Dubs Full Hundred Event feat. Massive B (NYC) & Sentinel (Germany)
„Dubplates playing in Geneva tonight" - this will be the motto of a very special night at Halle W on Saturday, the 4th of February.
In times where soundclashes are on a decline and dubplates are getting played less and less at juggling dances, many fans of the authentic, hardcore soundsystem culture are desperately in need of events that highlight these special kind of songs.
After legendary editions of „Dubs Full Hundred" with first class clash-sounds and -selectors like David Rodigan, Mighty Crown or Bass Odyssey, the SENTINEL crew thought it's time to also represent the juggling side of the soundsystem business at their notorious dubplates-only event series.
Being one of the most active, most influential and most famous juggling sounds in the United States, with a radioshow on the most popular Hip Hop radio station in the world HOT97
, a collaboration with the video game blockbuster Grand Theft Auto, tons of hit songs, released on their label and events that attract thousands of people, MASSIVE B is definitely the best choice to be the first juggling sound to mash up a „Dubs Full Hundred" dance.
Other than the dub box of renowned clash-sounds, which soundclash fans know inside out, MASSIVE B's dubplate library is much more of a mystery.
Although it is well known, that Bobby Konders, Jabba and their crew sit on tons of great specials, they don't really expose them too often. Even less do they play strictly dubplate selections on a regular basis. Keeping this in mind, and remembering that Bobby Konders worked with every big artist in the Reggae business, some big surprises can be expected for that night.
However, it's not Massive B alone, that one should look forward to.
The past editions never saw Sentinel giving less than a top-notch performance themselves.
Since founded in 1998, the German Luger Sound piled up one of the greatest, deadliest and most exclusive dubplate-arsenals in Europe. With that being said, every soundsystem enthusiast should know, that this is event must not be missed.
