Ben Webster aka The Ital Duke cut his teeth on the sounds of Reggae with Ska band The Frustrations back in Oxford, where he immersed himself in the heavy sounds of Jamaica’s finest Dub and Reggae producers.

The Duke moved to Sheffield in 2007 and started in radio with the ‘Dub Revolution’ show (SureRadio) which blasted out reggae, dub, ska and conspiracy theories as and when they were needed (frequently).

He then began DJing under the title of ‘The Ital Duke’ around Sheffield and started the ‘Ital Sounds’ show (, this time as himself – Ben Webster – in 2008, which serves up a hearty portion of Reggae, Dub and Ska with extra Dubstep, Hip-Hop, Soul and anything else Ital every Thursday evening.

Groovement hooked up with the Duke when he was spinning at one of the Colonel’s legendary gigs in Sheffield, saw the fire in his eyes and got him on here! Enjoy…
