Ruff Cutt

    Founded by Carlton 'Bubblers' Ogilvie, Kenton 'Fish' Brown and Tony 'Crucial' Phillips, The Undivided Roots was a superb outfit capable of reproducing authentic reggae equal to Jamaican musicians.

    Their work soon came to the attention of CSA Records who released their first single, True Love.

    In 1986, Undivided Roots had a UK Top 40 hit with Party Night, however, after the departure of their lead singer, Don Campbell, Undivided Roots metamorphosis into the Ruff Cutt Band.

Ruff Cutt began to concentrate on backing touring artists and this gave them more exposure and also enabled them to build relationships with these artists which led to collaborations.

UK promoters didn't want the additional cost of bringing Jamaican backing bands over, so they used the most authentic-sounding reggae outfits available and Ruff Cutt was the best Europe had to offer.

Over the years the Ruff Cutt Band has been one of the leading reggae establishments in the UK.

Renowned for their impeccable quality production of sound and artistry with riddims, the label has seen the brand rise to prominence all over the world.

They have released many singles and albums with some of the biggest names in the industry including Beres Hammond, Mykal Rose, Jack Radics, Glen Washington, Freddie McGregor and Gregory Isaacs to name a few.

Ruff Cutt continue to be on forefront of reggae production and the live concert scene and are constantly working with the young DJs and singers in their community.
