420 Special 420 Special 420 Special 420 Special!!!!!

Vi har en speciel 420 gave til hele Christiania, vi kan nemlig præsentere Alpha & Omega sammen med sangeren Ras Tinny fredag d. 20. April på Musik Loppen. For os kan det næsten ikke blive større! Og den legendariske Christine Omega er klar på spille bas live til arrangementet. Glæd jer til super tung dub, på den tungeste fredag i 2018!

Siden 1990 har UK dub pionerene A&O arbejdet sammen med folk som Lee ‘Scratch” Perry, Jah Shaka og Gregory Isaacs. A&O er en roots dub duo der mixer både analog og digitale elementer, bestående af Christine Woodbridge og John Sprosen, som begge har spillet i forskellige reggae bands. De begyndte at arbejde sammen i midt 80erne og har siden opholdt sig både i London og Plymouth. De blev signet af Greensleeves Records som udgav deres egne A&O plader. Det blev startskudet til et samarbejde med Jah Shaka, som de leverede rytme tracks til. Til trods for at have arbejde sammen med flere store musikere fra hele verden, har de udviklet en lyd, der bliver beskrevet som “unik britisk” indenfor for dub musikken.
Albummet “Alpha & Omega Meets Ras Tinny ‘No Beginning No End’” (2016, Steppas Records) er en hyldest til den klassiske A&O lyd, og den illustrerer deres progressive tankegang samt deres karakteristiske anskuelse af reggae musik. De bruger unikke vokal opbygninger og forbløffende intelligent lyrik af den surinamesiske sanger Ras Tinny. Han er bedst kendt for samarbejdet med Dub Dynasty, Alpha Steppa og Alpha & Omega.

Ras Tinny udtaler:

“Jeg er Tinny, og jeg bor på Irelands vilde vestkyst. Jeg håber at den musik jeg spiller og de lyrics jeg skriver reflektere mit kald og de ældres lærdom ‘Jah hjælp I&I med at løfte de fattige ud af fattigdom og beskytte jordens klima. Så jeg håber vi mødes snart mellem lyden af bassen og trommeslagene – i en perfekt tilstand af kærlighed – Jah bless you.”

We have got a special 420 present to all Christiania; we bring to you Alpha & Omega feat. Ras Tinny Friday 20th of April at Musik Loppen. To us it almost can’t get any bigger or better! Be ready for massive and heavy dub, on the happiest Friday of 2018!

UK dub pioneers since 1990, A&O have worked with the likes of Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Jah Shaka and Gregory Isaacs. A&O are a roots dub duo that mix both analogue and digital elements, comprising of Christine Woodbridge and John Sprosen, both of whom had played in reggae bands previously. They began working together in the mid-1980s, splitting their time between their home towns of London and Plymouth, and issued their debut home-recorded cassette in 1988. They were picked up by Greensleeves Records, who acted as a parent company to the duo’s A&O label, and also worked with Jah Shaka, for whom they supplied rhythm tracks. Although they are strongly influenced by artists such as Lee “Scratch” Perry, King Tubby and Augustus Pablo, they have developed a sound that has been described as “uniquely British”.

Alpha & Omega Meets Ras Tinny ‘No Beginning No End’ (2016, Steppas Records) is a nod to the classic A&O sound yet illustrates A&O’s forward thinking and distinctive outlook on reggae music. Featuring the unique vocal stylings and astoundingly intelligent lyrics of Surinamese singer Ras Tinny. He is best known for his collaborations with Dub Dynasty, Alpha Steppa and Alpha & Omega, Ras Tinny says:

“ I am Tinny, living on the wild west coast of Ireland. I do hope that the music I play and the lyrics I write reflect my vocation and the teachings of my elders: ‘Jah help I&I to uplift the poor and Itect the environment’ And so I hope we will link soon, between the sounds of the bass and the drum beats – inna perfect love – Jah Bless you.”

“Enter a path few can follow, but many can appreciate. A studio or sound’s dub-plates are like a Shaolin monk’s sacred teachings. London-based Alpha & Omega take us into their world of mesmerising roots and divulge their exclusive ‘specials’.” Muzik
