An oral history of UK Reggae sound system culture. Interviews with sound men and women from the UK scene. Presented and produced by Zoë Baxter. This week: Raetown Man and Soo Ultrajazz of Yard-Dee Hi Power Sound. Brothers Raetown Man and Soo Ultrajazz (Derek and Peter Robinson) tell us about the sound Raetown created in the 1980s in East London – Yard-Dee Hi Power. Expect tales of flying to Jamaica to cut dubplates at Prince Jammy's and playing the sound system in London and Southend, where Raetown opened a record shop. These days you can catch the brothers playing at their cult club night Carib Soul (https://www.facebook.com/officialcaribsoul/).
