Med Dred has always been into music, addicted from the young age of 7, a good 20+ years ago! He is one of those artists, who are passionate with their music. Studied in the United Kingdom City & Guilds (Sound Engineer), the Cypriot artist then went off to further his studies with a Bachelor’s Degree in Texas and a Master’s Degree in the UK at the Trinity Southern University. He has been refining his sound ever since.
“Reggae has always been my passion as I was brought up in Brixton and went school there so my musical influence has always been a heavy bass line on a reggae riddim. Some of my mentors are: The Scientist, King Tubby, Black Uhuru, Mad Professor, Sly & Robbie, Bob Marley, Eek a Mouse, Gregory Isaacs … and too many more Kings, not enough room here to mention! Jah Guide, Protect & Bless all.” – M.D.
Having lots of collaborations (Aza Lineage, Dub Caravan, Ted Sirota, Shaky Norman, Hermit Dubz, Dub Creator, Skunga Kong, Madi Simmons … just to name a few) and many releases (digital & vinyl) on different labels. (Dubophonic Records, Emana Sound, Mango, Dread Camel Records, Skunga Records, Big Dabass Recordings).
His new tune New School Roots Melodica Dub is released on his own label Med Dred Productions and it is pure niceness!!
