Step Out And Dance - 2012/13 Roots & Culture Mix

Gimme Likkle One Drop as the man Tarrus Riley sings on the Tropical Escape riddim. Well, ok, here you go! New roots & culture mix by BMC, over 79 minutes with riddims and tracks from 2012 and 2013. Lotsa (but not only) JA productions this time and above all lotsa good music! Selection solely based on what I rate for whatever reason, not the charts! Noticable how many artists in their lyrics express their hope for a change of musical and/or lyrical content in the scene, let's see where it goes from here. Above all these are 79+ minutes that show that reggae is alive and kicking in 2013! Very nice riddims, excellent vocal deliveries from upcoming stars like Chronixx and Exco Levi to a great lovers tune by dancehall star Mavado to the always impressive Tarrus Riley and I can go on. Check out all artists and labels (in brackets in the tracklist below), there's usually more where this came from. Mix is in the usual BMC style: whole heap of different artists and styles, no full tunes, (very) few sound samples, one continuous cd-length mix in the old-school mixtape tradition. What can I say? I'm rocking to it, hope you too, so Step Out And Dance!
