Those paying attention may have noticed some changes going on... anyway, since the beginning of November we can officially say that we have expanded and modified our operations in the reggae business!
With Wayne now in London the sound system has morphed into something of a collective - as such still expect to find Argonaut Sounds selectas creating the vibe at venues (but now in both Glasgow AND London!), and our label will be based over both cities, and further afield, too. Sometimes a change is as good as a holiday, and this is gonna be an exciting new era!
More details to follow on gigs etc, but keep up to date by following us here, on facebook and a variety of other social media platforms.
Since February 2001 we have been privileged to host our Argonaut Sounds Radio Show on Subcity - and this Wednesday 14th October 2015 we present our final episode!
Expect two hours of the finest reggae music in all forms and varieties, some of the biggest tunes from the last few years, and others which have been favourites on the show since the days of just four episodes a year on FM. We’ll have as many of the crew in the studio as possible to bring the vibes, and we’ll probably reminisce over some of our “finest” moments. It’s gonna be fast and furious, ruff n’ tuff, and lawd a’ mercy, it may well run over.
So – for the final time – on air live Wednesday 8-10pm Subcity Radio, or listen back anytime…
Tonight sees the FINAL Dutchy Pot session at The 78 Cafe Bar!!!
Not far short of 4 and half years since it began, it’s gonna end in style… roots, dancehall, rub-a-dub and conscious vibes, and all the best tracks to have mashed up the place over the piece, inna strictly vinyl stylee!
Get down, fill yuh belly, buy out the bar, and get yuh dancin’ shoes on – we’ll be firing up the sound at 8pm sharp and it’ll be ruff an’ tuff from the start.
Big up all the reggae family in Glasgow who have made Thursdays such a pleasure!
Argonaut Sounds run t’ings fi years!

Big up everyone who supported us through to the runners-up spot in the soundclash last night, and big up all nine crews involved - nuff respect to winners P45.
Apologies for all the technical troubles at the event, although they were nothing to do with us! As much as we were happy to take part and pleased to represent Glasgow in the final, we can't hide our disappointment at how the whole event was run.
One thing we're not sure about… yuh can spend all yuh money on dubplates, but how can yuh be in a SOUNDclash if yuh nuh have a sound?
