Rebel Control evolved from the reggae jams hosted by Andy Baron and Richie Concrete in a disused shop in West London back in 2008 / 2009. These sessions attracted an amazing crew of Uk based reggae musicians including drummer Richie Stevens (Horace Andy/ Dennis Bovell ), percussionist Jeff Scantlebury (Eddy Grant / LKJ ) and trombonist Winston Rollins (Aswad/Jamiroquai ) spawning the album “Jammin At Rebel H.Q.” mixed by Mike Pelanconi best known as his alter ego Prince Fatty and for his production work with The Skints, Hollie Cook etc etc

They also began carving out a reputation as a serious live act playing some of the biggest and best UK festivals from Boomtown to Bestival, performing in Italy. Poland and Montenegro as well as supporting and touring with a myriad of acts including reggae heavyweights Luciano, Mad Professor, Easy All Stars and also performing regularly for causes close to their hearts such as Black History Month and Love Music Hate Racism

The most recent single We Nah Got No Money (But We Got Love) was first aired by David Rodigan on BBC Radio 1Xtra and was played byToddla T on BBC Radio 1 as well as receiving amazing support from BBC Introducing. local and international radio and the online reggae community worldwide.
