Draped in the rich colours of African cloth, his trademark staff in hand, and his dreadlocks wrapped regally on his head, Anthony B embodies all that it is spiritual and proactive about Reggae music. This artiste has been steadfast in his mission to represent the poor and oppressed, using sharp lyrics to confront political injustices and bring the issues of the people to the forefront. In the process, he has raised the quality of performance standards and lyrical content for the industry, through the release of 13 albums, over 1000 singles and appearances on over 100 albums in the last 14 years.

In 1979, Mikey Dread and his brother Jah T began to play at blues parties and local dances having spent many years under the watchful eye of their father, owner operator of the famous Admiral Bailey Sound. They chose the name Channel One in homage to the legendary Jamaican record label of the same name whose tunes featured heavily in those early selections. Inspired by Bob Marley’s belief in uniting people through reggae music, Mikey was keen to introduce new people to dub reggae music and started touring around universities, where he secured a solid fan base. Channel One’s mission is to break down barriers via reggae music, they have achieved this by playing new venues, new festivals and different countries, taking their unique sound to Australia, New Zealand, Israel, Turkey and all over Europe. Channel One also celebrated 30 consecutive years at the Notting Hill Carnival making them one of the must see soundsystems for attendees to Europes biggest street festival.
It's almost impossible hearing a party being advertised without the name ZJ Liquid attached to it. The high in-demand disc jockey, who plies his trade on ZIP 103FM, has made quite a name for himself over the last seven years. Not only as a disc jock but recently he has been heating up the airwaves as an artiste. From creating slangs ('Yu zee it') to having a gut feeling of the 'next big thing'(Mavado among others), ZJ Liquid seems to have his ear to the street. All this, he said, comesnaturally because of his love for music. "This is just me. What you hear on the radio and see on-stageis just me. Mi love mi music," he said.
Combining dub and dubstep music into one organic whole, while keeping the both foundations of styles in tact, Egoless utilises old Jamaican dub techniques and hardware (analog mixer, tape, tape echoes, spring reverbs, instruments). In the same spirit he is doing the performances live utilizing the same techniques.
