Welcome each and everyone to celebrate 12 Years of Ivah Sound!
Since 2010 Ivah Sound System has spread good vibes and thundering bass around Finland and beyond. We have met so many amazing people throughout the years and gathered together around the music we love, now it’s time to come together and celebrate life!
On Saturday 17.12. we will gather in Myyrmäki for this cultural event. We have put together an exhibition about our history and the sound system culture in Finland, posters, pictures and art. The event will start with a panel discussion, acoustic performance and continue into a mighty sound system dance!
ALPHA STEPPA (UK)
The son and nephew of respected dub heavyweights Alpha & Omega, Alpha Steppa has been surrounded by soundsystem and dubplate culture from a young age. Now a talented producer in his own right, his productions connect the dots between the music which he has grown up around and the new generation of UK bass music of which he is a part. His dubbed out style draws upon the sounds of his musical heritage, filtered through an exploration of the newer sounds of dubstep. As the owner of Steppas Records he has influenced the sound system scene with his own productions as well as many quality releases by such artists as JahYu, Dub Dynasty, Radikal Guru, Dj Madd, Adam Prescott, RSD, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Dub Judah, Gregory Isaacs and Lutan Fyah, just to name a few.
Temppeli is a spiritual roots project by two long-time roots reggae and dub producers. It has manifested itself as a large band, as well as a duo.
In the last few years, Temppeli has been quiet, but the men behind it have worked hard on the international charity roots reggae project, supporting Ethiopia. Universal Love Music Works record label has released numerous vinyl records that have spread around the world and have been played on some of the largest dances and sound systems. Universal Love Music is probably the most played Finnish production in the sound system scene around the world to date!
Now in 2022 Temppeli Sound has risen again when Hapanjuuri (mm. Acidroot, Laulurastas) and Kauhu I (Dread I) come out with their own productions and unheard ULMW specials!
Come and experience this live performance, combining live instruments, dub and a whole heap of cables and custom-built gear, spreading the spiritual message of the Temple!
