This Xmas Special promises to be an historic occasion, as it features the legendary Neville King on the wheels of steel. The renowned producer was born in St James, Jamaica. Neville’s Soundsystem had long residencies in Brixton, Tooting, Peckham and Streatham during the 1970s. During those times he was a mentor to Blacker Dread, Levi Roots and David Rodigan.
Neville King launched his own label in London in 1976 and quickly struck gold. He issued exceptional roots material by Prince Lincoln and the Royal Rasses and Jacob Miller. Neville also released his own lover’s rock productions. His works, on the King and City label, by local heroes One Blood are particularly sought after; “Be Thankful” having assumed classic status. A great friend of the D.D.C., Mr. King’s work holds a special place for us.
Our Christmas shows together have become a favourite fixture in the calendar so all of the usual D.D.C. massive will be along for this one. Early on, club stalwart Danny Spartacus of the great Spartacus Sound will be personing the decks in fine style. Resident selector Soft Wax will be joined by a host of special guests. Following the success of our semi-live sessions, we will be welcoming back our fine, horns section led by Wild Will ( trumpet ), live and direct. We’ll also be featuring our mighty Singjay Doc Murdoch on live vocals and guest vocalists, the fabulous Sandeva.
Full details of the line-up, including special guests, on the mic,and club related, party favours, will follow in the fullness. Our seasonal specials are always killas, we expect this to be one of our most memorable sessions. Put on your dancing shoes, come on down and get your mojo working early for Christmas.
