Seasplash Festival presents Zagreb premiere!

Dubquake Records presents “Ina Vanguard Style” a documentary on Iration Steppas.

In the late 80s, the reggae sound system scene is thriving in the UK, homemade speaker boxes are shaking the underground to its core. In the dance, Jamaican roots reggae starts to make way to a new sound: UK Dub. “Ina Vanguard Style” takes you on a vibrant journey into Chapeltown’s ghetto in Leeds where a local youngster Mark Iration revolutionized the Dub scene alongside his long-time accomplice in musical murder Dennis Rootical; from growing up in a West-Indian community and blasting their ghetto blasters, to building their huge sound system and becoming the “Vanguard of Dub”, a major player that changed music history.
