Tro­jan Records, home to the best artists in ska, rock­steady, reg­gae and dub music, is turn­ing 50 and they, along with the mighty Tro­jan Sound Sys­tem, Den­nis Alca­pone, Mad Pro­fess­or, Don Letts, Benny Page, and Sweetie, cel­eb­rate this monu­ment­al achieve­ment at Elec­tric Brix­ton on 24 March.

Known back in the day for intro­du­cing reg­gae to a glob­al audi­ence with the likes of Des­mond Dek­ker, the Maytals and Bob & Mar­cia, Tro­jan Records are still the untouch­able torch bear­ers for Jamaic­an and world music in the UK.

Their pres­ence in the music industry is tan­gible, and their artists have gone down in music his­tory.

Formed in 2004, Lon­don based Tro­jan Sound Sys­tem are an insti­tu­tion in Sound Sys­tem cul­ture and have toured the globe to spread their mes­sage of love and unity through the power of ska, rock­steady, roots reg­gae, dub, dance­hall and UK bass music.

Den­nis Alca­pone, one of the ori­gin­al DJs, is a true vet­er­an of reg­gae and dance­hall. With a career span­ning dec­ades, his appear­ance list reads like a who’s who of reg­gae, and with Alca­pone man­ning the tables, expect the dance floor to come alive under the addict­ive sounds of skank­ing gui­tars, driv­ing bass, and singable tunes.

Mad Pro­fess­or has col­lab­or­ated with a dizzy­ing amount of not­able artists, includ­ing reg­gae artists such as Lee “Scratch” Perry, Sly and Rob­bie, Pato Ban­ton, and Jah Shaka — and that’s only nam­ing a few. His skills are unmatched and his sets are always on point.

BBC6 Music’s very own Don Letts was known in the late 70’s as the DJ that single handedly turned a whole gen­er­a­tion of punks onto reg­gae. Guar­an­teed to bang out the best of the best in both old and new tunes from the genre, it’s impossible to keep still dur­ing one of his sets.

Benny Page, mas­ter of Jungle, will take the reins on heart-pound­ing, floor shak­ing, down­right dirty tunes that’ll have you liv­ing and breath­ing rap­id fire drum breaks and sweet hooks.

Finally, this earth shat­ter­ing night of reg­gae, jungle, ska, dance­hall, and dub will end withSweetie from Sis­ters of Reg­gae, known for pulling out ska, rock­steady, reg­gae, reviv­al, roots and early digit­al reg­gae bangers from the 80s and 90s.

Tick­ets are avail­able now.
