About Channel One Sound System

In 1979, Mikey Dread and his brother Jah T began to play at blues parties and local dances having spent many years under the watchful eye of their father, owner operator of the famous Admiral Bailey Sound. They chose the name Channel One in homage to the legendary Jamaican record label of the same name whose tunes featured heavily in those early selections. Inspired by Bob Marley’s belief in uniting people through reggae music, Mikey was keen to introduce new people to dub reggae music and started touring around universities, where he secured a solid fan base.

Channel One’s mission is to break down barriers via reggae music, which they have achieved by playing new venues, festivals and countries, taking their unique sound to Australia, New Zealand, Israel, Turkey and all over Europe.  Channel One have attended over 30 consecutive years at Notting Hill Carnival making them one of the must see soundsystems for attendees to Europes biggest street festival.

2009 saw Channel One embark on their hugely successful national Dub to Dubstep Tour, with financial backing from the Arts Council, via Blackroutes and support from Punch and Vagabondz. Channel One took their sound system to 6 cities, touring alongside Kromestar, RSD and Jazzsteppa, showcasing their dub reggae sound system as part of the tangible heritage behind dubstep.  In 2011, Channel One have been on another tour, this time Dub to Jungle alongside Congo Natty, Tenor Fly, Congo Dubz, Nanci and Phoebe and Klose One.  And finally in 2012 Channel One went on a Jamaica Party tour, celebrating Jamaica’s 50th year of independence – alongside Coki, Mala, Shy FX, The Bug and Flowdan, Top Cat, The Heatwave, General Roots, RoxXxan, Rtkal and Screama.  Finally Channel One have toured with the legendary Twinkle Brothers, a concept put together by Mikey Dread.  These tours have been a great way for Channel One to reach new audiences.

Channel One Sound System were the Red Bull Culture Clash winners in November 2010, beating Skream and Benga, Metalheadz and Soul Jazz.  Channel One competed in the Culture Clash in 2012 at Wembley Arena, against Major Lazer (with Usher and Rita Ora), Boy Better Know and Annie Mac Presents.   Channel One are the first reggae sound system to have taken their sound to Wembley Arena.

Channel One Sound Systems hand built custom speaker stacks predominantly use Fane loudspeakers to provide a rich heavyweight bass sound which compliments their tight selection of old and new dub reggae classics, all played from a single vinyl deck and accented with echos and sirens.

As a world-class British audio manufacturer Fane loudspeakers are proud to be associated with Channel One Sound System and officially supporting them at this year’s carnival. Keep watch for the exclusive Fane carnival goodies that will be handed out on the day!  There really is no better opportunity to experience jaw-dropping sound and party with Channel One and Fane.
