The name ‘Splashdown Muzik House’ started in Ensom City, Spanishtown, Jamaica after a meeting between founder member – Redman 4K – and Skully from the famous Roots Radics band. After returning to the UK in 1991 the sound was started by Redman 4K, Selecta Ruffy, Rubba Ranx & the 49(ers) Crew – in the historic city of Bath, Somerset, UK. .
The sound’s first residency was at the Bath West Indian Activity Centre (BWISAC) and it has played continuously since 1991. Memorable nights include a dance with Linton Kwesi Johnson at Semies Night Club in Bath in the 1990’s – and also a dance with the Natural Mystic band – where they played with the legendary 1950s sound from London – Duke Vin.
Dubplate specials have been cut by the sound since 1991 – and Splashdown Muzik House has clashed with various sounds from London, Bristol, Coventry, Southampton, Gloucester etc
Splashdown Muzik House’s motto is that they don’t follow the dubplates that other sounds cut – they have their own style and fashion.
