Sound The System

“Sound the System” with Slipmat Records is a new regular show exploring Jamaican Sound System Culture of the past 60 years. From Kingston to Notting Hill, Rocksteady to Dancehall and Coxsone Dodd to Mungo’s Hi-Fi! A full hour of Reggae that’s meant to be played LOUD!

Mat Oliphant – owner of Slipmat Record Store in West Kirby has been playing with Systems, at Festivals and alongside some of Reggae’s biggest names for the past 10 years as well as running his own regular club nights around the country. A few of the artists include, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Dennis Bovell, Don Letts, Iration Steppas, Prince Fatty, Mungo’s Hi-Fi, Horseman, David Rodigan, Norris Man, Little Roy, Macka B and General Levy. He now runs “Skankin Sundays” on the 1st Sunday of every month at The Wild Inn, West Kirby – the Wirral’s only monthly reggae night.

It’s a festive end-of-the-year special!
So Mat has enlisted the help of Melodic’s very own selector extraordinaire – King Toby (In Fine Style) and as if that wasn’t enough… one of Merseyside’s most sought after Funk/Soul & Reggae DJ’s is also along for the ride – Dig Vinyl’s Elliot Hutchinson (Chapel of Wax).

It’s back to back to back dub and reggae selections for 1 whole hour!

Mat says “Thanks for listening this year – here’s to 2023!”
