Almost two centuries since John Wray first began selling home made rum from his Shakespeare Tavern in Kingston, the overproof rum is celebrating it’s rich Jamaican history as they take London back to bass music’s roots for the third installment of their ‘Jamaica Rum Tings’ series , this time pulling out all the stops for a house party style event at Brixton’s Prince of Wales. Decked out as ‘Wray’s House’ featuring visual stories of Jamaica as well as screenings from f the Music Nation documentaries, the transformed pub plays host to a line-up of legendary artists paying, and playing, their tributes to reggae music and Jamaican culture. Jungle don Fabio takes on the midnight slot while UK Hip Hop legends Skitz & Rodney P feature in a DJ Normski soundclash alongside the likes of King Tubby’s and Unity Sound.
With room 2 hosted by London Dub/Roots outfit Rootikal, a guest chef from a local Jamaican restaurant providing the bbq fodder, Dub Vendor bringing the vinyl to browse and plenty of Jamaica’s favourite Rum loosening up proceedings, South London ‘Carnival Warm Up’ looks set to be a good one this year. Head over to Wray & Nephew’s Facebook and Twitter to stay in the loop and head over to the Prince of Wales (details above) on 23rd August between 2pm and 3am to bring in the much anticipated Notting Hill Carnival Sunday in fine style. Tickets available from here.
