Sound Mag is an independent publication immersed in the world of sound system culture. The music, and those who make it - the sound systems, the DJs, and producers, run through these pages strongly, but Sound Mag also aims to showcase the designers, filmmakers, illustrators, photographers, and promoters, that help create and sustain this rich culture. It's a holistic look at a scene that doesn't get the attention it should.
Issue 5 includes an interview with Jason Panton of Dubwise Jamaica, a drop-in with Finnish sound system team Ivah Sound, a look at the 35mm flicks of Murs and a focus on the pioneering sound system culture in Georgia. There's also a look at the 'Each one teach one' apprenticeship ethos coming from Leeds West Indian Centre, until the guidance of Mark Iration.
Size: 210 x 148mm
A highlight for us is the illustration of sound systems by Chek Selectah - taking us from Duke Vin in the '50s to Iration Steppas in the '90s.
