The roots reggae quintet stand shoulder to shoulder with the likes of Luciano and Jah Cure in the running for the ‘Best Reggae Album’ category 2015, for their standout LP ‘Strictly Roots’.
The album, which features artists including platinum-selling dancehall phenomenon Shaggy (a previous winner of the award), Jamaican sensation Chronixx and previous Grammy nominee SOJA, received coverage on The Guardian playlist and saw Outpost secure premieres on Complex and Clash. It also garnered support from the likes of Q Magazine, Don Letts on BBC 6Music and plays across Capital Xtra, as well as support from BBC Radio 1Xtra DJs David Rodigan, Seani B, Trevor Nelson and MistaJam.
