“Why should we be in so much haste to succeed, and in such desperate enterprises. If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away,” said Henry David Thoreau and seven years on from their humble beginnings in a Balsall Heath bedroom, Rockers Hir (nee Original Rockers) continue to defy categorisation with their warm and bass-heavy mix of dub, beats and house. In an era when every new style is so quickly submerged in the melting pot of modern music, it’s good to hear something with it’s own unique sound, a rne blend of classic influences holding its head above the swirling waters of style clashes and mismatches. A great group at the peak of their creativity.
