FOUNDER/OWNER OF AMBASSADA HI POWER SOUND SYSTEM, EST 1978
Started out as the Operator & Selector throughout the 80’s – 90’s, as the sound to follow for the ultimate house/blues party experience. Playing the best in Reggae, Soul, Lovers Rock, Rare Groove, Revive 45’s to Roots/ Dub, this had made them a household name with a huge following across the UK and eventually making a mark in Europe through to the USA.
Ian Irie went on to be a solo Dj in his own right covering major London club Circuits and across the continents such as Spain, Greece, Holland playing to wider audiences.
As a musician, he took time out from the decks to get behind the mixing board to produce and remix for major record companies seeking to utilize his abilities for new breaking artists. This became a ten year project which led to owning his own label and recording five albums in the process.
A chance telephone call poached the idea that he should consider a radio show to use his wealth of experience and knowledge to present shows and interview some of his peers and professional contacts which became an overnight success in the new beginnings of combining the new internet platforms with the existing FM dial..The rest is history..
Ian has interviewed, the late Bunny Rugs (Third World), General Levy, Mikey General, Lady Lex and many important community figures along the way.
You can expect anything and everything from this unique all rounder, the record box is DEEP!!..the entertainment value is wide..all in all its blessed.
