We also have a very special album review for you, The Resonators – The Constant. The Resonators have taken the reggae world by storm and this relase will surely see them cement their place!
Never being people to stick to the prescribed programme, this month sees UKRG giving its support to some genuinely ground breaking music with a review of Dizraeli and The Small Gods - Never Mind single. and Lazy Habits - Bulletin.

Some Minor Changes To This Site
Due to real life commitments with nearly all the UKRG team, we are having to cut back with our website and services offered. The core element of our site and the foundation we created 6 years ago will remain untouched. So new music reviews and interviews with the stars of Roots n Culture will continue as it always has. UKRG Radio will continue as usually and are still recruiting DJ's for weekly shows. However, the Downloads, Main Forums, Photo Gallery, Shop, UKRG Records have all now been taken offline to both save server space and administration time required to keep these services running smooth. The UKRG Radio site will continue as normal and there are plenty of discussions going on there amount its members and we try and update our site as often as we can with more news, reviews and interviews....
We will still be pushing on as always Jah Warrior....
