Resonators established themselves on the UK scene with their self-released debut album in May 2010. The fruit of many months of labour, both in the studio and on the live circuit, the album was excellently received and gained radio support across the UK, Europe and beyond from the likes of Mark Lamarr on BBC Radio 2 and David Rodigan (Kiss FM).
Here’s what reggae guru Rodigan had to say about the record:
“In these days of homogenised, digital recordings lacking in any individual sound or identity it is most encouraging to hear something so truly original… most refreshing”
Since the release of the debut album Resonators have teamed up with London based label WahWah 45s and put out two beautiful 7” heavyweight vinyl singles. ‘Sweet Love Affair’ and ‘Gold Getter’ awarded the band with continued support from Rodigan on both his Kiss FM and BBC Radio 2 shows, as well as from Craig Charles (BBC 6Music) and regular plays across Europe and America.
Resonators live show promises a high energy and uplifting experience, a reminder of reggae’s true place and influence on the dance floor. 2011 has seen the band grace the stage at legendary venues including Brixton Acadmey (supporting Fat Freddy’s Drop!), Koko and the Jazz Cafe, as well as at top festivals – Glastonbury, Outlook and Secret Garden to name a few.
Resonators third single on WahWah 45s will be released in January and is set to further cement the bands reputation as one of the most exciting and highly regarded reggae acts in the UK today.
The band will be celebrating the release of their brand new Live EP at the Wah Wah Christmas Special!
It’s over a year since South London’s production team JetTricks debut album ‘Remote Control’ was released to great critical acclaim, and Paul Elliott and Jamie Lawrence have been busy in the studio diligently recording their follow up “All One Word”.
Not to be content with their signature infectious grooves and hooks, they collaborated with a host of singers and musicians including Detroit’s soul man Marcus Malone, UK songstress Andrea Britton, the ballistic Hammond of Stephen ‘Lord’ Large and ‘Noisettes’ guitar wizard Dan Smith.
With JetTricks, diversity is the order of the day and their creative spontaneity results in a journey through soul classics of the future to heavy dance floor fillers, uplifting new soul/pop to zen hip hop and laid back acoustic atmospheres. Their love of all music is evident and remains the core of their belief that different genres can lay side by side on the same record, and boundaries are just there to be crossed.
When writing, recording and producing “All One Word”, JetTricks were not afraid to evolve and branch out in these different directions, crafting with their collaborators a song based, bold, more commercial record that fully retains their musical integrity, whilst signalling a creative leap forward that's merely a hint at their future possibilities.

Album Review: Resonators – Imaginary People [Wah Wah 45s, 30th September 2016]
What is a resonator? A resonator, according to a quick Google search, “produces a deep, full, reverberating sound.” A band of resonators, then, produces deep, full, reverberating sound and sounds, first and foremost, which one may call music, for it was composed to be considered as such: songs that enchant….
