This month we celebrate the 25th anniversary of the riddim that changed Jamaica’s musical landscape forever, creating a legacy that continues to mash down sound barriers to this day! When Wayne Smith & King Jammy dropped the awesome “Under Mi Sleng Teng” back in ’85, it divided opinion more than any previous evolutionary development in Jamaican popular music. You either loved it or hated it… or were just plain confused by it! 25 years later, this Dancehall anthem is recognised all over the world as a true classic and the riddim, (One of the most versioned EVER!), is rightly hailed as a true musical landmark regardless of genre. Sleng Teng’s influence has spread like wild-fire to pretty much every other contemporary musical style; from Jungle to House, from Hip-Hop to mainstream ‘Pop’ and beyond. If that ain’t a good enough excuse for a party – we don’t know what is!!!
Joining us for this extra-special Jamdown Knees-up will be two of our top spars and favourite selectas – ‘DANGEROUS’ DAVE HENDLEY & STORMIN’ STU TOLHURST – collectively known as DUB ORGANISER – the Kent Coast’s ruling Sound! These guys have choons for days and extra days so run come check it!
Expect anything and everything inna 80’s style & fashion – from Yellowman & Sister Nancy through to Supercat & Cutty Ranks and beyond… Oh, and more cuts of Sleng Teng than you can shake a Rod of Correction at!
THIS EVENT IS OPEN MIC SO IF YOU HAVE POSITIVE LYRICS… BRING DEM COME!!!
See you there…
