The Rastafarian icon will shake the foundations of London's EartH Hackney with his well-travelled namesake sound system
Last updated: 5th Dec 2019
Bass connoisseurs ArisezonLondon are to bring dub icon Aba Shanti-I to EartH Hackney on Saturday 28th December, for what is set to be an earth moving end-of-year experience.
'Jasmine Joe', aka Aba Shanti-I, started out as an MC back in the eighties with London's original dub steppa sound system crew, Jah Tubbys. Since then, he's embraced a Rastafarian way of life, travelling across Europe for the best part of three decades with his self-titled 'Aba Shanti-I Sound System', reverberating riddims off the walls of dancehallsacross the continent.
He's also a skilful producer, having remixed tracks for numerous artists and record labels, such as Dub Syndicate's 'Jamaican Jig', and aregular resident at Notting Hill Carnival(a popular one at that).
Here he is warming up the crowds at Notting Hill Carnival back in 1998...
Join the mighty Aba Shanti-I on December 28th (8pm to 2am), for another full on tuff-out session.
