Nottingham’s own Adam Prescott is one the most exciting new producers in the UK Digital Roots scene. Adam has quickly established himself as one of the key players in the re-emergence of British Reggae, with first class original songs featuring the likes of Daddy Freddy, Brother Culture, Dynamite MC, Charlie P & Tippa Irie to name but a few. In addition to his releases on ‘Mindstep’ and Nice Up!’ Records he is very much in-demand for his memorable remixes for artists such as Horace Andy, Mungo’s Hi-Fi + Dub Pistols, plus many more. Add to that consistent play on BBC Radio One, 1Xtra and Rinse FM, Adam is becoming one of the hottest prospects in the revival of soundsystem music. Not forgetting Reggae Roasts’ top DJ!
