On Saturday 23rd March the D.D.C. features Tessa Pollitt. She’ll be spinning 100% Roots and Culture Reggae, in a Soundsystem style. Tessa was the bassie throughout the career of The Slits, whose seminal 70s LP “The Cut” was produced by Dub-master Dennis Bovell. Tessa draws from a deep love of the music and selects from a great collection, amassed back in the day. Slits vocalist Ari Up lived for a long time in JA and sent back nuff Dubplate and ting and Tess will be drawing on these too…wow.
Another of our amigos, Danny Dread, will also be putting the needle to the groove on the wheels of steel. Danny will need no introduction to regulars at The Deptford Dub Club, as he is a stalwart. He’s more widely know through his work with Jah Shaka, over many years. His sets are always wicked.
Late selection will come from the inimitable Clifford Junior. Clifford is a central member of the Reggae Roast crew and a well respected fixture on the London reggae scene. You name a venue where memorable ravin’ has happened in the last few years and Clifford’s probably played there. Clifford is a great friend of the D.D.C. and donates his Soundsystem to our annual festival.
Resident Soft Wax will also spinning. There’ll be the usual live instrumental and vocal in puts on the mic. with both Tessa and Waxy. Expect Tim Topcat on Sax and Wicked Will Roper on the Trumpet. Also live and direct will be our resident Singjay Doc Murdoch and Sandra. More talent “ than you could shake a stick at “, at the mighty Deptford Dub Club.
This will be a historic event, in this 40th anniversary year of “The Cut”; not to be missed. Don’t forget your dancing shoes; we expect a road block, so reach early.
