They had served their apprenticeship way back in the mid to late 70s , when they were both in different sound systems .Brother Yasin joined the team in the early 90’s. As well as playing with all the local sounds from the North West and numerous yrs as resident dj’s in the Band On The Wall throughout the 90’s,countless nights at the famous Hacienda Club ,Zoo club, Club Underground Umist. Freedom Masses have shared dance arenas with likes of Jah Shaka, Jah Baron , Quaker City, Fatman, Jungleman , Jah Tubby’s.

Freedom Masses have their own particular flavour of sound, vibes, style and dub-ability that has been rocking dance arenas around the uk year to year.

BIO: Emperorfari Sound System
(The Powerful Warrior Sound) is a heavyweight Roots and Culture sound system from Leicester. Playing strictly vinyl in the traditional one deck style in the original way with crystal clear high fidelity quality and earth shattering bass from our custom built sound system and controls. The sound originally started in a small way but as taken on a full time roll for the past 8 years and we have never looked back as we are rapidly rising from strength to strength and gaining a massive following. Come and experience sound system roots & culture from the sufferahs sound in pure heavyweight style. Who feels it know its…………………..…………

Emperorfari Sound System was created by Scee Naphtali in 2006, after finishing from 22years in a family owned business, he had time on to finally take up his passion and build a Roots Sound System with the added bonus of Scee’s late father being a Sound Engineer for Voice of Kenya & BBC, the pure sound knowledge was handed onto Scee first hand and he had been going to sound system gatherings since a very young age with his elder brothers.

We play roots & dub music derived from reggae from back in the early days on our unique sound system including many specials commonly know as “Dubplates” but we also play many pre releases and releases so people can actually go out and buy some of the tracks we play. We do not have our own studio and this is a conscious decision as we pride ourselves in mastering the art of playing a sound system and not producing the music.

This also assists in others having a roll to play in sound system culture. We have a strong team of 8 crew. There is myself who operates, selects and chants on the mic as well as Bonnie Blazer and Mr. Feelgood who are mic men for the sound. The rest of the crew Stevo Dan, Jam Dubber, Vish, Shiraz, Dub Fari, George Roots & Lisha all have just as much an important roll organising bookings and events, stringing up the sound, loading off loading and much more but sometimes people forget that the sound is 9 people equally working together, not just the crew members people see at the dances operating the sound. A collective effort from everyone is the under pinning strength of Emperorfari Sound System together with all the people who attend and support the events.

We also work with many roots singers and players of instruments who regularly play and sing live when Emperorfari is in session and also work very closley with “Roots Conference” and many other promotors.

Emperorfari have played with many sounds and in Festivals over UK – Europe – Worldwide / Channel One, Ma-Kaya, King Earthquake, Aba Shanti I, Jah Tubbys, Kilowatt, Word Sound & Power, Massai Warrior, Roots Injection, Hytal Bosra, Kindread, Papa Roots, Sceientis Sound, Lion Youth, Balckboard Jungle, Chalice Sound, Nyabin Sound, Welders, Lion Roots, Shamanie Sounds, Freedom Masses, Instrument of Jah, Jah Command, Killawatt Sound, Junior Blues, King Dread, Jah Voice, Roots Youths, Jah Yabbys, Negus Dub Warrior, Jah Hamma, Jah Lokko,Moa Anbessa, Lord Ambassador to mention a few as far too many to list all.

One behalf of all of the Emperorfari family, we would like to thank all our supporters, brothers and sisters, Roots Conference, players of instruments, promoters, music creators, studios and massively our fellow Sound Systems to keep Jah works going and continually brining everyone to become united as one Nation. Emperorfari is a Ras Tafari I sound, but everyone is welcome in the house of Ras Tafari as most people know. Finally for anyone reading who has never attended a Roots and Culture Sound System dance/session, we urge you to try and experience the upliftment and spiritual vibes for yourselves in a very safe environment with like minded people spreading ONE LOVE

BIO: WAYNE MCARTHUR & UNVERSAL PLAYERS
The seven-piece reggae roots band based in Beds, Bucks & Herts is headed by singer and songwriter Wayne McArthur, ably backed by drum, bass, guitar, keyboard, percussion rhythm section and vocal harmonies. The band have toured extensively throughout the UK since the early 2000’s. They’ve performed at various festivals countrywide, notably the Willowman Festival, Strawberry Fair Festival in Cambridge and the Paradise Fest in Bury St. Edmunds plus a regular at various national carnival live stages performing the artists messages in elements of heartbeat vibrations The band’s genre of roots rock reggae carries a constant theme of cultural and spiritual goodwill, which has been the hallmark of Wayne’s musical career and philosophy – as epitomized by songs such as Rainbow, Victory Dance, and the anthem Universal Harmony the artist concept for the first album debut in early 90’s also the Dread Music Affairs a vocal and dub-wise CD set of Wayne music journeys via the top UK studio’s as the Love, Faith and Belief masterful encounters with Russ Disciples who’s works is sheer UK production Sterling at it’s best!!!

