What is a ‘Sound System’? How does it differ from a normal mobile DJ or a Club PA System?

I would define a ‘Sound’ is a super-amplified mobile system, invariably called by a name, manned by a team of individuals, each having real skills, who together create a unique party vibe wherever they set up and play recorded music of their choice.

Block Party, was formed in the late 80s by a collection of young DJ’s born and bred outa London but with that City Swagger and born out of the love of music from the ’80s ’90s and ’00s onwards. It’s not just a sound it’s a movement of people controlled by DJ’s and MC’s taking people on a musical journey with a taste from a broad and diverse range of selection of beats and rhymes. 

Block Party started initially by Music Incorporated then GT Flex Roadshow over 28 years ago. Block Party keeps getting re-invented every year. Later in the mid-nineties, the movement was joined by The Mayhem Crew & Gigolos Crew, KC and most recently by DJ Krisis and DJ Ska (the best in the West!) along with within our opinion the best sound system at Notting Hill Carnival Papa Joe’s.

The crew oozes creativity, diversity and keeps your dreams alive – all of which help set them apart from other sounds as they span over 35 years of playing ‘Sound’.  The fusion between the two generations of sound system explains the diversity of crew, with the Music Incorporated building the original set and Mayhem Crew taking it into the new millennium and now GT Flex Roadshow into the digital age……..

If you have never been to a Block Party, set you have not lived Carnival in its fullness. Dj’s within the sound battle and clash each other feeding of the atmosphere sampling anything from Rare Groove, 80’s Soul, Jungle, R’n’B, 90’s Hip Hop, Dubplates, Dancehall and the Slow Jamz that lockdown streets.

Peace & Love always
