It’s been a while since The Rhythm Ruler recorded a mix and with the current circumstances there is more than enough time for it, so here you go. Starting with some recently released Ska on the Rock-A-Shacka label he takes you on a journey from the mid-sixties to the mid-seventies and added a recent production he plays on heavy rotation lately. All original 7″ records as always with some of them being released for the first time this or last year. Read more

After 32 years in the game the LISF knows to present a great mix of contemporary and legendary artists on stage. Our highlights of this year are The Pioneers, Dennis Alcapone, Big Youth, Dave Barker and Christopher Ellis. In the past few years the festival has also focussed on including soundsystem culture to the aftershow parties and clubnights. World famous Sir Coxsone Outernational will set up their soundsystem at thursday night and Phil Bush’s all valve driven Sounds & Pressure soundsystem will be in full swing on saturday. We are very happy to announce that our Rhythm Ruler will play tunes alongside Phil and his other guest, Brian Kelson, that night.

UPDATE: Due to the Corona-crisis the festival is postponed. It is not yet clear if The Rhythm Ruler will still be able to make it, but please consider to support the festival that is now in quite some financial problems.

28.-30.8.2020 – London

But as soon as the basslines did bubble through the speakers all those hectic moments were forgotten.
Before the war started it was time for the Prince Of Peace from Munich to warm up the place (not that it was was needed with 30degrees Celcius inside). He did an excellent job and got all feet dancing on the wooden floor. Read more
