8-piece funk reggae outfit Backbeat Sound System are a band laden with groove, their up-tempo song craft drawing from numerous influences in creation of a tight, elated sun-clasped sound. Since forming in the charming Cornish idyll of St Austell, Backbeat have been smashing up stages all across the UK. BBSS transcend genre limitations - this is original sound, groovy and affecting. Over their two debut EPs, the band have honed a bass-led party sound that is as infectious as it is sonically interesting. On record, they use the full potential of the studio to craft a highly dynamic approach to recording, spacious multi-tracking arrangements making the best of the format - but live, they are a different beast. The ‘serious pop’ songs’ inherent strengths come to the fore and explode in a haze of onstage energy and pumping rhythm.

Over the Summers of 2010/11, Backbeat toured the UK festival circuit with the Chai Wallahs stage, and shared bills across the country with the likes of Cypress Hill, Easy Star All-Stars, Plan B, Tinie Tempah, The Streets and Dub Pistols. They will be returning in 2012 with a reel of UK and European appearances, so anticipate the uptempo vibe, don your dancing shoes and get on down to your next
