Original Jamaican Oldies, vinyl only, powered by Maratone Long Distance HiFi

We’ve been waiting two years to finally carry the boxes into this lovely venue again and are happy to play big tunes on the full sound after such a long time. For health reasons our scheduled special guests Reggae Scorcher can’t make it, instead a local friend and long time collector will join us as full crew behind the decks. The Conqueror has proven his skills in the past and we are glad to hear his tunes on the Soundsystem again after many years.

Entrance will only be granted with a digital EU-certificate of a Covid vaccination or recovery, a matching ID and a negative Antigen-Test from the same day. You can get tested for free (Bürgertest) at many testcenters in town. Capacity is limited to 50% by law, so don’t be late and please be patient at the door.
