Stepper Production proudly presents DJ Andy Smith who brings
his South London jam Boombox to Toronto for a rare appearance
here Friday October 24 on Wrongbars Function One sound system!
is going to be a fun packed night of proven dancefloor winners
alongside devastating tunes that may have passed you by. It's
time to hit rewind, press play and rock that old school 'Boombox'
Andy...What can we say? Well, tons actually...As Portisheads
official DJ, Andy was their travelling selector and supplier of
choice breaks and samples. Dont look for a night of (brilliant)
dark trip hop at this jam though, this will be a proper party
night as Andy brings a night of late 70s to mid-90s
hip hop, reggae, disco, funk and other pleasant surprises from
his varied and deep collection.
from repping icons like Portishead, Andy has released his critically
acclaimed Document record series (selling in excess of 100,000
copies) and has been trusted to take the wheel by iconic reggae
record labels Trojan and Greensleeves for sound system style reggae
mixes, UK based soul, funk and jazz dance reissue label BGP (Beat
Goes Public), (founded by Gilles Petersen and also helmed by Russ
Dewbury) the much respected 'Freestyle' label (funk, hip hop and
soul to afrobeat, breaks, disco and house) and many others.
can regularly be found at jams DJing alongside the likes of Daddy
G of Massive Attack, Jerry Dammers of The Specials and film director/punk
v reggae pioneer / musician Don Letts (Big Audio Dynamite).
knows beats and we team him up with Toronto veteran Paul E
Lopes from Bump N Hustle and Hot Stepper Sundays
here in Toronto for a massive night that we think will translate
here in Toronto better than most places on this planet given the
knowledgeable massive that our community is.
