Nine-piece Brighton and London based band,Resonators, have firmly established themselves on the dub reggae scene, finding a unique and distinctsound. Resonators' music embraces diverse influences, making their music relevant in today's Bassculture as well as reminding usof reggae's uplifting influence on the dance floor.
Inspired by the meditative quality and universal appeal of Jamaican roots music the band radiate a playful and unified stage presence. The two lead singers Kassia Zermon and Faye Houston wipe away the notion of the big-ego front man whilst Darren JamTone provides live dub effects, and the balance is set. Following its release in 2010, Resonators'¼ eponymous debut album gained worldwide and national radio support on BBC Radio 2, BBC 6 Music and Kiss FM from the likes of Mark Lamarr, David Rodigan and Craig Charles.
Since signing with Wah Wah 45s, the band have released fourheavyweight 7" singles, receivinginternational radio play and widespread acclaim.
The last couple of years have seen them play at legendary venues including Brixton Academy, Koko, Jazz Cafe and at top UK and European festivals includingGlastonbury, Green Man and Outlook Croatia. To date, the band have shared stages with Horace Andy, Fat Freddy's Drop, Mad Professor and TheSkatalites amongst many others. This summer saw them at Lovebox, Sunrise Celebration and Notting Hill Carnival, to name but a few.
The eagerly anticipated second album and first for Wah Wah 45s, The Constant, will be unleashed on 5th November 2012 on vinyl, CD and download. It fuses direct and healing messages about today's world with progressive roots-inspired dub and a deep soulful sound. The first single taken from the album, Surrender was released earlier this year and was described by David Rodigan MBE as 'British Reggae at its best.'
