The museums of London are running an exhibition celebrating dub reggae and its influence on the capital, called ‘Dub London” Bassline of a City’.

From its roots in Jamaican reggae, to how it shaped communities over the last 50 years, the new display explores not only dub music, but also the cultural and social impact it has had on the identity of London and its people.

Highlights include:

● The iconic speaker stack belonging to Channel One Sound System that has appeared yearly at Notting Hill Carnival since 1983
● A bespoke record shop created with Papa Face of Dub Vendor Reggae Specialist with a selection of 150 vinyl records available to listen to, chosen by fifteen London based independent record shops
● Collaborations with notable names and organisations including Mad Professor, Rastafari Movement UK, Sisters in Sound and more
● Historic and contemporary photography, including 21 newly acquired photographs by Dennis Morris, Charlie Phillips, Eddie Otchere, Adrian Boot, Jean Bernard Sohiez and Richard Saunders
