Slowing It Down - 2009 slow and sweet roots style mix (JA)

Respect all massive and crew! Been some very slow months at BMC's Reggae Mixes. Family-life and work took up most of my time lately, so this last mix with tunes of the previous year took some time to finalize. But here it is, Slowing It Down, which as the title suggests, is a mix of JA productions inna slower, sweet rootsy style, perfect for the nice spring weather we're currently having on this side of the globe. A bit late to still come with a 2K9 mix, but on the other hand 2010 didn't bring that much official releases of modern roots tunes from the island yet (plenty on mp3, but I refer to the old-school vinyl release here). We've seen Don Corleon with the Feminine and Feeling riddims and No Doubt with the Classic riddim plus a few others from US or EU, but we'll save those for a next mix. For now we're officially closing the reggae year 2009 with the following easy going mix with the usual BMC-recipe: one continuous mix of original 45s (!), no full tunes, added sound samples and source-info given so you can go and track down these tunes yourself. Enjoy people! Drop a comment when you appreciate the efforts.
