    On Wednesday 9 January, Dub Me Always presents another sound system special, when the mighty Supertone sound system will be rocking the house in a roots and culture style, with Wally B, Sugar Dread and Benjamin at the controls, supported by host DJ, David Katz.
    A pillar of the Brixton sound system scene since 1969, Supertone’s associated record shop has been serving patrons in Acre Lane since 1984; Jamaican-born founder Wally B has strong connections throughout the reggae world, leading to piles of exclusive dub plates and releases on his own label by the Heptones, Winston Jarrett and Leroy Smart. Sugar Dread is an esteemed selector that has played extensively in Africa and Europe as well as the UK, and the presenter of a longstanding reggae show on community station Vibes FM; Benjamin is another key part of the Supertone crew. Expect roots and culture classics and unknown dubplates, delivered the hard way.

    CHAMPIONZ LEAGUE SELECTORS AND ACTIVISTS

    Today reggae and sound system culture has a highly visible profile, thanks to Jah Shaka, Aba Shanti, Channel One and, of course, Bob Marley. But much of the groundwork for reggae music in the United Kingdom was laid by members of the CHAMPIONZ LEAGUE SELECTORS AND ACTIVISTS

    The Championz League selectors, are FESTUS, [COSXONE SOUND SYSTEM], RIBS UNITY [FATMAN, UNITY SOUND SYSTEM], NATTY FRONTLINE [JAH SUFFERER/COSXONE/FRONTLINE SOUND] and DENNIS BOVELL [JAH SUFFERER]. They are joined by THE ACTIVISTS: ORIGINAL DUBMAN, HB NAPTALI, RAS DIGBY, UNCLE AL, PRINCE SHERMAN and special guests.

    In the musical hotbed of the 1970s and 1980s sound system scene, these were the champion selectors to beat. They were the ones tasked by Jamaican producers to break their biggest tunes in the UK. They were also responsible for bringing new artists to the public. An example is the number one single IRIE FEELINGS by RUPIE EDWARDS launched by DENNIS BOVELL in a clash with FATMAN. Likewise NATTY, who alongside JAH PEBBLES road-tested Bob Marley’s EXODUS on a special dubplate months before its ISLAND Records release. As the selector for Coxsone Sound, with an encyclopaedic archive of vinyl knowledge, FESTUS spent many years fending off all challenges. RIBS was also untouchable, especially when he introduced the unique CHANNEL ONE mixing style - radically altering roots and dub reggae in ways that can still be heard today.Completing this lineup of champion selectors are the ACTIVISTS. These include toasters or emcees such as HB NAPTALI, RAS DIGBY and ORIGINAL DUBMAN as well as other selectors who earned respect in clashes with the group.

    The Champions League are quite simply the toughest squad of sound system legends ever assembled under one banner. Drawing on decades of musical and cultural experience they bring a depth and excitement to any reggae event - from the liveliest clash to the most uplifting spiritual cleansing roots rock reggae session.

    ONE HEART & ONE LOVE FROM THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE TO THE WORLD

    REGGAE REGULAR are part of that golden generation of UK reggae bands, including Aswad, Matumbi, Misty In Roots, Steel Pulse and others, who gave UK reggae a status and presence of its own.
    Formed in South London in 1976,their first single, roots anthem ‘Where Is Jah?’, was the very first record released by legendary Greensleeves Records. Their second single ‘The Black Starliner' promptly topped the UK reggae charts, and they have since performed and recorded without interruption, working with such producers as Dennis Bovell, Castro Brown, and Mad Professor. Back on their home turf, an essential chapter of reggae history live on stage.
    Current lineup: George Clarke, Keyboards. Patrick Donegan, Rhythm Guitar & Vocals. Iain Austin, Bass. Learoy Green, Drums. Grantie Asher, Lead Vocals.
    Decks: DJ Zinc Fence. Sun.

    8pm-4amThe Jago, Dalston 1 Richmond Rd, London, E8 4AA

    The Vibes n Pressure Shubeen is Back! Voted one of the best nights out in London, our flagship event has returned to Dalston, every second Friday night at the Jago (formerly passing clouds), commencing 13th September 2019.

    Vibes n Pressure is a movement, a record label, a philosophy. For the past 10 years, we have created some of the most memorable events in London, from open mic nights for emerging talent, to much bigger one-day festival themed concerts, events promoting critical thinking of overarching themes, and our flagship event … The Shubeen, which is rooted in a warm and welcoming vibe, with upfront rootical music, Ital food, and great live performances. We pride ourselves on a history of audiences leaving our events both uplifted and inspired. A few of the acts to have blessed our stages include Wretch32, Kwabs, The Skints, George The Poet, Dawn Penn, Tom Grennan, Junior Marvin, Akala, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, a young Ed Sheeran to name but a few.

    Some of our highlights in the past have included hosting and curating festival stages at Glastonbury, Bestival, Victorious Festival and others, hosting the UK leg of the Rototom European Reggae talent search, creating the Youth-Hub events which hosted live debates on themes such as consumption, revolution, the black UK experience and other big concepts, with film and live performances. We have released singles, albums and compilations on our record label and along the way created internships for young people to learn about the record industry, and gain experience in events management.

    Come to the Jago on the 13th September and be apart of the movement. The first event will include performances from foundation Vibes and Pressure family members… Natty and The Rebelship headlining, supported by the amazing JJ Soulx and Hip Hop wizards RU1FAM.

    Vibes n Pressure are proud sponsors of the ERASE Foundation, who support schools and orphanages in Africa.

    A simple way to look at our philosophy is the concept of taking higher energy consciousness (Vibes) and applying it (Pressure) so as to affect positive change. Key Rastafari principles of balance, equal rights and unity and are at the foundation of this movement.
