Shere Khan and Root Sensation Presents: Dub ‘N’ Light
Powered by King Simeon Sound System
Young soundman rising up the ranks, fully inspired by the older heads that paved the way before him. Shere Khan has been reaching sound system sessions at a frenetic pace for the last 6 years, aiming to absorb as much of this unique vibe and sound as possible.
Whether it be Iration Steppas, Channel One, Aba Shanti-I or King Earthquake, amongst others, Shere Khan would travel, land, sea and air to pursue this passion. These soundmen have the ability to create a rare vibe, one that was unmatched in so many other musical performances. To summarise what this vibe is, or why it captivates would take too long, it is something that simply has to be experienced.
Continually on this musical quest to learn and absorb, Shere Khan recently traveled to Kingston, Jamaica to go straight to source, uncover vinyl gems, travel up Orange Street, and visit various relics of reggae and sound system history.
Shere Khan now selects in arenas around the country offering his own brand of deep, dark, powerful and hard hitting rootical tunes from eras both old and new. Nothing watered down, no compromise, just pure, unfiltered music.
Shere Khan has now adopted a resident position on London’s Life FM. The show features once every 2 weeks, Tuesday nights, 10-12pm, and features everything from rare rootical gems, to uncovered acetate dubplates soon to be released. All these shows can be listened back to on this Soundcloud page.
Under the watchful tutelage of Channel One Sound System, Shere Khan is always learning and observing, in turn enhancing his own skills as a musical entity.
Just at the beginning of this musical journey so watch this space…

His dj sets range from deep rare roots reggae, dub, to heavy steppas characterised by the unique use of echos, delays pedals effects and siren among his positive and spiritual message on the microphone. Carrying a varieties of crispy dubplates and own featured productions, his selection is always a great experience full of positive vibes and a warm sound, with a special attention to the use of healing frequencies.
In a every day research for roots rarities and new productions characterised by heavy bass line, stepping roots drums reef and inspiring spiritual lyrics.
After moving to the UK in 2010 he started to become a regular name among the UK reggae scene working as a sound engineer recording vocals for songs and dubplates at his home studio.
Digging for old tunes to re-release, travelling to meet producers and make new connections and new productions in the name of freedom and love for this music culture.
Co-owner and co-founder of “Roots Traders” and “Digital Traders”, has now founded a new record label “Roots Sensation Re.” and the first 7″ vinyl has just been released with a production by Mighty Prophet tune entitled “Jah Army”.
From the 90’s a love of the music, guided by good friends and a link up with InI Oneness for further knowledge. 99′ and I start carrying boxes with Iration Steppas sound, plenty tuff sessions all over the country.
Honoured to be in one of the tightest crew for setting up those days. Also learning time for studio, mark running dubs and getting feedback.
Around 2004 and I start helping with Jah Tubbys, since living in London… plenty more sessions and learning. Studio continue and start releases. Big tune with Black Lion & Errol Bellot – Jah Love Is Universal played all over followed up with plenty of projects with various producers. Also further releases on the label and Jah Tubbys label.
Had to heed the itch… With guidance from Jah Tubbys himself and with help from a friend (River), I set about designing and building boxes for the sound itself.
Feb 10th 2012 and Dubwise promotions (rspx Malachi n crew) give a start to the sound with a session alongside King Earthquake & Young Warrior @ Mass, Brixton. The last session for the venue and strong turn out, plenty friends supporting. A few more sessions before the year is out… each session is a further opportunity to tune up and make mods to the set. Playing alongside Instrument Of Jah, Emperor Fari & Papa Roots.
July 2013 and the full sound is taken down to St. Pauls carnival for the day, Jah Tubbys spot, playing all day with Jah Tubbys himself playing through into the evening.
Music productions continue and further links and sessions all over Europe. Many many tunes still waiting to be played for the first time on the sound as we continue the Sound System journey.
