Vrij // Masego Sound System

Masego soundsystem is a handbuilt roots and dub soundsystem based in Rotterdam, Netherlands. The performing crew consist of two selectors named Erik Jah and Mathical, and the dedicated mc-chanter Jakob Trinity.

Taking inspiration from the original Jamaican and United Kingdom soundsystem culture they have been active since 2009 as selectors going by the name of Original Dub Radix.

After a couple of years playing various events they felt the need for a strong link in their own hometown. They started to organize events in Rotterdam and worked with King Shiloh Soundsystem, Jah Shaka, Jah Tubbys world soundsystem, Mad Professor, Imperial Sound Army, Rise and Shine soundsystem, Young Warrior, Gussie P, Joseph Lalibela, Nish Wadada, Murray Man, Jah Version, Black Omolo, Jah Rootz, Lyrical Benjie and many more.

While hosting various successful events in and around Rotterdam and being booked on festivals in the Netherlands and abroad they never stopped working on their own soundsystem. With a burning passion for the culture, the roots and the dub they saw the moment their soundsystem came alive and with that, the birth of a new name. Masego means Blessed in the Tswana language, the name reflects to the mission and the passion of JAH music. Now armed with their 6 scoop soundsystem they continue their works, spreading the message of Rastafari Itinually.
