Genre: Contemporary Roots Reggae
Location: Barcelona (Spain)
Influences: The band started playing covers of Jacob Miller, Dennis Brown, Delroy Wilson, Pat Kelly, Jimmy Cliff, Cornell Campbell... all of them from the rockers days (here comes the name of the band) but nowadays we're playing modern Reggae or new Roots.

In 2007, eleven musicians from different reggae bands, decided to join forces to give birth to Universal Rockers; a project that has continued to grow from strength to strength.
In 2009, they released their first Ep 'Clear&Low'.
After four years of touring the spanish peninsula, the Barcelonian reggae band, Universal Rockers are proud to present their first full-length to the international audience: 'Heavyweight Sound'.
The group offers ten soulful songs, composed by lead vocalist Uri Green, which are messages of freedom, a celebration of life, and songs flung up to the sky, representing a cry of hope; hope so needed in these days and times.
On stage the band delivers a charismatic and energetic performance, captivating the audience. Their songs are original and true to the genre. Universal Rockers have played in some of the major Spanish reggae festivals, including: Sunsplash, Rototom Festival. Also they have shared the stage with international heavyweights such as Linval Thompson, Chantelle Hernández and Ghettoman.
'HEAVYWEIGHT SOUND' has been recorded and mixed by Xavi Lizarraga (a.k.a. Dread Liz) at Rica Onda Studios, Barcelona and mastered by Ibon Larruzea at Euridia, Bilbao.
