download (192kbps mp3) [115MB]

This one's more than a little bit special... Beese and Brtschitsch start us off with a slow burning take on the nature of time before we slow things down even more with Chalawa, Creation Rebel and a rare Sir Collins washedelic dub classic. Leroy Smart gets a series of superfluous vocals cuts started, followed by I-Roy's conscious words and the Abyssinians' sweet, sweet harmonies. John Holt's Tribal War, Ernest Wilson, Al Cambell - all great vocalists backed by the best of the best of Jamaica's musicians and producers before Bim Sherman wraps up this round of pure roots gold. We then turn the clock back to the days of rocksteady and early reggae courtesy of Winston Francis, The Freedom Singers and Prince Buster, all reminders that bass culture has a history well worth investigating. This timeless pedigree is more than apparent in The Circle's Mammy Blue - a beautiful groove which flows effortlessly into a more modern offering from Chinese Man. Spy From Cairo spices things up before yet another sublime Richard Dorfmeister mix cranks up the party vibe. The eclectic and highly recommended Fat Beat Sound System bring things right up to date with a cross-cultural dancehall gem then, finally, The Gaylads slip and slide into a never ending, ageless riddim that's at once ska, rocksteady and roots reggae. And did I mention that there's even a hidden track to lull you off to sleep? I hope you enjoy this one as much as i enjoyed making it :)
