GuilFest 2011 - Lineup

The Roots Brothers

Four years ago two DJ’s exposure to the modern UK reggae soundsystem scene as a result of their involvement in the management of the Channel One Sound System combined with their love of roots reggae inspired them to start playing as the Roots Brothers. The Roots Brothers have taken their particular brand of lively jump up roots reggae to venues such as The Star (Mullet Over), Vibe Bar, One Love Festival, Cargo and East Village in London with regular guest spots at the monthly reggae event Rootikal and a monthly residency in the Boiler Rooms in Guildford showcasing roots reggae DJ’s and live acts. May 2010 saw the Trojan Soundsystem headlining a bank holiday roots reggae showcase hosted by the Roots Brothers in Guildford.

The collectives DJ backgrounds of jungle, acid techno, hip-hop and breaks are evident in their selections which keep the reggae theme central to the sets but ensure the crowd keeps jumping. The Roots Brothers bring upfront and classic roots selections.
