Disciples is Russ D. producer, musician, engineer on the uk reggae and dub scene since 1986. Originally Disciples were brothers Russ and Lol who produced music for legendary uk sound system man Jah Shaka, it was Shaka who gave us our name, we recorded 4 albums for Shaka from 1987 - 1991.
Russ later formed his own labels Boom Shacka Lacka and Backyard Movements, the former for uk dub styles, the latter for roots vocal styles. In 1991 they built our own sound system which they ran for 5 years before packing away the boxes for good. Russ brother Lol pulled out of the music biz and Russ himself continued to forward his studio and productions as well as continued djing around the world with long time friend and micman Jonah Dan.
