The Roots Corner (Brussels)
The Roots Corner is a collective based in Brussels, Belgium and counting 3 actual members (Jah Piet, Fleo Selecta and Babbajah) with different producers and sound engineers gravitating around. The foundation of the crew goes back in 2005 when Jah Piet and Fleo Selecta met in order to share their common passion for Roots/Reggae/Dub. Little by little the vinyl collection got bigger and bigger and they engaged themselves into the promotion of belgian roots music by creating the "Belgian Dub Community" label and free or affordable dub parties in Brussels. They shared line-up with artists such as Mad Professor, Weeding Dub, Prince Fatty and more. They also played alongside crews such as Gamma Sound, Reservoir Dub, Mighty Patch, Unification, Dub Riots, and many more… Since 2012, Babbajah, their official micman, is usually singing his conscious lyrics on their B-faces or productions. The homebuild soundsystem is under construction right now in order to provide some deep bass and a powerful message and they'll try to have it ready for the next edition of the B.S.F. to bring the belgian dub school under the greek sun !
Love, Inity and Blessings ! Ras Tafari !
