Sukh started listening to vinyl and attending Dub events at a young age and describes it as a life changing experience. “Seeing the vinyl spinning, and the vibes in the place – especially when the bass dropped on the sound system – it changed everything, I immediately knew this was the path for me.” Inspired by the energy, the spiritual upliftment and vibes within the Dub community, Sukh was determined to create his own contribution and started producing his own tunes by the age of 18, with the schooling of his uncle and Dougie Conscious Sounds.
With a clear goal of reaching 100 independent vinyl releases on his own label, Indica Dubs was founded and released its first vinyl in 2010 at the age of 20 and was quickly played by various Sound Systems such as Jah Shaka, King Shiloh, Channel One, King Earthquake and many more.
In 2011, Indica Dubs travelled to play outside of UK to play in Poland and since then has played in UK, Belgium, Switzerland, Netherlands, Sicily, Italy, France, Romania, Poland, Germany, Spain, Croatia, Czech Republic, Malta, Brazil, Mexico, Peru, Argentina, Chile, and more.
In 2015, Sukh built his own studio with the help and guidance of Dougie Conscious Sounds and Sukh’s uncle Sanj. The studio is fully equipped and available to use for singers wanting to record vocals, musicians wanting to record melodies and producers wanting to produce tracks.
In 2017, Sukh unleashed his latest project; the Indica Dubs Sound System. Sticking to the tradition, Sukh plays strictly vinyl and dubplate. The least to say about attending an Indica Dubs Sound System session is that it’s guaranteed to be a special experience with the most exclusive tunes being played straight from the Indica Dubs studio.
Indica Dubs has been producing some of the toughest releases and providing dubplates to his most influential sound systems. Collaborating with some of the best international Roots/Dub artists such as; Earl Sixteen, Danman, Culture Freeman, Danny Red, Alpha & Omega, Conscious Sounds, Chazbo, The Disciples, Vibronics and many more, his reputation at the forefront of the Dub scene keeps growing all over the world.
From strength to strength, Indica Dubs aims to continue pushing Roots/Dub music and making a positive impact on new, upcoming and young artists, and all supporters.
Claston Brooks, stage name Danman aka Sunny Voice is a veteran musician and singer who has covered the music scene on a local, regional national and international basis for over 20 years. Born in St. Elizabeth, Jamaica, he migrated to the UK in 1967 at the tender age of 11. The first stop in the UK for the young artist was London, where he lived and attended the Slay Brook High School in Harlsden, for 4 years before moving to Huddersfield and finished schooling at Fartown High. Danman played bongo drums for revival church in Jamaica, during his childhood and is no new comer, when it comes to music.
However, it wasn’t until 1995 that he got his first experience of working in a recording studio. Upon enquiring about an advertisement, he was given the opportunity to record two of his own tracks free of charge, in a recording studio at the Hudawi Centre in Huddersfield. One of the songs recorded during Danmans first studio experience, placed him in third place in a Talent Competition, held at the Deighton Centre, Huddersfield in 1995. Iration Steppas Sound System was the next adventure for Danman and this adventure has led to the releasing of the artist's first 10” vinyl, entitled Too Much War.
In the recent years Danman has been working closely with producer / label / sound system; Indica Dubs. Together Danman and Indica have been touring worldwide and produced some of the most heavyweight releases including "Righteous Man" and "The Wisest Live Long". As well as exclusive dubplates over the past few years, such as "Satta Massagana" and a lot more.
Masego soundsystem is a handbuilt roots and dub soundsystem collective based in Rotterdam, Netherlands. Taking inspiration from the original Jamaican and United Kingdom soundsystem culture they have been active since 2009 as selectors going by the name of Original Dub Radix.
After a couple of years playing various events they felt the need for a strong link in their own hometown. They started to organize events in Rotterdam and worked with King Shiloh Soundsystem, Jah Shaka, Jah Tubbys world soundsystem, Moa Anbessa, Dubkasm, Mad Professor, Imperial Sound Army, Rise and Shine soundsystem, Young Warrior, Gussie P, Nomadix, Subzulu, Joseph Lalibela, Nish Wadada, Murray Man, Jah Version, Black Omolo, Jah Rootz, Lyrical Benjie, Justice soundsystem and many more.
While hosting various successful events in and around Rotterdam and being booked on festivals in the Netherlands and abroad they never stopped working on their own soundsystem. With a burning passion for the culture, the roots and the dub they saw the moment their soundsystem came alive and with that, the birth of a new name. Masego means Blessed in the Tswana language, the name reflects to the mission and the passion of JAH music. Now armed with their 6 scoop soundsystem they continue their works, spreading the message of Rastafari itinually.
