No Room For Squares Session 12 – Off The Beaten Track – African Head Charge (1986)
March 9 @ 19 h 00 min - 23 h 59 min
The Genre Defying listening session in full effect!
Out of the incredibile On-U Sound catalog African Head Charge really stood for itself for their forward thinking sound, that mixed industrial influenced dub with electonic music; their seminal sampling techniques added a deeper layer of connection with the percussive and chanting musical traditions from Africa and Jamaica. The record features contributions from Jah Wobble (Public Image Limited) and Skip McDonald (Sugarhill Gang/Tackhead) and Adrian Sherwood´s production- its legacy still reverberates in the UK bass scene, heavily influencing the production of labels like Hyperdub and Tectonic.
Stay for a chat afterwards and enjoy a massive selection of ON-U Sound released played on the fantastic Rhinoceros set up!
The bar opens at 19:00 – the needle drops at 20:30 sharp. We invite you to fully enjoy the records in silence.
Rhinoçéros Bar is a small and cosy Jazz joint, strongly dedicated to the highest quality of sound, wines and drinks.
