We are about to open our doors for the final chapter of 2014 and we can't wait.
We love soundsystem culture and it has been our pleasure to host many of the finest sounds around in our arena. Seeing as this session is the last for the year we wanted to offer something slightly different but very special. We are very pleased to be able to bring to Bristol two of our favourite independent record labels:
ROOTS GARDEN and TUFF SCOUT!
Both these imprints have put out a stream of hard-hitting releases that's caught the attention of the reggae world. Working with legendary artists from Jamaica as well as new talent from the UK both have become known as some of the few 'buy on sight' labels still around and they promise to dig deep in the dubplate box for this one-off occasion!
On microphone duties and joining them in the arena we've pulled out all the stops and called in the likes of the legendary sweet voice out of Jamaica, EARL 16! Starting his career in the mid 70's Earl has recorded with some of the best; including Lee Perry, Joe Gibbs and Mad Professor, to name but a few. One of the most consistent singers in Reggae, it really is a huge treat to have Earl on this bill. He will be together with MC TROOPER who hails from the original Twelve Tribes Sounds, Jah Revelation, lyrical fire! Teaming up with Tuff Scout is the mighty REALITY SOULJAHs, whose unique combination as a duo has led to them recording with some of the best contemporary roots producers around, as well as being regulars on the European Soundsystem circuit, performing with the likes of Blackboard Jungle out of France.
Of course there has to be a soundsystem or it wouldn't be Teachings in Dub! All acts will be performing live and direct on the mighty KIBIR LA AMLAK who will once again bring their beautiful hand built soundsystem into the Trinity Centre and shake the very foundations with Jah music. Blessing the mic for them will be the up and coming MULU whose performances on the sound have built her an instant name as the new roots daughter in town. Joining her will be the righteous sounds of DONOVAN KINGJAY who has been making big strides recently with some heavyweight releases and of course nicing up the dance very often with the great Channel One.
This will be a night of top quality roots music and a wonderful way to round off the year! Remember to join the Facebook Event; we look forward to seeing you all on the 12th of December.
