This event is 21 and over
Dub-Stuy is a Brooklyn-based collective representing sound system culture for the 21st
century. Through its label, events and other multi-faceted projects, Dub-Stuy has been a
driving force behind a steady sound system renaissance in New York City, and North
America. Taking inspiration from its 15,000 watt speaker stack, the collective brings
together DJs, vocalists, producers, and sound system engineers for a full spectrum
representation of the culture.
Since 2012, the collective has been stringing up its hand-crafted sound system in the
streets and venues across New York City. Dub-Stuy events have included block parties,
underground club nights as well as festival stages and have featured guests such as Ali
Shaheed Muhammad , Channel One , Mungo’s Hi-Fi , OBF , Dubkasm , Om Unit and Gorgon
Sound . Collaborations with local and international institutions and festivals such as
Brooklyn Museum, Red Bull Music Academy, Afropunk, and Outlook have further spread
the word and showcased the collective’s ethos and dedication to the culture.
In the same timespan, Dub-Stuy’s affiliated label has grown into a dedicated home for
sound system music in both the US and abroad with 12” singles, albums, and EPs from a
growing roster of up and coming and veteran artists such as Tour de Force , Dubamine ,
Bukkha , and DJ Madd . Dub-Stuy releases have also featured international vocal guests
and remixers such as Ranking Joe , Brother Culture , Miss Red , Junior Dread , Radikal
Guru , and Moresounds . The crew’s in-house productions and approach to A&R aims to
connect old and new, taking inspiration from Jamaican music in its myriads of form,
Hip-hop, and contemporary Bass music.
Outside the realm of their Brooklyn home turf, the crew’s main selectors, Q-Mastah and
187 Soun d, have taken the Dub-Stuy vision and sound to parties and festivals around the
world, touring regularly across Europe and Asia. True to their sound system roots,
Dub-Stuy’s live performances are dynamic and engaging, combining eclectic DJ sets
with vocal performances and guest appearances from MCs and selectors affiliated with
the label. Expect to hear tunes from the label’s catalog mixed in with the crew’s
extensive collection of original dubplate productions that will be sure to rattle your
