CounterAction, Not A Blind Reaction

CounterAction is a UK roots reggae/dub label.

It has come to be as a natural response to the pressures, the highs and lows of living in Babylon (in both the mental and the physical sense).

It aims to provide a vehicle for positive, educational, spiritual creative musical expression contributed by singers and players principally from Leicester and the UK (but not only), particularly taking notice of artists that perhaps have not had enough or as much exposure as deserved.

A true counterAction.

For any interest,or for bookings etc please feel free to contact us directly.

In Leicester we are responsible for UNITED NATIONS OF DUB, a UK Dub ‘n’ Roots radio show and an occasional clubnight.

Give thanx for the local support and guidance.
