Gold Steppers are soulful, sincere, suave with a touch of class. Writing their own tunes, they aim to spread a POSITIVE message and celebrate and capture the golden era of ska and reggae, echoing the sounds of The Skatalites, Alton Ellis, and Toots & the Maytals.
The Barefoot Bandit are a sparkly new-wave reggae/dub band based in Devon, UK. Their noise comprises of an electrifying blend of modern roots reggae, bass-heavy riddims, deep dark dub and spine-tingling brass lines.
