1-STOP-EXPERIENCE is INTELLIGENT-SKA creating topical concepts using SKA & REGGAE as a backdrop to express each perception.  This site is dedicated to new ska mixed with old ska, dub reggae, deep dub reggae, latin, pop, jazz and blues. 

1-STOP-EXPERIENCE was originally created by Jennie Matthias, Paget King and Skip McDonald and features writers, musicians, programmers, artists, film makers, photographers, producers and of course the people who are inspired by our music and are offering their friendship; if you are reading this, then that's you and may we say that it is an honour to have you involved.

1-STOP-EXPERIENCE released their debut album in October 2011 and are currently working on their second album.
