Siamrootsical Roots & Culture Mix 2015. Fifth annual end-of-year new roots collection, bringing together some of the seasons bigger conscious releases. Strictly positive, ital roots selections a play... Exco levi broke new ground with his brilliant Country Man LP for Penthouse, as well as voicing high energy sides for several producers, while musical obeah man King Mas has really turned up the heat with a series of devastating reality songs - looking forward to a new LP from him. Micah Shemaiah also made waves with his deeply rooted Original Dread set for Decadent Records. All three artists feature heavily here. Protoje hit big with the excellent Ancient Future. Producers @Jamrockvybz put out some fine roots tunes in 2015 with Kazam Davis, Luciano, kIing ITal and Chezidek - check Marijuana: Real Green Gold.- the real Ganjaella... @nowtimesound created a finely textured modern roots soundtrack for Mark Wonder's Scrolls Of The Levite LP, for me the production of the year.
Longtime riddim mix it with some wicked new originals. Will Tee's rocking remake of the Shank I Sheck runs with the Dub Specialist cut (Studio 1) beautifully. The Green Lion Crew's Ganja Morning is a relick of Desi Roots' Weed Fields. Disobey (Rebelmadiaq) is reminiscent of the Promise Land. Junior Gong reissued the On The Corner with new vocals from Chronixx, Jesse Royal & Iba Mahr. The Gunshot is back with fresh cuts by Overstand & Flava McGregor. Penhouse revisit two classics - Since I Throw The Comb Away and El Shaddai. More excursions on the Hungry Dayz (LTL), The Empire (Riddim Wize), Freedom Fire (Independent Works) and the Go with Jah (Taitu).
Continuous mix. 79 minutes
