After more than three decades on the decks, reggae spinner Earl Gateshead makes his U.S. debut.

The Trojan Sound System’s Earl Gateshead is something of a force of nature in the British reggae scene (you can read about him and hear a great DJ mix here), but here in NYC, he’s only known to the sound’s diehards. And that’s after 30-plus years in the biz! But perhaps that will change soon—the veteran finally made his U.S. debut on the decks at Drom on Friday, June 29, alongside Subatomic Sound System, Deadly Dragon Sound's Scratch Famous and Top Shotta Band. A good time was had by all…and here’s hoping it’s not another three decades before his return.
