Keen observers of bass music happenings cannot fail to have noticed the slew of releases emanating from Manchester in recent times. Indeed for clubbers under the age of 25 it’s said to be commonly believed that on the Eighth Day, Dub Phizix took a break from reconfiguring the one-way system in the Northern Quarter to invent an audible frequency beneath 20hz.

This Friday night at The Cellar, Count Skylarkin doffs his famous pork pie hat towards the Warehouse City with one of its brightest up and coming DJs (Salford-based producer Alex 19 from Wigan) and a timeless classic (Mr Scruff and Aim mic-man Kwasi Asante). Bring your best bass face.

REGGAE CHRISTMAS 2015

NEW VENUE!
Two decades since some bright spark thought to book Mackating to play The Zodiac on Christmas Eve, Reggae Christmas arrives at the Cowley Road’s premier independent live music venue in 2015 – The Bullingdon, fully refurbed with heavy new soundsystem and a wicked new layout.

TWO ROOMS…
Round these parts we spend our Christmas Eves skanking to roots, rocksteady, reggae, dancehall and rub-a-dub, and we’ve been doing it for nigh on 20 years. If you’ve been lucky enough to have been, you’ll know. If you haven’t, well now’s your chance.

LAID BLAK
Laid Blak have rocked the Reggae Xmas crowds so many times that they need no introduction. Smash hits like ‘Bristol Love‘ and the ubiquitous ‘My Eyes Are Red‘ have seen the 7-piece propelled onto the airwaves and around the world. This summer alone saw them slaying packed houses at Boomtown and Glastonbury. Guaranteed to get the room JUMPING. Do not miss.

DESTANATION DJs
Oxford’s original rebel sound – Daniel Norland and special guests nice up the dance with roots reggae and rub-a-dub.

COUNT SKYLARKIN
Trojan selector, Wailers warm-up and purveyor of the best beats in the business. Co-creator of the world-famous Disco Shed, curator of Skylarkin’ Soundsystem and The BIG TEN INCH. Crate-digger. Luddite. Party starter. Story-teller. Maniac.

DJ BUNJY & MC JOE PENG
Founding members of the great Laid Blak, Joe Peng and ‘Bunjy’ Anderson spin bass-heavy bangers and rare dancehall treasures.

STEAMIN’ JOHN DASH & KEETH ULETT
Dasher & Wazzy nice up the front bar with funk, rare groove, hip hop and more.

Christmas Eve at The Bullingdon, Cowley Road, Oxford | 9pm-2am
£5 earlybird/£8 adv/£6 before 10pm/£10 door

Mighty Leap make a welcome return to Oxford, after shutting down Womad Festival this summer with their rapturously received collaboration with The Ragga Twins and Wrongtom. Featuring the jaw-dropping vocals of Bermudian singer Desta Zion Wilson, Mighty Leap deal in deep basslines, soulful melodies, sweet harmonies and a liberal squeeze of dancehall magic. Plus Indecision and friends throwing down speakerbox rattlers from the top till the very last drop.

The mighty DUB SMUGGLERS make their Skylarkin’ debut at The Cellar. The crew’s Manchester nights at Antwerp Mansions are the stuff of legend – always ram-jammed, with people travelling the length and bredth of the land to squeeze in. Further afield, the boys have rocked Beatherder, clashed with Mungos Hifi and Iration Steppas and, famously, made The Beach stage at Outlook and Dimensions festivals in Croatia sound AMAZING. They play heavy-duty dancehall, dub and roots and (best of all) they’re bringing their famous handmade bassbins. Aided and abbetted by Count Skylarkin at the controls.
