Count Skylarkin
3rd November 2018

From compiling TDK D90s in the early 90s to touring with The Wailers, remixing for Trojan Records and performing in front of thousands at festivals all around the world, Count Skylarkin has been making people dance for the past 20 years – specialising in new and vintage reggae, rocksteady, Jamaican ska, hot swing, jump blues, dancehall, hip hop and jungle vinyl, turntablism, pork-pie hats, dapper suits and guaranteed good times.

Over the years The Count has shared stages, decks and rum with such musical luminaries as The Wailers (2009/10/13 UK Tour DJ), The Specials, Toots & The Maytals, Chronixx, Protoje, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, The Skatalites, Prince Buster, Alton Ellis, Max Romeo, Susan Cadogan, Mad Professor, David Rodigan, Don Letts, Jerry Dammers, Trojan Soundsystem, Benga, Coki, Norman Jay, TEED, Benny Page, Ashley Beedle, DJ Yoda, Alex Paterson (The Orb), Massive Attack’s Daddy G and Horace Andy. In 2015 the Count was invited to appear on David Rodigan’s BBC Radio 2 show, where he shared tunes and tales from two decades in music.
