DUBCASTING with CHANNEL ONE SOUND SYSTEM

feat live

SOOTHSAYERS

Afro-dub Jazz

 

Songlines: “One More Reason might finally win them the mainstream attention they deserve….Rootsy and slick , global and local, this is a party album with it’s head in the bass bin.”

 

Uncut Magazine: **** ” One of the finest slices of a Anglo Carribean fusion since The Specials in their prime……artfully mixing in funk and Afrobeat to their deep dub”

 

Metro (London): “Afro-dub at its most infectious, an energetic burst of musical virtuosity that is both conscious and peppily propulsive”

Mojo **** ‘A heady sonic brew, crafted in the best jazz tradition by drawing respectfully from disparate elements…the album is full of irresistibly funky grooves, intricate percussion, virtuoso vocals, elaborate guitar lines and swinging horns, with meaningful lyrics and uncommon vocal arrangements raising the overall musical standard one level higher.’

 

The Guardian: ‘Thrilling harmonies…seriously infectious dance floor grooves…goose bump inducing vocals.’

 

Jazzwise: **** ‘Tangled Roots shows how exciting and diverse things get when you hold a mirror up to London’s musical melting pot.’

 

BBC Radio 3: ‘The eclectic blend works perfectly with the sound being organic and unique. It reflects the diverse cultural influences in modern urban Britain …….”

 

Last.fm: “Soothsayers played this at Paradise Gardens in Victoria Park, June 2009. To say their live performances are ‘blistering’ is an understatement. This is absolutely one of the best live performances I’ve seen, comparable only to bands like De La Soul or AWB in their ability to whip up a crowd and get them feeling awesome. …go and see them!

 

Froots Magazine: “ uniquely representing how pan African music has influenced modern Britain”

Album Review: Soothsayers – Tradition [Wah Wah 45s; June 2018]

Tradition was released on the Wah Wah 45s label in June 2018 by South London based Soothsayers, traditionally renowned for their modernised 1960s afrobeat and contemporary jazz fusion mashups, coupled with big band brass sections and cutting-edge vocal harmonies. Ironically though, Tradition is far from traditional. Idris Rahman’s lyrical themes…

Playlist: Soothsayers (May 2017)

On the eve of their new EP (Speak to My Soul) launch at Battersea Arts Centre part of Borderless festival, Soothsayers compiled for us a playlist illustrating the roots and development of their sound.   “Jazz, reggae,…
