The Strides’ music builds on classic roots reggae with a hip-hop edge, forging a sound that brings together modern dance hall, jazz and afrobeat
Hailing from Sydney, THE STRIDES have become a new force for urban roots music. Fronted by Reggae Master Ras Roni from Barbados via London, and Fijian MC Ltl Gzeus, The Strides have delivered their classic sound to crowds across the country, delivering a musical experience that is as powerfully explosive as it is authentic.
With two acclaimed albums already under their belt, a European label signing, festival appearances across the country and having graced the stage with the likes of Julian Marley, Tony Allen and Groundation, The Strides’ music faithfully builds on the foundations of classic roots reggae with a hip-hop edge, forging a sound that brings together modern dance hall, world beats and reggae-pop. The Strides have forged a truly global sound melding a diversity of cultures and instrumentation under the one universal consciousness.
With a calling card of powerfully melodic horns, infectious bass lines, easy musings and a magnetic stage presence between its two lead vocalists, the Strides are an 8-piece collective of multi-talented songwriters and musicians. Having bunkered down for an intensive week long hothouse of jamming and songwriting, the tracks for their forthcoming long player were laid down at U-Live Studios outside of Byron Bay, and later mixed at Tanuki Lounge in Brisbane’s West End by producer / engineer Paulie B.
