The small New York label Easy Star started operating in the mid-nineties, just like so many other independent labels, releasing some reggae productions from artists on the local scene and re-editing historic Jamaican material. Easy Star evolved in 2003 thanks to the great idea, to create a bridge between psychedelic rock and the purest spirit of Jamaican dub, remaking in the key of dub, track by track, a masterpiece of rock such as "Dark Side of the Moon "by Pink Floyd. "Dub Side of the Moon" quickly became a classic: the beautiful concerts of the house band, dubbed Easy Star All- Stars, were very successful and were immortalised in a memorable DVD. In spite of the other great albums reworked since then, "OK Computer" by Radiohead, "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" by the Beatles and "Thriller" by Michael Jackson, "Dub Side of the Moon" is still the groups masterpiece, so much so that, to celebrate the tenth year of its release, Easy Star All-Stars have been on a world tour in which they perform it in its entirety and it is with this dub spirit that they will return to Rototom Sunsplash.
