The sound was created by Scee Naphtali in 2006 rapidly rising from strength to strength and gaining a massive following. After finishing from 22years in a family-owned business, he had time on to finally take up his passion and built a Roots Sound System with the added benefit of Scee’s late father being a Sound Engineer for Voice of Kenya & BBC, this invaluable sound engineering knowledge was handed down first hand, in addition Scee had been going to sound system gatherings since a very young age with his elder brothers all over UK.
We play roots-rock-reggae, dub & steppers music derived from reggae back in the early days. We play many specials commonly known as “Dubplates”, pre-releases and releases. we pride ourselves in mastering the art of playing a sound system and brining a unique vibe to the dances.
We also work with many roots singers and players of instruments who regularly play and sing live when Emperorfari is in session, we work very closely with music producers, this ensures various records are constantly being released on the EMPERORFARI RECORD LABEL, purchased through our online store www.emperorfari.com & all good online record shops worldwide.
