It was soundclash time once again in Berlin, this year happening in early fall at Badehaus. Despite the crazy prices for flights and hotels caused by another “Marathon” event, people travelled from all corners of Europe to witness this night. Our Soundsystem was set up in record time, due to a live show in the same venue that only ended 1 hour before. 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

Check out a good part of the brilliant warmup for the 2019 Soundclash by the Prince of Peace on Mixccloud:

The new generation of selectors is running their first own night. They already proved their talent at several allnighters including the ReggaeXplosion and in case of Polly S even on our soundsystem at the Vintage Night BBQ earlier this year. Full support from our side and with Reggae Rumble the day after it is well worth a trip to Berlin for the whole weekend.

We’ve been raving about the online project “No man is an island” by Morgan Nixon when we found it online some months ago. As our Rhythm Ruler was helping with information and pictures for some entries and also happens to work in the printing industry we already knew for a while that a book is in the making. We are thrilled that we can finally share this news with you!

About the book

 “No Man Is An Island” is a community, not-for-profit project aiming to help people navigate the mind-numbing record pressing maze of the legendary Studio One label. This guide serves as a resource for those on a journey to find the best quality pressings of critical Studio One tracks.
The book is the result of many years of collecting records, comparing fidelity and sound quality of pressings, and digging into Jamaican music history to understand the context of the sound production. 

The book is available online at buyreggae.com and you can buy a copy offline at our next dance, Reggae Rumble on the 23rd of November. You can even get it signed by the author as Moman will be our guest selector and play some of the sweet Studio One tunes you will find in the books.

It’s about time that this movie is finally screened in Germany more than a year after it’s premiere. Although some critics say that it exaggerates the role of Trojan Records in the popularity of Reggae Music in the UK and feels more like an promotional film than a proper documentary it should be well worth watching. The screening is free, so better don’t miss your chance. More screenings can be found on the official website.
