Jah Shaka

Sound system culture might have begun in Jamaica. But it feels right at home in south London whenever dub legend Jah Shaka is around.

Jah Shaka is named after the Jamaican word for God and a notorious Zulu warrior. He became a favourite among reggae heads in the late 70s for his high octane sets and spiritual message. An alumnus of the Freddie Cloudburst sound system, which shook the walls of Brixton clubs in the early 70s, his nights fizzed with an energy that would later influence everyone from The Slits to DMZ. Basement Jaxx have described their experience of the Jah Shaka sound system as their best ever night out. As you will be able to witness at Revolutions In Sound, rightfully so.
