REGGAE

Reggae Roast are one of the most vibrant, new reggae collectives in the UK and since 2007 they have been spreading their sound of conscious roots music across the globe. During this time they have contributed to some of the country’s greatest  musical movements, including; Glastonbury, Fabric, Bestival, The Barbican, Jazz Café, The Big Chill, Camden Crawl, and Outlook Festival, while building a reputation as the freshest roots sound in town.

 Following on from their guest show broadcast with David Rodigan on Kiss fm and with regular DJ bookings across Europe, founders Exel and Moodie now enjoy a bi-monthly residency event at The City Arts & Music Project Basement. Their ever popular basement session continues to promote the strength of real roots music and provides for the massive demand for a conscious and good natured club night. Previous guests include; Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Sly & Robbie, Finley Quaye, Mad Professor, Aba Shanti-I, Channel One Sound System, Iration Steppas and Adrian Sherwood to name a few.

 Reggae Roast Records was founded in 2009, and has developed a formidable sound with global recognition. The roster includes artists such as; Earl 16, Ghetto Priest & Kenny Knots, as well as remixes from the like of Rob Smith (RSD), RackNRuin, Mungo’s Hi Fi, Richie Phoe and Dark Arx.

 With a constantly expanding catalogue of CDs, 7” & 12” vinyl, Reggae Roast’s records are selling as far and wide as the Pacific Islands, while achieving indisputable support from David Rodigan (Kiss100Fm), Don Letts (Radio 6Music) & Rinse FM. Recently, Reggae Roast have released a compilation CD/LP titled ‘Lick It Back!’, a roundup of the biggest RR releases, alongside choice picks from the likes of Dubmatix, YT, Rod Taylor and many more.

 So, as you can see Reggae Roast are much more than just a great act, they're also fantastic party hosts, and have an ear for great tunes too. We look forward to watching these guys grow and grow!
