March 31st is a big date for Dubcentral when Sheffield’s hugely popular dub reggae night moves to Club Shhh in the Wicker Arches. After five years of massively popular bass heavy nights at The Everyone Centre in Sharrow. Dubcentral is on the move. ‘There are many reasons why we chose to move to Club Shhh,’ says Papa Al from Dubcentral. ‘The Everyone Centre has licensing problems so we needed to find somewhere else; but more than that we love Club Shhh, it gives us 2 rooms so we can offer a wider range of bass music and encourage y more of the city’s younger DJs and the venue has a brilliant underground feel, like the old Arches for those of you who remember.
The o ther special feature of the night is the guest act; the first ever visit to Sheffield of The Disciples, one of the UK’s most famous and respected dub reggae acts. The Disciples, feature DJ Russ Disciple and Jonah Dan on vocals and percussion.
