Datura Roots Collective – The D.R.C. – are an eclectic roots fusion five-piece from Teignmouth that’s been tearing up the UK scene, quickly becoming renowned for their vibrant sounds, stage energy and crowd engagement.
Crafted and inspired by many genres from roots reggae and dub pioneers to the old smokey blues and jazz clubs, their sound is a cross-pollination of their love of Hip Hop, twisted up with electronica from electro-swing to live drum and bass.
Expect a delirious cocktail of soulful vocals, mad bars and hype, blistering sax and raw swirling guitar, allied with an irresistible groove guaranteed to make you lose your mind.
The D.R.C.’s unique blend of styles and high-octane live shows have seen them successfully rock stages at some of UK’s major festivals including Boomtown Fair, Beautiful Days, Oceanfest, Port Elliot and many others.
They’ve also supported several favourites on the UK and international gig circuit, including Gentleman’s Dub Club, Zion Train, Dubioza Kolektiv, Electric Swing Circus, Chainska Brassika and BBC Radio 6’s Donn Letts.
2020 brought an enforced reflective year to recharge the batteries, until a live session for MIDI TV saw the band back centre stage when they featured on BBC Spotlight News.
Renewed and ready to do what they do best, The D.R.C. are set to enchant and capture the senses of music lovers at Rock Oyster and across the UK and beyond.
