Ishan Sound (UK) / Kaya Foundation Crew / ZO / Alienmade
6th of December / Expirat
Starting 23:00 hours / Ticket: 30 lei

We are happy to announce our last monthly residence for this year in club Expirat will focus on a journey into bass music. From roots reggae to dubstep this session is dedicated to the low frequencies and the culture behind the sound.

Ishan Sound

Bristol based DJ and producer, part of the Young Echo collective, Ishan Sound has helped sculpt an array of music that gleefully exists on the more experimental edges of music, but his solo output under the Ishan Sound name has quite a specific and direct intention. Piled full of low end then riddled with interesting melodies and chunky percussive elements his music belongs in dark rooms, played loud on muscled soundsystems that can replicate the dense sense of dread that he writes and captures. Ishan Sound has released music on labels such as Young Echo, Peng Sound, Zam Zam and Tectonic.

In 2009 Kaya built Kogaion Sound System, the first local sound. Pushing the militant rockers rhythm even further, Kaya became an emblematic name for the Romanian scene of reggae music. For nine years now, they kept organizing dances and build strong communities around their annual festival: One Love.

Alienmade

Born and raised in Bucharest, the half-Romanian, half-intergalactic DJ and producer Alienmade started his activity around 2011. Recently signed at the Romanian label Dirty Beats with a powerful remix for High Kulture & Unda Sinista's 'Bass Era', made him produce more music and collaborate with different promising dubstep artists such as Kodama or Ego Death. Slamming in with dark, minimalistic dub-induced sets, he is keeping his journey alive and diverse, providing a cracked window into the deep space of 140 bpm music.

Black Rhino pres. Channel One Sound System / 18.05

Thursday, 18.05. 10PM
Sound provided by Irie Warriors Soundsystem

We continue our fine selection of music and artists with Channel One Sound System. Veterans of reggae music, Channel One is one of the world's greatest and best known dub and reggae sound systems. Operated by Mikey Dread on the i-trols and MC Ras Kayleb, their sound revolves in sound system culture.

CHANNEL ONE SOUND SYSTEM

In 1979, Mikey Dread and his brother Jah T began to play at blues parties and local dances having spent many years under the watchful eye of their father, owner operator of the famous Admiral Bailey Sound. They chose the name Channel One in homage to the legendary Jamaican record label of the same name whose tunes featured heavily in those early selections. Inspired by Bob Marley’s belief in uniting people through reggae music, Mikey was keen to introduce new people to dub reggae music and started touring around universities, where he secured a solid fan base.

Channel One’s mission is to break down barriers via reggae music, they have achieved this by playing new venues, new festivals and different countries, taking their unique sound to Australia, New Zealand, Israel, Turkey and all over Europe. Channel One also celebrated 30 consecutive years at the Notting Hill Carnival making them one of the must see sound systems for attendees to Europe's biggest street festival.

2009 saw Channel One embark on their hugely successful national Dub to Dubstep Tour, with financial backing from the Arts Council, via Blackroutes and support from Punch and Vagabondz. Channel One took their sound system to 6 cities, touring alongside Kromestar, RSD and Jazzsteppa, showcasing their dub reggae sound system as part of the tangible heritage behind dubstep. In 2011, Channel One have been on another tour, this time Dub to Jungle alongside Congo Natty, Tenor Fly, Congo Dubz, Nanci and Phoebe and Klose One. And finally in 2012 Channel One went on a Jamaica Party tour, celebrating Jamaica’s 50th year of independence - alongside Coki, Mala, Shy FX, The Bug and Flowdan, Top Cat, The Heatwave, General Roots, RoxXxan, Rtkal and Screama. Finally Channel One have toured with the legendary Twinkle Brothers, a concept put together by Mikey Dread. These tours have been a great way for Channel One to reach new audiences.

Channel One Sound System's hand built custom speaker stacks provide a rich heavyweight bass sound which compliments their tight selection of old and new dub reggae classics, all played from a single vinyl deck and accented with echos and sirens. MC Ras Kayleb compliments Mikey's deep draws with Rastafarian chants and songs.

IRIE WARRIORS SOUNDSYSTEM

Irie Warriors build their sound system in 2012, becoming Irie Warriors Sound System. Operated by Dani and Low Freq, their music resides both in rockers and steppers rhythm. Playing in major festivals and dances around the country Irie Warriors Sound System impresses by its versatile and militant sound.

Come and join their dances to hear early reggae, rub-a-dub, digital dancehall and one drop music selection.
