False Alarm - a 2011 Roots & Culture Mix

Roots time again at BMC's Reggae Blog. Modern roots that is, 2011 stylee. For this one I picked the more roots sounding riddims over the sweet & mellow ones you hear so often these days. That last category will be subject of a new mix following soon I hope, this one has a more rootsier sound to it so might (!) please those not interested in the soft side of modern reggae more. Some JA productions, some EU, variety of artists and mixed in the usual BMC style: no full tunes, sound samples here and there, one continuous cd-length mix in the old-school mixtape tradition. The whole excursion is closed with a special message by Junie Ranks saying:

BRING BACK DI LOVE INNA DI DANCEHALL!

Too true. Wait for the final track in the mix.

Enjoy!

Thanks for the awesome tunes and vibes bro.
Is this going up on the podcast, or should I just download into my playlist?

BMC said...

Thanks a lot for the comment, Jim! Nice one. Eventually it will get on podomatic, but I'm always out of bandwidth there, so will have to wait for the reset and then act fast.
It's better anyway to get it here: quality is much higher than on podomatic, so better sound.

Thanks again.
