/// ABOUT ///

RDH HI-FI [Nantes / FR]

The RDH Hi-Fi project was created by Clem and Simon, as they both wanted to get involved in the sound system movement, and participate in the promotion of reggae music as well as its positivity and message of unity.

Both instrument players at a young age, RDH Sound is also producing and playing home-made original dub productions and exclusive dubplates.
Inspired by legendary sounds and producers such as King Earthquake, Zion Gate Hi-Fi or Gussie P (to mention only a few), as well as others classical Jamaican artists such as Burning Spear or Culture, their selection flows through different kinds of styles of music that are part of the history of reggae and dub music up to the latest steppers/electro dub productions freshly out of their own studio.
To ensure the best knowledge and control of the equipment they’re using, they try to build all the machines and materials they need (speaker boxes, dub sirens, effects, preamps, etc.) themselves - as the pioneers of the sound used to do.

They’re promoting the sound system movement, spreading a positive and conscious message through the physical and spiritual vibrations of their sessions.

Joining forces with the great Black Redemption label from the US on this one, we are proud to release a heavy steppas tune by Haspar from Grenoble, France, featuring a powerful vocal by Fikir Amlak from Los Angeles, US. From first hearing and discovering the tune played in a dance to testing it ourself as a dubplate on different sounds and audiences numerous times, it has always provided an extra amount of positive energy.

King Shiloh aus Amsterdam kommt endlich wieder für eine Session mit Soundsystem & Crew nach Münster ins Triptychon. Die Shiloh Family um Bredda Neil und Red Lion war seit den späten 90ern bereits mehrfach in Münster zu Gast und bezeichnetete die Studenten- und Westfalenmetropole selbst als eine ihrer liebsten Städte für eine Session in Deutschland. Wer King Shiloh schon live erlebt und das gewaltige Soundsystem “gespürt” hat, weiss dass jede Session einzigartig ist und einen wahrhaft mystischen Vibe hat. Wir freuen uns, das nahezu an jedem Wochenende ausgebuchte King Shiloh Soundsystem am 24.03.2018 erneut bei der Reggae Attack präsentieren zu können! Warm up by Chalwa Sound.

Here comes a brand new collaboration reaching from France via Germany to the Netherlands, back to France and now into the world…
A powerful composition by our friends Natural Tribulation from Grenoble, France, was sent to the great Kenyan singer Empress Black Omolo (based in the Netherlands) for recording. The result: a sweet horns melody and deep bassline, bubbling organs and a pumping riddim meet a tuff voice and conscious lyrics inna “Steamers Meditation” style.
The vocal together with the multitracks of the instrumental then went back to France - this time into the Blackboard Jungle Studio - and the whole project got special mixing treatment by the dubmaster Rootical45.
Now in full effect. A rootikal anthem full of positive energy for all skanking addicts - including several dub excursions for the sound system heads…
