We are thrilled that, on the 21st April, Deptford Dub Club will host d’Oxman Special. Oxman is probably best known for his work with the Dub Vendor Allstars and the Soul Jazz Soundsystem. However Eddie’s been at the cutting edge since long time, he has his own show on Soho Radio, has produced and sold records with the best of them and has performed with luminaries like U Roy. Oxman has a massive collection to select from, does it with aplomb and is a great toaster. He’s currently tearing it up at the storied Rivoli Ballroom.
Expect music of Jamaican origin, of the highest order, played in Soundsystem style, throughout this celebratory session. To start the evening we will be welcoming the young lionesses Duppy Sista Sound to the wheels of steel. Expect a carefully chosen selection from the duo, they tore the place down in January and always play up a storm. Despite her youth, Duppy Sista Jazz is a stalwart of The Dub Club and was there on the opening night, 12 years ago; as well as our first night at The Fox, 6 years ago.
They’ll be followed by more of the semi live action, that The Club is famous for. Resident selector Soft Wax will be spinnin’ the rhythms, on the wheels of steel. On the mic there will be toasting and singjay action, live and direct, from the mighty Doc Murdoch. There will also be live instrumentation from our fresh, Horn Section, led by Tombone and featuring Natty of RaSamurai. There’ll be extra special guest vocalists too.
There will also be live mixes from the great Prince Fatty on the desk, throughout the session. We’re looking forward to another blinding evening inside, with the music piped out to the glorious garden too. Come on down to our celebration of the joys of spring and put on your dancing shoes.
