SOFT WAX MEETS JAMTONE AND FRIENDS, FOUNDATION ROOTS REGGAE REVIVE AND ROCKSTEADY SKA
On Saturday the 22nd February Soft Wax, Jamtone and Guests will present a party night of Jamaican music, from 7.00 to midnight. For this session the tunes will be spinnin’ on Jamtone’s traditional Sound System rig, enabling them to be appreciated to full affect, in a “back-a-yard” style. Strictly Roots Reggae, vintage Rocksteady and Ska.
Darren Jamtone has been the mainstay of Sound Systems for two decades. He is now an accomplished live and studio Sound Engineer too, with many records to his name. Steve Wax has been carving out a unique niche as an installation DJ. Together, with the mighty Mikey SP guesting too, we’ll be selecting a blistering mix from Bluebeat through to “one away” contemporary roots rock Reggae.
In the Soft Wax tradition, the beginning of the show will focus on a brief selection of rare tunes, illustrating the transition from R&B to distinctive forms of Jamaican music – some on 78 rpm. These will be aired on vintage equipment from that time.
The Vibe Gallery is “transitioning” into the Trispace Gallery, but same place, same full license and mega relaxed vibe. Vintage reggae vinyl will be available “fee buy”. So come on down to this “out of the way” venue, for pure niceness all the way
