• Rootikal with Aba Shanti I, Vibronics, Gladdy Wax and Tuff Scout – Friday 8th May

    On Friday the 8th of May Rootikal comes back with a heavy-like-lead line up across two rooms at Corsica Studios, Elephant & Castle.

    Rootikal favourite Aba Shanti I will head up the main room and will joined by Vibronics with Madu Messenger, Real Roots, Stereo Chemist, Donovan Kingjay and Rootikal’s Mr Faso at the healm.

    It’s the first time that Vibronics will play at Rootikal, and for those that dont know, they’ve played all the major venues on the UK dub scene and abroad since they started in 95. They've also chalked up over 40 releases on their Scoops label, and have worked on albums, singles and remixes for a host of other artists inlcuding Universal Egg and Jah Tubbys. We can’t wait.

    The Selector’s Choice room is Rootikal's new alternative to the main room and it has only one music policy – that the selector is free to dig deep and pull the pieces that they really want to drop in the dance, whether it be rocksteady and ska, a Tubbys dub or some tuff dig-roots. The sound for this room will be delivered by a state-of-the-art full-range TPI system, reknowned for its clarity and weight.

    Selector's Choice will host Gladdy Wax, a true veteran of the London reagge scene and a cornerstone at Notting Hill Carnival, Gil Cang of London's standard-setting Tuff Scout label, and Rootikal residents David Hill and Stuart Patterson.

    The dance runs from 10pm-5am.

    We’re back, in true Rootikal style and fashion.
