To attend a Rudy Roots party is to be swept up in a sea of skanking feet and sweat-soaked bodies gyrating to the rhythm of an ever-surprising trip through genres. Effortlessly combining styles from Roots Reggae to Rub a Dub, modern Reggae beats, Hip Hop Remix, Nu Roots, Ragga Jungle and Digital, the unmatched dynamism of a Rudy Roots DJ set maintains an inescapable energy from start to finish. With 15 years performing internationally and 5 years organising and promoting the now legendary ‘Reggae Rules the Beach’ parties in North Goa, India, Rudy is a master of the art of selecting and mixing, an intuitive conductor of audiences.
A Rudy Roots event is an experience not to be missed…
