Keith Levene

Keith Levene was an early member of The Clash and The Flowers of Romance (most notable for also featuring a pre-Sex Pistols Sid Vicious). Although he never recorded with the Clash, he co-wrote "What's My Name", featured on their first album. Levene would later claim he had written or co-written several other songs on the same record, but occasionally he relinquishes this claim. After the Sex Pistols disintegrated, Levene co-founded Public Image Ltd (PiL) with John Lydon (a.k.a. Johnny Rotten). His guitar work was much imitated by several punk rockers and others, including The Edge of U2.

Iration Steppas

Mark Iration speaks in a booming voice; his dub roots sound system prides itself on being one of the very best and certainly one of the loudest in Europe; and the man even writes in capital letters. Everything about his is about giving his all. The sound system culture of sound-clashes boils down to holding your own against the other sound system, about feeding off each other, about raising the pace and winning the crowd.

Dokkebi Q

Dokkebi Q are an electro dub punk group formed at the later end of 2006 by visual artist and voice performer Kiki Hitomi and electronic bass conductor gorgonn.
While living in the inspirational place Dalston, East London, they found a mutual appreciation and understanding for 'black rebel music' which has formed the basis of the Dokkebi Q sound. With gorgonn's attacking DSP mashed and hybridized together with Kiki's bewitchingly smoky and dreamlike vocals, Dokkebi Q bring forth their own 'roots' from the indigenous Ainu tribe, Japan, Korea and the UK.
