Riddims Watch: Rolling Roots

The Rolling Roots Riddim is a new riddim to come out from Tool Production this July. The riddim aptly lives up to it’s name, presenting a slow rolling roots reggae track perfectly fitting a variety of different vocal styles and approaches. With a groovy bass track and some subtle guitar inflections, Rolling Roots provides a great backdrop to reggae music for our generation, making nice bridge between hip hop pacing and reggae dancehall instrumentation. This track features the acrobatic vocals of Ricardo Clarke with “Always Gonna Talk” to lead things off. After that, Mystic Loic brings this to a more personal note with “Close To Me”, and then finally Leah Rosier brings it home with a dramatic change in vocal style with “When I Get To You”. The Rolling Roots Riddim is great for a mid-tempo chilled out groove, leaving plenty of room to make the track your own, and pleasing audiences from all sorts of tastes and backgrounds. Be sure to check out the Rolling Roots Riddim on WERS.org as well as others like it on Rockers—Boston’s home for reggae from 7-10 PM weeknights on WERS!
