TIGHTEN UP CREW
Expect the hottest SKA, coolest ROCKSTEADY, ruffest REGGAE, tuffest ROOTS and the hardest DUB on offer in The Big Smoke as Silver Bullet hosts a very special evening indeed!
Our THREE THE HARD WAY sessions deliver exactly what it says on the label: THREE top revival selectors going toe-to-toe, tune-for-tune, rewind-for-rewind - drawing the HARDEST riddims from their respective dub baskets - all in a spirit of musical unity!
SELECTOR LINKS, RITCHIE RICH & ARCHIE DEE are three of the vintage vinyl scene's most dynamic players. Each hails from a proper Sound System background and each has an impeccable reputation for flinging down selection of the very highest quality! So expect another action-packed, ALL-KILLER-NO-FILLER revival session to rock Finsbury Park to it's foundations!
You COULD ask for more - but that would just greedy!
We have a new Bunny Lee set out on Pressure Sounds in late June 2015. Seventeen tracks on the double vinyl LP and 2 bonus track on the cd. There will also be a 4 track 10'' to accompany the album. Tracklist is below. A mixture of alternate takes on some well known tracks, tasty dubplates and a few overlooked gems.

Compelling roots from Chezidek tougher beat than the original release. Comes with hand stamped label styleee. The version side is excellent, Russ D gives an old idea a new twist. Lovely.
For a long time Uk Steppers lacked real quality JA vocalists. This is great in its own way. A perfect hybrid of the 4 on the floor euro beat mixed with high quality Jamaican artist Luciano. The real thing.
Burru Banton could sing the telephone directory and make it sound essential.
Russ D and Frenchie conjure up a tuff steppers beat that shifts. Slightly slower than these things generally are and all the better for that. Hot stuff on the flipside as well.
The Mad Lads in serious Motown mode on the A side with 'So Afraid' The flipside is really good as well with The Techniques handling 'The Reason Why'.
The Shades in lush romantic mode. A delight from start to finish.
