Né en 2011, ROOTS RAID est le projet créé par Natty, bassiste du groupe Ondubground (ODG).

Laboratoire des envies musicales de Natty, Roots Raid est influencé par le Rub A Dub style à la Channel 1, mais aussi par les sonorités modernes de la nouvelle scène européenne du dub music..
Il développe ses productions originales, axées sur une basse-batterie puissante et groovy, asservies d’effets psychédéliques vintages.
Sur scène, Natty mixe live & direct les multi-pistes de ses morceaux sur console analogique et effets hardware.

Après un 1er album « From The Top » sorti sur Odgprod.com en 2014 et plusieurs maxis vinyles sortis sur son label « Berry’s Records » (avec Shanti D, Danman, Peter Youthman, Ramon Judah), Roots Raid collabore en 2017 avec d’autres labels tels que « Skank Lab records » (Lille) en compagnie de Vibronics/Parvez et « Lion’s Den records » (Berlin) feat. Afrikan Simba..
Un 2ème album est en préparation, accompagné au micro des très prometteurs Cookah & Likkle Ferguson. (sortie prévue début 2020).

A l’instar des grands duos de chanteurs des années 80 en Jamaïque (Little John/Billy Boyo ; Michigan/Smiley), Cookah & Likkle Ferguson pratiquent le Rub a Dub avec complicité, ils affichent des lyrics enjoués et dynamiques alternant singer et deejay style..
Après 10 années d’amitié et de collaborations, ils élaborent aujourd’hui leur premier album produit par Roots Raid, qui naviguera entre roots/ rubadub / digital / uk steppa / hiphop & bassmusic..

Il progetto Roots Raid nasce ne 2011 a Bourges, Francia. E ‘stato creato da due amici storici : NATTY (bassista dei ONDUBGROUND) e BONGO BEN (ROD ANTON E LIGERIANS), ispirato da una passione comune: la amore per la Dub music.

I due amici hanno una forte mentalità del «do it yourself» quando lavorano nel proprio studio analogico, registrando realmente la maggior parte degli strumenti e utilizzando tecniche di missaggio oldschool. Influenzati dal sound della nuova scena europea e dal «rub a dub style», movimento musicale che ha rivoluzionato il reggae, nei primi anni ’80 nel mitico studio giamaicano Channel One.

ROOTS RAID offre la sua visione personale della musica dal gusto roots e dub, concentrata su basso e batteria potente e minimale, accompagnati da effetti vintage e psichedelici. Una vibes unica, senza tempo e da ballare..
