Junior Delgado's Incredible Music

Junior Delgado's Incredible Music
RastFM #LoveReggaeMusic Show #57 22/09/18
Remembering the mighty, the one and only Jux Delgado. From his early sides for the likes of Ethnic Fight, Observer, Black Ark & Rupie Edwards, solo or with vocal groups Time Unlimited & the Heaven Singers, through the classic Rockers, DEB & Incredible Jux releases to his superb later works with Fashion and Adrien Sherwood of On-U Sound. 


 

Some serious dubs by Prince Jammy, Sly & Robbie, Augustus Pablo and Lee Perry plus a few deejay versions and a couple of duets. Essentially a roots reggae mix we also venture onto some of his biggest lovers and dancehall hits later on. Surprise crossover collaborations with Naked Funk, Sofa Surfers and the Jungle Brothers.

This ya one free from sirens, fog horns & other dangerous sonic interferance lol back2basics

I was privilaged to see Jux with Pablo at Leeds University on the Raggamuffin Year tour in '88 - one of the best nights ever! The place was ram and both artists were on fire as were the very youthful Yami Bolo & White Mice who opened the show.
 
Continuous mix. Total 3hrs
