The second edition of our Vintage Jamaican Music Soundclash was another thriller. A written- and video-recap will follow at a later point, check out these amazing pictures by #verenamoerath in the meantime.

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.

Yugo Taguchi is not just the always well dressed Team Rub-A-Dub singjay, who was singing and toasting on our soundsystem several times already. He also collects records and will play some of his favourite oldies alongside “Utah Jazz” at Schilling Bar in Neukölln.
