Glyne Brathwaite aka ROOD is no stranger to house music and has been behind the decks since the early 1990s, DJing at Energy , The Wag Club and Phantasy . He went on to DJ around the world at Ministry of Sound, Pacha, Fabric, Miami Winter Music Conference and in Seattle, San Francisco, Switzerland, Paris to name a few. He was the resident DJ for Ministry of Sound’s Stereo Sushi events and radio show. In the early 2000’s he ran Rude Awakening Promotions, handling PR for labels including Masters at Work, King Street, Naked Music, Papa Records, GoGo Music, Large, Distant, 83 West, Soulshine, Talkin’ Loud, BBE and many more. Rude Awakening closed its doors in 2007 when the music world went digital and Glyne took a 7-year break from music, but he couldn’t stay away forever and in 2014 ROOD was born.
Glyne says about the track: “The inspiration for 4 Acres And A Mule came when I was watching The Colour Purple . There was some chanting in one of the scenes that I thought would work well in an afro house track. The name comes from the ” 40 acres and a mule”, that were given to freed slaves in America after the Civil War.
