Soundcrash head to Electric Brixton November 4th for a night that promises much in the way of bass, reggae and jungle, with some of the biggest names in the scene coming together. Set to appear is soul-reggae sensation Natty, the UK’s leading junglist Congo Natty, dub wizard Mad Professor and Trojan Records’ very own Trojan Soundsystem.
Heading up the bill on November 4th is the multi-talented Natty, a shining light in the new wave of roots reggae artists emerging over the last 10 years. Since 2008, Natty has gone on to produce three EP’s and one full length record, all of which blend joyous African infused instrumentation and authentic reggae vocals. Natty’s latest project, Natty & The Rebelship sees the UK artist draw together heavier roots reggae influences across their debut LP Release The Fear, released in January. With such raw musical talent and effervescent spirit, Natty will be sure to light up the Electric Brixton Stage.
A name familiar with every UK bass fan, Congo Natty is on hand to add serious weight to the lineup with over 20 years at the forefront of the junglist movement. The Rebel MC, a renown energetic live performer, has transcended his passion onto countless records dubplates since his arrival in the late 1980s. Be prepared for some serious toasting and quintessential breaks when Congo Natty makes his return to South London.
An undisputed pioneer of the studio when it comes to dub, Mad Professor’s presence is guaranteed to provide scientific level of precise reverb drenched basslines. Rounding off the lineup is Trojan Soundsystem. Stemming from the legendary Trojan Records, the ensemble made up of MC’s and artists have been sharing their acetate disc knowledge around the world since 2004 and will be on hand to provide a bass culture lesson alongside Mad Professor.
