Sound Liberation Front (SLF), an arts and music organization based in Brooklyn, presents Afro-Dub Sessions: a monthly party at Rose Live Music in Williamsburg that combines live music and DJs to celebrate the best in Dub and African-influenced sounds. For the November edition of Afro-Dub Sessions, SLF is pleased to welcome Sal P from the legendary early 80?s “No Wave” band Liquid Liquid for a featured DJ set. Best known as the lead singer and percussionist of the highly influential New York group, Sal P has been active in the NYC music scene for three decades. Liquid Liquid?s three groundbreaking EP?s from 1981-84 on 99 Records forged a template of minimalist funk, dub and world music mixed with punk energy that has been followed by countless bands. Famously, their song “Cavern” was used as the basis for Melle Mel and Grandmaster Flash?s hit “White Lines” in 1983. Liquid Liquid broke up in1984 but reformed in 2008 and continues to perform. Since 1999, Sal P has hosted “Universal Sundays,” a regular party at various NYC nightspots featuring the African and Caribbean music. As it does every month, Afro-Dub Sessions will also feature a pair of live performances by resident band Super Hi- Fi, which has been packing the house with their creative melding of Afrobeat, Dub, live remixing and special guest appearances. The five-piece collective features members of Aphrodesia, Slavic Soul Party, People?s Champs, and the Blue Man Group. SLF resident DJs Linh and Lil Tiger will bring their diverse musical selections to the turntables to round out the night. Afro-Dub Sessions is dedicated to the idea that dub, born in Jamaica, and African musical styles like Afrobeat, Afropop and Afrofunk are natural partners in the origins of global dance music. Each month SLF explores these connections by hosting a different guest DJ specializing in Dub or African-influenced styles. SOUND LIBERATION FRONT is a Brooklyn-based non-profit organization devoted to the power of music as a socially liberating and unifying cultural force. Last summer, the group organized the Sound Liberation Festival in Brooklyn. The event featured hip-hop legends Brand Nubian; electro-Afrobeat pioneers Chico Mann; Ticklah; DJs Kenny Parker, Cosmo Baker, and Ian Friday; and, workshops by Afro Mosaic Soul and DubSpot. SLF also hosts SoundLib Wednesdays at Moe?s Bar in Fort Greene.
