Reggae Roast Meets Conscious Sounds

FRIDAY 11TH FEBRUARY | 9PM – 4AM
The City Arts & Music Project Basement | 70 – 74 City Rd, London, EC1Y 2BJ

Following the momentous Righteous EP launch which kicked off 2011 with a bang, Reggae Roast continue the monthly residency in The CAMP Basement with another distinguished guest in the mix. The last 4 months have seen a host of renowned artists passing through the doors of The City Arts & Music Project, with highlights including Aba-Shanti-i, Errol Bellot & Ghetto Priest to name a few. This month is no exception as we welcome UK Dub linchpins Conscious Sounds, playing an exclusive 2-hour set of their classic releases and up-front dubplates.

London Dub producer and purveyor of the finest riddims from his East London studio, Dougie Wardrop, formed Conscious Sounds not long after he first began producing his own tracks in 1989. Conscious Sounds first introduction to the world of dub came with roots singer Tina Stelin who voiced the hit single ‘Can’t Touch Jah.’ Label mainstays the Bush Chemists (comprising of Dougie and partner Paul Davey) have separated themselves from the pack by releasing numerous top-quality 12-inch singles, being featured on numerous mix albums, and by working with such singers as Lutan Fyah, Pablo Gad & Kenny Knots.

Conscious Sounds are an integral part of the London Reggae community, and have developed a distinctive record label production, that is collected fanatically across Europe and beyond. We are delighted to have arranged a 2-hour set from the main man himself; Dougie Conscious, featuring vocals from MC veteran Culture Freeman.

Also playing on the night will be founders of Reggae Roast Exel & Moodie, special guest Steve Bedlam (Noise Control Audio) and resident selector; Dub Hunter. This months session will be hosted by Mystic Messenger, who’s unique MC style and righteous lyrics make him one of the best voices in town. Expect to hear the freshest selection of classic Revival, Dub, Steppers & Dubstep as well as forthcoming dubplates from the Reggae Roast Records imprint.

This is set to be another lively dance, showcasing the best London has to offer in Reggae and Dub. Reggae Roast’s monthly residency continues to promote the strength of real roots music and provides for the demand for a conscious club night, with a welcoming, bass heavy atmosphere. As always this event is only £5 before 11pm and capacity is limited to 350 so arrive early for guaranteed entry.

Artists: CONSCIOUS SOUNDS, STEVE BEDLAM, EXEL & MOODIE, DUB HUNTER & MYSTIC MESSENGER
