As a teenager in Southend, Malcolm would go to the reggae sound system nights at The Blue Boar. Local sounds such as, Yardie Hi Powa, Simba Sound, Red Eye and on special nights a London sound would come down such as Jah Tubby’s, Jah Shaka, Frontline, Fat Man. This was when he developed his great love for Jamaican music, spending weekends in London at authentic Jamaican music stores to collect 7” and 12” singles such as M.D’s music in Dalston, Daddy Kools in the west end and Supertone in Brixton, where he'd would pick up hard Jamaican pre releases. He finally built his own sound system: six scoops, loaded with 400 watt, 18” frames for the bass, three McKenzie double mids for mid range and bullets on the tops. All the amps purchased from Jah Tubby’s: he was off and running. The name came very quickly due to a deep interest in Rasta and the bible - Revelation Sound was born. He played in sound clashes with Simba, Abisha, Shammi and Blackstar Until he decided to make his own music: Revelation Dub. In 1995 he played Abashanti at the Vauxhall Arches. Early the next year a part two was arranged and this time Shanti would visit Goldmaster on his own turf. He started to think more and more about recording and less about sound system. He then came to the drastic decision of selling his record collection to buy recording equipment which he set up in the back room of his home. A sound craft desk a tascam 8 track and a few cheap analogue effects. It was not long before he had his first single with Gareth Brooks, Cape Horn: Goldmaster Records was born. Five singles and two albums later, they have a crack squad of musicians The Goldmaster Allstars. They are playing Glastonbury in 2016.
