TRIBUTE TO HORACE PINNOCK AKA DJ VILLAGE
This audio is a tribute to the late great Horrace Pinnock aka DJ Village who was one of Londons Hottest rising Dancehall Deejays/Selectors back in the mid 1990s into the early noughties. The 24 year old hosted a regular Dancehall show on the Cruze FM and Skyline Community Radio in North West London, and occasionally stood in for the renown DJ Chris Goldfinger on BBC Radio 1 . I was fortunate enough to take in Dj Village live when he played alongside two giants from Jamaica, Jamrock and Bass odyssey in North West London, and what a great experience it was. On Novemeber 20th 2001, DJ Village alongside Elephant Man were robbed at gun point of thousands of pounds in the car park of the Plaza Hotel in London. DJ Village, Elephant Man and a male friend went into the hotel where Elephant Man is believed to have been staying, and reported the robbery to staff. Several hours later, the three men again found themselves in a dispute, this time with a group of between six and 10 men who met them in the lobby of the hotel. The altercation that followed spilt outside the hotel and DJ Village was shot with a single bullet. He was taken to the nearest hospital where he was pronounced dead.
