Never Get Weary 2015

I & I Never Get Weary 2015. Its been a few months since I put a fresh mix out as I've been preoccupied with the Kaleidoscope nights, among other things. This one's built around my sets there last weekend when we failed to get a live recording on the night. A multi-era collection, mixing up old with new and nuff between... Starts with rootsy selections before moving onto more upbeat reggae-dancehall vibes later. Plenty version excursions & nuff big tune.

Juggling the Bucket Bottom (Fine Style/Freedom Sounds/Irie Ites) with a deadly new cut from Mark Wonder's fine new LP for Nowtime Sound. Penthouse come strong again with updates of  El Shaddai, Culture's Natty Never Get Weary, Miss Wire Waist (Impact/Penthouse) and Horace Andy's Every Tongue Shall Tell featuring a notable return to the mic stand for the Lone Ranger! Digital B does a ruff new relick of the Dub Organizer played here alongside older cuts on Digital B, Upsetter, Impact & Jammys. Other riddim like the Herb Family (More Life), Love Me Forever/Hit The Road Jack (Big Youth/Juggling/Star Trail), Chi Chi Bud (Joe Frazier), Doctors Darling/Night Nurse (Germaican/Island), Just Another Girl (Virgin/Impact) and Kayla Bliss' brand new single Red Hott mix up with the Alton Ellis original Can I Change My Mind (Coxsone/XTM Nation). 
We revisit three tunes here that always go down very well in the dance - World Go Round by King Mas, Love Yourself by Mr Vegas and Angola by Jah Bouks. We end up dropping them almost every time we play out.

Continuous mix. 97 minutes 75 tracks. 

Donovan Germain & crew have hit top form once again especially after Exco Levi's astounding Country Man LP for them this year. Penthouse records have the best vibe right now & are thus heavily represented here. For that we make NO APOLOGY. Nuff respect to all.
