★★★ 7th June - Rootikal with Channel One and Mark Iration ★★★
Admission on the door is £7 before 10.00pm, £9 thereafter. Limited advance tickets are HERE
On the 7th June Rootikal plays host to selectors from two of the UK's top sound systems for what is certain to be a deep and heavy night.
Anyone who's been to Notting Hill Carnival or University of Dub will be familiar with the righteous sounds played by Channel One's Mikey Dread and the unique spiritual message from DJ Ras Kayleb, which is a major draw. It's always a pleasure to welcome them at Rootikal, and we look forward to hearing their selection once more.
Joining regulars Channel One will be Mark Iration and Danman, from Iration Steppas, making their Rootiklal debut. Based in Leeds, Iration are veterans who have played at dub clubs and festivals all over the world and have built a deservedly strong following. A frequent feature in the line up at University of Dub, Subdub and Love Dub, Mark will be dropping more of a roots-focused selection at Rootilkal.
And as if that wasn't enough, Errol Bellot will be performing a live PA of some new tunes and some classics. The Rootikal crew have been working closely with Errol on an album on mostly unreleased gems recorded from 1983-85, and 'Youthman' will be released on Bristol's Reggae Archive Records in July.
The Rootikal crew of David Hill, Stuart Patterson and Mr Faso will be joined by guest selector Dubplate Pearl, and we'll also have Oxman toasting on the mic.
With such a heavy line-up, it's bound to be a capacity turnout, so if you don't want to be stuck outside queuing, then we'd recommend arrival well before midnight.
The session starts at 9.00pm and runs until 3.30am
