Sir Coxone Outernational on Thursday 28th November 2019
Sir Coxsone Outernational has long been an important part of Britain’s soundsystem culture.
In its heyday of the 70s and 80s, the sound retained an insurmountable edge, thanks to the unbeatable tag-team of proprietor Lloydie Coxsone and his star selector, Festus, and an ever-changing crew of supporting members that kept the sound perpetually fresh and innovative. With an endless supply of superior dubplates sourced from top producers in Jamaica, augmented by some of their own productions cut with high-ranking music makers in the UK, Sir Coxsone was undeniably top of Britain’s sound system circuit. Their superior selection and the manner in which they presented it to the public gave Coxsone the kind of credibility that most other sounds were never able to achieve, leading to longstanding residencies at nightclubs in the fashionable West End.
They played a big part in spearheading the lover’s rock movement, and helped instigate the shift towards digital dancehall too.
Music Genres: Reggae
