The Movement
The Movement
The Movement's sixth studio album, GOLDEN, was released April 8, 2016, on Rootfire Cooperative. It debuted at #1 on the Billboard Reggae Chart. The album has been added to regular rotation on SiriusXM's "The Joint" and is receiving commercial radio play in cities across the United States.

Formed in 2004 by a trio of Sublime and Pixies fans, Joshua Swain, Jordan Miller, and John Ruff, aka DJ Riggles, launched The Movement with their "alternative reggae" debut album, ON YOUR FEET. In 2008, the group met Chris DiBeneditto, a Philadelphia-based producer who had worked with like-minded acts such as Slightly Stoopid and G. Love & Special Sauce.

Relocating to Philadelphia, they recorded SET SAIL at DiBeneditto's Philadelphonic Studios. The Movement expanded with the addition of Jason "Smiles" Schmidt on bass and Gary Jackson on drums. In 2012, Miller left the group, and the trio, now fronted by Swain, released their fourth album SIDE BY SIDE, debuting at #2 on the Billboard Reggae Chart. In 2014 The Movement released BENEATH THE PALMS, a surprise acoustic album as a free gift to their fans. Shortly thereafter they began working on what would become their finest album to date, GOLDEN. Keyboardist Ross Bogan joined the group full time in Spring 2016.
The Holdup
The Holdup
The Holdup is a California based Reggae band with heavy influences in the genres of Hip Hop and Pop. The group has released five full-length albums to date, all of which were written and produced by frontman Mike Garmany. Since releasing their debut album, Stay Gold, the band has garnered a great deal of commercial success and moved on to sell tens of thousands of records nationwide. Stay Gold debuted at #1 on the iTunes Reggae charts and the single "Good Times" was on rotation at a number of college radio programs and the coveted mainstream San Francisco station, Live 105. Every album from The Holdup since then has found the band reaching a new milestone. From 2010's Confidence topping the iTunes Reggae chart and leading the band to receiving iTunes' Best New Reggae Artist of 2010 award, to 2011's Still Gold peaking at #2 on Billboard's reggae chart. Their heavy urban appeal has even led to features on Mac Miller's "MostDope" blog and 2 Chainz' "Most Expensivest Shit" video series presented by GQ. When the band first began performing their original songs at local venues around San Jose, a fan base quickly developed for their catchy multi-genre delivery. The success of their live show and the growing popularity around album sales and radio play found them performing and touring with a number of amazing artists. From Reggae mainstays like Collie Buddz and Steel Pulse, to the more mainstream side of things with Rebelution, Dirty Heads and Iration. They've even shared stages with the likes of 2 Chainz and Rae Sremmurd.

The Holdup's new album is set to release in the Fall of 2016 and will be followed by an extensive touring schedule that includes a headline album tour and runs with Collie Buddz and The Movement.
Nappy Riddem
Nappy Riddem
Nappy Riddem are the Original Rastars. Rex Riddem, Mustafa Akbar, and Ashish "Hash" Vyas formed this ragga-soul electro-funk super group. The trio is a unique combination of longtime collaborators with independent music industry stalwarts Afrika Bambaataa, Thievery Corporation, Thunderball, Fort Knox Five and Gogogo Airheart. The three cherry picked an all-star cast of D.C. artists to record with for their debut album "One World Sovereignty". Edgy guitar riffs by Rob Myers (Thievery Corporation, Fort Knox Five, Thunderball), funky saxophone from Frank Mitchell jr. (Thievery Corporation See-I), and Rhymes from Asheru (Unspoken Heard, "Boondocks" theme song) are all included. Something special is created when the contributions of these superstars are blended with the sultry soul of Akbar's voice, Hash's dubby basslines, and Rex's funky afro-Latin percussion.

Nappy Riddem was recently nominated for a Washington Area Music Association award as 2010 best performance artist in electronica. The Nappy crew just finished 2010 playing several sold out shows, headlining the Night Fever Wax Poetics party at the Scoot Inn Austin, opening for Bassnectar at the 9:30 Club in DC, and playing the CD release party for their label mates Los Empresarios at U St. Music Hall in DC.

Fresh from playing 3 showcases during SXSW, Rex Riddem recently finished mixing down Nappy Riddem's debut album, due to be released September 2011 on Fort Knox Recordings. Their recent releases, deemed "groovy" and "awesome" by Steve Aoki, are featured on Fort Knox Recordings "The New Gold Standard 2″ compilation featuring a guest appearance by Asheru. Nappy Riddem's sound, which is affectionately called "the Riddem Method" has even traveled as far as Budapest, receiving regular airplay on Hungary's FM 90.3 as well as nationally on KEXP in NYC and Seattle.
