Sadly Uzimon has cancelled his appearance at Bestival 2014
When UZIMON first appeared onto the New York City Reggae scene in 2010, collective eyebrows were raised, lines divided, and panties twisted. Here was a non-Jamaican reggae artist obliterating any prescribed dogma that the local non-Jamaican reggae artists had convinced themselves had to be strictly adhered to.
Proving that his eccentricity, megalomania, abrasive humor and outlandish antics onstage and off, are more than a welcome boon in entertainment, because of his inexorable dedication to capturing the true sound of the dancehall, rub-a-dub, and rocksteady revival. His love and respect for the source material is undeniable. Also, It is rumoured that he can kill a man with lyrical bullets. This has yet to be documented but keep your wits about you as Uzimon takes to our shiny new Reggae Roots stage at Bestival 2014.
