“One of the finest Reggae crews in the UK” according to Time Out, Reggae Roast have had a massive year in 2013. With sell out events, critically acclaimed releases and massive festival appearances, they have cemented their place as the number one sound in the new wave of British Reggae.
With the ‘Telephone Riddim’, their first offering for 2014, they are starting the new year as they mean to go on with possibly their biggest release to date. Already a proven hit in the clubs, it is now being released to a wider audience with an official release on 12” vinyl and digital download alongside a classy music video to boot. This tune is UK dancehall fyah at its best - Run go tell a friend!
Ed West, also well known as the drummer from the highly respected band The Drop, on this occasion takes control of the buttons and hits us with a classic slice of UK dancehall that has been mashing up dances across the country. With 2 different cuts of equally high pedigree from 2 of the most exciting UK talents, Parly B and Jago, each with its own heavy weight dub version from UK legend Manasseh plus murderous Jungle remixes from J-Man and FLeCK this release is a sure fire anthem for 2014. .LIGHTER!
Parly B: What a year it has been for this man. Having established his reputation with the Skints, Parly has gone on to take 2013 by storm establishing himself as the most saught after MC on the UK dancehall scene with recent hits on Mungo’s Hi Fi’s Scotch Bonnet and Reggae Roast amoung many others. His track ‘Dem a Fight’ on this release is arguably his biggest and baddest to date and sets a message of intent for 2014. Watch out for this man, he is gonna be BIG! - Check out the video for Dem a Fight here:
Jago came to fame as the front man of dub/reggae outfit Onlyjoe and brings his rugged, energetic style to the release with great effect. Jago’s cut, entitled Ilani, is a tribute to his first daughter who has been a continual source of inspiration to him. He is currently putting the finishing touches on his debut album, entitled ‘Jago And Friends’ which is set to be released in early 2014 and is set to make big waves in the UK Reggae scene and beyond.
J-man delivers an absolute killer of a Jungle remix that is sure to excite Europe's vast sea of Jungle fanatics. Fast becoming one of the most talked about up and coming producers on the UK underground rave circuit, Bristol's dub plate munching badman has been taking the scene by storm with his trademark style of party flexed Ragga-Jungle. Having just signed to Run Tingz Records and with his debut album soon to drop, things are heating up for this exciting talent.
FLeCK: Next up we have FLeCK ,an electronic music producer extraordinaire hailing from Athens, Greece, who hits us with a down tempo 140 BPM Jungle reworking. RUFF an TUFF this is a hard hitting alternative to the original and brings brand new flavour to the release. Having made big waves in the electronic music scene since the 90s, FLeCK’s music has found its way into the record boxes of the likes Public Enemy’s DJ Lord, Rusko and many others as well featuring on Diplo’s Mad Decent blog and massive radio support.
Reggae Roast is building a formidable catalogue featuring some of the most exciting artists in the UK and beyond. Key players in the resurgence of the UK Roots scene over the past 5 years, they are a leading light in the new generation of dub music. 2013 was big but 2014 is set to be even bigger.
