Tonight out here in Edmonton Iron Lion and Oh Snap! are throwing Roots And Culture Volume One, Committed to bringing you 100% real vibes and legit culture alongside some of the most banging roots infused bass heavy sounds from across the globe. To start things off right we are stoked to have...

Delhi 2 Dublin

Delhi 2 Dublin is the new sound of music. Blending east and west, electronic and acoustic, mainstream and underground, the five member D2D crew takes listeners on a wild and borderless trip with their global sounds. The band fuses the traditional sounds of, tabla, dhol, fiddle, and sitar with cutting edge DJ aesthetics, to create a highly charged multi-cultural dance celebration. Originally formed for a one-shot performance during Vancouver's Celtic Fest in March of 2006, word of their foot stomping, high energy live set started to spread, and the project took on a life of its own. Recently, D2D was invited to open the massive Canada Day celebrations on Parliament Hill in Ottawa and have since played many of the West Coast Canadian festivals. With the help of global fusion pioneer Adham Shaikh, they’ve just finished production of their first full length CD.

Kush Arora

Kush Arora has seen the “Dread Bass” sound evolve for the past ten years, and has solidified his spot in the dub community, with his signature style of Punjabi roots combined with a curious case for punk and industrial sounds. Kush started meeting MCs and vocalists from around the world who bring a dangerous, yet insightful feel to his music.

"Dancehall and BHangra music, warp it into the future and load it full of bullets in dub. Sped up garage riddims punjabi style with dread bass, broken santoor dubstep..."


MC ZULU does not make reggae in the traditional sense. His unique blend of electro bass grooves and Caribbean style dancehall vocals creates a new form of dancehall reggae from the outer reaches of space. Trippy synths and huge bass kicks and claps make his music rhythmically frenetic and exotic. ZULU defines a new style of progressive electro-dancehall riddim.
