This week’s episode features Lion Vibes in Brixton. “The reason Brixton is important is because it’s a pretty core part of reggae history… we get people coming from Europe on these kind of reggae pilgrimages. They’ll come over to see Jah Shaka or Channel One Soundsystem. They’ll come out, hit all the record shops and then take the first plane back home the next day.” Ben Bell, Lion Vibes.
