TWO BIG SOUND: 7 Nights a Week
Holy Roller proudly presents more heat from Shottsmann TWO BIG SOUND, Part One: Seven Nights a Week is ready for viewing here for a limited time.
TWO BIG SOUND revisits the ‘platinum era’ of the UK sound system in which two sounds ruled, The mighty Saxon Studio sound and the legendary Sir Coxsone sound.
This film is a ruff cut history lesson with a difference, it is by no means the bible of the UK sound system, It doesn’t cover every facet of the sound system UK history, nor does it follow a timeline or chronology. What Two Big Sound does do, is uncover subjects rarely heard about in Black UK music history.
The film takes an earthy look into the lives and music passion of some of the pioneers within the Saxon and Coxsone massive, they who lived and breathed and affected sound system culture from the UK, Jamaica and the rest of the Reggae world.
Dancehall greats featured include; Trevor Sax, Jah Screechie, Levi Roots, Tippa Irie, Snr San, Jah Prento, Blacka Dread, Daddy Kernal, Philip Levi, Echo Minott, and Chris Peckings. available for viewing for the next month here on Holy Roller.
In memory of Smiley Culture, one of the UK ‘s Finest Pioneer MC Lyricists.
