Bass Is The Place – Live from dublab Sleepless Floor (Meakusma Festival 2016) w/ Roger Robinson & Markus Hablizel

Sep 24, 2016

Interview Interview Talk Talk

Roger Robinson is a dozen men. Or more. He was born in Hackney, lived in Trinidad, but spent most of his adult life in London. He is a writer, poet, singer, and musician. And he is so much more. A teacher, a scholar, a thinker, an activist, a man of letters. He loves bass. And food. He is one of the few unrelenting and constant observers of life in Brixton, of post-riot/pre-Brexit Britain.

He is a serious man with a great sense of humour. He wrote a short story about a woman who fell in love with a tree. He is a founding member of King Midas Sound and in 2015 he released an album with Disrupt on every reggae lovers favourite label Jahtari. Roger Robinson is a dozen men. Or more. And Markus Hablizel (Cologne) is talking to some of them during his conversation with RR.

Meakusma Festival 2016

Set up in cooperation with the Goethe Institut, Waxtreatment, Reihe M, the Ostbelgien Festival and dublab, the Meakusma festival took place for the first time in fall 2016. It is almost exclusively rooted in the field of unclassifiable, contemporary experimental electronic and club music, and dublab is happy having been part of this extraordinary operation.

On our intimate “Sleepless” floor at the festival site DJ-sets, radioshows and interviews from friends and favorites alike took place and where recorded for your listening pleasure. More info about the festival and our involvement can be found here.