The bands’ repertoire demonstrates the timeless nature of the singer protest material with the set incorporating new, fresh, cutting-edge original songs along with decades of passionate live show experience combined with Wayne’s production and engineering expertise that he coned starting late 70’s as a younger looking into the aspects of starting a record label production on his sound system name MoonWaveMusic Wayne has worked with several producers and companies including Russ D, Steve Vibronics, Dougie Conscious & Dennis Blakamix in addition to engineering and releasing original songs on his own label, M.W.M-Records and recently he created a big impression in the genre when Victory Dance was released through his label on a French label Reggae Remedy as a roots reggae sound dance anthem. The aim of the artist and his band Universal Players is to merger with the now era of reggae new foundation music globally for this revitalized scene to reach people of different origins. The wider appeal of the band music is evident by the club gigs and festivals they’ve played over the years with great flair, entertaining local and international supporters.

Giving the people 100% is important to the lead man of this band, Wayne MC who has never strayed from his ideals, delivering the songs that he so deeply believes in and is avidly passionate about. His message calls for better social living worldwide regardless of race, class origins or gender. The growing underground scene, fueled by the efforts of artists from all cultures, has now given us the opportunity to bring Wayne McArthur & The Universal Players to a new audience that coincide with the strong calls for greater Social Bonding this a recently recorded track that is quite fashionable with the protests of the suppressed masses who are tired of been the undermine when there are clear options of better living options if the elites would learn to listen and care to share as favours seems to flows upwards and never filters down to the poor and needy who have given their whole life to keep the wheels of industry turning to bring some changes of fortunes we hope for better.

Emperorfari Sound System was created by Scee Naphtali in 2006, after finishing from 22years in a family owned business, he had time on to finally take up his passion and build a Roots Sound System with the added bonus of Scee’s late father being a Sound Engineer for Voice of Kenya & BBC, the pure sound knowledge was handed onto Scee first hand and he had been going to sound system gatherings since a very young age with his elder brothers.

We play roots & dub music derived from reggae from back in the early days on our unique sound system including many specials commonly know as “Dubplates” but we also play many pre releases and releases so people can actually go out and buy some of the tracks we play. We do not have our own studio and this is a conscious decision as we pride ourselves in mastering the art of playing a sound system and not producing the music.

This also assists in others having a roll to play in sound system culture. We have a strong team of 8 crew. There is myself who operates, selects and chants on the mic as well as Bonnie Blazer and Mr. Feelgood who are mic men for the sound. The rest of the crew Stevo Dan, Jam Dubber, Vish, Shiraz, Dub Fari, George Roots & Lisha all have just as much an important roll organising bookings and events, stringing up the sound, loading off loading and much more but sometimes people forget that the sound is 9 people equally working together, not just the crew members people see at the dances operating the sound. A collective effort from everyone is the under pinning strength of Emperorfari Sound System together with all the people who attend and support the events.

We also work with many roots singers and players of instruments who regularly play and sing live when Emperorfari is in session and also work very closley with “Roots Conference” and many other promotors.

Emperorfari have played with many sounds and in Festivals over UK – Europe – Worldwide / Channel One, Ma-Kaya, King Earthquake, Jah Tubbys, Aba Shanti I, Word Sound & Power, Massai Warrior, Roots Injection, Hytal Bosra, Kindread, Papa Roots, Sceientis Sound, Lion Youth, Balckboard Jungle, Chalice Sound, Nyabin Sound, Welders, Lion Roots, Shamanie Sounds, Freedom Masses, Instrument of Jah, Jah Command, Kilowatt Sound, Junior Blues, King Dread, Jah Voice, Roots Youths, Jah Yabbys, Negus Dub Warrior, Jah Hamma, Jah Lokko,Moa Anbessa, Lord Ambassador to mention a few as far too many to list all.

One behalf of all of the Emperorfari family, we would like to thank all our supporters, brothers and sisters, Roots Conference, players of instruments, promoters, music creators, studios and massively our fellow Sound Systems to keep Jah works going and continually brining everyone to become united as one Nation. Emperorfari is a Ras Tafari I sound, but everyone is welcome in the house of Ras Tafari as most people know. Finally for anyone reading who has never attended a Roots and Culture Sound System dance/session, we urge you to try and experience the upliftment and spiritual vibes for yourselves in a very safe environment with like minded people spreading ONE LOVE.
