Exciting news – we’re back and playing some records at a brand new night hosted by our good friends Dub Defenders!
It’s been a long hard forever, and we haven’t played any records live since November 2019. The good news is gigs are gradually starting to return and the better news for Chester is the Liverooms are running once more and Merseyside’s finest dub duo Dub Defenders are curating a brand new night – “Dub HQ”. The first night is on friday October the 8th and they’ve put together a heck of a line up.
If you don’t know about them already Dub Defenders have been leading the way for bass music in the Northwest for quite a few years now, lighting up club dancefloors and festivals. Check out their mixcloud page for a fistful of bass heavy and brilliant mixes. A few years ago they produced this outstanding session that earned them a slot supporting The Prodigy at the Liverpool Arena, you can also check out the set they played at that show. They’ve also appeared on various radio shows, with sessions all across Europe and a Desi Dancefloor mix for the legendary Punjabi Hit Squad on the BBC Asian Network. As well as all that in 2021 they’ve had time to form 2/3rds of CBM and release an album, as well as remixing the magnificent Dub Pistols. All of which is a long way of saying that this crew know what they’re doing and it’s great news they are going to be hosting a residency in Chester.
As you might expect they’ve cooked up an absolutely terrific line up for the Dub HQ launch event on Friday the 8th of October. The night will be hosted by outstanding vocal talent Dandy Dizzle. The Catch A Fire crew are making the trip from Yorkshire having previously lit up the Reggae Socials in Liverpool. In addition DJ’s from the UK’s best reggae festival Positive Vibration are on the line up, as well as Dub Deyah and Funkdub! We can’t wait to roll out some bass heavy heaters and already have an absolute stack of great new music to play!
Early bird tickets are available from the Liverooms and are an absolute steal. Get your skanking shoes on and we’ll see you there!
