Saxon Studio started playing out
as a party set, back in 1976, playing at local
parties, weddings and small functions in the
community of Lewisham, South East London.
Throughout the years to follow,
Saxon became known as the Number One U.K Sound
System, who were in a class of their own with their
Dub plates, MC’s and DJ’s, and they were feared
worldwide by other Sound Systems.
In 1982, Saxon had a dance called
“DJ Jamboree” held in Lewisham. That dance was the
start of Saxon’s popularity and people from all over
the globe would come to future Saxon dances. Due to
their popularity Saxon was given a record label by Greensleeve Records in1984, where DJ's like
Daddy Colonel, Daddy Sandy, Daddy Rusty and more
famously Tippa Irie, had chart topping success.
In 1985, Saxon stepped up the
pace and continued to reign, by becoming the first
U.K Sound to do a full tour of the U.S.A. The
was a great accomplishment and gained Saxon
worldwide recognition. Since then, Saxon have toured
countries such as Germany, Bermuda, Sweden,
Zimbabwe, Jamaica, Israel and Holland, to name but a
few countries where Saxon have a great following.
In 1992, Saxon triumphed yet
again by retaining their title as U.K’s Number One
Reggae Sound by winning the Sound Cup Clash against
‘Luv Injection, ‘V-Rocket’ and ‘Stereo Phonic. After
this victory, Saxon won the title 'Number One Sound
System in the World' in the 1993 World Cup Clash, in
Milton Keynes UK (against other popular
international sound systems such as ‘King Addis',
‘Bodyguard' and ‘Kebra Negus’).
Today, Saxon Sound have reached
the pinnacle of their trade and command a full
following where ever they go. Saxon are still
touring the globe and have been the first choice
Sound System for many performing artistes, when
doing live stage shows..
Saxon at the Notting Hill
Carnival, always makes a special effort to give
