On normal weekends when the Wee Dub unleashes its musical magic, it’s always a privilege to attend but with two floors and 7 hours of heavenly music ahead, this is the one that will bring us into 2016 with a bang !!!   The Wee Dub was powered by Electrikal Sound System who are a regular of the Wee Dub and with the sound quality they produce the dance floor should be rocking or should I say, will be rocking. With dancing feet on the crowds grew, awaiting their turn to unleash their funky moves…  After the New Year bells,  the place began to fill up and the vibe was set…

The togetherness that comes with reggae , dancehall and dub was clear to see.  It  brings everyone together under a veil of connective love, sharing a special piece of that magic !!!  As always get there early as this show tonight was certainly going to be a sell out.

With his mix of Classic Tropical beats, Folk, Funk and World Music you were caught between two floors of different music which gave us that cocktail off Caribbean and Dancehall Dub. Riddim Tuffa Sound and Electrikal Sound continued to push the vibe to the limits.  Watching Finn Todd and Tom Spiral do their thing was a true pleasure. The collaboration between these two is infectious , powerful and hitting the mark they had the place rocking. A great gem in the making that has taken them from Edinburgh to all over Europe.

The running order was spot on and ran without a hitch .  Thanks  to the Gregory’s Wee Dub and Chris Astrojazz’s Samedia and not forgetting all the other crew that allowed us all to share in this special night..  Reggae , Dub, Jungle, Dancehall, Roots, Culture, Caribbean, Latin Jazz, and Tropical Beats, we had it all.  An unforgettable New Year !!!  Thanks for all who attended and making their presence felt through dance and music…
