posted on December 29th, 2013 by Patch

It's with great pleasure that we announce the lineup for the next chapter, and it's a very special one to start the new year. Three stars of the roots reggae scene on one sound system...

Kibir La Amlak

Local sound system, Kibir La Amlak, are one of the most popular sounds to come out of the UK in recent times. They have gained the respect of the many crowds they have reached and also their peers with their very spiritual approach and ear for perfection when it comes to sound. They have impressed not only in the dance but also with some great production, with some top quality releases on their own label and also for the likes of Saloman Heritage and Indica Dubs. It is always a pleasure to have them at Teachings and we look forward to welcoming them once again, with their immaculate sound system providing the sound all night. Kibir La Amlak, Glory To Jah!

Dubkasm ft. Solo Banton

This one's been a while in the waiting, it's with great excitement that we welcome the legendary Bristol duo to the Teachings stage. For those that don't know, Dj Stryda and Digistep have done a lot for Bristol's dub scene and are renowned internationally for their live performances and roots anthems. Selecta, Dj Stryda is devoted to spreading the word, sound and power of roots reggae to Bristol and beyond, he is the driving force behind Teachings In Dub and hosts the Sufferah's Choice radio show, which has built up a huge following. Digistep is one of the most sought after musicians in modern dub music due to his immense skill on the control board and with his saxophone. They will be joined by one of the best mic men the UK has to offer, Solo Banton, who slots into their performances with ease, the three of them having a higher understanding of the music they play and the vibe they create. Top class roots music played how it was meant to be played, outta Sound System.

Aba Shanti I

To top off the bill, we have the one and only earth rocker himself! He blew us away last June when he took centre stage for the whole night with his system. This time he'll be playing off Kibir La Amlak's stacks. His years of experience and love of bringing people together in the dance will definitely be a treat to behold yet again. He is rightfully regarded as one of the greats of UK soundsystem culture, and we look forward to hearing his selection of classic dubplates and roots specials. We will learn from the master as he delivers another true Teachings in Dubwise.

This is the official Bristol launch party for the United Nations of Dub weekender, as we celebrate the unity of the scene, bredren coming together to bring great music and great vibes, learning and supporting each other to move forward!
