Oh what a Mighty, oh what a Mr Mighty!
Mr Mighty brings his selection of rare and essential dancehall, rocksteady and ska picks to this year’s Wilkswood Reggae Festival. Expect Chronixx, Jr Gong Marley, Randy Valentine, Peter Hunnigdale, Tippa Irie and Macka B amongst a golden pot of new tunes and classic spins.
Mighty has been working as a sound man and selector for just under 30 years. He was first influenced by his Jamaican parents’ reggae collection whilst growing up in Brixton, where the local sound systems of King Tubby’s and Sir Coxsone were a permanent backdrop to his musical education. Although he’s not restricted to reggae and ranks hip hop, jungle, soul and grime on his personal playlist, Mighty’s first love is sweet reggae music. He hosts the breakfast show on Thursday and Friday on Vibes FM, London’s number 1 reggae station, with the intended aim of motivating his listener’s with old skool and latest sounds.
