Baroque Dub Mixtape Twenty Four [bdmx0024]

Digital Reggae

Inspiration for this 2 year anniversary mixtape comes courtesy of Relaxxx who (like so many before him) got in touch to say that mixtape 5 was his favourite so far - what is it with that techdub compilation?! Well he liked the fact that it was more "electro" than usual which got me thinking about early dancehall, and the fact that I hadn't yet featured that more digital end of the reggae spectrum...

I've crammed in too many classics into this special extended mix to mention each one in turn but a special mention goes to Jah Billah for letting me have a special edition copy of his Locobrigida remix and to Rockamovya - a collective of five musicians spanning the roots of Jamaican reggae and American jazz and who's track 'Warrior Sound' off their new album is destined to be the soundtrack to my summer. Get ready to bop your heads and get set for some sunshine reggae festival magic.
