AAA Badboy

Struggle & Sunshine (Reggae Revolution Pt. II)

Although known for playing many different types of music, Reggae has always been at the very heart of what Kaptin Barrett aka AAA Badboy (the latest alias of many) is about. Ever since his early days on East and West London housing estates such as Kingsmead and White City, he’s been a fan of Roots Reggae and has been playing out his selection of 7”s at clubs and festivals for nearly 2 decades. As Head Of Music for Boomtown Fair festival in the UK, he is responsible for programming the epic Lion’s Den stage, a life size temple of reggae with waterfalls, flames and some of the biggest reggae acts in the world.

This year there’s a strong focus on Reggae Revival artists across the festival such as Protoje, Raging Fyah, Jah9, Jesse Royal and Iba Mahr and his latest mix follows along the same lines, pushing a sound that is possibly more relevant now than it has ever been.

Irie Magazine invites you to check out AAA Badboy’s Mixcloud page and discover his latest reggae mix, ‘Struggle & Sunshine (Reggae Revolution Pt. II)’, featuring an A-list of reggae artists appearing at this year’s (and previous years) Boomtown Fair.

About Boomtown

Now approaching it’s 9th ‘Chapter’, Boomtown has grown into a 60,000 capacity pop up city, which is part theater, inviting you to be a character in it’s interactive storyline, and part music festival with 27 main stages and over 100 smaller street venues playing everything from Reggae and Jungle to Jazz and Gypsy Music, with Ska, Punk, Drum N Bass, Ragga Tek, French Tek, Psy-trance, House, Techno, Folk, Electro Swing and many other styles represented. It’s really something that has to be seen to be believed.
