Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad’s sixth studio album MAKE IT BETTER was released September 16, 2016 on Rootfire Cooperative. It debuted at #1 on the Billboard Reggae Chart.

Formed in 2001 in Rochester, New York, GPGDS first received praise for their live show, which combined world beats and reggae rhythms within jamband aesthetics. In recent years the band’s studio recordings, which showcase their songwriting and musicianship across all genres of roots music, have further cemented their legend as master innovators and artists. “There is a lot of intention in this release. We had a purpose to prove to ourselves recording this album [MAKE IT BETTER]. We wanted to know that we could put our heads down and do good work fast. It was a great release artistically. It uniquely sounds the most progressive of anything we have ever done while also sounding the most like our first album.” -James Searl, Bassist/Vocalist
Na'an Stop
Na'an Stop
Na'an Stop is a lifestyle. It's a commitment to living life 100%. This means acting on your own terms, in your own way and taking whatever you're doing to the next level. This mindset has always lived within the members of Na'an Stop. A love for reggae brought the band together at the University of Colorado, Boulder in 2011, but their diverse influences and personalities are what drive the unique sound that is Na'an Stop. The reggae/rock foundation paves the way for the band's dub, ska and hip hop influences that are expressed through harmonious brass pieces, heavy drum beats and fluid guitar play. Their high energy live performances and heavy touring have helped them become one of the fastest rising success stories in the Colorado music scene. Their first studio album, "From the Deep," reached #2 on the iTunes Reggae Charts and #5 on the Billboard Reggae Album Charts and has proven the group is ready to make a name for themselves in the national reggae scene. As the group continues to expand their regional and national presence it's clear that Na'an Stop is on the rise and, true to their name, not slowing down.
