A seriously good night of Jamaican R&B, ska, rocksteady, reggae and roots is served up in north London at the end of the month.
Musical Fever is a one-off event on Friday February 28th that brings the whole gamut of Jamaican music fans together in one place. The organisers have pulled out the stops to get some heavyweight DJs on board. Penny Reel has been involved in the Jamaican music scene since buying his first Bluebeat single in 1961, and is best known as the journalist who wrote the Observer Station columns in the music press. Joining him on the decks is Japanese collector Tommy Skataro, best known for releasing newly discovered Prince Buster-related material, and his Rock-a-Shaka label and podcasts. The soundsystem for this night is provided by Gladdy Wax.
Tickets for Musical Fever are £6 and available to purchase from two London record stores: Dub Vendor in Clapham and Honest Jon's on Portobello Road. You can pay on the door but it will cost more.
@ The Others, 6-8 Manor Road, Stoke Newington, N16 5SA
