Reggae Night with Subatomic Sound System
Join Black Grenade Entertainment in welcoming Subatomic Sound System and Screechy Dan to Ellensburg for our Annual Reggae Night! Selecta Serenade will be bringing the Roots Reggae selections, with Hip Hop performances by Coaster and Savvy Rae.
NYC’s Subatomic Sound System has been on a 2 decade mission forging a future foundation style built on the bass heavy, spacious soundscapes, and live improvisational remixing of classic 1970s Jamaican dub and conscious reggae music in the context of electronic music. Using the latest technology, they pioneered a unique performance style that blurs the lines between DJing and a live band. These efforts gained the attention of the late dub and reggae pioneer Lee "Scratch" Perry (1936-2021) , the genius producer and song writer behind Bob Marley, who for the last decade employed Subatomic Sound as his go to band for re-inventing his Black Ark Studio sound live on stage.
Subatomic is spearheaded by producer, DJ, and multi-instrumentalist Emch, who arranges and manipulates both prerecorded music instruments and effects with the live musicians to create a real time musical dialogue. The core live musicians include Jamaican percussion legend and Black Ark veteran Larry McDonald (Peter Tosh, Skatalites, Gil Scot Heron) and Troy Shaka Simms (Brooklyn Gypsies, Mobius Collective) on sax. Iconic dancehall singjay Screechy Dan holds down the mic, chatting and singing with a unique ability to cross generations of reggae vocal styles in a single song.
