Super Hi-Fi
Super Hi-Fi
Brooklyn-based Super Hi-Fi mixes jazz-inflected trombones, the rhythmic landscapes of Jamaican dub and touches of afrobeat, funk and rock for a unique and heady mix memorably described as an ‘imaginary soundtrack from Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, The Specials and Led Zeppelin.’ Led by bassist and composer Ezra Gale, whose last outfit, the San Francisco-based Aphrodesia, took their take on afrobeat all the way to Femi Kuti’s Shrine in Lagos, Nigeria, Super Hi-Fi has been creating waves in the fertile New York music scene since 2010 and released their debut full-length album, “Dub To The Bone” (Electric Cowbell Records), in 2012
Beat Brigade
Beat Brigade
Since the Mid 80's with the explosion of the third wave of the SKA scene coming out of England, The BEAT BRIGADE was born and join the likes of the TOASTERS, Second Step, Boilers, Akings, Urban Blight and more and created a NYC SKA scene like no other!

The Beat Brigade blends a mix of SKA, Reggae, Calypso and old jamaican roots vibe to their sound. Their heavy influences were the English Beat, Clash, Specials and can be heard on some of their songs.
