Expect to hear non-stop Reggae, Roots, Ska, Studio 1, Rocksteady, Rubadub and exclusive Dubplates selected by Sir Coxsone Outernational Sound, led by the legendary ‘Lloyd Coxsone’.

The legendary UK soundman & record producer, Lloyd Coxsone, began his career in the sixties, soon after arriving from Jamaica. He was one of the first soundmen to play at West End clubs like Tiles and the Roaring Twenties, where a generation of British pop stars like the Beatles, Rolling Stones and Elton John first heard the music of Jamaica. Coxsone then dominated the seventies, when Bob Marley and Dennis Brown were among his closest allies, as heard on unforgettable dub-plates from that era. Lloyd is an elder statesman with more than fifty years’ history behind him, but he knows there’s still a place in the music for those who are young at heart and willing to embrace change. After several ill-fated reunions with past members Lloydie now has a new crew working alongside him, and who can help him replenish his legacy for reggae audiences of today.

Culture B and Felix Irie are well known to reggae fans on the south coast, where they’ve been performing at reggae events since the mid-nineties.

Culture B is of Caribbean heritage although he grew up in West London, where he served his dancehall apprenticeship on sounds like Foundation, Prince Melody, One Love and I Spy. After honing his mic skills he studied electronics and became proficient in sound technology. He’s recently designed and built his own 35k sound-system, and has also worked with a cross-section of London-based reggae producers and soundmen, including Reggae Roast, Channel One, Aba Shanti and the jungle specialist Jacky Murda.

DJ Felix is the son of well-known reggae journalist, John Masouri. He too, was raised in a musical environment – a world that he’s since made his own by hosting club nights, promoting gigs, compiling albums for record companies and mastering the art of playing reggae music for every occasion.
