Regulars at Teachings in Dub will remember our Peng Sound special at the beginning of the year - straight fire! Well, as when playing a 7" vinyl disc; after Part I must come Part II...
OSSIA feat. Rankin Snoopy
Peng Sound Records bossman, Ossia, is a militant purveyor of vinyl whether it be in the dancehall, via his various record labels, or his jointly run online record store; RwdFwd. His Peng Sound nights began in the infamous Take 5 Cafe on Stokes Croft, underground and grass-roots they (and of course the label) have always showcased artists and music that Ossia is 100% behind. Joined by Bristol Reggae don Rankin Snoopy (Unique Star), their debut set at Teachings is set to be packed full of dubplate gems and original deejay lyrical niceness!
ISHAN SOUND feat. Rider Shafique
His 2013 debut release on Peng Sound caught the attention of vinyl buyers around the globe, deep and dread with Ras Addis on vocals. Ishan has since had releases on the wonderful Zam Zam in the US, Pinch's world renowned Tectonic Recordings, not to mention his eight track double vinyl EP back on Peng earlier this year. Hard-hitting minimal dubwise is what we have come to expect from Ishan, his material has been strongly supported by fellow Peng Sound artists Dubkasm and Gorgon Sound and continues to tear up dances world wide. Although known for cutting dubplates Ishan has also recently launched his 'live' set where he dubs his material on the spot, spontaneous mixes in real time. This is what we have in store for us at the next chapter of Teachings and with the ever-conscious Rider Shafique joining him on the microphone we already know Ishan is going to come heavy like lead!
IRATION STEPPAS SOUNDSYSTEM
You know a sound system is top of the game when they run a special, and the whole crowd cheer at the first bar. The mighty Iration Steppas, an unstoppable force outta Leeds, have been tearing up dances for over 20 years now, and they definitely know how to shake the room. With Mark Iration at the I-trols, selection comes from the top draw each and every time. They get the perfect balance between lost gems, forward thinking dubwise and a whole heap of dubplates and specials. Their hard work and professionalism is very much to thank for the spread of reggae music and for pushing it forward to newer heights. They'll be joined by the mighty Danman on the mic always ready and prepared to chant down Babylon with his righteous Rastaman lyrical vibration. Running dubs inna year 3000 style into the night; if you didn't know by now, Iration Steppas are the general!
