Augustus Pablo Rockers All-Stars Far East Selection

ROCKERS ALL-STARS FAR EAST SELECTION
AUGUSTUS PABLO PRODUCTIONS 70s & 80s
RastFM #LoveReggaeMusic Show 35 - 17/02/2018
Recreating the superb Japanese C90 mixtape I bought in Nagasaki 1994 - Rockers University Mix. All the tunes off that mix are here plus much more....
Deep meditations...



Mighty riddim like the El Rockers, King Tubby Meets The Rockers Uptown, Answer, Black Gun aka Keep On Knocking, Drum Song, Run Revolution A Come, False Rasta aka Hungry Town Skank and Away With Your Fussing & Fighting.

Junior Delgado's crucial Raggamuffin Year and Yami Bolo's cut of Door Peep Shall Not Enter are exceptional as are Horace Andy's Youths Of Today and Earl Sixteen's Changing World. Can't Keep A Good Man Down by The Immortals is one of my favorite ever roots tunes

Ras Xtr3me Video Pack

Presenting RAS XTR3ME...
In case u neva know him already, vocalist and drummer Ras Xtr3me is a countryman from St. Catherine, Jamaica who's been making waves over the past 2 or 3 years since his breakthrough single SHAAT LOCKS.. A keen farmer and italist, Xtr3me has increasingly expessed these sentiments in all his music, calling for a return to a more natural, balanced, healthier, blessed lifestyle and a higher consciousness. His songs also carry a strong message of hope through adversity.  

“I’ve always strive to do music about reality even before my mind was open to the serious issue we face in the world, the more socially conscious I got the more socially conscious my music gets also Farming and chanting and living natural adds to the drive and allow me to do it without fear or doubt”


Here's a selection of videos, including latest single - title track from the  
SHE NEED ROOTS EP Big tings to come from the countryman in 2018!
more life, more roots...











“I know better so I do better. Ras Xtr3me is all about positive Vibes and conscious uplifting, I’m a person that seek the true and the right I believe in finding the solution instead of dwelling on the problem, I am what I am and I strive to be the best me I can be”‎
