Their presence in the music industry is tangible, and their artists have gone down in music history.

Formed in 2004, London based Trojan Sound System are an institution in Sound System culture and have toured the globe to spread their message of love and unity through the power of Ska, Rocksteady, Roots Reggae, Dub, Dancehall and UK Bass music.Dennis Alcapone, one of the original DJs, is a true veteran of reggae and dancehall. With a career spanning decades, his appearance list reads like a whos who of reggae, and with Alcapone manning the tables, expect the dance floor to come alive under the addictive sounds of skanking guitars, driving bass, and drunkenly singable tunes.King among reggae and dub fans, we proudly present Mad Professor as next up in this fiery line up. Mad Professor has collaborated with a dizzying amount of notable artists, including reggae artists such as Lee «Scratch» Perry, Sly and Robbie, Pato Banton, and Jah Shaka — and thats only naming a few! His skills are unmatched and his sets are always on point.Next up, we have BBC6 Musics very own Don Letts. Known in the late 70's as the DJ that single handedly turned a whole generation of punks onto reggae, Don Letts does not fuck about. Guaranteed to bang out the best of the best in both old and new tunes from the genre, its impossible to keep still during one of his sets.Benny Page, master of Jungle, will take the reins on heart-pounding, floor shaking, down right dirty tunes thatll have you living and breathing rapid fire drum breaks and sweet hooks for what will feel like hours on end. And yes, youll love every minute.Finally, this earth shattering night of reggae, jungle, ska, dancehall, and dub will end with Sweetie from Sisters of Reggae, known for pulling out ska, rocksteady, reggae, revival, roots and early digital reggae bangers from the 80s and 90s.
