MIX: Musical Shot - BMC's 80s Rub-A-Dub Session


Early to mid 80s niceness again at BMC's Reggae Mixes. Quite a few not so common tracks here, mostly taken from the LPs or singles with the exception of 3 tunes that were taken from a CD-R I received years ago through the trading-scene, tunes I'm still looking for myself (#15-17 and 29). If I may say so myself, this mix is NICE! Very nice groove throughout, to be used with doors / windows open, volume up and dancing shoes on.
Recipe as usual, no full tunes, one continuous mix with soundsamples, I will not upload the seperate tracks, promotional thing this! A few of these are available as represses / reissues, so look out for those.

Enjoy, summer vibes all the way!

Picture used in the artwork is a fragment of an original Greensleeves (http://www.greensleeves.net) 12" single cover, check out the label if you haven't already, they have a wicked reissue program going!

MIX: Nothing Can Touch The 45 _ 2008 & 2009 - 45s mix


It's often said, the 45 is dead for modern reggae, well, NOT QUITE YET! Here is another episode of BMC's Reggae Mixes with strictly modern tunes (2008 & 2009), still all taken from 45s! Wicked productions, both JA and EU. The Irie Ites camp comes with their latest relick of the originally by Phill Pratt produced Strange Things riddm with the original vocalist, none other than John Holt, voicing it next to a selection of big modern artists like Lutan Fyah, Sizzla and Chezidek. The riddim is played by Mafia & Fluxy, which equals quality! All out on excellent pressed 45s. Besides John Holt, other oldies pass by here, like the Ethiopians with an update on their The Whip on Luv Messenger label, Big Youth with a new tune voiced in his classic style and a remix of Alborosie with the crown prince of reggae Dennis Brown. The Bombist crew is represented here with the wicked Soprano riddim, with the stand-out track on it being the Queen Omega. Tune! Riddim superbly played by Bost & Bim, also reponsible for numerous wicked remixes of, amongst others, old soul and hiphop tunes. Check 'm out! Plenty of other riddim and tracks of well-known and lesser known artists. The mix ends with the more dancehall oriented, wicked Baddaz riddim on Birchill, but all starts with a great tribute to the 45 by Ray Darwin! Keeping the 45 alive!
All tracks taken from 45s, no full tunes here, shorter pieces mixed together to one continuous mix (appr. 45 minutes) with added sound samples. If you rate what you hear, go get them at the usual online sellers. Comments more than welcome, always love hearing people all over the world have been enjoying the music.

MIX: Turbulence & Friends - BMC's Turbulence Showcase


I never made it a secret that Turbulence, born Sheldon Campbell, is one of my favourite artists of the 2000s. Especially the period 2003 - 2006 has been particularly strong for him imo with plenty of wicked singles. His flow is the main thing I highly rate in combination with his ability to both sing and deejay in a strong way; a true 'singjay'. I'm not really a lyrics-man myself, but also in that area he has some very good efforts, especially when he touches subjects against violence, reality style. In my opinion his albums don't really show his skills too well with too many fillers, but each album does have its very strong moments. It's mainly his single-output I've been focussing on though. Turbulence started in the 90s with Xterminator record, opening at Sizzla shows for quite some time, what caused people to see him as a Sizzla copy in those days. Luckily he went his own way soon enough and got good success on his own, making the comparison with Kalonji, deservedly, becoming less and less common. Had a number of hits in JA, of which Notorious probably the biggest together with his combinations with female singer Sasha. He is best at home on roots riddims imo, with his dancehall efforts he doesn't reach that same level. The last two years his overall output decreased both in quality and quantity, but with still a couple of strong tracks each year I still rate the man's music highly. This all was enough reason for me to make a new mix with his music as the theme, in combination with some additional tracks of other artists on the same riddims, to show all listerners to my mixes what I rate about him. Hopefully you'll feel the tunes too. The majority of the tracks are a few years old and it isn't necessarily a 'best of', due to time I had to leave out plenty of other wicked tunes (I could make a next hour without any problem, maybe even will do so some day). It will show the diversity and overall strong delivery of the artist Turbulence - The Future. Let's hope he gets back to the form of those years soon! Leave a comment when you've enjoyed this latest episode of BMC's Reggae Mixes, already 2,5 years online, 33 mixes further and still going strong! Thanks for your support.

