Raggy Road

Interlocking to produce musical patterns you can physically feel through a sound system, the drum and bass are core elements of reggae music. As a drum ’n’ bass duo, this synergy greatly influences our creation of similar melodies that you can relate and groove to.

NOTIS, in 2013, started a new phase of their musical journey, expanding their talents to the stage. Their debut performance at Wickie Wackie Live happened in December 2014, following soon after with a performance at Jamaica Reggae Industry Association’s (JARIA) annual “Reggae Wednesdays” in February 2015.

Their current collaboration with Nattali Rize from Australia is a joint EP, due to be released late 2015 subsequent to their North American tour in June.

Since meeting in early 2000 while still attending college, Wayne “Unga Barunga” Thompson and Jason “WelshBass” Welsh have been in-studio producing rhythms that undoubtedly show their versatility in making sweet one-drop and dub-style beats, as well as dancehall rhythms. There was always a desire to do live performances of music they produced, but nothing before its time.

“From then ‘til now, the mission has been to unify people through the synergy of our music – bringing joy and hope,” says Unga. From the studio to the stage, NOTIS captures the sounds of today to create music for the ages.
