Docta Roots started his journey through the Bass in 2001.
With a serious Reggae/Dancehall and Hip Hop background, it’s only natural that he found his way into Jungle and Drum & Bass. After few years to improve his skills behind the decks, he met Salaryman (RAM/FOKUZ) and joined Totaal Rez, and helps him to build the Totaal Rez Records imprint (RIP). At the same time, he is host of two weekly radio shows, one of which is with his mate Salaryman.
Since then music has become a serious part of his life and his tastes evolved constantly. He has found a new breathe in the Global Bass and UK Funky scene with their syncopated rhythms and energy of the Caribbean and African sounds. But even if Jungle and Drum & Bass will still be his first love, he now mostly plays a blend of UK Bass, Grime, Global Bass and Dancehall.
It’s only a matter of time, friendship and similar musical tastes for Flore (Polaar/Mad Decent/Man Rec) to invite him to join her new musical adventure, POLAAR.
After travelling during 3 years and playing many gigs and festivals in the South Hemisphere , he is now living in Japan and spread the Polaar’s vision of music through this new serie called « Les Douceurs », a monthly (or bi-monthly, it depends on the time and vibes) podcast.
Docta Roots already shared the stage with Buraka Som Sistema, Shy Fx, Scratcha DVA, Marcus Nasty, Monki, Warrior One, Break, Ed Rush, Benny Page, Hydro, The Upbeats, Flore, Iration Steppa, Silkie, Trei, State Of Mind to name a few.
