It’s an extra special affair this July, as Chant Down founder and selector Jesse I celebrates his 40th birthday in a reggae dancehall style. As well as Chant Down Sound’s signature up-to-the-time vibes, expect nuff classics from yesteryear, as More Fire residents Jesse I and Ras Crucial run through personal favourites from all eras – plus selections from guests Troublemekka and Armagideon Time.
To help make the event even more special, sound on the night will be provided once again by the custom-built Solidarity Soundsystem.
More Fire #203 takes place on Saturday 14th July at Bar 420 (420 Lonsdale St, Melbourne). Doors open at 10pm, with a cover of $15 or $10 concession and PBS members.
Chant Down’s Jesse I returns from Jamaica fully loaded and ready to blaze up Bar 420 once again! More Fire’s “Fully Loaded” dances have become a post-Jamaica-trip tradition, with residents Jesse I and Ras Crucial playing a new and exclusive dubplate showcase – tunes you literally won’t hear anywhere else in the world.
To keep the dubplate heat on, Chant Down will also be joined by very special guest Jahnny from Italy’s Pipeline Sound Crew – spreading positive vibes and flinging serious dubplates since 2007 – plus New Zealand’s dancehall warrior Rebel Bass, and Melbourne’s original Housewife’s Choice. Plus sound reinforcement on the night by the heavyweight Solidarity Sound System!
More Fire #204 takes place on Saturday 11th August at Bar 420 (420 Lonsdale St, Melbourne). Doors open at 10pm, with a cover of $15 or $10 concession and PBS members.
