IRATION STEPPAS SOUNDSYSTEM & CALIBRE
IRATION STEPPAS SOUNDSYSTEM
The men in camo are back! As ever they're bringing the full soundsystem for maximum bass weight.
IRATION STEPPAS are one of the top dubwise sound systems in the world. Iration Steppas started out as a sound system in 1990, firstly just spinning dub plates, then making their own music. They have played all over the world as well as powering the legendary SUBDUB in Leeds and more recently DMZ/EXODUS in Leeds.
In their own words:
"It’s hard to explain… you’re gonna feel the power 'cos of heaviness in bass, you’re gonna see the uniqueness of a DJ chattin’ on a soundsystem, the sound effects itself is unique, the delivery of the sounds played to the crowd and the reaction from that and the niceness of just being in a cool, no trouble business vibe.
We like to keep it spiritual and uplifting really, because that’s what dub is about. It is an experience."
PLUS VERY SPECIAL GUEST...
Dominick Martin aka Calibre has been responsible for some of the most beautiful tracks in drum & bass to date and continues to drop jaws worldwide with his sublime and sultry productions.
From his first full length LP on Creative Source to his latest album "Even If" on his own label Signature, Calibre’s sound has progressed taking in elements of jazz, funk, dub, techno and more. Without doubt, his influence in drum & bass has been profound yet Calibre continues to evolve as an artist, exploring new techniques and styles in his music.
Having played all over the world from Belfast to Berlin and beyond, Calibre certainly knows how to captivate a crowd with sets that often feature his own exclusive tracks.
Calibre has released music on a diverse range of labels including CIA, 31 Records, Commercial Suicide, Liquid V, Bassbin, Ganja, Exit, Critical, Integral, Quarantine, Deep Medi and Digital Soundboy.
Calibre is far from a prolific DJ and prefers not to sacrifice valuable studio time in favour of extensive gigs abroad. He’s a highly capable selector behind the decks, however, the rarity of his appearances seems to make them all the more special.
This is NOT to be missed
