Culture Yard are truly honoured to have Brixtons Sir Coxsone Sound System at The Ibex venue in Stockwell/Brixton along side in Unity New Era Sound System & Roots Shed.
The legendary UK soundman & record producer, Lloyd Coxsone, began his career in the sixties, soon after arriving from Jamaica. He was one of the first soundmen to play at West End clubs like Tiles and the Roaring Twenties, where a generation of British pop stars like the Beatles, Rolling Stones and Elton John first heard the music of Jamaica. Coxsone then dominated the seventies, when Bob Marley and Dennis Brown were
among his closest allies, as heard on unforgettable dub-plates from that era. Lloyd is an elder statesman with more than fifty years’ history behind him, but he knows there’s still a place in the music for those who are young at heart and willing to embrace change. After several ill-fated reunions with past members Lloydie now has a new crew working alongside him, and who can help him replenish his legacy for reggae
audiences of today. Culture B and Felix Irie are well known to reggae fans on the south coast, where they’ve been performing at reggae events since the mid-nineties.
Culture B is of Caribbean heritage although he grew up in West London, where he served his dancehall apprenticeship on sounds like Foundation, Prince Melody, One Love and I Spy. After honing his mic skills he studied electronics and became proficient in sound technology. He’s recently designed and built his own 35k sound-system, and has also worked with a cross-section of London-based reggae producers and soundmen, including Reggae Roast, Channel One, Aba Shanti and the jungle specialist Jacky Murda.
DJ Felix is the son of well-known reggae journalist, John Masouri. He too, was raised in a musical environment – a world that he’s since made his own by hosting club nights, promoting gigs, compiling albums for record companies and mastering the art of playing reggae music for every occasion.
The sound-system that Sir Coxsone uses is unique, since it's the only true stereo analogue system in the UK. A completely original and brand new concept, it must be seen and heard to be believed and is tailor-made to provide the perfect sound system experience at indoors or outdoors events, whether festivals, carnivals, parties and clubs.
This revolutionary design was created by Culture B in association with some of Europe's leading audio specialists such as Allen & Heath, Mostec and ClearSounds in the UK; Clarke-Tech in Germany and Benidub in Spain.
The tops are based on an Electro-Voice line ray system, which is today's leading sound system technology and they're powered by Electro-Voice amplifiers that cover the full voice spectrum. This means there's no unwanted distortion, and this enhances the clarity and clearness of the tops and midrange alike.
The mid-bass section is designed by ClearSounds, one of the leading speaker cabinet builders in the world. ClearSounds are based in the UK, and also build cabinets for sounds like Young Warrior and Iration Steppers.
Now we come to one of the most important ingredients, the bass. The boxes are designed by Culture B in collaboration with ClearSounds to throw bass for as long as you can hear it, powered by Labgruppen amps.
Culture B and ClearSounds again combined to design the bass scoop boxes, which are custom-built for outdoor, as well as indoor use. Again powered by Labgruppen amps, they deliver 27,000 watts to the bass cabinets, which sounds like nothing you have ever heard before.
The pre amp is co-designed by Culture B and Mostec of London, who build sound equipment for the likes of Channel One and Young Warrior.
