Joshua DePerry is known in the Anishinaabe community as a colourful ‘fancy dancer’ who impressively integrates contemporary dance moves at traditional pow wows. In Toronto, he is known as Classic Roots, an up-and-coming music producer and DJ who blends Indigenous sounds with modern techno and house music.

TURNING TABLES is an uplifting story of resilience, passion and faith, and ultimately a positive reminder that it is possible to look to the future without losing sight of the past.



RELEASE DATE 2017-11-13 
LABEL M5 Records

Currently based in Toronto but carrying the spirit of Northern Ontario with him, Classic Roots is one of Canada's best kept secrets. Infusing tribal rhythms and his own boreal spirit over raw techno beats is his specialty and he does not disappoint for his debut release with M5! Red Pill's slamming kick drum and powerful energy grab you from the opening beat and take you right into the matrix of techno bliss. The young and talented, Anthony Tomov brings some eastern flavor to this release with his melody oriented interpretation. Fat beats coupled with dirty little stabs and hints of the original vocal make Anthony's remix a peak time affair fit for any dance floor. With POLS remix we get a festival ready earth scorcher of a techno beast complete with a 303 reminiscent bassline and huge drops. We hope you enjoy Classic Roots Red Pill as much as we do!
