Masters of Reggae & Dub: Prince Fatty & Horseman (UK)

Apart from being one of the best recording engineer in the reggae and dub scene, Prince Fatty has also released modern dub reggae music. Throughout his career, Prince has produced various albums and remixes and has collaborated with numerous artists. Prince Fatty is not only a producer but also a great performer and has performed at festivals and events such as Boom Town, Bestival and Reggae Central amongst many others.

Horseman needs no introduction! His hard-hitting beats have backed the best Reggae artists in the business; Max Romeo, Little Roy and many more. Famous for his precision timing and fearsome delivery he is just as comfortable on the mic as behind the kit.

At Earth Garden 2019, the duo will be performing with one of the best upcoming female reggae and soul voices, Shniece Mcnemanin.


Legend of Reggae & Ska: Tippa Irie & The Lockdown Band (UK)

Tippa Irie has graced all continents with his music and performances and to date, he continues to be one of the most consistent Reggae & Ska artists around and is not afraid to continually reinvent himself and venture into different genres to keep his music fresh and current. Tippa Irie is not just a successful performer, he’s also a top radio DJ, record producer, and owner of his own Studio and remains one of the most successful entertainers to come out of the UK and continues to fly the flag for the UK scene wherever he goes.


Champion Selecta of Drum ‘n’ Bass & Jungle: Benny Page (UK)


Benny Page certainly needs no introduction to the Drum ‘n’ bass and Jungle fans. Heavily inspired by the bass lines of Jungle, Ragga, Hip-Hop and Dub, Benny Page has played a definitive role in shaping the sounds of the UK’s Drum ‘n’ Bass movement and his name has become synonymous with tight production, heavyweight dance-floor tracks and clinical mixing skills.

Storming onto the scene with his 2006 anthem “Turn Down The Lights”, he has gone on to release a slew of seminal ragga jungle cuts, as well as numerous well received productions across the dance music spectrum and has collaborated with many exciting artists including Gyptian, MC Spyda, Topcat,  Jessie J, Tinnie Tempah, Misha B, Snoop Lion, Arlisa & Nas.
