“First started as an underground movement in Jamaica, travelling soundsystems have existed since the late 1940s as a means of bringing music to the people” – King Tuffie
After their tours with Wax Tailor, Deluxe, Chinese Man and Jukebox Champions, ASM (A State of Mind) are back on the European tour circuit at the beginning of 2015 to present an all-new soundsystem show concept. The show combines the spirit and aesthetic of traditional Jamaican soundsystem culture with the hip hop and funk elements which have defined ASM as one of the most dynamic and exciting live acts in Europe over the last 5 years.
Soundsystem is the Jamaican alternative to a live show, presenting exclusive music through Selectors and MCs in the form of dubplates or specials without the presence of a full band. The ASM soundsystem sets itself apart in that all specials are created live by revisiting ASM’s own catalogue as well as interpreting a range of classic hip hop, funk, and reggae anthems. In the spirit of the Jamaican sound clash, the ASM soundsystem has a competitive and athletic dimension, taking all comers in its striving for supremacy as champion sound.
Expect a wild party, high-energy performance, and no soundboys left alive.
