Rootstime prod. on LinkedIn.com; & music updates

Rootstime Production is now linked in with LinkedIn.com; fyi: one has to join LinkedIn.com to network on their site. Big respect goes out to Carlos Culture; https://www.facebook.com/carlosculture for the design of the Rootstime Production logo. This is the logo that will be featured on all works coming from the Rootstime production label. On that note, all tracks have been mixed and mastered for the upcoming compilation album: Rootstime Riddim (aka iDrop Riddim): Various Reggae Artists; and the hand-drawn artwork for the album cover came out beautiful. Currently the art is with our graphic artist who is adding the album credits to the custom cover art. Some big links are in progress for distribution in hopes of reaching as broad an audience worldwide as possible. All the hard work and collaborative effort on this album will soon be available to music lovers around the world. The live reception from artists that have already performed their tunes off the album at concerts has been likened to "medicine" for the musicians and vibes from the crowd response....Jah bless brother Ishmel Mcanuff for carrying his tune off the project all the way to Europe, where he witnessed a tremendous response from large festival crowds in France, Switzerland, and Germany, when his band performed his song, "Time a get Tough" live for the festival crowds in attendance. Give thanks for the love and support worldwide. Soon come with the full album release....In the good time, keep the love strong! Rootstime is now.

Rootstime Production 2012: RoxiRock debut single "Samething" now on iTunes




“Samething,” the debut 2012 single from the duo RoxiRock, rooted in reggae, combines a mix of soulful vocals, percussive drum and bass, keyboard, and rhythmic guitar lines. This original song is about the challenges young people face today, conveyed through "breezy" melodies and a driving rhythm section.

RoxiRock; Rakisha and Raquel Wilson, born and raised in Jamaica; grew up in a musical environment singing background vocals in the studio from an early age with their dad Rappa Robert (aka Musical Sniper). Many influences played a part in their love of all genre of music. Being constantly around musicians and artists, and the sound systems on the streets of Jamaica playing; Dennis Brown, Marcia Griffiths, and Beres Hammond; are some of their earliest musical memories still influencing them today.

"When we were younger we would hear more roots and culture music, and we never heard a lot of explict music like today; So our influences come from those roots reggae tunes and musical versions that actually had meaning to everyday people's lives and the things affecting them a that time." RoxiRock says.

"Samething" premiers RoxiRock's smooth vocals and contemporary lyrical content, and is an example that young artists can spread a conscious message while still maintaining a progressive and refreshing sound. Produced by Jason "Jahson" Murphey and Robert "Musical Sniper" Wilson for Rootstime Production llc (2012).
