Pirates Crew BDay PartyMay 5, 2018 - Trefpunt, Ghent, Belgium.
PIRATES CREW BDAY PARTY
The ‘Pirates Crew’ boat from Ghent, entered territorial waters fifteen years ago, and that needs to be celebrated. Pirates Crew is known for their positive party vibes and well varied vinyl selections of reggae, ska, rub-a-dub, and dancehall. They’ve invited one of Belgiums most promising mc’s Dhazed to hold the mic. On the wheels of steel they will be joined by The Dukes Of SKAzzard, Bomb-A-Sound and Heartbeat Movement. At their party, which is supported by Reggae Geel Brukout, they’ll be introducing The Dukebox to provide the sound.

Beljam bashment sound with Positive Reggae Music, Sweet Rub-A-Dub and Dirty Ragga-Ragga Dancehall. Bomb-A-Drop… KABOOOM! Bomba Sound was originally a strictly vinyl sound, but recently included digital controllers and rebranded as Bomb-A-Sound Crew. They don’t play homophobic music, they keep it positive and make sure the ladies enjoy themselves. They were the winners of the 2015 Reggae Geel Vi.be mix contest
Selectors Stubborn and Jazz
These two vinyl freaks have been collecting and spinning Reggae 45s for years and years. Stubborn used to live in Berlin where he had a weekly slot at the famous YAAM club; he also collaborates in Caoutchou Records and is their resident DJ. Jazz stays up-to-date with the new roots music and digs relentlessly for classic gems.
Deeds entered the dancehall scene as a promotor of underground squat bashments (Smart Art Movement). He later moved to Jamaica where he teamed up with Westmoreland’s Ghetto Rock Soundsystem and caught the boastful walk and patois talk of the true original soundboy.

THE DUKES OF SKAZZARD
Benji’s and Mpti’s classic soundsystem… Get ready for ska and rocksteady!! Benji and Mpti, known as JB-sound, wanted to play more of their classic reggae collection to let people enjoy the real hits and rarities from the early years of reggae. So in the summer of 2011 they decided to start with The Dukes Of SKAzzard… Ska and rocksteady all the way! Since then they’ve been on a great ride down memory lane, playing for the nicest of people in Belgium and abroad at festivals and parties such as Riverside Stomp (Mainz), Soulboys vs Rudeboys parties (Antwerp), Lost archives tour with Clive Chin (France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Belgium), Rootsmanstyle parties (Antwerp), etc. So, come along and move your dancing feet to the classic beat! Cuz this station….rrrrrulez the nation!
Heartbeat Movement was founded in early 2001 in the backyard of the capital of Brussels, D-Town. since then this Sound has been representing and spreading Jamaican music and culture.
From an early age Dhazed was listening to the songs of Bob Marley, Alton Ellis, General Levy, Alborosie, Collie Buddz, etc. His passion for singing grew and he developed his own reggae-flow alongside hip-hop MC’s in the streets of Brussels. After some home-recordings, he thought it was time to find his own style and riddim. Dhazed is an artist who loves to toast, sing and make the massive move while he’s on stage, trodding the festivals with RAGGARAVANE SOUND SYSTEM. The latter, an original Sound System in a 1960s Goliath caravan, he joined in 2013 and it introduced him to the Sound System scene in Belgium. Inspired by the beautiful Caribbean vibe and the IRIE message of reggae music his passion keeps growing.
