Saturday 8th June 7.30pm to 1pm
Sound System Culture is a series of nights at the EcoPark spotlighting the leading ‘soundmen’ and producers of reggae and dub in the UK right now.
1st up we have Darran Jamtone and Robert Dallas alongside Cornwall’s own Pressure Roots Hi Fi. Darren Jamtone is a long time Soundman and a reggae producer of the highest order, working with such luminaries as Linval Thompson, Earl 16, Cornell Cambell, Little Roy, Luciano, Mafia and Fluxy e.t.c. His label Jamtone Records releases some of the best UK roots and Dub music out there today as well as cutting dubplates for all the top sound systems.
Robert Dallas a singer hailing from Jamaica has had his first LP, Tradition Man produced and published by Jamtone Records. Its a killer! Born in Jamaica and raised by his Grandma, singing was always his first love. During the 80s he would follow the well trod trail of visiting the big studios in search of some recognition of his undoubted talent. but it was not until he met Darren many years later that his talent bore fruit with a recording. Its hard to believe its taken so long for his talent to be recognised, with such a beautiful voice and conscious songwriting ability but we’re glad it now has and Robert Dallas is finally getting the recognition he deserves!
Pressure Roots Hi Fi need no introduction…Cornwall’s leading Sound System with Rory at the controls its an instrument with a heavy, heavyweight sound!
Bringing these 3 elements together its going to be a night of pure upliftment and vibrations….serious!
