About

RootsCollider is an "Underground Funktronic Dance Rock" band from Rochester, NY that uses a studio producer's approach to writing original music. The group creates it's art primarily by layering melodies, rhythms, and samples made in Ableton with an anthemic riff rock approach. Think of if Rage Against the Machine & The Beastie Boys went to an illicit warehouse rave and collaborated with all of the DJ's from EDM's golden era of the 1990's.
