Inner Standing Sound System

The 2011 USA Roots Reggae Dub Expo

The USA Roots Reggae Dub Expo is a showcase of Rastafari Roots and Dub Sound System culture for the United States. At each event, US based Sounds string up, and play tunes from evening until morning. They share Roots music in a unified fashion, each bringing their unique style and selection. Participating sounds include Blackheart Warriors, Wildfyah Rootikal, Fasimbas, APS US, Mystic, Black Redemption, Mike B, and producers Brizion and Kris Naphtali. Through their works they hold firm to traditional Sound System culture, building their own custom sets, and remaining livicated to Roots music, old and new. In 2010, the first annual events in Baltimore, MD and San Diego, CA were a striking success. For Mike B, an expo organizer, “The USA RRDE 2010 – San Diego was a life changing experience… the strong feeling of unity in the dance, the oneness of purpose, and the uplifting vibes in the place showed me what is really possible with sound systems.” This year the expo will consist of one event held on the West Coast in San Diego, CA on September 17th. For folks in the US who make the trip, they will be able to experience properly tuned and amplified Roots music through heavy Sound Systems; but without having to travel all the way to Europe…
