It’s with great pleasure that we have a new playlist provide by Jason Jules long time friend of the brand from his early days at the Watchmen agency and beyond so in his own words…
Jason Jules is a writer and creative director. If he were to compete on Mastermind he’d specialise in music or menswear and probably say ‘pass’ to all the general knowledge questions. He’s super interested in Modernism right now and is about to launch a blog dedicated to ‘everything from Bauhaus, acid house and your mum’s house.
A young historian and educator enthusiastic about music and fashion. Coming from a background of subculture. I’m keen on exploring the connections between the different dimensions of the past and present subcultural reality, from the inside and from the outside. Captured in a number of articles for fanzines and magazines, as well as a paper for the prestigious Culture & History Digital Journal. I collect records of many sorts but I have special weakness for Jamaican sounds from the 60’s and 70’s.
“I shall fear no evil” is a mixtape for 6876. A fine selection of timeless early reggae, rocksteady and ska classics. Mixed and recorded in mono at home (E8) during isolation with strictly vinyl from my personal collection.

The mix leans into his British Jazz collection blended with some familiar grooves given Jazz treatments.

Shaun Galbraith aka Rumshack Steve, booker and resident to one of Glasgow’s roughest monthly parties as well as the manager of Glasgow’s number one Caribbean style dancehall and venue.
Focusing on reggae, dub and dancehall music as well as the influence of dub producers and techniques on other forms of music, these nights have seen guests such as General Echo Soundsystem, Dubplate Pearl, Bokeh Versions, Sisters of Reggae and Jagger (Supreme) rock the dancefloor.
This 1 hour mix draws from the influence of these parties and the imagined relationship between them and the sixeightsevensix range.
