We welcome Don Letts to the Fellowship & Star!This was so early in the scene there were no UK punk records to play as none had been made yet. So in between the fast and furious live punk sets Don played what he liked - some serious reggae. Lucky for him the punks liked it to and this mix gave rise to the ‘punky-reggae party’. When the Roxy closed Don was the go to man when it came to nice-ing up the place with some heavyweight bass. He was the original Clash DJ for many of their live gigs up and down the country. Entering the eighties Don deserted the decks to pursue his film career.
Following the release of his 2001 compilation ‘Dread Meets Punk Rockers Uptown’ (tunes he played during his Roxy days) he was persuaded to return to the decks. From that time till this he’s continued to DJ nationally and internationally with a set that’s very much in the spirit of his days at The Roxy - we’re talking the history and legacy of Jamaican music - with an emphasis on moving the crowd.
Along with clubs set Don Letts has performed at Glastonbury - Bestival - Lovebox - The Big Chill - Stussy 25th Anniversary - Adidas - Doctor Martins - Latitude - The Rough Trade 25th Anniversary - Lee Perry’s Meltdown - Rizzla - One Love Fest - Island Records 50th Anniversary - Massive Attack’s Meltdown - Vintage At Goodwood - Womad and Festival No.6 to name a few.
PS Don Letts has been known to switch it up when asked: for Arcade Fire’s sold out London shows at The Roundhouse he played an alternative dance set. For Dengue Fever’s recent show he played bass heavy world set and more the recently at the launch of the hit novel ‘City of Fire’ he delivered a late 70’s punk and hip hop selection. Having said that Don will not play music he doesn’t like and he doesn’t play requests!
Limited free tickets get them quick this is bound to be a sell-out show.
