Sat 26 May — Luv80s
Dance Tent hosted by Encapsulated Energy
Major Ranks began Mc'ing in 1985 aged 14 when he joined a group of friends and formed a Reggae Sound System called Emperor Sound in Nottingham. Heavily influenced by the Jamaican MC's of the time he hosted at parties and Blues in the City until leaving for London with Clifton Sound where they had a Residency at the famous 4Aces Club in Dalston Lane. With the Birth of the Rave scene he continued to host the Mic at events including Fantazia Euphoria Rupture Flex FM and many more. At the 1st Encapsulated Energy he gatecrashed the party and so began a firm friendship with Colin and Lisa and became their Resident MC. With his minimal style and outgoing personality Ranks is still in demand 33 years on after first touching the mic way back when.
