Reggae music is the foundation of Ronggeng Sound System - the original sound that is responsible for dubstep, jungle, drum & bass, and even hip hop. The upcoming edition of Ronggeng night will see us bringing down the tempo so you can trade your gunfingers with some easy skankin' on the dance floor. Exactly a year ago, the first annual Ronggeng Reggae featured our regional comrades Diggy Dang from India, RPD from the Philippines and Masia One from Singapore. This year, we're celebrating irie vibes and conscious music with Earl Gateshead and Dan Wiltshire from the UK.

Earl Gateshead have been DJing since the late 70s and became one of the first non-Jamaicans to build his own sound system, which he installed at the world famous Dive Bar in Soho, London. And it was there, he became a resident DJ for over 20 years. Earl also enjoyed Saturday night residencies at the internationally acclaimed Blue Note, Fabric and Floating Point's Plastic People. For 12 years, he was the selector for Trojan Sound System and was the only DJ to date to work with Banksy, after the world famous artist invited him to play at the first three exhibitions of his work.

Touring Asia with Earl is a seasoned promoter and fellow reggae enthusiast - Dan Wiltshire of One Love Festival, the only camping reggae festival in the UK. A real DJ's identity lives within their collection, and Dan is no exception. His collection is like a box of jewels; first press vinyl and dubplates but also with an open heart for new sounds. The night will be supported by Tubby of Bud Culture and PS Dub Station which consists of Ronggeng's Renry Hollins and members from his Public School collective - The Easybabasound and Naj Frusciante.

Entry is RM20 all night. Jom ronggeng!
