Turbulence - Higher Trod Mixtape 2007

The first of two Turbulence roots and reality mixtapes, charting the gifted singjay's career from 1998 to 2007. Emerging out of Phillip Burrell's Xterminator camp circia 1997-98 in the wake of Sizzla and Luciano, et al, Turbulence suffered under-exposure right into 2004, despite the release of several albums. Breakthrough was at last achieved with the -hit Notorious. Hits like Got The Love (with Sasha) & X-Girlfriend followed in 2006-07. 

New roots and one drop riddims predominate here with forays onto the dancehall also. Nuff lyrics. Collaborating artists include: The Higher Trod Family, Lutan Fyah, LMS, Sasha, Anthony B, Bushman, Luciano, Chezidek, Tafari, Perfect and Digital Ancient. Features a lNotorious megamix. Label like Xterminator, Silly Walks, Tad's, etc etc.

Continuous mix. 157 minutes.
