Dedication, inspiration and collaboration are the terms that best describe The 4’20’ Sound. The ‘outernational’ collective consists of core members from Israel and France plus a team of enthusiasts who base themselves in Byron Bay, Australia through a mutual love for the area. Through all the challenges of migration policies they have left their mark on Australia and the global Reggae scene by developing one of the biggest sound system movements in the Southern hemisphere.
The artists that perform with The 4’20’ Sound would commonly collaborate on music productions whilst in town; recording and then releasing the music onto the global market. 4’20’ Sound’s musical output has received worldwide support by DJs and radio, especially since their productions featured on Mungos HiFi’s renowned Scotch Bonnet Recordings via Parly B’s Lyric Spree LP. Heavyweight, genre-spanning party anthems are the name of their game and on their own independent label have released four singles; Deadly Hunta & Gappy Ranks – Banton Bandits Riddim, Jinx In Dub – Trust Dem, SK Simeon – Ten Outta Ten and Parly B – It Saucy which was played by Sir David Rodigan on BBC1Xtra in the UK.
The 4’20’ Sound’s live show has been developed and refined over the years into what is a
multi-cultural team performance uniting three continents; Oren Selecta of Israel is DJ then we have Katia Demeester from Australia and SK Simeon from Uganda who are both on vocals This is a wonderful thing to see all three on stage performing together at each 4’20’ session.
