Backbeat Soundsystem

In a UK reggae scene that has long eschewed bands in favor of sound systems, Backbeat Soundsystem are a different beast, bringing 8 musicians to the stage. While many of their peers are slavish in their attempt to recreate an authentic Jamaican-leaning sound, Backbeat Soundsystem are not afraid to go in totally different directions, pulling in influences from all across the music spectrum, to create their vision of modern reggae. Dean and Adjua effortlessly tear up the stage with lush harmonies, soaring melodies and natural born chemistry. This combined with a flawless horn section and undeniable groove leaves the audience mesmerised by their show stopping performance. Bringing an electronic flavour to the mix, with dub effects, sirens and live analog synthesiser, Backbeat Soundsystem remind the world that dub reggae is at the forefront of dance music culture.

Sud Sound System Live In London

GoMad Events is proud to present you an incredible LIVE show coming all the way from South Italy to the Brixton Jamm on the 9th of November 2017: Sud Sound System Official Live feat. PAPA LEU Selecter MR FASO (Rootikal London) Amaraterra Live Fenomeno show ( Open The Gate ) Brixton Heights SUPER EARLY BIRDS Available now! Ticketscript: https://goo.gl/mXZ7Vn Italian reggae ambassadors in the world, Sud Sound System are back to London to present their last incredible album, Eternal Vibes! Three years after their last album, Sud Sound System are now back with their 10th album after having performed in the most important European capital cities and for their first time in Jamaica. 16 musical tracks full of meaningful messages and deep emotions that confirm them as ambassadors of the Reggae music in Italy and around the world and main proponents of those unique sounds made in Salento. The album reveals the double face of the artists who identify themselves with rebellious and angry bandits as well as dreamers and lovers looking for a balance in todays society. Eternal Vibes is an invitation for people to free themselves from the lies of the system and to question all the rhetorics and clichs. It is therefore an album of social protest: a protest against the institutions total disinterest towards the problems of young people (alle pezze, cose de pacci) as well as a protest against the supremacy of banks and multinational corporations. Generally speaking, it is against todays violence concealed by the hypocrisy of the Church and institutionalized religions (A nome de Diu). At the same time it is also an album of love songs and rediscovery of their own land enriched by the cooperation of several artists such as Enzo Avitabile, U-Roy, Anthony B, Freddy Mc Gregor and Wild Life.

Macka B (Full Band) + Support

Macka B has always been interested in music. At a very young age he was impressed by the heavyweight sound system Lord Barley, playing in the blues party next door. The vibrant reggae beat found a place in his heart that remains there to this very day. Curator of Macka Bs Medical Mondays & Wha me eat Wednesdays he is one of Britains most influential dancehall toasters, pushing the music back towards a Rastafarian political consciousness. His rough, gravelly vocals gave him an instantly identifiable sound, and his production chiefly handled by Mad Professor updated dub reggae techniques for the dancehall age, proving that the two sounds werent mutually exclusive. 2017 was witness to Macka Bs latest milestone. Hes dedication to the vegan lifestyle and spectacular weekly food updates allowed him to become a global viral success generating a staggering 50 Million views in less than a month! 2017 also sees him release his latest album Health is Wealth out on the legendary Greensleeves label.
