avatar for Ras Kush

Ras Kush

Selector Ras Kush has been an active part of the sound system culture since the early 1990s. His entry in the performing arena began with a sound system called “Roots Potential,” which eventually became “Black Redemption: Sounds of Praises” with the addition of personnel like Japan’s Ras Takashi.  The system followed in the footsteps of the original Jamaican pioneers, bringing UK-influenced steppers/warrior style music to NYC. The style was anointed as the official sound of the Wackies label and has since become a world-wide influence that can be heard in a plethora of music from rap to pop music in 2016.

Kush has continued to tour the world as a selector and DJ, showcasing the dub and classic Jamaican roots sounds spanning the golden era of roots music. He has appeared at major festivals including the Sierra Nevada World Music Festival, USA Roots & Dub Expo, Dub Camp (France), and Fusion Festival (Germany).

He continues to record, boasting recent material that supports a new generation of singers including Micah Shemiah, Wolette Seyon and David OneAway.
