With roots in Israel and the Netherlands, and raised on the sun-kissed coast of Southern California, Gidon is a fast emerging talent on the international reggae circuit.
GIDON’s high-vibe music reflects the diverse, cross-cultural influences that defined his early years, creating a sunny, groove-filled sound that is almost impossible not to move to.
'Rise' is his first EP on Slipway Records, four original songs plus three Slipway dub versions.
Just a few days after its release RISE caught the attention of David 'Ram Jam' Rodigan who played Golden Chain on his BBC Radio 1XTRA program, Dennis Bovell who played Walk Inside Dub on his Dub On Air program on Soho Radio, and oversea of Chuck Foster who played Rise on his Reggae Central (KPFK Radio) program.

Alex 'Dimples' Hinds was the founder and bandleader of the Jamaican band 'The Marvels', which enjoyed considerable success with hits such as 'Rocksteady' and 'Heaven Must Have Sent You' that reached number one record in Canada and Brazil.
Their style was pure reggae but with a Doo-Wop sensibility in the harmonies and the backing vocals. Dimples continued to lead the band on international tours through the years, and their most recent incarnation of the band performed to great acclaim at the Skamouth festival in 2017.
On his first single under Slipway Records 'One of a Kind', Dimples is backed by 'The HeadMasters'.
Unfortunately this was Dimples' last recording as he sadly passed away in March 2018.
In addition to his singing career Dimples was a much-loved ska and reggae DJ known as the 'King Spinner', and his show on London's Radio RJR 98.3 FM, which had faithful fans all around the world, is greatly missed.
