more contemporary music and most importantly introduced him to turntablism. !

As a youngster, while other kids his age were sleeping, he was learning, staying up late listening to any DJ's he could find on the radio. Growing up, his radio dial was as schizophrenic as his musical tastes, from Modern Rock to Hip Hop to Soca, Reggae and more.

After teaching himself how to DJ and emulating his favorite DJ's, he became one himself and starting making mixtapes and performing while still in High School.

After being a part of several successful sound crews and collectives, he took his skills and became a favorite club and concert DJ in Toronto, playing alongside world famous DJ's like Starting from Scratch, DJ Vibes, Eric Ling, Black Chiney, Stone Love and Dr. Hyde. He has rocked crowds at home and internationally to much success and has also delved into internet radio as a way to connect with his fanbase.

J.V. continues to create and challenge himself as he works his way to his ultimate goal after being a child prodigy to a fully rounded man of music.
