Roots United is a collective of like-minded musicians, DJs, promoters, visual artists and simply friends, based in St. Petersburg, Russia.
For the last 7 years Roots United have organized more than 60 music events in St. Petersburg and all over the country. Some of their guests were Marcel Dettmann, Move D, Nina Kraviz, DJ Sotofett, Aux 88, DJ Stingray, Plaid, Moritz von Oswald, MCDE and many others.
In 2015 they have started their own vinyl label with releases from the crew members such as Nocow and Kausto, whose productions represent the sound of Roots United.
Their most important event, the Present Perfect Festival, dedicated to electronic music, contemporary art and technologies happened for the first time in summer 2015. 40 artists and thousands of dancers were united for a 19 hours rave at the biggest open-air museum in Eastern Europe. This July the festival grew up to 8000 capacity and became one of the most respected music events in post-soviet space.
For the Future Rising launch party Roots United will be represented by the key residents of the community: Hoopa, Shutta, El, whose sets are available in the recent Boiler Room broadcasting series from St. Petersburg dating back to July 2016.
