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 25 years – specialising in new and vintage reggae, rocksteady, Jamaican ska, hot swing, jump blues, dancehall, hip hop and jungle vinyl and guaranteed good times.

As co-founder of The Disco Shed he has made headlining appearances at Bestival, Latitude, Leeds, Reading and The Big Chill. Over the years The Count has also rocked The Secret Garden Party, Outlook Festival (Croatia), Common People, Standon Calling, Notting Hill Carnival and countless others. An authority on reggae music particularly, he has written for several music publications, including Knowledge and NME.

These days probably busier than he’s ever been, when he’s not racking up motorway and air miles gigging across Britain and the world, Count Skylarkin is the creator and curator of the critically-acclaimed Big Ten Inch and Skylarkin' Soundsystem clubnights in London and Oxford.
