Laid Blak was brought together after producer DJ Bunjy joined forces with MC Joe Peng to conquer the 90’s jungle and rave scenes.
The duo’s musical direction took a course that has led them to seek out some of Bristol’s finest : Lui the bass player, Stacy on drums, Scotty the guitarist, Sam on keys and Tita vocalist. What started as a studio project evolved into this acclaimed live act – Laid Blak.
Their first 12” record “Scream and Shout” went bouncing up the playlists on BBC 1 Xtra, Kiss FM and Choice FM.
Chasing Shadows remix of ‘Red’, has had over 2 million! YouTube views, proved to be an obvious favourite when performed live!
Laid Blak was signed to Brown Punk Records, a new record label set up by Tricky and Chris Blackwell (who founded Island Records and introduced the world to Bob Marley).
The band then released their album Red & Blak with one of Bristol’s hottest labels: Reel Me Records.
Already legends in their hometown, New York’s Village Voice, DJ and Touch magazine have zoned in on the band, giving them excellent reviews. Laid Blak have won an army of local and international support. They gained a coveted Rototom award for Best Northern European Reggae Band and have played alongside big guns such as Aswad, The Wailers, Nitin Sawhney, Toots and Maytals, Desmond Dekker, Lee Scratch Perry, Reef, John Legend, Luciano, Easy Allstars, McFly, Julian Marley and Ed Sheeran.
