Despite the chill and drizzle, the Root Down celebrated its 15 years in incredible fashion. An event that captured what Root Down has brought to the stage over the years, showcasing the broad range of styles and cultures its nurtured. Iconic soul singer Syl Johnson rocked with the Breakestra, The Beatnuts mashed it up with Connie Price and the Keystones, Aloe Blacc showed why he has shined these past few years, Cut Chemist proved once again that he is one of the most innovative djs on the planet and the second area was jumping back yard party style with The Lions, Buyepongo and Dj Jeremy Sole. Not to be overshadowed was Dj Rhettmatic and Root Down Sound System djs, Sloe Poke, Ervin Arana, Jedi and Expo laying the foundation grooves throughout the night. Question of the evening was “When is the next one?” Looks like something is definitely brewin’.
