We have also has joined forces with one of the early original protagonists Steve Rumney who runs the popular Facebook Group Raregroove Connoisseurs. Together we aim to recreate that original early 80s vibe that kicked off the whole movement in the unique space that is Elephant West. We have hand-picked 20 of some of the finest Rare Groove Record Collectors bringing them together for the first time to play across 10 hours. To maintain the authenticity we are bring together all the original elements of those first parties. We are bringing in exclusively for this event heavyweight Sound System Simple Tings, original Soul II Soul/Africa Centre MC E-Mix and Live Percussion by Andrew Sedman. There will also be original collectors and new release vinyl available to buy and heathly Caribbean food provided by Reggae Britannia Bistro.
Experience the music in an authentic environment recreating those original friendly parties that were some of the first to bring together people from all cultures and backgrounds dancing side by side.
