🔊 SUBMERGE SOUNDSYSTEM LAUNCH PARTY! 🔊
RSD (Punch Drunk) + Halcyonic & G Roots (Moonshine Recordings)
10PM — 3AM // Inkspot Venue — Cardiff // Strictly 18+
Summer is upon us and we’re celebrating with the full unveiling of the Submerge Soundsystem.
We’ll be taking over Inkspot with a night of Dubwise and Jungle spanning two floors and headlined by legendary Dub/Roots producer RSD.
Inkspot are opening up their upstairs room for the very first time for our summer show. It’s one of Cardiff’s best kept secrets and we’ll be stacking the Submerge Soundsystem right underneath the arches of its stained glass windows for an unforgettable start to the summer.
▬▬ RSD ▬▬
Starting out as a member of ground-breaking Bristol Triphop/Breakbeat outfit Smith & Mighty, RSD has paved the way for many of Bristol’s biggest musical movements, including internationally acclaimed artists Massive Attack and Portishead, and has continued to have an undeniable influence on the UK’s Dub, Jungle and 140 scene through a career spanning over five decades. Smith & Mighty’s 1992 EP Steppers Delight is seen by many as a precursor to Jungle and, having picked up his current moniker in 2007, RSD has become an iconic figure of the modern Dub movement with tracks such as Kingfisher and Murderation. Having recently returned from his Asian tour, RSD will be taking centre stage with his signature weighty basslines and incomparable collection of dubplates.

LION then began his journey through many UK genres, spinning early Jungle in the 90's and UK Garage & Grime in the late 90's into 00's.
