AUDIO: Soul II Soul's Jazzie B (2005)

Bill Brewster, Frank Broughton, Rock's Backpages Audio, 2 February 2005

The original Funki Dread goes deep into his roots, from a family background in reggae sound systems to Soul II Soul at the Africa Centre, via bunking off school to go to Crackers; DJs like George Power and Paul 'Trouble' Anderson; setting up S II S, and the original warehouse parties. Riveting stuff.
