This month Soul Jazz Records launches the first in a series of FREE classic Reggae film screenings as part of the ever popular 100% DYNAMITE parties on Brick Lane. Then after the film the Soul Jazz Sound System will be playing the finest selection of Reggae, Dancehall, Funk, Soul, Old Skool Jungle and Dubstep dance floor killers across two rooms.

Cafe 1001 is a fantastic, laid-back, warehouse style venue right in the heart of East London with loads of outside tables and a brand new Funktion-One sound system. So get there early and bring your friends to the on-going party that is 100% DYNAMITE - we're there every second Sunday of the month.


This Months Official Film Screening:
BABYLON
Directed by Franco Rosso in 1980, Babylon is a raw and incendiary film employing an effective mix of music and social commentary to recount the everyday experiences of a small group of working class black youths living in South London in the early 1980s.

Driven by a musical score composed and arranged by legendary reggae guitarist, former member of Matumbi and record producer Dennis Bovell, with additional songs by Yabby U, I-Roy, Aswad and many more, Babylon is a brilliant, breathlessly energetic, neo-realist snapshot of what it was like to be young, poor and black in early 1980s Britain. The film is rightly regarded as a cult classic and remains as socially relevant today as when it was made almost 30 years ago.

We will be screening a fully restored and digitally re-mastered copy of the film on a huge cinema screen, coupled with a Funktion-One sound system, in the main room at Cafe 1001 at 2pm. This is an amazing chance to catch a classic piece of UK Reggae history in one of the best screening locations in London. This event is totally FREE so please arrive early to ensure you get a space on the sofas.
