Berlin Dub Wires presents chapter #2
KING SHILOH SOUND SYSTEM (Amsterdam / NL)
'The Healing of the Nation' Sound System
King Shiloh Sound System, based in Amsterdam, Holland, is an international, independently operating, roots reggae & dub sound system, founded and inspired through the inspiration of Jah Rastafari in 1991. The state of the art 40kw 6-way stereo sound system is at the heart of all activities, spin-offs include the King Shiloh Majestic Music record label.
The sound system phenomon began in Jamaica in the ‘fifties’ and has grown worldwide to what it is today. From Jamaica to Japan, the UK to Brazil the excitement a big sound can generate when ‘playing out’ is unique. Enormous self-made speakers, the largest amplifiers available and a crew to build it up, operate it, and break it down are the key elements.
King Shiloh are known as the traveling sound, they have covered more distance in the last 20 years with their sound system than any other in Europe. Ground-breakers outside of the UK and responsible for inspiring a whole new generation of sound systems across the continent. They were the first non UK sound to play on the island with their own sound system, becoming regulars at the famous University of Dub in London.
The Shiloh record label has grown from strength to strength becoming one of the most successful in its genre. From the first release on the 23rd of July 1997 there has been a catalogue of top releases including tracks from reggae legends Earl Sixteen & King Kong. The latest release “Ethiopian Dream” from the later mentioned was recorded in Ethiopia and represents the first album coming out of Afrika from a ‘Reggae Major’.
