Solo Banton

After a long career in the reggae music business as a top soundman & producer, Solo began as a recording artist relatively recently after linking with Kris Kemist of Reality Shock Records. Solo was immediately recognised for his vintage deejay style and intelligent (often comical) lyrical content, and soon found himself in great demand for his talents, working with the likes of Jahtari, Maffi, Mungos Hifi, Zion Gate Hifi and many other sounds & labels worldwide. Solo has also been touring extensively in Europe, performing both on soundsystem an with Reality Shocks' resident UPPER CUT BAND in the UK, France, Spain, Norway, Sweeden, Denmark, Germany, Switzerland, Sardinia & Serbia..   In his short career as a recording artist, Solo has taken the world by storm with a series of hit songs & energy filled live performances. Most recently released is the album's title track 'Walk Like Rasta' which deals with the topical issue of (in Solo's own words) "what kind of role a Rastafarian artist should play in the music world". The music video caused a stir, recieving over 2000 youtube views in its first day. 'Walk Like Rasta' the single is available in 7" vinyl format from October on Urban Sedated Records, featuring a Bush Chemists Dub Mix on the flip side. The song also appears on the promo CD of the October 2009 edition of the French Reggae Magazine 'Natty Dread', along with an interview with So