LIST: Modern Roots 45s 2008 - a top 50 by BMC

We're at the end of the year again, so I figured why not make a list like previous years of the best modern roots 45s I bought this year (both JA, UK and EU productions). Yeah, you read it well, I'm still one of those that buys 45s of the modern tunes instead of settling for the mp3's.

Here's 50 tunes I've been enjoying a lot this year and hoping for another 50 like these for 2009!

MIX: Overcome - A 2008 Dancehall Mix by BMC


Overcome - A 2008 Dancehall Mix by BMC

With so many dancehall riddims coming out in a row, I decided to mix a whole bunch of 'm together for enjoyment on my bike-rides to work every day. Been enjoying the final result for a few days now and figured I might as well upload it too, surely there are others out there that'll like to hear this sort of overview of 2008 too. Some quite new, others relatively old (for dancehall standards), but for the largest part 2008 as far as I know. This is a step away from my usual mixes of 45s focused on the conscious sounds of today (http://bmc.podomatic.com). These are from mp3's, since many never even appeared on 45 (yet) and all dancehall stylee, meaning different lyrical subjects that might not be to everyone's taste. Without paying much attention to lyrical content, I love the style and even added a bunch of autotune tunes, an effect I very much dislike, but sometimes riddim and vocal flow just make up for the annoying effect. All in all, modern dancehall in the mix. For the roots vibes check my podomatic site linked above and in messages below, for this one, find the download link below the tracklist:

MIX: Do The Thing - a BMC 12" special


New mix, mainly inna rub-a-dub stylee, early to mid 80s vibes, all from their vinyl sources! This time I picked some of my 12" singles to create a new mix with vocals combined with deejay and / or dub versions. As usual the tracks are custom-mixed and also if the 12" is already an extended tune, I've shortened it to a few minutes, as usual: no full tunes at BMC's Reggae Mixes. Labels of records are given with the side of the 12" I took the tune of. Not many of these (if any) are currently commercially available, so it's record fairs, ebay and more of such places to look for these. Personally I love every one of these records, hopefully you do too. Enjoy!

MIX: Delroy Wilson - Let There Be Love


New DOUBLE episode of BMC's Reggae Mixes with a mix based on the music of my favourite reggae singer: DELROY WILSON! I've made quite a few mixes by now, but my favourite singer was still waiting to be the focus of a mix and here it is. Often overlooked, Delroy Wilson doesn't always get the credits he deserves. Double episode, could have easily been a triple or more, so many good tunes by this man! Mix lasts a little under 80 minutes and contains many of my favourite Delroy tracks and some version and deejay cuts. Tunes are from a variety of labels, studios, producers and musicians and cover quite a big part of his career, though mostly focus on the period late 60s - late 70s. His ska recordings for Studio 1 are left out. It's interesting to hear the change in his voice over the years, I here tried to show with 4 versions of Delroy's Dancing Mood going in steps through his career. Personally I've always rated his later period with his voice more matured a bit higher than his early years, but both periods are extensively covered here. Sadly Delroy Wilson died in 1995 at the way too young age of 46 years old, but left behind a catalogue to be enjoyed forever. What a singer.
For all tracks sources are given so if you rate the music, you can track down copies yourself to get the full tunes (as always, here only short pieces are used in one continuous mix, no full tunes) in good quality without samples. Support the music! Check it out and if you appreciate the effort, be so kind to let me know via a comment. Thanks and enjoy!

MIX: Stop the Violence! - a lyrical message

Crime and violence sadly is the order of the day in many places on this earth. Countries at war, countries with huge crime and murder rates, there's just too many of them. Jamaica, the island where the majority of the music of my mixes originates from, is no exception, au contraire, as the french would say. Crime and violence is a big problem for the country, the news is filled with reports on a next murder case; "too much blood a run" as Morgan Heritage sing. I can't speak from experience, I've never been to Jamaica myself, but have heard enough stories to at least have a slight idea of the situation. Since it's such a burning issue for this island that practically breathes music, the subject cannot stay untouched in songs. I do not refer to gun-tunes here, with singers bigging up guns and badman behaviour. Instead I refer to the positive songs by artists addressing the problem, asking for it to stop, no more guns, more unity, a plea for peace. There's a lot of such songs out there and for this mix I've selected a few of them from the last few years that I enjoy a lot and feel have a strong message. Often applicable not only to the situation in parts of Jamaica, but also to many other places on the planet. Certainly not my best mix in terms of transitions or song order, but lyrically hard to beat imo! For those that check most of my modern mixes, you will notice repetition of a few songs from older mixes, that's because I rate the tunes highly and they nicely fit this special episode so I reused them for the purpose. The mix ends with a song more of hope for the future. Lots of text, I know, but I liked to introduce this special episode a bit more extensive this time. Now let the music and singers do the talking.

