The musical focus of Silly Walks covers 40 years of reggae-history from Studio One to the latest dancehall tunes. Always spiced with a dignified selection of other caribbean sounds as soca or reggaeton just as music from urban africa like the Ghanaian
Hiplife or Coupé Decalé from the Ivory coast.

The “Aspire Riddim” climbed up various reggae charts worlwide, had the German reggae charts locked for weeks and was the #1 riddim in Gambia and other parts of West Africa in 2010.
In 2010 Silly Walks has been part of the production team of the latest Gentleman album with the track “Shut Eye Country” feat. Gentleman, Luciano and Jack Radics as well as an official remix of the chart topping single “To The Top” feat. Gentleman and Christopher Martin.
