Berlin is a great city.
Very small reggae scene, not a lot of strictly reggae stores either. Definitely pay HardWax a visit though. Quite some good represses, some original press and they have the whole Wackies and Basic Channel catalog (including all the Rhythm 'n' Sound ten inches...) Worth it!

The real reggae record cave, if you have a lot of time, is the Buyreggae.com headquarters in Kreuzberg ! Amazing place.

There is a weekly soundsystem dance with Irieland Soundsystem every Wednesday at Kili-Manjaro (Wiesenweg 5-9, 10365 Berlin)
A little bit hard to find but strong vibes inside!

Also if you are into the real rub-a-dub thing, the excellent French imports from Upfull sound, some of them, have moved there and are doing a few things I believe?

Upfull is a collective that is the result of a merger from four different parisian reggae scene actors : B-No, High Bass, Rogue Wave and Theo. They held a residency in Parisian venue « Péniche Cinéma » for two years, shared stage and collaborated with some major acts of the European and international reggae world : Stand High Patrol, Jahtari, Skank It Up, El Fatta, Riddim Tuffa, Raggattack and a lot of different french activists. In late year 2013, we organized a tour with the veteran artist Trevor Junior, from Jamaica, which lasted 3 months.
Today the crew is growing : One more member arrived (Theo, from Parisian records shop Patate Records) and split in two parts after the moving of Rogue Wave to Berlin.

Definitely call before cause it's not ashop-shop, it's more like someone's house and they have to open to you.
