Popular sound system Area Code 876 has split into opposing camps following what one group is citing as 'irreconcilable differences" with selectors Too Sweet and DJ Kevin. "We want to disassociate ourselves with them. For some time, there had been numerous problems, accounting irregularities, and a general breakdown in discipline, respect and professionalism, so we decided to take action," Taj James, manager of Area Code 876, told 876 ent.
"The breakdown was caused from management's disapproval of members requesting a management change. As a result of rebelling, DJ Kevin and TooSweet decided to stick with the present management team, hence the decision of Fireblocks, DJ Geldon and Dj Dujon returning to the original management.It is to be noted that there is no hard feeling amongst the group."

A release was sent to the offices of reggaemusicfm which announced the split and reinforced the right of this splinter group to retain the use of the Area Code 876 name and trademark.

"We're not going to wrangle over the legality of using the name. The name was registered in the US and incorporated under a separate business name in Jamaica, but we want nothing to do with that Jamaican entity, but we're invoking our right to use the name," Mr. James said.

The release also requests that promoters use the group picture showing just the remaning four members (Fireblocks, DJ Geldon and DJ Dujon and Taj James).

"We are back on the Beach every Sunday alongside Flava Unit at Prendy's (Hellshire)! So look out for us!" Mr. James said.
