My Music Sounds Like

OUR MUSIC IS (not sounds like - we are original!):
3Head: Mixmag reviewed us as: What you get when you mix the intensity of Joy Division with the space and rhythm of King Tubby!
Basically were as if Massive Attack and UNKLE had a lovechild

Uncle Fester On Acid:
(file under Dubtronica) he is the alter Ego of Pat's Doktor (On-U sounds record label sound archivist) and remixer as well as stand alone artist. Has opened for the likes of Lee "Scratch" Perry and remixed the likes of Adrian Sherwood, Youth & Gaudi, Dub Syndicate, African Head Charge, Afro Celt Sound System and many more
