Un ospite che abbiamo fortemente voluto, direttamente da Birmingham, Simon "Dj Tippa". Come al solito, lo sapete, al Sombero vengono dj che spaccano, che non sono mai venuti in Italia, e Simon spacca, ve lo assicuro. Ma basta inutili parole, il 23 marzo faremo palare solo la musica!!!!!
I first started dj ing in the early nineties mainly scooter type events, playing a wide variety of ska & soul sounds. Then I was resident dj in a Mod Club in Birmingham for 5 years playing ska soul & r&b, all the club classics. Late nineties I used to play the very early Reggae Train nights on I.O.W. scooter rally and played the last one last year. Also I was one of the original Scorcher djs back in the late nineties .I now only play a few times a year but still pack a box of delights to entertain, old favorites such as Uncle Joe, Hold Down, Dig It Up, and I have been fortunate enough to Dj with The original Skatalites again many years ago, on several occassions. Now I mainly play Reggae and Rocksteady with the odd choice Ska selection now and again . But lets wait till the night it will be real dynamite from all involved .
All time top five from what I used to play would be a tough one. Here's five from way back.
Near To You - Yvonne Harrison
Johnny Pram Pram - Derrick Morgan
Budget 69 - Edwards All stars
Habits - The Wailers
Trust The Book - The Versatiles
