Champion Sound - Dubbing Sun & Digid meets Clinton Sly - Review — 09/08/2014

Dubbing Sun, in collaboration with Digid, focus on the heavy vibes with their eponymous record label’s second 7″. The Austrian/Belgian collaboration brings a tight sense of production, from the prerequisite deep bass to the vintage horns to the smoothly layered dub effects. “Champion Sound,” with vocals from Clinton Sly – whose rough and tough style bounces around the echo chamber quite nicely – is a brash heavyweight selection. They not only ‘run every other sound around,’ but more importantly make clear: ‘and who no like it, well then them can just go.’

Real Good Gal Review

Review: There are occasions where a vocal simply isn't necessary; the instrumental original does all the damage you want it to. Then there's the less frequent case of vocal / instrumental smelting that's so natural and neat, you wonder why it hasn't happened sooner. "Real Good Gal" is definitely in the latter category. Originally released in 2012, Tzinas' "Jam Hot Riddim" (a dub version of Beats International), here we find it graced with Montreal's finest dancehall singer Clinton Sly and it's the perfect match. The remixes are equally stimulating; Maars adds emphasis to the beats, Cut La Vis adds a sense of electronic evangelism and Dark Able smashes out a jungle-juiced jump up D&B vibe. Real good vibes.

Clinton Sly on Dubstep EP, Entrudo by Karetus.

"The last song on the EP is ‘Wicked’ featuring Clinton Sly. Infusing Reggae with Drumstep, it’s an awesome way to end an album." http://salacioussound.com/2012/08/karetus-entrudo-ep-album-review/

Computer Music Magazine Issue 180: Hypnotized- Review

"We were instantly grabbed by Clinton Sly's wicked dancehall-style vocal performance. The lyrics paint attractive pictures, and there are plenty of memorable lines. The gliding sub-bass is a winner too - it helps to provide a sexy foundation in conjunction with the bouncy rhythm section. The overall structure really works, which is admirable because the bass hook runs throughout the song with very little variation.... Overall we really, really like it" http://soundcloud.com/clintonsly/hypnotized-clinton-sly-vs-dub

Newmusiccanada.ca Mention

"Montreal may not be well known for its reggae and dancehall scene, but Clinton Sly intends to change this. His dub mixes, distinct vocal delivery, and multiple collaborations make him a well known presence in the dancehall scene and nightlife. The new club-ready single “Wheel & Come Again” was produced by Blend Mishkin and includes the radio edit and instrumental track." http://www.newcanadianmusic.ca/releases/w/wheel-n-come-again-single/clinton-sly/2012-05-21
