BANGARANG SOUND STATION outta Herentals (Herbtals city as they call it), Belgium, is founded by two bad DJ’s, Jah Mi Gimme & Jah Moes I. For ten years by now they’ve played all kinds of music all over the place. Rediscovering their rastaroots, the’ve realised that the Reggae Sound is the only Sound. In this realisation they found a soulmate in Ras Rox. A soundboy filled with Irie vibes, who has grown out to be the MC of this righteous Sound Station. Currently Bangarang Sound Station consists of Jah Mi Gimme aka Tiny Tim (operator – selecta) and Ras Rox (MC)
Wether on their eyecatching mobile sound system or on regular sound systems, spreading Word, Sound and Power is the mission.
UK’s OPERATION SOUND SYSTEM was officially founded in 1996. The Sound had started to be noticed nationally after a series of high profile ‘sound meetings’ in 1998/99. After these it was obvious that “the roaring lion sound, outta Blackburn (or as people now started to name them “the Northwest heavyweight”) was clearly a force to be reckoned with. In the years following they were fortunate to be invited to play dances & sound meets all over the UK from Plymouth to Glasgow, developing their signature sound & operating style. They released their first vinyl “Rally Round” with Daddy Teacha to much acclaim in 2004… this quickly became one of the best selling UK roots records of the year, again raising the profile of the Sound not just in the UK but also overseas.
Playing venues such as Sub Dub Leeds, Dub Central Sheffield & others now on a regular basis, Operation Sound System continued to build progress, and tour the UK. Releasing the next 12″ EP “Righteousness” with up coming roots singer Jah Mikes in 2006, this again received a great reception and reviews. After 11 years on the road, new boxes & a new pre-amp were needed and the original sound was rebuilt and let loose in March 2007. It caused a sensation… from that date to this they’ve never looked back! Live in session Operation Sound is a raw reggae, dub, steppas, roots & culture experience not to be missed.
