Don Letts

World renowned DJ and Grammy award winning film director, the man who introduced Bon Marley to the punk movement will be at St James this August. Don days as a DJ started accidentally when he was asked to play at The Roxy Club (the UK’s first live punk rock venue) back in 1977. He was the original Clash DJ for many of their live gigs up and down the country. Entering the eighties Don deserted the decks to pursue his film career. From that time till this he’s continued to DJ nationally and internationally with a set that’s very much in the spirit of his days at The Roxy – we’re talking the history and legacy of Jamaican music – with an emphasis on moving the crowd. Along with clubs set Don has performed at Glastonbury – Bestival – Lovebox – The Big Chill – Stussy 25th Anniversary – Adidas – Doctor Martins – Latitude – The Rough Trade 25th Anniversary – Lee Perry’s Meltdown – Rizzla – One Love Fest – Island Records 50th Anniversary – Massive Attack’s Meltdown – Vintage At Goodwood – Womad and Festival No.6 to name a few. Don also has his ‘Culture Clash’ Radio show on BBC 6 Music of which he says: “Culture Clash Radio allows me to broaden peoples perceptions of what I’m about. I’m not reggae Don or punky Don – the worlds a big place full of beautiful sounds and I like to embrace it all.”
