The Tighten Up Crew is a constant supplier of good vibes in London for more than 20 years. You can catch them at their regular “Reggae Cookout”, at Notting Hill Carnival on the Gladdy Wax Soundsystem or throwing their signature Dance “Tighten Up!” where the UK’s best selectors and Deejays will play and toast.
As it has been almost 10 years since selectors Mistah Brown, Tim P and Deejay Champian played in Berlin it is about time to get them over again. From Ska and Rocksteady to Reggae, Roots and Rub-a-Dub – Reggae Rumble will bring back the good old days of Jamaican Music.

Original vinyl records and our heavyweight Maratone Long Distance HiFi provide proper sound with bubbly basslines.

The soundsystem has been in storage for way too long, it’s time to blow off some dust! We invited two selectors that can provide the perfect tunes for this – from Original Ska, through Heavyweight Rock Steady, Boss Reggae to the toughest Roots. Tiny T and Thee Snufferer are proud owners of a trophy won at the Vintage Jamaican Music Soundclash in 2018 and 2019 and haven’t played on Maratone Long Distance HiFi since.

27.11.2021 - Reggae Rumble

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.
