LoveReggaeMusic Episode 4 - 27 May 2017
I've dusted off my 1st 2 C90 mix tape attempts from back in 1985. We revisit those vibes in episode 4. Basically an early - mid 80s roots & pre digital dancehall selection of JA & UK productions. The contentious idea that reggae died with Bob is thrown on its head as this was a creative, vibrant era in reggae music. Dancehall riddims sat easily alongside rootsier material prior to the rise of the Casio-built tune.
