Ratrock 2021 The Downsetters



One the UK’s leading original Ska & Reggae bands.

Formed in 2009 and based in Ipswich UK. We are a 6 piece playing our own unique brand of Interskalactic Ska &  Luna Reggae and our sound is proving popular not only with the UK crowds but fans in the States and Europe.  

2011 saw the release of our debut E.P 'The Interskalactic House Sessions'  followed by the our summer scorcher vinyl single 'Skanga In You Djanga!' which generated a lot of interest in the Ska scene nationally and internationally.

In the summer of 2012 we headlined the UK'S largest free music festival as part of the IP-ART festival in Ipswich and have stacked up rave reviews across the globe as well as being featured on many radio stations. In between a busy gigging schedule we released our debut album ' We Are Now Leaving The Future'  which got some great reviews and sold to all corners of the globe.

Our critically acclaimed third single ’The Twilight Zone’ reached #13 in the Amazon reggae charts.

We have gained a reputation for our energetic live shows and have shared the stage with many legends from the Ska world including Bad Manners, members of The Skatalites, Madness & The Specials as well as backing legends Kieth & Tex on their hit ‘Stop That Train’. In 2014 we played many festivals nationwide including 2 nights at the world famous Glastonbury! 

Our second album ‘The Asylum Hotel’ is mixed and produced by Grammy nominated producer Daniel Boyle who has worked with the legendary producer  Lee ‘ Scratch’ Perry.
