Skanks Roots Project is a reggae group formed from musicians around California. The group formed as a collaboration idea of Dj Skanks and musician, producer, E.N Young (member of Tribal Seeds). SRP consist of Eddie Blunt (High Tide), J. Rips (KeepItLit), Danny Dread (Roots Covenant), Chris Murray (High Tide), Samuel Guest (Roots Platoon), Mike E.P and have regular guest appearances by Lexy Love and Animo. All members have met over the past few years at one point or another during shows and recording sessions. They formed as an official group at the end of 2012 at Imperial Sound Recording Studio in Southern California. Combining that San Diego roots vibe that Blunt, Young, and Dread bring to the table and lacing it with the NorCal flavor of Skanks, Rips, and Animo…it truly is a west coast bridge blessed by Jah! The first single “Wild Flower” was a project idea that came to Dj Skanks and from then on they knew they had something special. They have followed up the hit Wild Flower with three murder albums that has San Diego BIG'N up SRP! Their music has a cool swag that will get fans feeling that Cali reggae lovin’ vibe.
