DUB CLUB RETURNS TO NIGHT OWL > SAT 2 FEB > HEARTICAL POSSE

Post by Dub Club Melbourne »

Dub Club Melbourne returns for 2013 on Saturday 2 Feb, launching a brand new series of Basement Sessions. For the first one of the year we have invited our good friend Boover Banton to take the mic perform inna special showcase alongside resident soundsystem crew Heartical HiFi Outernational.

Boover Banton caught the sound system bug at the early age of 10 years old. Skipping his Friday night boys brigade meetings to attend the legendary Canterbury Sessions in Birmingham UK where in 1972 Quaker City Soundsystem used to host the dance. These where the days when sound system style toasting was emerging, pioneered by deejays like U Roy and I Roy. Two years later Boover and his family moved to London. A good friend of the family was rock steady singer Roy Shirley who owned Third World records shop in Stoke Newington and the young Boover Banton could be heard toasting to the riddims being played in the shop. Determined to make his name on the sound system circuit he would later occasionally touch the mic for Warrior HiFi. Another two years passed the family moved to Cardiff and this is where Boover’s reputation as a toaster grew momentum and would see him travelling to Bristol, Gloucester and Manchester with his own sound Lion Heart. Later Boover returned to London and made his way up the MC league busting the mic for Intrepid Rebel before gracing the stage with Gemi Magic one of the UK’s biggest sounds at the time. Today Boover lives in Melbourne while working on his own studio and productions.
