Carnival warm up time in London town!
Check out these events in the next few weeks:
First up some sweet FREE madness in Kings Cross organised by Whydelila and The Large. Great line up with foundation UK dancehall represented by Saxon and a more contemporary take on those sounds by the man like Wrongtom amongst many others. I would hazard a guess that tunes old and new will be played. Should be ace.
Secondly, east London sees the launch party for the second issue of No Ice Cream Sound fanzine.
A great line up once again, not sure if there’s a door tax or not though. There’s probably more info on the facebook page if you’re on facebook.
The zine itself is said to feature:
Exclusive interviews with SIZZLA, WARD 21, SOLO BANTON and CAROLYN COOPER
A special look into Japanese Dancehall from our JP correspondent
Exclusive illustrations from Gabe (seen-site.com), Smutlee (YoYo) and Karen
A huge dancehall chart from Al Fingers
Gabriel Heatwave’s exclusive review of Showtime!
AND MORE! 50 pages of dancehall badness!
Oh and a modest piece by me, if it made it though the rigorous editorial panel…
My review of the first issue is here.
