Dubcentral & I-SUS Sound System humbly invite you to a night of Dub, Roots & Culture
This special occasion is hosted by two longstanding roots & culture collectives based in Sheffield with over 40 years experience between them
Expect a night of music that is conscious, uplifting and made for heavyweight sound system
YAMMI : I-SUS SOUND SYSTEM / DUBCENTRAL
Itiopians was Yammi's first sound in the early 1970's playing alongside sounds like Mafia, Quaker City and Lord David. He went on to create I-SUS Sound System in the 1980's - from the onset I-SUS was known as a truly heavy sound
For a period of 10 years I-SUS and another local sound Black Joy joined forces to become the mighty Trojan High Power . It finally disbanded after when some of the members wanted to change from playing roots & culture, and play bashment and dancehall. Feeling as though the music was not giving out the right message, Yammi and Idren Godson went their own way and built with a new name I-SUS 2K with the principles that mattered to them; dealing strictly with Roots, Culture and Dub.
Move forward to 2014 and Yammi has reclaimed the name I-SUS Sound System and is still going strong.
