NUCLEUS ROOTS featuring SIMON DAN (Manchester/U.K.)

Nucleus Roots was established in 1995 by P Lush, one the founder members of Manchester’s popular punky reggae band Community Charge which was hailed at the time as one of the hottest underground acts on the UK circuit.
Nucleus Roots originally performed as a 10 piece band until a chance gig alongside Iration Steppas influenced a change in the line up and dynamics of the group. Due to the lack of available stage space for a 10 piece band, Nucleus Roots realised they could perform as a much smaller outfit and decided to go out as a live studio act. Dub Dadda, a long time friend and MC from Community Charge days, was recruited for his dub mixing abilities. With P Tech’s hypnotic keyboard and synth hooks, P Lush’s heavyweight bass line and Dub Dadda’s live mix, an unbeatable creative partnership was formed that would quickly propel the Nucleus Roots sound through the ranks of the UK Roots and Dub scene.
In 2000 Nucleus Roots released their highly acclaimed debut album Nucleus Roots (aka The Brown Album) which led them to secure a good distribution deal in France. The opportunity to tour extensively across the European continent gave the band wide exposure and an invitation to play their first live show at Glastonbury soon followed. They were voted best up and coming band in 2000 and were regular features for the next five years, culminating in a electrifying performance on the famed Jazz Stage.
London based Sound System Aba Shanti was instrumental in furthering Nucleus Roots’ notoriety within the sound system culture by being the first major sound to play a Nucleus Roots track at a dance – Don Hartley’s Deep Roots. Interest in Nucleus Roots’ music grew rapidly from then on, with more and more sound systems requesting dub plates and specials, notably the legendary Iration Steppas who brought to the fore tracks like Jah Rule and My King.
Nucleus Roots have collaborated with renowned reggae artists such as Mykal Rose (Black Uhuru), Half Pint, Mark YT, Stikki Tantafari, Zion Train and Ossie Gad.
Over a decade later Nucleus Roots are still held with the highest respect within the Reggae and Dub fraternity and continue to tour and excite audiences young and old at home and abroad. With the resurgence of their record label and actively releasing vinyl again, Nucleus Roots look set to continue championing their unique sound that so many fans love and which is so intrinsically part of Manchester’s reggae scene.

LO PEAKS bio:
I suoi gusti musicali hanno cominciato a formarsi con la techno della fine degli anni 90 per poi arrendersi completamente al dub reggae: nel 2005 fonda Jahstice Sound, e un paio d’anni più tardi con Robi e Vrx lancia Digitron Soundsystem, primo vero sound croato e ormai ampiamente noto nella scena dub/reggae. Nel 2007 ha partecipato anche alla fondazione della band Bamwise, tutt’ora attivissima.
Dopo aver lasciato Digitron Sound, nel 2010 entra nel progetto Ital Jam, un gruppo di musicisti che ha inizialmente organizzato jam sessions per poi tramutarsi in una vera e propria riddim band che ha accompagnato vari artisti reggae internazionali dal vivo. Parallelamente comincia a costruirsi uno stile più personale cimentandosi nei nuovi ritmi dubstep e come dj/produttore è uno dei fondatori del Dubstep Night Club all’Attack di Zagabria,una serie di eventi basati sul suono dubstep più duro ed oscuro. Negli ultimi tempi, a causa della crescente domanda di dubplates freschi e dello sviluppo della scena croata, le sue produzioni e i dj set si basano su sonorità “strictly dubwise”.stilnew

Kuku2.0 Discoteque
via Brancolo 1 Staranzano

WARRIOR CHARGE SOUNDSYSTEM
Warrior Charge è un soundsystem udinese nato nel 2006 da precedenti progetti musicali, pioniere della cultura dei soundsystem in Friuli, diffonde il battito della dub music e il suo messaggio ribelle attraverso un potente impianto autocostruito e in questi 9 anni di attività ha organizzato innumerevoli free parties, festivals e sessions e condiviso serate con sound e gruppi da tutta Europa, ed è stato ospite di alcune delle più importanti rassegne dub italiane ed europee, oltre che resident sound delle serate “Dub Arena”, che organizza dal 2011.
dal 2009 poi, diffonde roots reggae e dub music anche attraverso il programma settimanale Stil Salvadi, in onda su Radio Onde Furlane…
The only good system is a soundsystem!

SHIMANA SOUNDSYSTEM è stato fondato nel 2013 da un gruppo di 4 giovani musicisti. Con un po’ di tempo e collaborazioni, la famiglia Shimana si è allargata, e, ispirata dai messaggi della musica e dalla sua forza mistica, ha creato un luogo di ritrovo per coloro che amano le good vibez e lo stare assieme.
Il progetto Shimana è nato come un Roots Reggae & Dub Soundsystem, ma si è presto evoluto in un punto di incontro fra diverse culture musicali, chiave del nostro messaggio e della nostra avventura. Shimana Sound System è oggi un motore musicale “multietnico” e raggiunge la Drum n’ Bass, la Jungle e la Psy – Trance.
