Following in the footsteps of our some amazing events 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 earlier this month, we’re still going strong, and have put together another heavyweight lineup for our last session of the year!
For this edition of A Bass Odyssey, we’ve invited the mighty Moonshine Recordings – who are celebrating 10 years of solid releases and many memorable sessions – to take over the main floor of Mensch Meier! In order to properly honour this amazing label and showcase some of the talent who have made them one of the most respected names in modern sound system music, we’ve put together another top-notch lineup comprising some of the artists who have contributed to the label’s legacy over the past decade!
Accompanied by some heavyweight support from the east – namely the Pandadread Soundsystem – the Moonshine crew will be sending some of their highest ranking officials from around Europe for this special occasion! Radikal Guru – who has become a solid fixture in the world-wide dub and dubstep scene since his first releases in 2008, and, who as one of the driving forces behind the Moonshine label, effectively helped put Poland on the international sound system radar! And coming in from the west, Bukkha has also been making waves in recent years – most recently with anthems such as “Death Chat” & “Badda Den Dem“, both featuring the vocals of London grime don Killa P. Hailing from the south, Numa Crew has effectively done for Italy what the Moonshine crew have done for Poland. As pioneers of the Italian dubstep scene, they have been championing the sounds of the UK since 2005, focusing on everything sound system and bass related. The crew will be represented by Lapo & Ago – two of the founding members and brilliant djs and producers in their own right! Further support will come from D-Operation Drop – also hailing from Italy but now settled in Berlin – and Moonshine label manager Mack. The session will be hosted and toasted by Baptiste & Saralène – two amazing vocalists with a long musical history, and recent releases on the Moonshine label, as well as the talented trumpet player Vale – who will be joining in during the night!
In the Räuberhöhle, the mighty Kunterbunt Soundsystem will be travelling from Münster with a van full of their excellently crafted and tuned speaker boxes, which they will be playing on all night inna King David style!
And in the Theatre, the legendary Radio Massive Crew – who were among the first to bring the sounds of the Jungle to Berlin in the early to mid-90’s with their regular FM broadcast “Radio Massive” – will be spinning some classic vinyls and rare gems from their extensive Jungle / Drum & Bass collections!
