They played their first gig in February 2002, and have been playing live on a regular basis since then. Meanwhile Junkyard Productions have been perfecting their style and songwriting in the studio. The main influence is ol’skool Jamaican dub as well as the modern dub sound from Berlin. In October 2004 the track ”Sister Let Him Go” was recorded for the Radio Recordings II compilation album, and in February 2005 they played at the Radio Recordings II release party live on Danish national radio.
“Sister Let Him Go” was released in October 2005 on Murena Records as a 12”. The track had massive airplay on DR P3 (Danish national radio) and on French Radio Nova, and has already been licensed for four compilations including Radio Nova’s “Novatunes”.
