To date Jamal Banton aka HardHouse Banton is revered as an iconic producer within the Urban House movement for productions such as 'Reign' , 'Sirens' , 'The Music', the list can go on! These tracks enabled Urban House or UK Funky (the term many use to refer to this genre of house) to become an international movement. HardHouse can also be credited as being the man responsible for (alongside producer DJ Gregory) one of UK Funky's biggest tracks to date 'Migraine Skank'!
HardHouse Banton's eclectic style of music production stems from the mix of Spanish and Jamaican heritage. The passion and fiery temperament of his work being influenced from the Spanish culture, the real 'Hard' style from his Jamaican roots fused with the sounds of UK music make HHB's productions unmistakeable and unforgettable.
With an upcoming release titled 'Put Your Hands Up' with PSG (90's UK Garage MC - legend!), Shizzio and Tiger S from So Solid Crew, 2010 is going to continue to roll on as a roadblock year for Banton. To celebrate his appearance at FABRICLIVE this Friday in room three Banton has put together this extra special mix for the occasion...
