About UWE BANTON:
Uwe Banton can look back on many years of experience within the Reggae Music fraternity. Being infected with the “Reggae virus“ in the early 1980's by artists like Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Jacob Miller, Burning Spear, etc, he made his first trip to Jamaica in 1981. Back in Germany he started DJing on Riddims back in 1984 during the legendary era of King Jammy's Riddims like Sleng Teng and others. In the early 90's he joined his first band as it became clear that he would find his genre within musical realms of Roots Music. He later joined the Band “MOVEMENTS“ which consisted of members from Jamaica, Africa and Germany, and for over 10 years stood as a guarantor of authentic Roots Reggae and played on all major Reggae festivals in Germany and neighbouring countries.

In January 2010 Heike relocated back to Kingston, Jamaica to be once again in the center of the reggae world and the music industry of Jamaica. She continues to work with various artistes as a publicist arranging international media features, press releases, air play and video play working with thousands of local and international journalists, djs and media houses and herself being featured regularly on TV, the newspapers, websites, magazines and music videos promoting axe-s media as a brand.
In February 2010 all axe-s started to also run on RTC 107 fm, the Turks & Caicos version of the radio show, hosted by Heike.
Keeping busy as an industry insider, journalist, radio personality, tv host Heike plans all axe-s tv to be launched in 2010 as well as some other ideas in the pipeline to be brought to life. Heike is definitely always on the go promoting dancehall and reggae to the world.
