The Tighten-Up Crew return to the Silver Bullet on the first Saturday in November with a guarantee of musical fireworks all night long!
In our efforts to ensure more bang for your buck, we present THREE, that's right... THREE top guests flinging down a topper-top selection for your listening and, most importantly, dancing pleasure!!!
CHRIS LANE has been one of our top spars since 19-Longtime and, apart from being a revered music journalist, ace record compiler for Trojan Records back in the day and top producer/co-founder of the legendary Fashion Records, he's also one of the finest selectors to ever pass through Tighten Up! We've missed him... Welcome back Chris!
DADDY A (aka: Dave Arnold) is a proper, old-school Eastender - growing up in Hackney at a time when Jamaican music dominated the area's club scene. Throughout the 70s he was a regular 'Face' at the likes of Phebes and The Four Aces Club and built his phenomenal collection whilst hanging out at the many record shops that seemed to be on every corner back in the good old days. With some considerable harassment, he's finally agreed to share his many vinyl treasures us all! Brilliant!
PORT-O-JAM PAUL (aka: Paul Steward) contracted Ska Fever back in the 60s. And we all know there ain't a cure for that! Luckily!!! As the founder of the infamous Port-O-Jam Sound System, Paul is a formidable selector with an encyclopaedic knowledge of Jamaican popular music. Most importantly for our purposes - he knows how to draw tuuuuune!
PAUL & DADDY A are both making their Tighten Up debuts but they know the territory and their respective boxes inside out. Welcome to the team gents!
BREAKING NEWS! The Big People Music Show's LLOYD MILLER has just been added to the line up! For those that don't know - Lloyd is an absolutely wicked selector who's been mashing things up good and proper north of the border - up in Aberdeen - for sometime now! Check his marmalade166 posts on Youtube or his brilliantly eclectic Big People Music Show for evidence of the range and depth of this man's selection. Lloyd will be helping us lay the musical foundations from which big things will be built on the night!
This is all shaping up very nicely indeed we reckon...
Good vibes, rewinds galore and the wickedest sounds inna London Town are, as always, GUARANTEED!!!
Yuh dun know how it go... REACH!!!
