The Heartical Family
Who We Are and When We Play
I am a selectress rocked by reggae music from a very young age. I met, on my way, many people and artists who developed my culture & understanding of the messages. My deep desire is to express the meditation that I feel when I listen to music in my shows & to share the powerful, humanistic, unifying messages that reggae brings. Humbly with respect for all the creators of music who build their vision, I seek by the force of the subject to elevate my consciousness, my reflection on the world and my spirituality. I also have the pleasure of interviewing artists, to link their creations to their personal history. It’s always a chance to discover that, behind deep music & lyrics, is a person who shares his vision of the world. Meet me for a conscious and vibratory exchange every two Monday in ROOTS TRAVEL

funkymorrison takes us on a journey between the past and present of African reggae music. The awareness typical of Jamaican Rasta music in Africa has taken on an increasingly significant value over the years in the denunciation and struggle and still today there are many artists who make it the standard-bearer of the name of Jah Rastafari. However, today it is difficult to associate the lyrics and the themes, but above all also the music itself, from the Jamaican dancehall to the original Roots reggae of the 70s-80s. even in Mama Africa, today, it becomes difficult to combine “reggae” with the current rhythms and styles of the music produced in the different areas of the continent. Its musical relevance is in fact more its own than Afrobeat and the many musical labels coined to define the different genres between the various countries of the continent. In short, it is only a question of "labels" but in the end "music is music ..." and the important thing is that "when it plays you don't feel pain"
Don Anxelmo was born in Madrid. At a very young age he discovered and started enjoying urban music in the neighborhood, at concerts and in autonomus collective centers, from rock to rap through reggae: Madrid doesn't have a beach but Jamaica is not that far away.
He started out as a DJ playing the first five seconds of each song for his friends: there was so much good music, and so little time. Vinyl collector and eternal traveler, he likes learning from the past to develop the future. He currently collaborates with the San Nicasio radio program "Permítame que insista". He has hosted the program "El Crisol" on Smradio, based in Athens for two sessions. He has also been finalist in the mixtape contest in the 27th edition of rototom Sunsplash festival.
Currently, Don Anxelmo and his Buenaventura focus on Ska, Reggae roots, dub and other tropical rhythms.

Describing myself as a vinyl collector, I've been addicted to reggae dub Music for many years now. The city of Toulouse, where I'm from, is also a hot spot for the sound system culture. Activist and enthusiastic about this scene, I started in radio as a guest under my alias Original Irie alongside local sound systems (Redline, Zongo). I have the strong wish to propose a unique sound immersion through a versatile selection : early reggae, 70s and 80s roots, rub a dub, dubwise. So on the third Wednesday of every month 6-8PM UK/19-21h. Fr. put on your skanking shoes and come share the vibe!

Reggae and dub selectors out of Berlin, better known as Behold and Live Soundsystem. We were part of various underground soundsystem activities in and around Berlin since 2007, trying to promote roots and dub music in its various styles and forms from heartical roots music to mad digital styles, minimal dubs and heavy steppers. But besides the big speaker boxes culture, where we sometimes have to fight hard to survive in a big city, there was always a passion for mixtape sessions in our own yards. Free of any stress or pressure, here we can deal with the music more personally, just spending a good time in a smokey room!

King David Growing up with a skateboard under my feet circling around our youth club where breakdance, graffiti & rap was prominent, I fell in love love with jamaican styles of music in my teenage days. I started collecting and djaying reggae about the age of 16, so let´s say around 1993. With holes in my shoes and not a penny in my pocket I started to set up King David Soundsystem in 1995. It has always been a work in progress system. I started with 500 Watts and played roughly 10k around 2010. I travelled to many places and met a lot of people. I really give thanks fort that amazing experience. Jah know! Living in Berlin since 2000 I´ve been an integral part of the local Reggae/Soundsystem scene until around 2012. Being the father of two sons I felt like I had to ease up a little and took a break from the scene. Fortunately - as we all know that life goes in circles - my boys themselves are growing to be teenagers and I´m here to proudly present the Ital Breakfast Radioshow to heartical listeners & family 2nd Saturday each month. Tune in & stay blessed!

We all defend the right; children of the world must unite.
My name is zkum and I have been spinning vinyl for a few years. I learned how to DJ at uncle otto in a small punk bar in hamburg. Music is a weapon and the lyrics are the bullet. This strength that music carries is my passion in reggae as well as in other music genres. The versatility in music is my life. I am very grateful to have a place on hearticalfm and will fill the space with my reggae vinyl and freedom sound. I regularly go live on mixcloud and also publish my sets there. I come in peace and bring love to all children of the world.

As a youth growing up in North Carolins, U.S.A. I would DJ house parties and make mix tapes for friends, then in 1990, RIGHTEOUSNESS was awoken within me. From that time to now, InI have known that the problem of the world today is a lack of LOVE, TRUTH, and JUSTICE, therefor InI prescribe The Teachings of HIS MAJESTY and anyone chanting similar vibrations through the World Class Sounds of Roots Reggae through InI show called, The Roots Cypher.
The Roots Cypher Show is for everyone, young, old, the unrighteous, those on a Forward Path to JAH, and those that only want to hear some Good Sounding Muzik, I welcome You All.
