It all began when their Reggae studio in Manchester (UK) demanded more and more activity. Too much talents to record, and too much inspiration to just sit there and do nothing.
In 1995, it was time for Nucleus Roots to start as a band. Their choice of name would turn out to be prophetic. The word nucleus, namely, refers to "a part of the cell containing DNA and RNA and responsible for growth and reproduction".
In the decade that was about to follow, the band produced a number of albums and performed countless of times in the UK and the European continent. Nucleus Roots worked with Desmond Dekker, Fred Locks, Misty in Roots and a whole host of other big names.
In 2007, the band should really be called a group of veterans. Their music is absolutely solid, solid Roots Music. Roots Music that is skillfully mixed into some heavyweight DUB, UK Style of course.
Veterans, by the way, can be recognized because they absolutely feel at home in the music they produce. You hear, that it really is their music and they know what to do.
Don't download their music if you don't want to be infected by this wonderful group, though. It's a guarantee: you want to hear much more of their material as soon as you've listened to the free tracks.
