High Grade Sound - the Antwerp Soundsystem in genuine Jamaican reggae dancehall style, with only one goal, to set the dance on fire under the motto High Grade Sound for High Grade people.

high–grade : of a very good quality
Merriam-Webster Dictionary
After several solo projects, High Grade Sound was founded in 1999 by Puppa Keith, General Bob and Svern Farhigh, under the wing of the legendary Far West Crew and Bong Productions.
Perez, Junior High and J joined the crew and soon High Grade Sound evolved to one of the trendsetting sounds in the Belgian dancehall scene. After Kinja, the former MC of Mystic Breeze Collective had followed their footsteps, a successful change of guards became a fact in 2011. HGS keeps scouting young talents to pass their experience and secure the next generation High Grade sound-boys/girls.
Unforgetable passages at Festivals like Reggae Geel (2003/2004/2005/2007/2009/2013), Summerjam (Köln, Germany), Sfinks, Open Tropen, Afro Latino Festival, Feest in het Park, Laundry Day, Happy, Smile and many others are already on their palmares.

From squats and basement rooms, the Boomblast parties hosted by HGS, grew into a bimonthly venue, in the center of Antwerp city. Four hundred frenzied dancehall fans come together in JC Kavka to indulge in the exciting rhythms of Caribbean music. Both "rudeboys" and "sweet sexy ladies" are well served by the energetic duo Kinja and J. The rest of the organisation is in hands of the crew, supported by twenty volunteers aka High Grade Family.
