Rodigan MBE

rodigan-mbe

His long and illustrious career began in the late seventies and continues today in a truly amazing way thanks to his show on the radio station BBC Xtra and his constant search for good music, including crossovers between electronic genres and dancehall creating exciting new styles . As a radio DJ David Rodigan has set unprecedented standards in the past with the reception in the studio of some of the true reggae greats including Augustus Pablo, Bob Marley and Dennis Brown.

In the golden age of dancehall he shared moments with Jamaican superstars like Stone Love , Bodyguard or Kilimanjaro in dance halls and countless clashes. Jamaicans love the passion and skill that he has always shown towards his music as evidenced whenever he takes to the stage, especially during clashes, of which many around the world is an absolute master. The prestigious label Ministry Of Sound used him as the compiler of their latest compilation 'Masterpiece' .
