Champion Sounds at The Buszy


A FESTIVAL atmosphere is promised at Saturday’s big Buszy bash, which will see new city pack leaders The Criminal Minds doing their hip hop best at the head of a taut bill of nice stuff.

Also playing at the promo, which is a joint effort betweenAudioWall Soundsytems and DelicateBeats, you’ll catch sets by the ska-dub monster Babyhead (above), and No.1 Station will bring their reggae-ska-rocksteady style to the party,

But the roar continues in the lounge area too, with a fusion of hip-hop, house, funk, reggae, electro breakbeat, rare groove and dub coming from a stack of cool players – Jerome Hill, DJ Spatts, Pat Bedeau, Terry Bedeau, Delicate Beats, Martin Reilly and Dub Lions.

The packed deck of players aren’t about to give half measures

either – with a whopping eight hours of music to get stuck into from 8pm.

“The aim is to cater for the people who like the festival approach and live music,” says Warren O Sullivan, one of those making the musical beast a reality for Saturday.

“Basically, I’ve still got this promotions beat in my ear and can’t resist putting on a good party,” added the chap behind Delicate Beats, which ran at The Sanctuary and then Bar Central, until both venues closed up shop in the mid noughties.

Tickets to the bash, titled Champion Sounds will cost you a tenner in advance (purchase direct from The Buszy or through or splash out £15 on the door.
