Channel One Soundsystem

Channel One SoundsystemIt gives us great pleasure to welcome Channel One back to Wee Dub after they played the most memorable set of the 2014 edition. Their heritage reaches back to 1979, when Mikey Dread and his brother Jah T began to play at blues parties and local dances having spent many years under the watchful eye of their father, owner operator of the famous Admiral Bailey Sound. They chose the name Channel One in homage to the legendary Jamaican record label of the same name whose tunes featured heavily in those early selections.

Channel One’s mission is to break down barriers via reggae music, they have achieved this by playing new venues, new festivals and different countries, taking their unique sound to Brazil, Columbia, Australia, New Zealand, Israel, Turkey and all over Europe. Channel One also celebrated 30 consecutive years at the Notting Hill Carnival making them one of the must see soundsystems for attendees to Europe’s biggest street festival.
