“blends highlife guitars and reggae with earnest folk and brightly soulful vocals.
The sounds are varied yet simply catchy; the spirit is infectiously upbeat.” (METRO, London)
“Reggae master” (Evening Standard, London)
2024 will see the release of Planetman’s 3rd studio album, which will be featuring the song Take Me As I Am – a collaboration with dub producer extraordinaire GAUDI (Steel Pulse, Lee Scratch Perry), among other reggae, dub and afrobeat tunes.
A founding member of iconic Dalston venue Passing Clouds, Planetman’s monthly Little Blue Ball parties spanned over a decade, and have become legendary for their magical atmosphere and round-the-block queues! . Seven years running the Sunday Night Jam Sessions at the venue established him as a key figure in the London music scene and led to further work as a promoter of World Music. Projects include founding the Global Beats Festival, which he curated and headlined at Wilton’s Music Hall, and World Music Jam a successful commission for the BBC’s Lonely Planet event.
Planetman’s skill as a guitarist and authentic, larger than life personality have landed him gigs backing Reggae heroes, Dawn Penn, Winston Reedy and Winston Groovy. He has taken his inspiriting message of unity through music across the globe, from Budapest to Ko Pha Ngan, and was invited to Tanzania by the family of Remi Ongala to play at a memorial show in the star’s honour.
Planetman’s last album – Love Rebel – is the embodiment of the life and work of a musician who lives by the message in his music. The album deals with themes of love as a spiritual and unifying force and the true freedom of refusing to submit to a soulless system.
Described as ‘Reggae master’ by the Evening Standard, his current work has a distinctly Dub flavour. His single NO ONE CAN STOP US was also remixed by Gaudi and legendary producer Martin ‘Youth’ Glover (Paul McCartney/Pink Floyd/ The Verve) – whose version has been selected to feature on Liquid Sound Design Records’ compilation ‘Music to Get High To’.
