2019 in Review
10 Years of Moonshine Recordings
2019 has been quite a year for sound system music in Berlin! Following in the footsteps of some top-notch events earlier this year – with the likes of Aba Shanti-I & Sista Habesha at YAAM Berlin on April 30th, an unforgettable third edition of our weekender at Mensch Meier one month later (where we invited the likes of Dub Dynasty, Alpha Steppa, The Bush Chemists, Moa Anbessa and many others), and an amazing mini-tour through Germany with Jah Shaka in early October – we finished off a great run with another heavyweight sound system extravaganza at Mensch Meier on December 7th, where we invited the Moonshine Recordings family – featuring Radikal Guru, Bukkha, Numa Crew, Pandadread Sound System and many more – to celebrate their 10th anniversary with us! We would like to give a special thank you to everyone involved in each of these sessions – from the artists and sound system crews, to all the helpers, the venues, bar staff and security. And of course: to everyone who came from near and far to dance with us! Check out the full review here.
JAH SHAKA on tour in Germany!!
On Wednesday, October 2nd, 2019, we began a five day mini-tour with the legendary sound system operator and producer Jah Shaka, who is widely accepted as the forefather of UK dub, and one of the world’s most respected authorities in modern reggae music! The tour brought us across nearly 2000km of German terrain – from the capital city of Berlin to the small town of Freising in the heart of Bavaria, and then north to the city of Dortmund before returning back to Berlin. Each of the three sessions was in it’s own way unique, all with a different local sound system crew providing the necessary amplification and support! With little sleep in between the sessions, and large distances to cover between the cities, it was quite exhausting at times, but all in all, we think it’s safe to say that it was a very inspirational experience for everyone involved! … read more …
