Freedom Soundsystem deliver another crucial selection of fresh new releases, old roots classics, and exclusive dubplate specials.
Roots Renegade showcase their heavyweight dub plates, explosive productions exclusive to the Roots Renegade label and rare tunes from deep in their bottomless crates:
Roots Renegade was founded way back in 2007 in Norwich, a smaller city known for its massive reggae scene. Specialising in roots reggae music from 70s to the present day and growing as quickly as the crew’s heavyweight selection; their soundsystem and following are fast becoming one of the biggest around. And since 2007, Roots Renegade’s reach has stretched far beyond Norwich, running dances across the UK alongside David Rodigan, Mungo’s Hi-Fi, Iration Steppas and lots more.
Not content with only playing some of the heaviest Roots tunes to be found, Roots Renegade have turned their production and networking skills to producing and (sometimes) releasing their own style – some of the toughest soundsystem music around. The Roots Renegade record label has been running since 2015 and has releases working with Cornell Campbell, Earl 16, Skari, Robert Lee, Queen Omega, Blackout JA, Topcat, MC Spyda, Omar Perry and King Kong. Check out some of their releases here: https://rootsrenegade.bandcamp.com https://www.facebook.com/Roots.R.Records/
Roots renegade also have forthcoming releases featuring Dennis Brown, Sugar Minott, Noel Ellis, Horace Andy, Singer Tempa and Icho Candy all coming on vinyl soon. And lots more to follow.
In true Sound System style, Roots Renegade also hold back a closely guarded cache of heavyweight exclusive recordings – too special to release.
Expect dubplates galore when Roots Renegade are in town! And don’t miss it!
