Line-up /Mad Professor, Trojan Sound System, Channel One Soundsystem, Imperial Leisure.
Come and join Soundcrash at KOKO for a journey through the louder side of things, with some truly legendary acts bringing the noise and busting the bass-bins...
The one and only Mad Professor joins us tonight for a very special exclusive Dub to Dubstep LIVE SHOW! No one better to bridge the gap between the genres, seeing as he pretty much single-handedly brought Dub in to the digital age. As a young teenager, the Mad Professor applied his passion for electronics and music and built his own mixing board, and started creating bass-heavy dub. Through his own Ariwa record label, the Mad Professor has released over 100 albums since 1981. In addition to his own dub and reggae work, which ranges from political to experimental to downright extraterrestrial, Mad Professor has remixed tracks for Massive Attack, Depeche Mode, Jamiroquai, Horace Andy, KLF and Perry Farrell. Legendary.
Formed in 2004 from London Sound System legends, The Trojan Sound System has already had hugely successful shows as a single entity and with the greatest names in reggae, representing the label that has been the home of British Reggae, Ska and Roots since 1968. The Sound System comprises selectors Earl Gateshead and Daddy Ad, and Vocalists Superfour and Chucky Banton. Tonight they are joined by the very talented Dennis Al Capone for that extra spice.
Notting Hill Carnival stalwarts Channel One Sound System are on a mission to spread the music of Jah Rastafari across the world via the medium of heavy basslines and positive sounds. Are you ready to be converted?
Imperial Leisure are one of the craziest, most raucous bands you will come across in these parts of the world. Of them, Kerrang magazine said ""Imperial Leisure stand out like a clown at a funeral....A blast of fresh air", and we couldn't have put it any better. Imperial Leisure fuse Rock, Ska and Hip Hop to delirious effect and are the best possible way to kick things off tonight. So get down early if you don't want to miss out!
