The Tighten Up Crew is a constant supplier of good vibes in London for more than 20 years. You can catch them at the clubnight of Trojan Records, the Notting Hill Carnival on the Gladdy Wax Soundsystem or throwing their own partys where London’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 authentic sound and bubbly basslines.

Timetable for the Soundystem Floor at OBOA with Freedom Fighter Soundystem and Maratone Long Distance HiFiOBOA is a free, outdoor festival not far from Berlin. This year, Freedom Fighter Soundsystem and Maratone Long Distance teamed up to present a Soundystem Yard inside the walls of the old castle that is the festival site. They will not only bring their massive speakers but also friends who help building the floor, running the bar and playing music influenced by jamaican soundsystem culture – from R&B, Calypso and Ska to Reggae, Dub and Steppas.

Find all information (how to get there, FAQs) on the website of OBOA then.

Just two weeks after the Soundsystem Yard at OBOA you can hear us outdoors again. Find us at YAAM and join us for afro-caribbean food, rum and cocktails and a dance with good vibes only. Music from vinyl only will be played by The Soulvendor (Tropical Timewarp), Stefan (Such a Sound / Vintage Night), Ms Trouble & Polly S., Rudewoi & The Rhythm Ruler.
