Rebel Control evolved from the now notorious reggae jams held by Andy Baron and Concrete Johnson in a derelict shop in West London spawning the 2009 album Jammin At Rebel H.Q. mixed by Mike Pelanconi (Lily Allen / Gregory Isaacs).
The band's love and respect for reggae is still very much in evidence but the sound now also encompasses more current vibes along with elements of dancehall and hip hop.
Rebel Control are fast becoming festival favourites mashing up main stages throughout the UK and Europe, most recently playing in Poland and Montenegro and supporting acts ranging from Tinie Tempah to reggae legends Luciano and Mad professor.

Left Step Band are all about a diverse sound and a penchant for bringing the everyday to life with big hooks and a killer melody. Over long days and strenuous nights the band have sweated and toiled, shaping themselves into the raucous unit they are today. Never short on song craft, they have rapidly generated a group of songs which befit their name, left-field, out of step but at all times danceable and with an instinctive eye for a groove and a chorus.
As a live proposition Left Step Band are something else altogether. MC'ing meets singing and swaggering beats meet soulful hooks - all imbued with a sense of timeless storytelling and adept lyrical narrative. It is this musical diversity and originality which has seen the band share bills with both urban acts and with friends from the indie fraternity. Moreover, gigs with the likes of Finlay Quaye have proved that they can mix it with the best, on stages large or small, to crowds old or young and with an easy appeal which runs through every note of the music they produce.