Stop the violence, stop the crime, show more love, better must come!

Tracklist:
1) Cherine - Kingston State Of Mind (Taxi)
2) Hit List - Stop Di Killing (Fouta)
3) Kashief Lindo - Paradise Jamdown (Joe Frasier)
4) Luciano - Get It Together (Pete)
5) Beres Hammond feat Delly Ranks - Siren (Harmony House)
6) Turbulence - Better Way (Sajay)
7) Sizzla - No Wickedness A Zion (In Time Music)
8) Luciano - Too Much Gunz (In Time Music)
9) Gyptian - Stop The Fussing & Fighting (Pleasure Time)
10) Chezidek - Want To See Love Again (Xterminator)
11) Turbulence - Show More Love (Maximum Sound)
12) Sanchez - Oh Please (Digital B)
13) Capleton - No Guns (Danger Zone)
14) Turbulence - Shoot Out (Free The Children)
15) Morgan Heritage - Too Much Blood A Run (Free The Children)
16) Richie Spice - Tired A (Yellow Moon)
17) Anthony B - Trigger Happy Cowboy (Camp Fire)
18) Turbulence - Gun Brings Misery (Palm Of Gold)
19) Luciano - It A Fi Stop (Ffrench)
20) Jah Mali - Blood Speaks (Rising Sun)
21) Sugar Roy & Conrad Crystal - Tired Of It (Digital B)

LIST: BMC's 2007 Modern Roots 45s top 50

Another one of my older lists I found back on my harddrive: best 45s of 2007. Top 50 with the info as I wrote it in those days, just for fun. Check it out:


My personal 2007 45s top 50

The year is coming to an end, time to look back a bit. There haven’t been many dancehall / bashy riddims that did it for me in 2007, but I didn’t follow it very closely either (list anyone?). Some artists made important steps there this year though imo, especially Movado and Busy Signal. On the rootsy side of things for me numerous 45s with interesting riddims and tunes have been released, ranging from just nice to killers. Here’s a selection I made of 50 more rootsy tracks that I rate highly and still play regularly; roughly in order, but don’t take that too serious cause tomorrow it may differ again. Just my personal preference, no official thing or so, feel free to disagree and / or dislike.

1. Natty King – Real Herbalist (House Of Riddim)
2. Glen Washington – In The Distance (A-Lone – Dirty Dozen)
3. Ray Darwin – People’s Choice (Tad’s – officially released late december 2006 though)
4. Alborosie & Sizzla – Meditation (Forward)
5. Capleton – Prophet Rides Again (Ink A Link)
6. Pressure – Be Free (Don Corleon)
7. Tami Chynn – Over And Over Again (Fresh Ear – Guardian Angel)
8. Luciano – Every Where I Go (Broken Stick – Let Them Talk)
9. Natty King – Dem A Fight (Pleasure Beat – Majestic)
10. Alpheus – Ultimate (A-Lone – Dirty Dozen)
11. Richie Spice – The World Is A Cycle (Fresh Ear – Guardian Angel)
12. Capleton – No Fold Hand (Shall I – Meditation)
13. Burro Banton – Friday Dress (SWS – Crazy Night)
14. Shaggy – Move Hype (Big Yard – 007)
15. Million Stylez – More Life (Supersonic – Devil’s Angel)
16. Chezidek – Bad Out Deh (Irie Ites – Down In Jamaica)
17. Alborosie – Kingston Town (Forward)
18. Perfect – 30 Pieces (Irievibrations)
19. Taurus Riley – She Is Royal (Cannon)
20. I Wayne – More Herb (Yellow Moon – Dst)
21. Lutan Fyah – Hypocrits (Oneness – Oneness)
22. Da’Ville – Africa Is Calling (Pure Music – Serengeti)
23. Etana – Roots (Freemind)
24. Lutan Fyah – Red-Red (Al.Ta.Fa.An – Senior)
25. Lymie Murray – Fire Will Be Burning (Bay Rock – Bay Rock)
26. Glen Washington – Jah Jah Delivered Me (A-Lone – Family)
27. Taurus Riley – Back Biter (Don Corleon – Far Away)
28. Morgan Heritage – Too Much Blood A Run (Free The Children – Africa)
29. Natural Black – Free Your Mind (Total Satisfaction – Melody Life)
30. Burro Banton – MC Peggy Part 2 (One Love – Maria)
31. Da’Ville – In My Arms (Renaissance – Legal)
32. Jah Cure – Sticky (Danger Zone – Jamdown)
33. Maxie Priest & Richie Stephens – My Girl Dis (Joe Frasier – Full Attention)
34. Turbulence – Youths (Kickin – Rewind)
35. Alborosie & U-Roy – Precious (Forward)
36. Alaine – Sincerely (Don Corleon – Love Potion)
37. Cocoa Tea – Poverty (Minor 7 Flat 5 – Bodo)
38. Lukie D – Step Away (Badda)
39. Richie Spice – A No Me Dat (No Doubt – Eighty Three)
40. Sizzla – Sow More Love (Irie Ites – Rocking Time)
41. Pressure – Love & Affection (Don Corleon)
42. Jah Cure – To Your Arms Of Love (VP – Guardian Angel)
43. Edge Michael – Delilah (House Of Riddim)
44. Lutan Fyah – Can’t Stop The Fire (Bassrunner – Glorious)
45. Luciano – Strive (Mafia & Fluxy)
46. Pinchers – Slaughterer (Penthouse – M16)
47. Morgan Heritage & Busy Signal – Run Dem (Juke Boxx)
48. Frankie Paul – Love Somebody (Stone Love – Rocksteady)
49. Morgan Heritage – Guards Up (Maximum Sound – Black Board)
50. Doniki – Gully Bank (Gully Bank)

