VP Celebrates Wax Poetics Magazine's Reggae Issue

(VP RECORDS, NEW YORK) - VP Records teams up with Wax Poetics Magazine to celebrate the launch of their reggae-oriented edition, Reggae Issue 43, available nationwide on Tuesday, September 21, 2010. The New York City celebration takes place at the Happy Ending Lounge on Thursday, September 23, and the Washington, D.C. soiree happens at Patty Boom Boom on Wednesday, September 29, 2010.

VP Records joins forces with Wax Poetics Magazine for their annual reggae release because it perfectly fits the label's 17 North Parade imprint, which was created to release oldies and specializes in foundation reggae music - the theme of this special reggae issue.

The NYC event will partner up with Deadly Dragon Sound's weekly Downtown Top Ranking party, and will be joined by VP Records' own Clive Chin and DJ Twice as the special guest DJs of Black Moses Sound, for this strictly foundation reggae event. This also kicks off Black Moses Sound's Asian tour, where they will spend three weeks in China and one week in Japan, spreading reggae music to the Far East.

Happy Ending is located at 302 Broome Street in New York, NY and doors open at 10pm. Patty Boom Boom is located at 1359 U Street NW, Washington, D.C., and doors open at 9pm. Both events are free and open to the public. Please direct all press inquiries to the VP Records Publicity Department - Rhona Fox at 718-425-1151 or
