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.

As soon as time allows, I will upload the mix. This will take some time however, at the moment I have other priorities with the birth of my daughter a couple of days ago. So for the coming time, the mixes and site wont get much attention.

Thanks for the interest in the mixes. Soon come.
