/// About the artists:

DJ CARTER VAN PELT hosts WKCR 89.9FM’s “Eastern Standard Time”, a Jamaican music program that airs live every Saturday from 6-10 a.m. The show highlights roots reggae of the ’70s and early ’80s, Rocksteady from the mid ’60s and Ska from the early ’60s. Carter also co-hosts the weekly Roots Rock Reggae party at Motor City Bar, and organizes the popular Coney Island Reggae Soundsystem parties, one of which SLF co-hosted this past summer.

K VIBES has been singing reggae professionally for nearly 20 years. She was one of the last of a new generation of Brooklyn-based reggae artists to record for iconic Jamaican record producer Clement “Coxsone” Dodd, scoring a cult-hit with “Frenemies” in 2001.

WILLOW WILSON was widely recorded at the height of Brooklyn’s digital reggae/dancehall era in the mid/late 1980s. His voice can be heard on dozens of recordings, including a full length self-titled LP, made primarily for Whitfield Henry’s prolific Witty’s label. His latest release, a cover of Bob Marley’s “Slave Driver” for Taitu Records, reveals his strong affinity for singer Dennis Brown.

SUPER HI-FI, whose sound combines elements of Afrobeat and Dub, is a five-piece collective that features members of Aphrodesia, Slavic Soul Party, People’s Champs, and the Blue Man Group.

About Afro-Dub Sessions:

AFRO-DUB SESSIONS is dedicated to the idea that Dub, born in Jamaica, and African musical styles like Afrobeat, Afropop and Afrofunk are natural partners in the origins of global dance music. Each month SLF explores these connections by hosting a different guest DJ specializing in Dub or African-influenced styles.

The first Afro-Dub Sessions kicked off at Rose Live Music on January 30, 2010, and since that time has featured the talents of Victor “Ticklah” Axelrod, Sal P of Liquid Liquid, Amir (of Kon and Amir), Deadly Dragon Sound, Subatomic Sound System, Bastard Jazz’s DJ DRM, Awesome Tapes From Africa, DJ Afro-Marc, Hahn Solo of Dub Is a Weapon, DJ Chicus of Redbud Records, Mr. Chatman, Victor Rice and more. ///

I’ll be rocking nearby where Dick Clark’s balls drop at Highbar in Midtown Manhattan. Still wondering what tune to drop at the stroke of midnight. Unfortunately, this will most likely not be a GURU / Gangstarr / Teena Marie type of crowd, but I can hope. If you’re looking for a posh spot to drop a grip of money for an open bar, food, feverous dancing to bad (and good) music played well, I’ve got the spot for YOU.

HNY!

/// This month, AFRO-DUB SESSIONS welcomes SAL P from the legendary early 80’s “No Wave” band LIQUID LIQUID for a featured DJ set. We’ll also have two live performances by SUPER HI-FI and sets by SLF resident DJs LINH and LIL TIGER. The party is FREE and starts at 10pm.

About the artists:

Best known as the lead singer and percussionist of the highly influential New York group LIQUID LIQUID, SAL P has been active in the NYC music scene for three decades. Liquid Liquid’s three groundbreaking EP’s from 1981-84 on 99 Records forged a template of minimalist funk, dub and world music mixed with punk energy that has been followed by countless bands. Famously, their song “Cavern” was used as the basis for Melle Mel and Grandmaster Flash’s hit “White Lines” in 1983. Liquid Liquid broke up in 1984 but reformed in 2008 and continues to perform. Since 1999, SAL P has hosted “Universal Sundays,” a regular party at various NYC nightspots featuring African and Caribbean music.

SUPER HI-FI, whose sound combines elements of Afrobeat and Dub, is a five-piece collective that features members of Aphrodesia, Slavic Soul Party, People’s Champs, and the Blue Man Group. ///
