Joshua “Classic Roots” DePerry
Currently based in Toronto but carrying the spirit of Northern Ontario with him. Infusing
tribal rhythms and his own boreal spirit over raw techno beats is his specialty and he
does not disappoint. Drawing inspiration from his life and culture, Classic Roots
developed his original sound through the integration of traditional Anishinaabe drumming
and singing, with a unique sound of techno/house and sound design to establish a
sense of cultural freedom that echoes throughout his music. His beats tell a story that
embodies the bold spirit of the North.
