They will be joined on stage by the amazing tribal fusion belly dance and silk fan performances by Cleo Femi and Elle Sugar.

“Hiphop phenomenon The Root Sellers serve up a stellar slab of Reggae-tinged party grime.” – Mix Mag.

Nominated for an internationall Breakspoll award for Best Remix (Utah Saints Remix of their smash hit Rock One), pushing out the largest crop of releases yet for this summer and having rocked multiple 65,000 person sold out crowds at BC Place stadium for the Vancouver Olympics this is a break out year for The Root Sellers.

The Root Sellers sound is created by traveling around the world with laptop computers and a digital hand recorder. People, sounds and atmospheres from the forests of Africa, rolling hills of California, the beaches in Indonesia, rivers in China, the mighty rainforests of British Columbia, the rugged beauty of Nova Scotia and the pristine Yukon all come alive in the music of The Root Sellers.

The Root Sellers have electrified dance floors, with major performances at Burning Man, Shambhala, Evolve Festival and the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. The Sellers’ remixes and collaborations with Myagi, Utah Saints, Nick Thayer, DZ, Si Begg, ill. Gates, Jpod and Sticky Buds have been published on Pop and Lock, Westway, Bombastic Jam, and Swing Set Sounds.

They have recently been hitting the charts on Beatport, Mixmag and IDJ magazines, garnering international acclaim. This summer you can catch sneak peaks of their new tunes and forthcoming new album on Pop and Lock Records.

Also featuring a special performance from DJ Dubconscious

Dubconscious has come to represent both the east and the western coast of Canada.

Born and raised in the Toronto area, attended University in Victoria and currently residing in Nelson, this young selector brings a whole new flavor to the table – heavy basslines mashed up with a roots reggae infusion, funky bashment vibes and turntablism.

He’s also just finished a shit-hot set on the beach stage this past Thursday night, playing to about 4,000 people after Mimosa.

Watch out for his new promo mix, Fractured Sentiments.
