We are very excited to announce plans for our forthcoming quarterly event; Jamdown. The Reggae Roast Jamdown is a new series of momentous events at Plan B, Brixton over the next 12 months and beyond.
The Jamdown sessions will showcase the best roots reggae, dub, dubstep & jungle music from across the globe. Each event will feature a selection of top dubwise acts, supported by the renowned Reggae Roast residents DJs & singers. Situated in the heart of Brixton, Plan B is arguably the best club venue in south London, with a reputation for top quality programing, sound system and atmosphere.
The first Jamdown event showcases a selection of artists from the reggae roast records roster. Each of the headline acts have served up critically acclaimed 12” releases on the Reggae Roast imprint over the past 3 years. For this mammoth first event we have decided to bring them all together, displaying the full effect of the reggae roast movement. We have also drafted in some additional special guests to nice up the dance, including 9-piece live act; OnlyJoe and south London stalwart DJ Snuff.
Headlining the event are Mungo’s Hifi who have been hotter than lava this year! Having hosted the legendary Mungo’s courtyard arena at Outlook festival and releasing a string of massive releases on their Scotch Bonnet label, the Glasgow based super group are seemingly unstoppable. Pioneering a pounding, 21st century rub-a-dub style, Mungo’s Hifi have been serving up some serious riddims, featuring celebrated vocalists such as Movado, Sugar Minot and Earl 16. Not to mention their standout remix on the ‘Reggae Music’ EP released on Reggae Roast Records in May this year.
RSD, perhaps better known as Bristol bass and drum music legend Rob Smith and one half of the respected production duo Smith and Mighty, has been pushing bass heavy rhythms for more than two decades. He remains firmly at the forefront of Bristol’s endlessly inventive music scene, with a staggering discography and a range of projects encompassing dub, drum and bass, 2-step and dubstep.
Adding a live injection to the proceedings, Kenny Knots & Ruben Da Silva will both perform 30-min PA sets, playing classic tracks including ‘Watch How the People Dancing’ and ‘Bless A Sound’ not to mention exclusives performances of ‘Sensi Skank’ & ‘Love Light’, forthcoming on Reggae Roast Records. Also playing on the night will be Reggae Roast founders Exel & Moodie and resident selector; Dub Hunter. The sessions will be hosted by the one and only Ramon Judah.
This first Jamdown event will set the tone for what promises to be one of London’s leading and most innovative dubwise experiences. The next 12 months will see Plan B play host to an exceptional selection of artists in a showcase style, giving dub enthusiasts an unforgettable night out. Forthcoming artists include Rhythm & Sound, David Rodigan, Aba Shanti-I & many more. There will be no better place in the capital to enjoy the many manifestations of dub.
