Dub-Stuy Records and Deadly Dragon Sound are excited to present the return of MINI MART HI POWER for the third edition of The Roots of Sound System. This quarterly party brings together top-selectors and sound systems from around the world to showcase a specific style of Jamaican music on the most appropriate format: Dub-Stuy’s hand-crafted 15,000W Tower of Sound. This ‘Dancehall’ edition will focus on the golden age of reggae in New York City when Mini Mart was producing sold out dances at the Starlight Ballroom, Reggae Lounge and Biltmore. Having not performed since the mid-90’s Mini Mart will feature SUPA DANE, BOBO GENEAL, CURRY DON, TONTO IRIE, SCREECHY DAN, JAMES BOND, WILLOW WILSON, JANGO THRILLER with special guest, SHINEHEAD.

In the 1980s and early 1990s MINI MART HI POWER featuring SUPA DANE at the controls with Bobo General, Curry Don, Sleepy Wonder and Errol T ran New York City. Known as the entertainer’s Sound System, Mini Mart tapped into the golden age of NYC reggae with their core group of performers as well as the featured artists that would perform alongside them such as Tonto Irie, Shinehead, Screechy Dan, James Bond, Jango Thriller and more. A Mini Mart dance was a guaranteed sell-off as it combined the new digital sounds of the 80s/early 90s with the excitement of the selector/DJ combination that defined the classic Rub-A-Dub dances of the late 70s / early 80s.

As the 90s progressed and sound system / sound clash culture became more defined by Pre-recorded Dub Plates rather than live mics men, Mini Mart Hi Fi performed less and less until memories of the great Mini Mart dances in such venues as Starlight Ballroom, Reggae Lounge and Biltmore supplanted the reality of their live show.

DUB-STUY Records presents Bass Music and Sound System Culture at The Paper Box

Saturday, March 8
The Paper Box
17 Meadow St, Brooklyn, NY
$15 advance, $20 door
9PM to 4AM

DUB-STUY Records presents
Bass Music and Sound System Culture
Dub-Stuy 3.8.14

“On March 8th, Dub-Stuy Records returns to the Paper Box with their custom built hi-fidelity sound system for the fourth edition of Echo Chamber. This iteration will serve as the launch party for “Battle Cry” – Tour de Force’s first full length album on the label.”


Tour de Force featuring legendary London-based
MC Brother Culture
MC Brother Culture

In a little more than a year, the Brooklyn-based duo Tour de Force has established itself as one of the pillars of the U.S. underground bass music scene. Through their record label and iconic 15,000-watt, handcrafted wooden speaker stack dubbed the “Tower of Sound”, they have forged a reputation as the leading crew behind the resurgence and development of dub reggae and sound system culture in America. To support the release of their first album on Dub-Stuy records, they will embark on a six city, four country tour with MC Brother Culture who is featured on the LP’s “Roots Lyrics” track.

Brother Culture is an MC based in Brixton, London. He started his career around 1982 for Jah Revelation Muzik sound system. As part of the Twelve Tribes of Israel Rasta brotherhood, Brother Culture toured in the USA, Jamaica, Caribbean and Canada throughout the 80’s. In the early 90’s, he started to MC at London’s Dub Club, in which he made new associations with active UK dub/roots producers such as Adrian Sherwood and Manasseh. Since 2000, he continues to travel the world as an established MC artist spreading out the positive message of Jah music.

Alpha Steppa (Steppas Records)
Alpha Steppa

“The son and nephew of respected dub heavyweights Alpha & Omega, Alpha Steppa has been surrounded by soundsystem and dubplate culture from a young age. Now a talented producer in his own right, his productions connect the dots between the music which he has grown up around and the new generation of UK bass music of which he is a part. His dubbed out style draws upon the sounds of his musical heritage, filtered through an exploration of the newer sounds of dubstep.” – KNOWLEDGE MAGAZINE

Queen Majesty (Deadly Dragon Sound)
Queen Majesty

As one of the four members of NYC’s Deadly Dragon Sound, Queen Majesty can be found bringing crates of 45s to their weekly Downtown Top Ranking parties that showcase Jamaican music or hosting the radio show “Jamaica Rock” on EastVillageRadio.com. As a reggae vinyl collector for 16 years, Queen Majesty never ceases to find rare selections in this vast genre.

Grand Ancestor Sound (Yola b2b Bakir)
Grand Ancestor

As the label head of Brooklyn record label Tuba NYC, Bakir is not only a dubstep producer and DJ, but also looks to support other artists making forward-thinking bass music. As a musician, Bakir has toured with the dubstep band Jazzsteppa as their trumpet player.

Hailing from our nation’s capital, Yola is dedicated to fostering the true sounds of bass music in the United States. Inspired by Jamaican sound system culture, Yola is always looking for new ways to stretch bass bins and induce widespread skanking. Yola utilizes rhythm and bass to create an audible experience never to be replicated.
