TWO BIG SOUND revisits the ‘platinum era’ of the UK sound system in which two sounds ruled, the mighty Saxon Studio Sound and the legendary Sir Coxsone Sound.
A ruff cut history lesson with a difference, and by no means the bible of the UK sound system, the film doesn’t cover every facet of the sound system UK history, nor does it follow a timeline or chronology. What TWO BIG SOUND does do, is uncover subjects rarely heard about in Black UK music history. The film takes an earthy look into the lives and music passion of some of the pioneers within the Saxon and Coxsone massive, they who lived and breathed and affected sound system culture from the UK, Jamaica and the rest of the Reggae world.
Dancehall greats featured include; Trevor Sax, Jah Screechie, Levi Roots, Tippa Irie, Snr San, Jah Prento, Blacka Dread, Daddy Kernal, Philip Levi, Echo Minott, and Chris Peckings. Available for viewing for the next month here on Holy Roller.
This film is labour of love and created in memory of Smiley Culture, one of the UK ‘s Finest Pioneer MC Lyricists. Please come join us online now - available for viewing for a LIMITED TIME ONLY!
“In the way that I use the term, God is the energy and intelligence that created the universe and is driving the process forward in every moment. And that energy and intelligence cares desperately about change and innovation and the release of potentials that have not existed before. So it is constantly looking for portals through which it can enter into the world and consciously engage with creating its next step. As conscious human beings who have been blessed with self-awareness and free agency, we are those portals. Each and every one of us is potentially a portal for the energy and intelligence that created the universe. You have a human body and a human personality, but from a certain perspective these are merely sheathes through which the cosmic creativity can shine. From the vantage point of the creative process, your human form, your personality, with all the particulars of your own history, your personal relationships, and your life circumstances, is a vessel for an infinite process that is trying to go somewhere. How conscious are you of this? How conscious is any one of us that in this very moment the cosmic process that produced us is now dependent on us to take its next step?”—Andrew Cohen.
