DSR Underground is an official media arm of Downsound Records which was initiated by Tenneille Baxter, a loyal employee of DSR who constantly collected behind-the-scenes material for the company. This material included everything from artists and engineers in the DSR studio to the street scenes captured as the company went on excursions across the Jamaica and indeed the world.
Wherever DSR and its artists were shooting a video, performing or cutting new tracks, there too was Tenneille, recording everything and publishing it almost immediately on his own independent networks.
After Tenneille’s passing in 2012, it was decided that DSR Underground should continue as an official media channel of DSR as it followed the company’s long tradition of compiling and publishing material from the streets in its most raw form.
DSR Underground is now administered by DSR videographer Mark One Syndicate.
Although DSR Underground is a department of Downsound Records, the channel operates independently and uncensored with the understanding that the street has its own voice which DSR has always presented as part of its ongoing contribution to the musical culture of Jamaica.
The official DSR Underground channels are:
