King Spinner
'King Spinner' a title given to him by the late great singer / producer Mikey Dread (Dread at the Controls), has been into Jamaican music since Ska evolved, and was no stranger to West End clubs like Take 5, Limbo bar and early Ladbrook Grove Shabeens. A veteran selecta since 1978 who has played alongside foundation sound systems Saxon, King Tubby’s, Sir Coxone, etc, is certainly no stranger to big names within the Reggae scene. Sinner also has a huge passion for collecting Reggae oriented Jungle / D&B (since 1995), and has amassed an interesting collection of rare, early and international pieces.
Duke Horse
Duke Horse has been a regular on the Brighton circuit since moving to the coast 8 years ago. Starting off playing at a weekly seafront hip hop night, a love of Reggae soon came to the fore.. He has played all over since then representing for Unity HiFi, Jungle Alliance and Future Dub and, as a recent recruit for NICENESS, hopes to continue flinging down riddims at a party near you soon.
