About

 

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 tour 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 their everlasting fans an extremely live showcase with singers, DJ’s and Touring acts from both the U.K and Jamaica.
