“Showtime Blackstar” Sound was founded by Noel Gardner, a veteran of the sound game who has been in the business for over 40 years. He became prominent in the late 1970’s when with his colleague (Keithy Dread) built the very popular Highteous Sound which amongst the likes of Coxsone, Shaka, Fatman and Saxon were amongst the best 'reggae' Sound Systems of the era.

Due to the interest of Noel's youngest son (Jordan aka Darkface) and friends Stylo, Shortman and Rico Snap,  as well co-sound-system operator and trusted friend Khalile (aka Lightening) the Showtime Blackstar  'sound system' was launched on Saturday 14 February 2009 at the Henry Prince Community Centre, Wandsworth, South London.  That same year saw their first performance at the Notting Hill Carnival and there's been no looking back ever since.


With their motto-

              “music is the food for the soul so play it right”,

the “Showtime” DJ’s have been regular on the club circuit across London. They have a unique blend of REGGAE old skool, SOUL, R&B, AFRO BEATS, HOUSE, DUB STEP, DRUM & BASS, RAGGA, JUNGLE and SOCA.

Showtime Blackstar are currently situated at Bosworth Road,  Ladbroke Grove on Carnival days.  Please click here to contact BASS if require further information on this growing Sound System.
