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.

DJ Goldfinga
a picture of dj goldfingaOriginal Berlin Rudeboy DJ Goldfinga fell in love with “oldtime’ Carribbean Music in his early teens and started buying Jamaican 45s straight from the start in the early 1980s. Not long before he started spinning his 45s in public and became founding member and drummer of Berlin’s Ska Band ‘Mother’s Pride’. Over the past 30 years he played hundreds of concerts across the continent, hosted several allnighters and deejayed countless clubs and partys, yet the music remained the same: Finest Ska, Rocksteady, Heavy Boss Reggae and Vintage Roots from Jamaica. We’re glad he accepted the challenge to take part in this year’s Soundclash – it’s about time to have him play on our Soundsystem again!

Just a few months ago our Rhythm Ruler was invited by Tom Bauminista to join Goldfinga for a Dub conference special focussing on 70s tunes. Back then Tom asked to join him again for another show, this time with a selection of rare oldies. It finally happened and The Rhythm Ruler not only brought a handful of favourites, but also his long time friend and former Sweet Sensation partner Rudewoi and a recording of the Reggae round in last year’s soundclash to get you in the mood for this year’s edition in September. Many thanks to Tom, and rastfm for the opportunity and for great shows each and every (sun)day.

It was a wonderful weekend out there at Fort Gorgast. Fortunately, Kingston Headroll and our man Threepwood did not only play great music but also shot some pictures.
