Pig&Rig presents Reggae n That LOVERS SPECIAL – an eclectic showcase celebrating the rich history & diversity of reggae & other genres of vintage black music. From Studio 1 originals to current producers & releases, ska & rocksteady to heavy roots & hypnotic dub they’ll be no corner untouched! With an exceptional line up this is event is not to be missed. Now every first Friday of the month!

This month we will celebrate Lovers Rock, a style of reggae music that exploded in London in the mid 1970’s focusing on romantic sound and content! Also focusing on smooth 70’s/80’s dancehall & vocal focused rocksteady to get you feelin saucy.

Line Up:

D’OXMAN: (Vintage Sessions / Soho Radio / Soul Jazz)

Eddie Oxman is an institution in the London reggae revive scene.
Perhaps most well-known internationally for his work with the renowned Dub Vendor and Soul Jazz crews, Oxman has a long and deep history, from running his own sound, producing, record collecting, to hosting dances. Whether selecting or on the mic, he is one of the best in the game.

REUBEN VIBES:

A familiar face around Brixton, Reuben Vibes has been raving on Villa Road and the area from the early 70’s until now! Had his first debut in 15 years at the first ‘Reggae N That’ last month and blew us away! From 80’s dancehall to vintage rare groove & R&B Reuben has got a collection to be feared – you may also know him as Kwaku, the site manager of Pop Brixton, Reuben Vibes is not to be missed!
