After debuting his exclusive recordings with Shinehead at Indigo’s this past First Friday, Vince of Positive Regime has proved once again that music from the heart always wins.

Ever since his days rocking KTUH airwaves in 1993, the anti Top 40 activist has stood by his beliefs and kept his creativity and soul for dope riddims intact. In typical music renegade fashion, never once has he wavered from his love for conscious music and remained true to the sound that speaks of clear truths to him.

Much more of a Selectah than a DJ, Vince, a leader of the downtempo and reggae sounds, has a striking self-awareness of the feel-good and stood out from the crowd because of it.

He currently heads Chinatown’s premiere pau hana happy hour with select old school, trip hop, downtempo blends and has his sights set on making impressions international. The driving force and signature message is clear.

Live positive, think positive, be positive. Positive Regime.
