To celebrate the first club show with the new custom-built Roots Daughters Soundsystem, we`ve curated a very special line-up to appreciate the different influences and global evolution of soundsystem culture, with regards to the foundation.
With “Queens Alliance” we`re opening up a platform to share stories and sounds from an underrepresented perspective – so join us in breaking down barriers with the uplifting power of reggae music (and beyond!) through a proper, soul shaking Soundsystem experience.
Hosted by Roots Daughters (Berlin)
Heavily inspired by rastafari and Jamaican sound system culture, their sessions are a space of upliftment, sharing vibes, knowledge, music, developing skills and empowering one another. Both are passionate vinyl collectors who will make you experience Reggae Music in all it’s beauty and versatility – from its foundations to recent releases.
Before the pandemic they were regularly organising events to represent female* activists in the scene. Now, with their new hand-built sound system they’re ready to resume the work and take it to the next level.
Sisters In Dub (Coventry, UK)
The all-female Reggae sound system collective comprised of Cherelle Harding, Danniella Dee & Dj Kat. Coventry natives, all 3 of the Sisters have unique musical journeys. From classical training, gospel, reggae, 2-tone foundations & growing up in sound system families. These influences & experiences inspired the birth of Sisters in Dub.
Representing women in a male-dominated space, Sisters in Dub play a mix of meditative dub, deep roots reggae and energetic steppas – incorporating melodic vocals & live instruments to create a unique, vibrant performance; whilst retaining an authentic Jamaican sound system vibe.
Sisters in Dub are undoubtedly the most exciting prospect to emerge from Coventry for some time. The all-female chariot of fire aims to reignite the sound system flame in their hometown and beyond, inspiring the next generation & becoming the future of sound system culture.

Sharing uplifting messages to the masses, with no rules and no boxes to fit in – though she is technically inspired by soundsystem culture when mixing the music she uses her platform to promote authenticity and knowledge of self.
