One of the problem I see when these labels are doing a 'Best of The Year', they are tied up with titles in their catalogue. With the possibility to purchase song by the piece through iTunes and the li ...

I've also done such playlists with the mentioned Greensleves Sampler's (23h) and Jet Star's Reggae Hits (41h). These "series playlists" are all massive things, but nice to drop in somewhere ...

In case you weren't aware, VP have always released the STB series in pairs. The even numbered one is Reggae and the odd numbered one is Dancehall.

Yes I'm a ware, I have most of them at home. Ther ...

Yes!, the 90's are the new 80's as far as reggae is concerned, in my not so humble opinion.

Loads of great tunes by top producers.

I love those 80's comps too, MGR.

The Greensleeves Sample ...

...On a serious note, I honestly have tried, to like Ragga, but I just can't wrap my head around the digital side of things. Wink

It took me a very long time and so far, I'm still very selectiv ...

Raggamuffin was one of those "buzzwords" of the time, various songs came out in 1985

I wasn't shure that 'Bashment' was an universal term in dancehall. I remember when I was living in Ba ...

“Ragga” vs. “Dancehall” is a regionalism, pretty much anywhere but the UK the music has always been known as dancehall. I would guess that the term ragga has seemingly fallen out of style because the ...

Another top shelf, release, folks! Wink

Seeed was the only dancehall act I was connecting to. I don't know much their career, but this is an very sad lost in contemporary music. Demba Nabé passed away on June 1st. I was waiting for someone ...
