Topshotter: "Massive Sound from Kortrijk (Belgium), I don't think they are active anymore but they were a pretty good soundsystem. They played at many bashments across the Belgium country. They also played at Reggae Geel and the VK (Brussels) as support act for Jamaican artists. Their 'raggamix 2006' includes dubplates by Cham, Bounty Killer but also Belgium artists like Gabriel Rios, 'T Hof Van Commerce, Ya Kid K (Technotronic), Manifest (NSG Soundsystem) & Riemeloare (De Nihilisten)."
