Saxon Studio started playing out as a party set, back in 1976, playing at local parties, weddings and small functions in the community of Lewisham, South East London.

Throughout the years to follow, Saxon became known as the Number One U.K Sound System, who were in a class of their own with their Dub plates, MC’s and DJ’s.

In 1982, Saxon showcased a dance called “DJ Jamboree”. This was the catalyst for elevating Saxon’s popularity. From then on, people from all over the globe would come to future Saxon dances. Due to the popularity of their formidable DJ/MC talent, Saxon were awarded their own record label by Greensleeve Records in 1984. The rest is history... as their DJs (e.g.) Daddy Colonel, Daddy Sandy, Daddy Rusty and more famously Tippa Irie, and Smiley Culture all having chart topping success.

In 1985, Saxon became the first U.K Sound to do a full tour of the U.S.A. This gained Saxon worldwide recognition. Since then, Saxon have toured countries such as Germany, Bermuda, Sweden, Zimbabwe, Jamaica, Israel and Holland, to name but a few where they have a great following.

In 1992, Saxon retained their title as U.K’s Number One Reggae Sound by winning a Sound Cup Clash against ‘Luv Injection, ‘V-Rocket’ and ‘Stereo Phonic. The following year in Milton Keynes, UK they won the title 'Number One Sound System in the World' at the 1993 World Cup Clash, against popular international sound systems like ‘King Addis', ‘Bodyguard' and ‘Kebra Negus’).

Today, Saxon Soundsystem has reached the pinnacle of their trade. Experts and proffesionaly fluid in entertaining any crowd and command a full following wherever they go. Saxon are still touring the globe and have been the first choice Sound System for many performing artistes, when doing live stage performances.
