Here’s another podcast/free download from Federation Sound outta NYC. #186 features the latest riddims and chunes from major artists like Aidonia, Leftside & Shaggy, Gappy Ranks, Mavado, and Vybez Kartel. They put these mixes together faster than I can repost them, which doesn’t make any sense at all, really.
Been meaning to post this chune from Protoje on The Message riddim for a while now. It’s another great Don Corleone production, and I think I read somewhere that he did this for Black History month so I’ve posted it just in time or quite late, depending if you are a cup-half-full or cup-half-empty type of person.
I’ve been falling behind on the Federation podcasts…#185 features Khago, Terro 3000, J.O.E., Elly Ess, Collie Buddz, Shaggy & Alaine, Eminem & Vybz Kartel, G Shock riddim (D&H/Subkonshus), Saudi Arabia Riddim (Pure Music), Island Vibes riddim (Chimney), Captain Riddim (Yard Vybz) and more.
I’m always happy to sit and stare at reggae album covers for a while so I enjoyed this post by my friends at Deadly Dragon Sound, which features artwork and information about Limonious and Jamaal Pete – two of Jamaica’s most prominent cover artist/designers from the ’80s.
Yet another reason by BBC > American TV. Here’s the full length from Reggae Britannia, a documentary which aired recently on BBC4. In case the title doesn’t make it clear, it’s about reggae in the UK. Via the good people at Nice Up!
