With their massive tower of sound and prolific record label Dub-Stuy continually pushes sound system culture forward stateside and beyond.

>JAHDAN BLAKKAMOORE Born in Georgetown, Guyana and raised in Brooklyn, NY, Grammy Nominated Singer-Songwriter Jahdan Blakkamoore has long made a name for himself as a gifted and inspiring Reggae/Dancehall/Hip Hop/Dubstep artist — both nationally and internationally. His music has been described as “Urban World Music with a message.”
>DJ MADD (Roots & Future, Cosmic Bridge, ZamZam Sounds)
Hungarian-born Peter Simon has been writing music since his early teens, scoring his first vinyl release in 2008. Highly acclaimed for his WAR series of white label releases, he quickly made the connection between underground bass music and the Jamaican reggae sound.
Setting up his own imprint 'Roots & Future', he continues building up a diverse following who love the old school dubwise sounds with bone-shaking bass and the low end of the sonic spectrum.
>BENT BACK SOUNDS was founded in 2009 in Rennes (France) by Lo and Simon. Passionate about the 80's era of reggae, they've collected rare records, cut original dubplates. in 2011, Lo relocated to Brooklyn, NY and decided to move forward and produce his own records.
After a first release was pretty well received in the community — staring Johnny Osbourne and Devon Clarke — they've decided to continue collaborating with established jamaican artists (King Kong, Echo Minott, Ranking Joe...) but with an intention of promoting upcoming artists (Jay Spaker, Fari DiFuture, JonnyGo Figure...).
Bent Backs DJ set features a unique selection of rare records, exclusives dubplates, unreleased productions and could include any singer who appears on the catalog. Expect a shower of vibes!
