On the 13th July 2013, four of the biggest sounds in London (Saxon International, Channel One, Reggae Roast and Unit 137) converge inna Brixton Town, joining forces for an unforgettable night of positive vibrations and high energy bass lines. Demonstrating the rich heritage of UK sound system culture from old to new Reggae Roast once again highlight the strength of the UK Dub movement and why they are currently running tings in London.
The Reggae Roast Jamdown sessions are famous for showcasing the best dubwise acts from across the globe at Plan B, arguably South London's best club venue.
