DUB SMUGGLERS RECORD STORE PARTY @ Eastern Bloc Records
Daytime on Saturday 5th November

We’ve been out in the cold for a while now, nowhere to hang our hat, no place to call our own. Then along came MANTRA WAREHOUSE and now thats all changed! We are BACK ONCE AGAIN on a night that celebrates someone who tried to blow up a rather well known building… We’ve took that notion and we’re runnin’ with it! To celebrate our RETURN we decided to invite our pal THE BUG to come and MASH UP the place with one of the best shows and experiences we saw this SUMMER! We’re absolutely buzzing at the opportunity for the first in MANCHESTER to bring to you THE BUG featuring MISS RED presents ACID RAGGA

We’re bringing in all the lights and what not to celebrate the end of the world as THE BUG & MISS RED set the night off with a BANG! This isn’t your parent’s second coming of the summer of love acid. This time there will be no smiley faces, no ecstasy, and no future. The world is truly fucked and Kevin Martin can always be relied on to soundtrack armageddon. This dystopian acid takes influence from pioneers like Plastikman, Phuture’s “Cocaine/Your Only Friend”, Aphex Twin etc… and twists it into Kevin’s own perverted take on classic dancehall. Harkening back to when “Sleng Teng” refined Jamaican music as we know it, the Acid Ragga imprint will forever scar the face of raggamuffin reggae.”

We will also be celebrating our return with a RECORD STORE PARTY @ EASTERN BLOC RECORDS (Northern Quarter) in the daytime, as we play through a whole heap of VINYL in celebration of all things REGGAE & DUB! So make sure you pop by and if you’re planning on buying some vinyl then get down early before we get all the good ones!

Lookin’ Fresher than Fresh..!

We’ve sorted our merchandise gnomes out and got ’em back on the case with some new merchandise and some different colours of the ole favourites. We were going to be stocking a whole range of bikinis and men’s swim wear but fortunately the British summer ruined all that!

Lookin’ Back..!

Last year we were lucky enough to do the TELERAMA FESTIVAL in Paris. It was a wicked weekend with visits to the Transport Police, late Euro Tunnels and a one way system that seemed to take us backwards, not forwards! Check the video below as it sums up the trip!