I didn’t get the chance yet to get Fat Eyes’ Midnight Hour or Joe Frasier’s Chi Chi Bud riddims released on 45 last week, so those tunes were not taken into account.

All in all even though I bought significantly less 45s this year, 2007 brought enough good reggae again to keep me entertained, just needed a bit more selectivity. For 2008 I hope for more bass and positivity and less autotune!

MIX: Unity Is The Key - a 2007/2008 modern roots 45s mix


Two months since my last mix, over 3 months since my last modern roots mix: just can't find the time to start recording and mixing these days. This'll probably get worse, since I've got very busy months ahead of me, so to make up for the long wait since the last one and the, likely, long wait before the next one here a longer than usual new modern roots 45s mix, clocking in at one full hour. Tracks are mainly 2008 releases, with a couple of 2007 tracks that I didn't use in a mix yet, but still wanted to include in one. Both Jamaican and European productions, ranging from sweet soft riddim like the Secrets to harder bassy riddims like the Conqueror. All officially released and taken from the 45s (no downloaded mp3s), so obviously not the latest hype-selection, but music that imo deserves to be heard. 2008 has been somewhat dissappointing when it comes to good roots riddims, but after some time there's always enough to get a nice mix together.
Just for the record, business as usual: no full tunes, shorter pieces mixed together with added soundsamples and average soundquality. For full tunes, in good quality without samples, go get 'm, all are officially released. Don't ask me for the full tunes, I will not upload 'm. Enjoy and drop me a comment if you've enjoyed this latest episode of BMC's Reggae Mixes.

MIX: Give Thanks For Life - 2007 - 2008 modern roots mix


New mix up of modern tunes. We're in may of 2008 already and I didn't make a mix containing JA tunes released this year yet, so it was time to change that. Here it is, 30 tracks, some from this year, some from last year, all from 7" except the Mary Jane riddim, which is taken from 10" singles. Usual things apply; no full tunes, shorter pieces mixed together at lower bitrate with added soundsamples. If you rate the tunes I'd encourage you to go out and get the tunes yourself to hear 'm in full, good quality and sample-free. A promotional thing this!
We have a nice mix of JA and European releases here with a variety of names, both veterans and newer vocalists. Two wicked Doniki's, a very underrated singer imo, old-school digital style riddims from Scotch Bonnet and Charlie's labels, Massive B's massive Kingdom riddim, big hits on the Rub A Dub riddim, wicked roots riddim called Dem A Run Away etc etc. Lots of niceness, roots stylee. Enjoy!

Comments will be appreciated.

Large up once again for all the support, especially to the group that keeps returning to my mixes, taking the time to leave comments or send an email of appreciation instead of just grabbing it . I don't care about the number of downloads, I do care about the nice comments of the people that enjoy the music with me.
Special shout-out this time to the Reggae Sundance Guestbook and its contributors for the support and interesting conversations.

