21st Century Dry & Heavy Livetronica DubCore


Since September of 2010 these crucial 4 points of the illest of light have touched down on Earth and emerged onto the scene as RootsCollider; the definitive 21st Century "Dry & Heavy Livetronica DubCore" act that continues to push the sonic envelope toward enlightenment.

The future fab four is dedicated to bringing the listener only the freshest cuts of live original punishing Drum & Bass, crushing Dubstep, destructive Electro-Rock, and fresh Future-Funk, with the rude-boy elements of the most crucial Dub Reggae.

The act's sole purpose is to collide these roots genres into a single unstoppable aesthetic force, and they are known as one of the last definitive almost completely analogue defenses against the digital 21st Century.
