8-piece funk reggae outfit Backbeat Sound System are a band laden with groove, their up-tempo song craft drawing from numerous influences in creation of a tight, elated sun-clasped sound. Since forming in the charming Cornish idyll of St Austell, Backbeat have been smashing up stages all across the UK. Backbeat Sound System transcend genre limitations - this is original sound, groovy and affecting. Over their three debut EPs, the band have honed a bass-led party sound that is as infectious as it is sonically interesting. On record, they use the full potential of the studio to craft a highly dynamic approach to recording, spacious multi-tracking and arrangements making the best of the format - but live, they are a different beast. The ‘serious pop’ songs’ inherent strengths come to the fore and explode in a haze of onstage energy and pumping rhythm.
KING SOLOMON is a Roots-Reggae collective from south-west England.
Since formation in 2012 KING SOLOMON has grown and developed into a recognisable name in the UK reggae scene.
Championing a hard-edge roots/dub style combined with 'Juke Joint' Jazz and blues music, KING SOLOMON makes for a curious sound.
