Chainska Brassika

This mischievous rabble from London have been causing mischief since school, spreading their contagious horn driven ska anthems across the UK, mainland Europe and beyond.

Chainska Brassika are firm party favourites, getting crowds rocking from Glastonbury to Nottinghill Carnival, Rototom Sunplash to Outlook - and even touring the island of Jamaica. Well known for regularly opening for UK ska legends Madness, Chainska are at the forefront of the new UK ska movement with their crazy live show seeing them perform regularly on europe’s biggest stages.

Their debut album 'Skinna' was released in late 2015 following the band being crowned winners of the World Reggae Contest in Poland, beating over 100 bands from 28 countries - despite being predominantly a ska band. The album was recorded in a style true to the bands live sound - raw and energetic, reflecting the bands upbringing in South-East London. The record was a bit hit in the UK ska scene and was championed by reggae legend David Rodigan.
Winning the World Reggae Contest earned the band a trip to record their follow up album in Kingston, Jamaica at Harry J Studio's - famous for where Bob Marley & The Wailers recorded the albums Natty Dread, Catch A Fire, Rastaman Vibration & Burnin' - with double Grammy award winning producer Stephen Stewart. On 24th November 2017 the band released the album entitled 'Harry J Business'. The album has a rare feature from well known reggae singer Toots Hibbert of Toots & The Maytals that gained major airplay across BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 6 Music & BBC Radio 1xtra. The album was given a 6 page review in the world's biggest reggae magazine 'Festiville' organised by Reggaeville and got them invited to showcase at SXSW Festival in Texas, USA. Extensive tours of the UK and Europe to promote the album followed, with big promoters in the USA knocking on the door to get the album toured in the States.

"Well they got me going in the studio, I can tell you...I think that is absolutely brilliant" David Rodigan MBE on BBC Radio 2
"Chainska is one of the most impressive and promising upcoming acts in the reggae/ska genre that I have seen or heard in while" The Skatalites.
