Sweet Jamaica - A 2010 Roots & Culture Mix

With 2011 almost two months on its way, the roots & culture releases from 2010 were still waiting to get the BMC treatment to end up with at least one modern roots mix of the year. Due to various reasons (no bad things!) I rarely have time left lately to start mixing and / or check tunes, so I'm behind my schedule of previous years. Ah so it go, and so it will probably stay, but the music still nice, whether you hear it in 2010 or 2011, right? So, here's a selection of roots & culture tunes from JA and other parts of the world inna JA style (rootsy, mainly JA vocalists, JA tradition). Mix called Sweet Jamaica and includes no less than three tunes with that title from the past year. Spring is in the air, what is reflected in the start of this mix: happy feel good stylee! The mix has a Bunny Lee segment for the old-style lovers too; both Maximum Sound and John John updated 70s Bunny Lee riddims with new vocals from a variety of artists. Check it out. For the vinyl collectors, some of these did see release on vinyl (yes, the format is still alive and kicking!), those that did have a ' * ' behind the title of the riddim. Nuff said, mix in the usual BMC style (no full tunes, added sound effects etc.), get it while you can!

Drop a comment if you enjoyed the mix. It takes time and effort to make it, so some sort of 'thank you' is appreciated when you do take and rate it.
