Jibbering are delighted to welcome back to Birmingham one of only a few who can be regarded as a living legend. After Horace’s amazing set, closing Shambala 2008, we were desperate to bring him back to Birmingham. Imagine our delight when we found out that alongside one of the reggae vocalists of all time, we could also feature Ashley Beedle!
The artists are on the road to promote their new collaboration album on Strut records, part of the labels ‘Inspiration Information’ series. On the album Beedle draws on all of his diverse musical influences to create a collection of fresh roots fusions, ranging from dancehall to dubstep. The new material Ashley Beedle had worked on was stripped back in the studio, and the result is some deliciously heavy roots, ultra modern twists and a dance floor vibe, which allows Horace’s voice to shine through.
Horace Andy is perhaps best known to mainstream audiences for his work since the early ’90s as a guest vocalist with Bristol hit makers, Massive Attack. However, he is also widely venerated as an all-time great by hardcore reggae aficionados. Although Ashley Beedle is known for his 4/4 remixes, reggae has formed a crucial part of his musical DNA since his early days running the North London Shock sound system back in the ‘80s.
As Jibbering strides forward, towards the next chapter in its evolution, this is one of the many special events not to be missed (sign up to the mail list NOW!). It is a rare chance to see this great show, live and up close, in a quality intimate venue in Birmingham.
