Imagine...
Back in the day, when every sound system was a sound system. Arriving at the venue in a large transit van or a customised coach! (As in the case of London sound system Java Hi Fi). To then proceed to 'String up your set', wiring up anything between 10 to 20 mountainous speaker boxes and carrying enough 'weight' to dislodge the mortar between the very bricks of the building you occupied!

We are talking big sounds, fat snares, heavy kicks, crisp hi-hats, round sexy bass lines, snatches of distinctive melodies, extended vocal echoes combined with mixing desk wizardry!
The DFA step forward with: 'ROCKERS SPECIALIST', 'DANCE A YARD', 'DUB IN THE ARENA', 'SKULK', 'MUDIE'S DUB REQUEST','HEAVYWEIGHT SITUATION','A FAMILY AFFAIR' and more!

This release guarantees you speaker box pressure!!!!
