VF Live: Dubplate Pearl #5



Shimmering funk, soul and reggae from South London.

In VF Live, our favourite collectors take you inside their homes, record shops and studios for intimate mixes.

London legend Pearl Boatswain aka Dubplate Pearl – one half of DJ duo Camberwell Connection – grew up with sound system culture in the city, immersing herself in blues parties and weekend sessions.

For her latest VF Live set, she dips into her home collection for shimmering selects.
