MIX: Life Is The Greatest Gift - BMC's 2006 mix - part 3

A new mix of strictly 2006 releases on rootsy riddims. Not much to say other than there's some of my favourite tunes and riddims of the year in here (it's not a 'best of' though), amongst others from my favourite 'current' artist: Turbulence. For example his Live Up Right, Life Is The Greatest Gift and Guns Bring Misery are lovely examples that have the great combination of wicked riddim, flow and lyrics; the way I like it best! This ofcourse doesn't mean the rest is a different league or so, I love all these tunes and hope you will enjoy some or all of 'm too. If so, please let me know by placing a comment! Enjoy!
Many of these tunes are still available on 45 at various places on the net, so if you like what you hear, go get 'm! ;)
