The sounds are varied yet simply catchy; the spirit is infectiously upbeat.” (METRO, London)

More about Planetman
At the turn of the millennium, Planetman was drawn to London as a hub for multi-cultural music, and 2005 saw the independent release of his first album Unite! He kept on pushing boundaries with extended live shows and trance-inducing jam sessions, including an infamous 2006 Sunrise Festival set lasting for six hours! Word of his full-power performances spread, and soon he was tearing up stages at Boom, Glastonbury and Big Chill festivals, Notting Hill Carnival and had a residency at Secret Garden Party.
A founding member of iconic London venue Passing Clouds, Planetman’s monthly Little Blue Ball parties spanned over a decade, and have become legendary for their eclectic mix of both music and people, and consistently sky-high vibes. 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.
Of his second studio album – Love Rebel – the song No One Can Stop Us has been remixed by Dub legend Gaudi (Steel Pulse, Lee Scratch Perry) and acclaimed producer Martin ‘Youth’ Glover (Paul McCartney/Killing Joke/ The Verve) – whose version has been selected to feature on Liquid Sound Design Records’ compilation ‘Music to Get High To’.
