Hailing from Kingston, Jamaica, reggae veteran Horace 'Sleepy' Andy has been producing nothing but the finest music in the industry for over thirty years, earning him legendary status both in Jamaican music and reggae worldwide. His highly distinctive, unique voice was unleashed in 1970 with his first release 'Oh Lord, Why Lord'. He went on to release a plethora of classic tracks throughout the '70s and '80s, including 'Money, Money', 'Skylarking' and 'Natty Dread A Weh She Want' to name a few. Collaborating with Bristol trip-hop stars Massive Attack in the '90s gained him recognition and respect outside the reggae scene.

A much loved talent with an astonishing voice and unnerving ability to pen a pop smash, McLean launched himself into the high end of the British charts with a string of top ten hits the early 90s. Born in 1972, Bitty’s earliest memories were punctuated with the music he would hear courtesy of his father’s sound system, where he started by singing over Jamaican Dub and Instrumental riddims. In 1992, McLean had not only co-produced and engineered but played and sang on UB40?s hugely successful album ‘Promises And Lies’ which sold in excess of 8 million copies. Bitty’s own material notched up 3 top ten singles in 1994. The subsequent years saw Bitty accrue a fearsome catalogue of top 30 singles, as well as playing UK arena tours with UB40, Wet Wet Wet and Simply Red.