MIX: Dub Along - a late 70s Black Ark selection


Double episode - foundation stylee! Lee 'Scratch' Perry, a crazy genius! There's lot to say on the man and his works, but many already did so much better than I possibly could so I wont try. Check for instance David Katz' very nice book People Funny Boy on the life of Perry and his musical legacy. This lenghty mix focusses on the later period of recording in Perry's Black Ark studio, mid to late 70s, my favorite period of Perry as producer. This ofcourse does not mean that his earlier work can be ignored. On the contrary, it is great, I just prefer this a bit better. This selection draws from various sources, artists and type of riddims, though all with that 'Black Ark sound'. By no means a 'best of', but mainly a selection of both common and less common tunes that I rate highly. I could easily make a few more episodes like this, there's too many big tunes, but I wont. Let this mix take you on a trip down memory-lane, introduce you to unknown tunes or maybe a bit of both with Lee 'Scratch' Perry at the controls! As always, not full tunes, pieces blended to almost an hour of roots from the Black Ark. Details of sources are given if you'd like to track down the tracks to hear 'm sample-free, in full and in good quality. 7" tracks are mostly from CD-R copies, I wish I owned the originals of those.

MIX: Ruling Sound - a mid-late 80s 45s mix inna digital stylee


After the succesfull first episode of a 80s-digital-stylee-45s-mix I did over 1,5 years ago, here finally is part 2! Twice as long, just as nice! The very nice response on the first one made we want to make a next episode for some time now and I had plenty of tunes to include, just didn't get to it until now. Variety of labels, artists and productions. Check out the wicked opening series of 'sound killing' tunes, the continuing of the Modern Girl riddim from part 1 with two other cuts on it here, a Sleng Teng segment includig no less than 5 tracks on the Harry J lick of the riddim, another Jazzbo produced combination of Horace Ferguson and U-Roy tunes on Ujama, the Agony riddim of Admiral Bailey's Big Belly Man included in part 1 here with three other cuts etc. etc. Some riddims more kinda semi-digital than pure digital, but all from the period 85 - 89 and all recorded from the 45s, no mp3s here. No full tunes as usual either, shorter pieces mixed together to one continuous mix of a little over 60 minutes and believe me, IT NICE! :-) The mentioned part 1 is still available too; mix called *** Ruff & Tuff *** , scroll down to hear that one!

MIX: Ruff & Tuff - a late 80s 45s mix inna digital stylee


With the introduction of the famous Sleng Teng riddim by Jammy$ in the mid 80s a new trend was set for digital reggae. The later 80s dancehall scene was ruled by digital riddims and gave way to numerous classics and sometimes nowadays higly sought after tunes. As one of the many interesting era's in Jamaican music I wanted to make a nice mix of it and here it is. I've recorded a bunch of my 45s from the period (i.e. late 80s) and mixed them together. Not the full tunes, parts of it that give a great idea of the tune itself. This mix has both classics and rather unknown tunes with a wicked Belly Man series, some nice Courtney Melody's, Pinchers', Robert French, a young Beenie Man, White Mice and much more. I've included some pics of the labels in the picture that comes with this episode. Enjoy!

MIX: Papa Tullo Rides The Rhythm


After having Nicodemus (2x) and Ranking Toyan in the mix with vocal companions and some dub versions, it's now time for a next deejay that was operating most actively in the same period. Centre of attention this time is PAPA TULLO, who later started calling himself Tulloch T when he did some work for amongst others Jammy$. I don't know much about this man, only that I usually enjoy his flow and style, what's most important. I don't know where he resides nowadays, but if I'm not mistaken he occassionally still voices a tune and performs, but it's not much. For now we're looking back to the period of the early 80s, in which Papa Tullo voiced plenty of tracks on known, but also lesser known riddims with lovely vocal companion tracks. Amongst others he had a number of his tunes released on 12" on the Negus Roots and Greensleeves labels. Here I've selected 14 vocal tracks, which get Tullo riding the rhythm next, sometimes followed by the version. Some of these come from vinyl copies, while other tunes are taken from CD's (official releases or CD-R's). The source of each is given below, so if you'd like to try and track a tune down you should have enough info to go by, though some of these are not easily available (while others can be found on more places than just the source given). As always, there's no full tunes here, it's shorter pieces mixed together to one continuous flow of niceness. :-) Please leave a comment when you've enjoyed the mix! Thanks.
