Nice Up! Summer Soundclash

The Big Chill Presents...


SERIAL KILLAZ (Congo Natty records)
JAH SCREECHY ("Walk & Skank"
ADAM PRESCOTT ("On A Dubstep Tip")
plus upstairs
DUB CHRONICLES with DISORDA (Suspect Packages)

Saturday 30th July

The Big Chill House 257-259 Pentonville Road, King's Cross, N1 9NL

The Big Chill Presents is back this July welcoming legendary London promoters NICE UP! to the helm. Following their massive birthday bonanza blow out on the terrace last month, the crew guarantee to throw the rowdiest party you will not want to miss!

SERIAL KILLAZ (Congo Natty records)
Officially the jungle legends remixers of choice, the Serial Killaz have steadily built a reputation as some of the best producers out there. From remixes of Congo Natty’s classics “Junglist” and “Wardance”, these guys have seen massive support from DJs such as DJ Hype, Nicky Blackmarket, Kenny Ken and Micky Finn. Recently signed to Congo Natty’s label, the future is looking very very bright for this duo. This is not only a rare London appearance for them, but a debut appearance at the Big Chill House.

Quite simply…LEGENDS in the game, Rodney P has been repping hip-hop in the UK since day one as half of seminal rap duo London Posse. Many cite them as the first rappers to use the English tongue rather than emulate the US. Daddy Skitz is one of the 2nd wave originators, pushing the boundaries of UK hip hop during the mid 90s with his massive selling album “Countryman” and huge singles with Roots Manuva and Skinnyman amongst many others. Together they held down a long running show on 1Xtra and continue to smash crowds at clubs and festivals together across the globe.

Perhaps one of the highest charting UK reggae artists in the last 20 years, Jah Screechy’s massive 80s hit “Walk & Skank” was sampled by rave act SL2 for their international smash “On A Ragga Tip”. An original soundboy and DJ with the Coxson Sound back in the 70s, Screechy has shared the mic with superstars such as Dennis Brown, Barrington Levi, Super Cat, Frankie Paul, Sugar Minott, Junior Reed, Delroy Wilson, Josey Wales, Half Pint and many many more. A true UK legend.

One of the new wave of dubstep producers following the lineage of roots reggae and dub, Adam has been making waves since his debut release on NICE UP! records “On A Dubstep Tip”, by no coincidence an update of Screechy’s aforementioned classic, but also featuring verses from Dynamite MC. Adam is definitely one to watch, and we’re excited for his debut at the House.

Head honcho and top dog at the NICE UP! empire Shep made his name giving the reggae treatment to tracks by artists such as MIA, Damian Marley, The Gossip, Gorillaz and Adele to name but a few. His Cut Ups, Bruck Ups & Muck Ups mixes have landed him in the top 10 compilations of 2009/2010 at Rough Trade, as well as a permanent place at the top of Juno’s bestseller charts. Just as adept spinning hip hop & reggae as he is dubstep, drum & bass and house, he always manages to NICE UP! any dancefloor.

Upstairs, UK hip hop supplier and stalwart of the UK scene Disorda brings his Dub Chronicles vinyl selection - only the finest roots, reggae, dancehall and dub.

Rodigan vs Supergold

Another soundclash tape from the archives, this one finds Mr Ram Jam Rodigan up against Supergold in Houston, Texas, June 1999.
Lots of killer dubs laid down in the one for one, Cocoa Tea's 'Go Home Soundboy' conteracted with Delroy Wilson's 'Won't You Go Home' being a personal highlight. And Rodigan's Prince Buster dub of 'Hard Man Fi Dead' kills it... Lots of one liners worth checking too, Pancho of Supergold 'big up all my British crew inside the house, easy English'... and the best of all 'mi gwan lick Rodigan in im bal'ead wid some Freddie Mcgregor', priceless. Enjoy it! Download > Side A and Side B
