Selekta Roots Adrian
“The Roots Doctor”
When you talk about Roots Reggae music being played in clubs or events in kenya, There’s a particular name that seems to always never miss in such a conversations. It is agreeable that not much is being said about roots reggae, actually, not just the ‘commercial-sing-along’ roots reggae but the real authentic roots reggae from the hitherto ‘not-very-publicized’ artists/bands like Joyce bond, the Skatalites, Laurel Aitken, prince buster, the scientist, general echo, The Melodians, The Chantells etc.. The list is endless. Well, this is where the name Selekta Roots Adrian comes in. He doesn’t write though. His is a rollercoaster journey through corridors and back alleys of the roots reggae music hall of fame and underground listings beat by beat. Yes, he is a deejay. A roots reggae deejay.
The Roots Doctor, Selekta (selector) Roots Adrian, was born Adrian Emunye ages ago and though he started deejaying as a hobby, It is quite visible that his concentration on mastering the art through practice sessions indicate a major shift from just a hobby pastime to making the noble art become a full blown career. He honed his skills at Natty-d Vibrations, moved on to Daddyfamily Entertainment, and currently at Rastyle sounds, Kenya’s premier reggae sound system.
Selekta Roots Adrian’s style is just as different and unique as the style adopted by Rastyle sounds and is basically an understanding and love for roots reggae music thats goes beyond the scope of the regular deejay. With every set is a promised ride from the vintage and rare tunes that you haven’t heard elsewhere or in a long while that leaves you with the ‘who played that song’ question to the relatively ‘new’ reggae tunes that you are used to. His reggae foundations skill set is positively not confined to only roots music, he is versatile as well and can hold down a dancehall party like no other. A well-balanced flip flop through the reggae sands of time.
Through Rastyle sounds, Selekta Roots Adrian plays 6 days a week in various clubs in Kenya with sell-out shows in every session.
