Heatwave & Maga Bo in Sheffield – with me supporting!

In Sheffield – the ultimate solstice night out! The hottest dancehall line up the UK can offer!

Next Friday at the Ehtio-Cubana restaurant at 15-23 Arundel Gate. It’s near the end of Arundel Gate opposite TJ Hughes, where the tram stop and Primark are, on the same side of the road as the Roxy nightclub and Odeon cinema. It’s got a big colourful sign saying ETHIOCUBANA.

I’ll be playing a bunch of mainly 80s roots, dub and dancehall, possibly with some 90s bashment cuts – and a bit of dubstep and ragga jungle if I can get away with it.

Get in…


The set was blindingly good: 9 decomposing, dubbing and combining pieces of old and new material on the fly from a laptop patched through effects and a mixing desk, while a kinetic Space Ape (looser and an octave higher than I’m used to hearing him) took total command of the stage. There was and energy and fluidity about the performance that is utterly foreign to dubstep most of the time.
