Vibronics, Roots & Culture Party by Sirius Productions Cy
Sirius Productions Cy is back, gathering around the most excellent compilation of Roots & Culture international and local artists to present the top in Reggae and Dub Music. This time we are honored to have Vibronics traveling all the way down from Leicester (UK) for this one-off mid-spring gig, to test the limits of the local’s most blazing and recently upgraded Roots Crew Sound System, at the caves area of Acropolis Park, Nicosia.
They don’t just talk the talk but they actually walk the walk. Hailing from Leicester, Vibronics were conceived by the joint discovery of 90s Sound System culture and digitally sequenced music, which first inspired the creation of embryonic Vibronics dub tracks. Since 1997 they have been playing live and DJing across Europe where they have earned a reputation for kicking up a musical storm. With a distinctive sound established through a series of exclusive Dub plates for Sound System legends Jah Shaka, Aba-Shanti-I and Iration Steppas, Vibronics represents The Future Sound of Dub.
Steve-Vibronics doesn’t just play tunes; he actually works on them and adds all kind of things in the process. Sirens, echo’s, jingles, every knob on the mixing board that can be touched will be touched. Multiple layers of instruments and effects phasing themselves in and out of the riddim, long echoes and even hardly noticeable sounds, all on top of a heavy-heavy bassline and hard stepping drums: straight to the head!
For this special gig we have teamed up with Leicester great talent Echo Ranks of the Vibronics family! The great lyrics and heartful delivery of Echo’s vocal did not leave us much choice but to invite him to accompany Steve and experience in live his great ‘digital-spiritual revival’ style. Echo’s vocal leads into his own “toasting”, following the footsteps of legendary singers like Lion Youth and Errol Bellot.
ROOTS CREW SOUND SYSTEM
The first part is reserved for the Roots Crew Sound System selectors Tony&Coss, who equally mix together in authentic Sound System style. The hot duo will throw down their tight and precious selection of classic roots reggae and dub early in the afternoon.
The Acropolis Park is an ‘extraordinary gathering place’ that brings into such close relationship as to architectural styles the past, the present and the future. Surrounded by an excellent artificial and natural arrangement that includes the beautiful ancestral caves (who were by accident discovered in 1996) let us all connect and enjoy great music in this unique, fun, lively and most of all inspiring Roots & Culture atmosphere that goes far beyond the usual entertainment norms.
DUB MUSIC & SOUND SYSTEM: For those who are curious about Dub music and want to experience it with us, we can only say this is the music of praising the dreams and fight for freedom. Yes, you will feel included; yes you will be encouraged from the energy and the deep-deep basslines to join into the greatest vibes ever produced in town! Expect the finest dub-minded bass sound in the caves, as the quality result will be an experience that can only be provided by a Sound System such as the legendary Roots Crew Sound System.
Drink & Food, Culrtural Creations & Artifacts stalls by well known artists, all will be available at reduced prices.
