Iration Steppas / Biography
Founded by Mark Iration and Dennis Rootical, Iration Steppas burst onto the UK sound system scene in the 90s with a futuristic take on dub music. While being inspired by Jamaican roots reggae, their artistry was also massively influenced by hip hop, house and other electronic music, using techno and acid sounds in a way that had never been heard before. In the last 30 years, Iration Steppas has become a major player in the international dub scene. The crew has touched down on every continent shelling the dancehalls and leaving a huge impact on producers and sound systems alike. Often copied, never matched and always at the top of their game, Iration Steppas have clearly set new trends and shaped the history of dub.

O.B.F. / Biography
O.B.F (Original Bass Foundation) are a French dub and experimental reggae sound system based on the outskirts of Geneva. The crew, initially made up of producer & selector Rico, operator G and manager Stef rose up in the mid 2000s with their forward thinking dub music. Heavily influenced by Jamaican reggae, 90s UK dub and contemporary urban music, O.B.F’s sound is distinctive and versatile. They started off as an underground sound system mostly playing at Genevan squat parties. The unique sounds of Rico’s productions rapidly gained hype within the dub community and in 2006 O.B.F started putting on their own nights at “Le Zoo” L’Usine, Geneva’s biggest club. Since then, their notorious “Dubquake” nights have become a true institution in the European night scene. The interest around the sound system has grown exponentially ever since.
