• This Saturday – Rootikal birthday dance with Al Campbell, Channel One, Ed West and Unit 137 Sound System

    On Saturday the 6th of December we celebrate our sixth birthday and we come with an all killer, no filler, Rootikal line up.

    Firstly, we have the return of the great Al Campbell, his first Rootikal PA show in well over three years. Anyone with even a passing interest in reggae will know the work of Al Campbell, a singer and producer of deepest roots, most soulful lovers and the toughest dancehall. His musical career started in the 60s at Studio One and he’s still cutting great sides today. We can’t wait to hear him in session again.

    The mighty Channel One will also be in the house and Mikey and Ras Kayleb will be able to deliver with weight as we’ll have the Unit 137 sound system powering the dance. It’s always a joy to have Channel One selecting at Rootikal.

    From the Unit 137 crew we have Ed West, fine selector, producer and drummer in The Drop, and most recent signing to the Tru Thoughts label via their new Sharp And Ready sound system music A&R. Ed is joined by RTKal on the mic, and there is also DJ set from Unit 137 head honcho, Hylu.

    The Rootikal crew of David Hill, Stuart Patterson, Mr Faso will also be running tunes, with UK Principal joining them on the mic, and in room 2 we have Real Roots and Stereochemist.

    The evening will begin on POW's new covered and heated winter terrace, and Rootikal will be the first Saturday night event to use this new space.
