The Mastermind Roadshow story is a unique and an important chapter in the history of underground Black music in the UK.
Originating and still based in London NW10, Mastermind Roadshow was formed in the late Seventies, as one of the first Sound systems to specialise in Soul, R&B and Hip Hop within the UK and we are proud to be often recognised and referred to as the ‘’foundation’’ by a number of the UK’s talented/popular DJ’s of today.
Whilst never neglecting the Soul/Funk/R&B ethos Mastermind are considered pioneers of the Hip Hop movement in the UK, working alongside such greats as Grand Master Flash, DJ Whizzkid, Afrika Bambaataa but to name a few.
Mastermind became widely renowned for performing on the two days at the August Bank Holiday Notting Hill Carnival. The start began late Seventies very early Eighties next to Ladbroke Grove Station alongside TWJ before moving the infamous ”caged ” area under the Westway, which became THE place to be at Carnival, the beginning of the Nineties saw us relocate to our current location in Canal Way next to Sainsbury’s at the top of Ladbroke Grove where we pride ourselves on being able to showcase and support the signed and unsigned UK talent sprinkled with an International flavour over the two days of Carnival with some of the finest both past and present regularly gracing our stage.
Catch Mastermind, Saturday from 9 am till 11 am, only on Mi-Soul radio.
