I think he's playing on the 28th Jan, not 31st. I will be going too. Jah Shaka's popularity is still on the up. From what I experienced at a couple of his sound system events last year, he's doing the same as he has always done - oblivious and regardless of the latest fashions in sound systems. Really awesome bass (capable of making you ill if you're too near the speaker). I may be feeling my age a bit but I find Shaka gigs, while hugely entertaining, place a massive demand on my stamina. Too much bass, playing at frequencies way below anything you hear normally. A different sort of bass to other London sound systems.

Shit, I can't believe it! I responded to a 2 year old post! Anyway, Shaka's playing at the Rocket again on 28th January.

Does anyone know the health implications of the bass at a Jah Shaka night?

Surely having the whole of you body and internal organs vibrated for the whole of 4 hours (as happens) must have an affect, I'm just wondering what it is.

Personally, although it was great experience, and I love Shaka's one turntable skills (for anyone who hasn't been he has just one turntable, and plays from vinyl albums - when one track is finished he whips the record off and whips the next one on and manages to find the exact start of the track he wants with the first drop of the stylus all in fantastically fast time) I didn't particularly like the style of dub he played - mostly stuff sounding like things done on an early 90's workstation keyboard with General Midi sounds - **** synth brass - noooo!

That's the Shaka warrior style of dub! It can be a bit much, I agree. Played on a home hifi on vinyl and mended through an EQ it's much easier to appreciate. Themes are exotic and there's mostly a militant style of percussion. I think part of the problem is that his recordings seem to have something flat going on at about 20hz (like really bassy feedback), which is'nt good at the volumes he plays (unnecessarily big bassy sound) - probably trying to project the archetypal "true believer syndrome" - a bit tiresome. There's still a lot to like about his sound though. Especially, his more Afro-percussion oriented dubs such as on Commandments of Dub.
Although I agree the synth brass or siren or whatever it is just is'nt "nice" but tortured and torturing. It often bears no correlation to the underlying dub and I absolutely hate it. In fact, his sound system pumps out too much off-key high-frequencies tones. Strangely, the brass section on CoD sound real and nothing like a 16-bit PC soundcard.
A lot of his stuff was/is produced by Mad Professor, and I think the 90s PC sound you hear would be due to Mad Professor's production and mixing (the sound of the Ariwa studio).

About the bass vibrations. I'm sure that Jah Shaka himself has some interesting Rasta-oriented ideas on what they do, but all I know is that they can get nauseating after about 4 hours (Rocket nights go on for 8 hours), if he does'nt set the vibe right in the course of the night.

Its funny that someone asked about the health implications of a Jah Shaka show because a few weeks ago Shaka played Tokyo. I'd had 5 fillings done the day before and had to leave the show after only 90 minutes due to bass pain in my jaw
