From working with the likes of The Clash and Bob Marley to colliding genres with Big Audio Dynamite, still presenting hisown radio show on BBC 6Music, winning a Grammy and receiving an honorary doctorate for his contribution to cultureDon Letts appears to have done it all. Indeed along with the release of his best selling autobiography ‘There and BlackAgain’ last year and ‘Rebel Dread’ a film documenting his life released this year you’d be forgiven for thinking he had. Butthere’s one thing the 66-year old polymath hasn’t done… until now…. His debut track as a solo artist and the first taste of his debut album, titled ‘OuttaSync’, which was produced by Gaudi and released on April 28th, 2023.
Don continues to D.J nationally and internationally playing strictly old and new school dub reggae. His set is in the spirit of his time as DJ at London’s legendary Roxy club back in ’77. From the days of Punk Rock to present day Don has always been drawn towards musical projects. After d.j’ing at the Roxy and whilst directing videos for many other acts he created the band Basement Five, released a single with members of John Lydon’s P.I.L, managed the Slits and collaborated with members of Trouble Funk. He recently recorded a reggae version of the London Calling!
In the mid 80’s he formed the group ‘Big Audio Dynamite’ with Mick Jones (ex-Clash). He went on to perform and co-write four albums with B.A.D achieving several hits on both sides of the Atlantic including the top ten hit E=Mc2. The band recently reformed for a world tour to sell out shows and critical acclaim.
