Pan Rebels Steel Orchestra - “Mind Yuh Business” - (‘Panyard’ version -
Len “Boogsie” Sharpe - Arranger
Brooklyn, New York, USA - A
“Boogsie” Sharpe-arrangement of his 1996 composition ‘Mind Yuh Business.’ This arrangement was captured by Basement Recordings in Pan Rebels’ panyard
- (behind what is today Kings Theater) - a few days before they take the stage for the 1996 New York Panorama competition.
Pan Rebels was young, fearless, immensely talented and
forward-thinking. Without doubt, Pan Rebels Steel
Orchestra was our
favorite group to record. We were all on the same page
in understanding how capturing and documenting the present
could play out in the future.
Thank you Anthony “Pra” Trebuse, Gary Rogers and Michelle
Williams for always having a parking space ready for
And a special thanks to Len “Boogsie” Sharpe for
believing in the youthful Pan Rebels, and giving us here at
Basement complete freedom, always telling us to “Go do your
thing” (record the steel orchestra).
