This is a British urban reggae band with sweet vocals and good modern roots feeling. it is worth a closer look and listening and bring back some good sound from end of 70s and 80s both roots and ragga with 2000 settings. Big up RasItes!
“Raised in East and North London, the members of RasItes grew up to the sounds of JA greats. They began thier own musical journey at Rastafari gatherings, where as small youths they would play Conga drums and chant amongst the elders, all the while absorbing knowledge of their spiritual and ancestral heritage before forming the RasItes in 1996 the original line up remains as tightly knited as ever”.

|Urban Regeneration (Jet Star, 2001)Perhaps the most exciting debut of 2001, Urban Regeneration is a throwback to good ol’ fashioned roots reggae, with soothing harmonies, live instruments, and positive, righteous messages. Imagine the shock, then, to find out that this quartet is not only British, but they’re also teenagers! (Well, technically one is 20 years old.) With confidence, wisdom, and musical proficiency beyond their years, these prodigies have managed to put out a remarkably well-rounded package, produced by London’s hot Cave Team.|
