We’re often proclaiming how blessed the Oxford music scene is; a vibrant and diverse music scene which owes much to the culture and heritage of the city. Oxford’s high standards of academia and cultural output has led to some of the most progressive and enthralled artists making some truly beautiful and challenging music. Oxford is also a very accepting and multicultural city, and it is this diversity of people and sounds which new Oxford music website Sensible Dancehall aims to celebrate.
Sensible Dancehall is a new music blog dedicated to covering dancehall, roots and reggae. Similar to what we aim to achieve here at One Note Forever, Sensible Dancehall generally covers news and music from all across the globe but with the added specific focus on Oxford’s current music buzz:
“In our three months of existence we’ve focused on shows at the O2 Academy, The Regal, The Bullingdon, The Cellar, Lava/Ignite, Cowley Road Carnival, Out To Graze Festival, East Oxford Community Centre and also the Pheonix Picture House. As well as the event features we also like to give our readers updates on the national & international reggae/dancehall scene, with news on radio shows, new releases, videos and everything in between. Basically, we’re a website focusing on local music, whilst splicing in added treats to attract readers from afar.”
Sensible Dancehall will also be hosting a monthly reggae night beginning on Sunday 29th May at the Port Mahon, St Clements. Love ‘av Mercy promises “salvation through selections” as well as free entry, free snacks and dominoes! So if you enjoy the atmosphere of the Hi-Lo Bar, but not the hostile/erratic management, then Lord ‘av Mercy could well be the answer to your prayers.
