Fuzzy Logic...Roots Fi Dem Youths Reggae Music

Blazing like wildfire hailing out of California’s Central Coast, Derek "Dooby" Wells p.k.a. Fuzzy Logic & the band known as "Roots Fi Dem Youths" captivates all audiences with a unique blend of original yet culturally traditional roots-rock, dub, rock-steady and dancehall reggae music. Considered lyrically to be "the cream of the crop" which as we all know, inevitably rises to the top! Fuzzy Logic uses his gift of lyrics and his amazing voice in a "sing-J" style to expose his audience to the iniquities of mental and spiritual slavery. Exploding with extreme energy on stage and a visual performance to compliment the high voltage music, he offers an ITAL cuisine of conscious creativity and positivity that is simply irresistible and is an eminent reggae favorite. "Rising to the Occasion" with his lyrical persuasion and teaching the works of His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I, Fuzzy Logic's message to every human being is to release your shackles of oppression and feed your mind, body and spirit the ITAL necessities of positivity, happiness and love. In Bob Marley's words, "Wake up and Live!"

Fuzzy Logic is currently finishing the long awaited debut album EP album, "Trod di Road Ahead" which, with the right engineers to mix and master, and the proper radio promotion, has more than sufficient potential to creep up the billboard charts as a distinguished new artist to the music industry, with several high-energy radio singles to catch peoples ears like a wailing siren on a calm quiet night. The EP includes singles such as "The Voice of Jah" which features the legendary Grammy Nominee, Pato Banton and "Morninglight." Morninglight is an energetic dancehall tune about making love last all night till the light of the morning sun starts shinning. And "The Voice of Jah" is exactly what it sounds like! A very catchy dancehall beat that compels you to move your waist and feet, along with a fully traditional Rastafarian Niyabinghi ensemble, a melodic horn section, flutes, a Fender Rhodes piano, and the amazing conscious works of Pato Banton, this song is destined for success! The EP album also includes the tune, "Chasing di Wind," which demands we be dressed to impress the best and stay ready for learning, to keep your lamp of faith steady burning, and "stop chasing the wind." Or the Ganja tune called "Roll Another Spliff for our Friends," written as a "Thank You" to all the friends' help over the years. Even a song which suggests that the answer to life and all your problems or stress is simply to seek out higher grounds of joy and happiness.

Fuzzy Logic has had the honor of sharing the stage with a few legendary artists including Mykal Rose, Junior Reid, Yellowman, The Twinkle Brothers and more.
