Revelation Sound present Dougie Consious & Danman - Cyprus Avenue Cork - Friday 11 Jan 2019

Dougie Conscious & Danman upon the Revelation Sound System

Introduction To Dougie Conscious
CONSCIOUS SOUNDS
Independent UK Dub / Roots label and studio run by Producer / DJ Dougie Wardrop.

Dougie Wardrop started his career in music production with humble means while running Dub Shack Records at Camden lock market. Inspired by early digital steppers such as Warrior stance by Dread & Fred and Seventh seal – Sound Iration (Manasseh), his first attempt at mixing was the instrumental Stepping time – recorded on 4-track at Nick Manasseh´s house. It was released under the name Centry in sept 90 and became the launch of his imprint Conscious Sounds.

Getting record shops to stock the tune turned out to be a hassle at first, but after receiving extensive play by Jah Shaka the sales picked up and gave encouragement for further releases. After working with Manasseh under the name Centry on the labels first three singles, Centry was later to consist of Nigel Lake, Chris Petter and Dougie. The money made from the releases was invested in a 8-track and premises was shifted to Nigel Lake´s house where it stayed for 2-3 years. The studio has since then found a permanent address and advanced further with time.

Operations under various names such as Bush Chemists, East meets West, Messenjah, Dub Specialist, Hydroponics and named Centry have included numerous collaborators. The most frequently used has been Bush Chemists, consisting of Dougie, Chazbo and Culture Freeman. Messenjah was Dougie and his apprentice engineer Prento, who later on turned his attention to other forms of music after learning the trade at the studio. Mixing in oriental flavours to the steppa-dish – the East meets West-project was a collaboration between Dougie and Hiroshi who after working a while at Conscious Sounds, overstayed his visa and got deported back to Japan.

Inspired by the pioneers in dub, Dougie has never been shy to experiment but the core of the music has for the greater part been steppers. Running for over 15 years, the label has survived the trials. A deal was struck with Dubhead-label in late 90´s for the manufacturing and release of music being produced at the studio. The deal was abandoned when unpaid royalties and opinions on the direction of the music lead to disputes.

Conscious Sounds is now once again a independent label in the hands of Dougie and has in recent years seen something of a new golden age. New means of exposure through the internet has meant that a new market has opened. With a new generation of dubheads taking a interest in the music, the demand has been supplied for re-releasing long out of stock material and the side-label Lovedub has also been launched to feature tunes and remixes previously only heard as dubplates. A string of 10 inches of constant high standard has seen the light in recent times and the inspiration to create new music seems to be running high as ever.






DANMAN Sunnyvoice

Introduction to DANMAN
Jamaican artist based in England, he started his carreer almost forty years ago with a sound system named Prince Tubby. He grew up with a mic in his hand, and lyrics in his head he always had the facilites to ride riddims. He's part of the original sound system school, and mostly influenced by the foundation artists like Johnny Clarke, Linval Thompson, Barry Brown, Michael prophet and many more.

With his first album, he delivered a strong message against Babylon systems and found the right balance between roots, dub and culture. For the last couple of years he has been the micman for the legendary Iration steppas sound system.

Revelation Sound System
Cork's Revelation Sound System are now twenty two (1997-2019) years hosting sound-system events around Ireland & Europe. On a visual and technical level Revelation Sound have made leaps in terms of reproducing with superb quality, the best amplified sound of dub & bass music. Revelation are consistently upgrading their sound system, combining analogue and digital technologies married with a full spectrum of speakers, scoops and bass bins to reproduce a rich heavy roots sound that you can feel as well as hear.

REVELATION meets ROOTICAL - Friday 16th March 2018


REVELATION SOUND SYSTEM
Cork's Revelation Sound System are now twenty one years hosting sound-system events around Ireland & Europe. On a visual and technical level Revelation Sound have made leaps in terms of reproducing with superb quality, the best sound reproduction of dub & bass music. Revelation are consistently upgrading their sound system, combining analogue and digital technologies married with a full spectrum of speakers, scoops and bass bins to reproduce a rich heavy roots sound that you can feel as well as hear.

Revelation’s sound has been the introduction to deep bass and conscious music for many over the last two decades, promoting some of the top producers and artists on the national and outer-national dub scene. At Revelation Sound System events, focus is a combination of early roots classics up to the latest upcoming releases, peppered with vocals, live instruments and MC's.

ROOTICAL SOUND SYSTEM
“Who feels it knows it,” is how Jason of Rootical Sound System describes the feeling of a big sound system. Jason says he has always thought big when it comes to his setup. Jason began playing in clubs, and used a friend’s PA where possible. In 1999, a UK crew called Armagideon Sounds played Dublin and Galway and their set-up spurred him on to build his own.

“It’s something a bit different to the normal nightclub experience. The system is custom built to deliver the music as it should be heard and felt. Live MCs are there to interact with the crowd and draw them into the vibes. Nothing is rehearsed, we just build a vibe with the crowd & try to ensure everyone has a nice time.”
