September 2018 - Promotional Material


Now Live On Bandcamp

We are now hosting material on Bandcamp for the labels AD Studio & Channel One (UK) - our associate Johnny Beat is currently managing both accounts. Along with vintage material, you'll also find contemporary works being posted. Both channels plan to expand overtime to include new and exclusive releases. Check them out below, along with the promotional videos on YouTube.

Dub Collection Incoming!

Coming up, end of the month, we also have the widely anticipated collection - Best of Alien Dread and Martin Campbell in Dub. The stock is ready to be distributed and we are beginning to promote the material online. The album represents the most dynamic arrangement of the material; originally recorded in 2010/2011.

Shout Out To Jah Leo - much respect!

We have a new friend and promoter based in Brazil, a really likeable guy, highly motivated, and well grounded. The Brazilian Reggae scene has really boomed in the last few years; with new labels and artists stepping up to the plate, and we appreciate the support, and are happy to bump-fists across the ocean. Check out Leo and friends on the links below the photo.

Alien Dread & Martin Campbell in Dub (2018 remix)

In 2010 Martin Campbell supplied a selection of his music to AD Studio (boss: Alien Dread) for special Dub remixes which were then released on limited edition vinyl and 3 CDs. These original mixes are still available through specific vendors. Alien Dread decided to sit down at the desk this year and revisit his work. He selected 12 of his favourite tunes and remixed the tracks using the new studio equipment. The selection on offer is harder, more dynamic and augmented in places. We hope you agree that these mixes represent the definitive edition of this dual-project to date. Check out the samples below and help us spread the word, by sharing this article on your social media account. The collection is now on general release, scroll down for further information.

Release Highlight: Roots Survivor - Kendrick Andy

Available on CD in digipack format:



Roots Survivor is a collection of hard-Roots vocal tracks co-produced by Kendrick Andy with Martin Campbell at the helm. The basic rhythms were originally recorded at Channel One UK in 1993 and the music in this particular collection was voiced during 2006/2007.

Throughout the album Kendrick continues his long-time lyrical style focusing on spiritual & political themes; chanting down Babylon, over vintage 'Hi-Tech Roots' rhythm work.

In this 2015 re-issue, the tracks were passed to AD Studio for re-mastering, which served to enhance the overall sound; adding more punch to the drums, and augmenting the low end, with an enhanced bass presence.

Retro Cassette - unearthed (for sale)

Back in 2013 when we were flying under the flag of Reggae Retro Records, we produced a limited edition cassette, featuring artists we were promoting. The cassette was aimed at a 'music event' taking place that year and we sold units initially and then removed the item from the catalogue.

Recently, after sifting stock, we found a couple of trays of the cassettes in storage, so, if you want a copy, they are still available.

Admittedly, this is somewhat of a novelty item, given today's market, but there are a few of us who still appreciate the cassette format and it has to be said, the actual sound quality is pretty solid and the format itself, has a unique look and feel.

For this release, all tracks were mastered at AD Studio (UK).


The cassette is available for £5 + shipping (PayPal)

Background info:

As we all know, Reggae music was created in the ghettos and has helped many people in their struggle & creating many opportunities for those who worked hard for it. Reggae developed its own alternative industry with the support of sound systems and gave opportunities to so many deejays, toaster and singers. In Brazil, with the rise of sound systems inspired by the UK and JA scene, Monkey Jhayam was one of the first artists to express his art and also build a solid and prominent career alongside many sound systems in his country. Out of São Mateus, Monkey broke barriers and has been collaborating with producers from all over the world with his uplifting Portuguese message.

Kendrick Andy’s Roots song “Great Old Men” lends itself to a new version by the top Brazilian Reggae artist, Monkey Jhayam. The 7" single features back to back versions, both in English (A) and Portuguese (B) of Great Old Men. Rhythm: Alien Dread. The tracks also feature Alvin Davis (Hornz), Asha B (Congas & Percussion) with Rhythm/Lead Guitar from Steven ‘Marley’ Wright.
