Formed in 2011 The Downsetters are one of the country's leading Ska & Reggae bands.
Hailing from Ipswich,UK, they play a mixture of original Cosmic Ska & Luna Reggae, as well as Classic Ska & Reggae , 2-Tone and blistering renditions of Punk classics plus a few surprise’s too.
Their infectious sound has been labelled InterSkalactic and is proving popular not only with the UK crowds but fans in the States and Europe. 2011 saw the release of their debut E.P 'The Interskalactic House Sessions'.
Then followed by the summer scorcher vinyl single 'Skanga In You Djanga!' which generated a lot of interest in the Ska scene nationally and internationally. As well as playing SKABOUR 2012 Fest and many other festivals they have supported many Ska and Reggae legends. In the summer of 2012 they headlined the UK'S largest free music festival as part of the IP-ART festival in Ipswich and have stacked up some good reviews across the globe as well as being featured on many radio stations.
In between a busy gigging schedule the band have managed to record their debut album ' We Are Now Leaving The Future' which was released on 21-12-2012 . They are currently gigging nationwide and are recording their follow up album ‘Welcome To The Twilight Zone’ due for release in early 2014.
