The last time… we’re going back to the site of DJ Derek’s first-ever Oxford appearance a decade ago, and we’re making it a bit special. Featuring a very special live set from the great Susan Cadogan (all the way from Jamaica!), this will also be the final night of DJ Derek’s decade-long love affair with the people of Oxford. Earlybird tickets have sold out, and we’ve already had to move this one to the Academy from the Cellar due to demand. Don’t miss out!

LIVE & DIRECT FROM KINGSTON JAMAICA! ‘Hurt So Good’, ‘Nice & Easy’, ‘Piece Of My Heart’ – Susan Cadogan is one of the Caribbean’s best-loved singers. From the groundbreakers and hitmakers she recorded with Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry at the height of the seminal Black Ark madness through Top Of The Pops appearances and lovers rock classics, Susan’s recorded output has rarely been less than sensational over the years, and her live performances remain truly mesmerising. Onstage 9pm with a fantastic backing band in The Sidewalk Doctors – don’t miss this one-time only opportunity to catch a reggae great in Oxford.

DJ Derek’s final appearance behind a set of decks in Oxford. Derek has been gracing Skylarkin’ Soundsystem nights for the last decade, and is bowing out at last in order to (finally!) enjoy his well-earned retirement. Come along and dance one last time to the selector who has soundtracked some of the best nights of our lives.

Backing Susan and playing a special set of their own, perennial Skyarkin’ favourites and rocksteady dons The Sidewalk Doctors will move your hips and stir your soul.

One of the best young British reggae acts around, Mighty Leap feature the soaring vocal talents of Desta Zion Wilson and deep, soulful grooves. Arrive early!

The Count has been running Skylarkin’ Soundsystem in Oxford for 13 years, with DJ Derek a regular fixture over the past decade or more. Skylarkin’ Soundsystem nights will of course live on… but there’ll never be another DJ Derek.
