Back Beat Brings Back The Heat With The Beat For Your Feet

There are a few known facts about LA Ska, Reggae & Soul. We have great bands that try to play as close to the original style as possible. We have great selectors who spin all vinyl and the rarest hottest tunes around. We have a very dedicated group of collectors of vintage vinyl who love to share and spin music together. One could pretty much go out every night of the week here in LA and catch some form of Soul or Reggae being played live or on record somewhere. It’s wonderful. It’s also hard to argue that Mark Morales and a few other choice collectors have some of the best collections in the world. They have searched long and hard, gone to the darkest dub dungeons and record swaps, lands far away and traded with the best to get nothing less to find the wickedest cuts in the most pristine shape with the cleanest labels and bring em back for us to hear. We’re blessed.

Well now Mark and some of his close friends including top soul & reggae collectors George Rodriguez, David Bywell and Carlos Lapiana have come together yet again to bring us another round of top tunes like no other. Hot Shot Sound System and Angel City Soul present Back Beat: A Monthly Northern Soul & Ska Sound Attack every last Saturday of the month starting May 28th.

I've been involved in the Los Angeles music scene since at least 1995 going to shows, promoting, spinning records and running labels. Ska and Early Reggae are my passion among other things of course.
