After three huge, sold-out dances PBS 106.7FM is proud to announce the return of its new monthly ska, rocksteady and early reggae event Jamaica Jump-Up, taking over The Gasometer Hotel on Saturday, July 25.
With resident selectors Jesse I digging for new dubplates in Jamaica and Stryka D deep in the UK’s summer sound system culture, we’ve got an extra-special lineup of guests for Jamaica Jump-Up #4. Joining resident Mohair Slim (Blue Juice) is Stryka D’s partner-in-bass Top Ranking (Break the Chain), Melbourne’s first lady of reggae Systa bb (The Good, The Dub & The Global – 3RRR), along with Fabulous Fez, Solomon and Miss Fee on the decks with 100% vinyl selections from 9pm until 3am.
We’re also very excited to have Melbourne’s own purveyors of vintage Jamaican sounds Johnny Longshot joining us for a live set! As always, MC Kilmarnock Steve is taking care of formalities for the rocksteady massive. Get down to the Gas early to beat the queue.
