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.
