THAT LOCO SOUND PRESENTS SKITZ & RODNEY P at Chippenham & District Constitutional Club Sun 27 August 2017 from 2pm-2am

That Loco Sound is hosting a 12 hour day and night "Jerk and Twerk" Reggae BBQ on bank holiday Sunday in August to celebrate Soundsystem Culture, Jamaican Food, Dancing and Underground Music.

We are privileged to have UK underground music royalty in the form of Daddy Skitz and Rodney P headlining this unique event. Rodney P is widely acknowledged as the Godfather of UK Rap. Inspiring a whole generation of British emcees and producers by being the first to rap in his authentic London accent and produce a home-grown Hip Hop reggae vibe that is distinctly rooted in the UK. Following the international success of London Posse, Rodney P has enjoyed one of the most esteemed and perpetual careers in UK hip hop to date. Recognized as Britain's most eligible candidate for Hip-Hop ambassador; indeed for many his name is synonymous with UK Hip-Hop. Skitz gained recognition as a homegrown Hip Hop producer fusing the rawness of UK emcees with solid production and distinctively Jamaican influenced baselines. His first album Countryman won Hip Hop album of the year and catapulted rappers such as Est?elle, Roots Manuva and Skinnyman into the limelight. Joining forces they championed the UK bass heavy rap scene, produced the first ever track played on BBC1Xtra and through their own flagship rap show Original Fever spread the message worldwide. Both with deep discographies they have performed from Africa to Australia and everywhere inbetween. Supporting the likes of Jay-Z and Kanye West, performing on huge stages and renown for smashing parties, clubs and festivals with their reggae tinged bass driven sets. Never ones to follow fashion or bow to musical fads, genre boundaries are broken, templates and formula are pushed to the side. Rodney and Skitz carve out their own distinct pathway both as independent artists and as a team. One where quality music and passion shine through.

The days proceedings will be hosted by our very own Loco Sound original Mr. Klemit who excels not only as an MC and host but as a "Strictly Vinyl" DJ and if you have ever been to one of our events you will understand why he is loved so much. After years on the music scene in a live band and DJ capacity he remains a firm favorite/local hero and is going from strength to strength in his musical endeavourers.

We have huge musical support from local talent and Reggae collectives from further a field to make this already special occasion something the town will remember for years.

Coming out of Bristol, DJ's Delta and Ed Fluffy from the Shalimar Sound are known for their love of Roots, Rockers and Dub Reggae and are no strangers to rocking dancefloors all over the city. A truly authentic vibe and a history lesson in Reggae should be expected. 

Our good friends and Reggae Dons "Ragga Dee" and Steppin Razor will making the Journey from Plymouth to bless our ones and twos with a special back to back set. Not only does this duo smash any dancefloor or festival across the country but they still have time to broadcast their "Ranking Vibes Radio Show" and promote countless nights across their city and beyond. A hard working team hugely respected in the Reggae and wider music community... We cannot wait to see what they have for us. 

Local Legend DJ Biggz has agreed to provide us with an exciting Dancehall/Reggae set which is guaranteed to get the girls whining and the boys skanking in true Bashment fashion. Better known for being resident to numerous clubs and all round musical badman, Biggz rams any dancefloor you are lucky enough to be near in multiple Bass related genres, a true music lover which translates into his performances. 

An international appearance from head honcho of Madrid bassed Watch Ya Lemonz Soundsystem and Record shop, Mr Lemonz will be here to bring the carnival vibe to our humble town. You will struggle to meet an idividual with as much knowledge, love and passion for Reggae Music as Mr Lemonz. Hosting and promoting the "Roots and Culture" event in Madrid as well as Guacamoyo Tropical and Bass events, he needs very little encouragement to string up his mighty Soundsystem and bring that chest thumping bass. 

Loco and Whitman (Loco Sound Veterans) would not miss out the chance to bring the vibes and shake the place as they always do. Whitman, a Hip-Hop and Bass enthusiast and Loco, a Reggae, Jamaican Bass and Jungle head come from humble beginnings spinning tunes in the Barber Shop and shaping their sound whilst putting on free nights and parties across the town. These guys will no doubt have something very special for us indeed.

A rare but very exciting addition to the line-up comes in the form of Muwookie. For years Muwookie has been producing awesome Liquidy, Jungley vibes and shot to success In 2010 - 2011 when he was noticed by DJ Bailey who had a show on 1xtra with a track called “Memories”. This pretty much did the rounds so to speak with all the DJ’s at 1xtra at the time and the last person to play Memories on 1xtra was Trevor Nelson. With a number of releases since on labels Stepping Forward Records, Liquid Drops and instinct Audio to name but a few Muwookie is a seasoned professional who I for one cannot wait to see. 

What kind of Soundsystem culture would it be without a huge stack of speakers to run all of these vibes on? Thanks to F8ality Soundsystem we will be shaking the place from early, this is not to be missed.

If all of this sounds like hungry work we have Jamaican Lunch providing a Caribbean BBQ. Amazing food to compliment the day's events.

In addition, we will also have a pop up vinyl shop to give the enthusiast and collectors a chance to take something home with them.

This is a ticketed event with families and children welcome. 

Children under 18 are free but will be accompanied by an adult and a curfew of 9pm applies to the under 18's. We have a selection of entertainment and goodies to keep the little ones happy as well as providing a unique and educational experience for all.


Over and out,

Team Loco
