Even with a busy summer of festivals and whatnot ahead, we're still gonna find time to squeeze in a couple of sound system sessions at our home venue, The Poetry Club.
The first session will be on Friday 11th July when we are delighted to announce our special guest will be Jah Screechy, one of the finest MCs in the UK, famous for his barnstorming version on the Answer riddim "Walk and Skank".
More info is available on our events page.
The second session later in the summer will be on Friday 29th August - more details to come on that one.
Out now - our new release on Argonaut Sounds Productions, the Outta Hand Riddim, with four tracks over two limited edition 7"s and digital download:
#ASP002: Tenna Star "Hold The Faith" / Argonaut Sounds "Outta Hand Riddim"
#ASP003: Babascum "Give A Damn Bout Dem" / Slycer Trees & BJ "The Right Thing"
Both the vinyls and downloads are available from our Online Store, as well as all the usual contenders (Scotch Bonnet, Rastavibes, Dub Store, iTunes, Amazon, and many more)...
Big up everyone who made it down to the Poetry Club last night, and big ups and nuff respect to Macka B - what a session!
Thanks also to The Poetry Club - what a great atmosphere - and our door staff - Mhairi and Frederic on the box office, and Barney on the door.
We return on Saturday 15th March.
We're delighted to announce our second release on label Argonaut Sounds Production - the Outta Hand Riddim, featuring vocal cuts by Tenna Star, Babascum, and Slycer Trees & BJ, available on two limited edition 7" vinyls and digital download from 3rd March 2014.
There's more info to follow, but in the meantime check out the promo mix on soundcloud or youtube.
After a long break since our last sound system session at Blackfriars, we're delighted to announce that we've found a new venue, The Poetry Club, and that our first dance there will take place on Saturday 15th February 2014, with special guest Macka B!
Macka B is truly a legend of reggae music, both in the UK and further afield, with a string of classic records to his name working with Ariwa, and performing all over the world, including appearances at Reggae Sunsplash and Rebel Salute in Jamaica. His last album "Change The World", released in 2012, was one of our favourite albums of the year. We're delighted to welcome him to our sound system for a proper session, particularly after his short cameo at Blackfriars in November 2011.
The Poetry Club will we hope provide the base for our sound system nights over the next while - its a great venue, located next to the SWG3 complex on Eastvale Place. Capacity is limited - which should make for a great atmosphere - and entry will only be £5 as usual, so get down early as tickets will not be sold in advance.
