Wow, what a year for reggae. Well the return of it anyhow! Busy got jailed, and released, and still dropped the biggest tunes of the year! We have some big relicks, big roots and big dancehall outta both Europe and Jamaica.
We have the return of Penthouse and Digital B running some big riddims again! We see newcomers Exco Levi, Chronixx, Chan Dizzy, and Protoje cement their place at the top of the scene. We see Romain Virgo pretty much reach super stardom while staltwards Delly Ranx, Gentleman, Tarrus, Vybz, Milly, Konshens, Mr Williamz and Mr Vegas lead the pack again. We have producers Fenchie, Dre Skull, Don Corleon, Major Lazor, Head Concussion and Shane Brown ruling tings.

So as I do, I thought I would bang out a little mix to celebrate and promo the BIG night! So without further ado, we have 50 stone cold classics from the rocksteady and reggae eras, through to roots, dub, rub a dub and digital styles!
Check the if you are kicking around the shakey isles of Auckland, New Zealand. Dubovik vischa matematika. It's gonna be a dope night - in one room we have Channel One Soundsystem booming the Jafa rig supported by NZ's best roots and culture selectors, while the dancehall party hosted by Bigga Tingz will be popping shit off next door!!!!!! Alriiighty, some huuuge tunes here! A tonne of big new riddims and excellent full length reggae albums of late. Absolute legends of the reggae including Marcia Griffiths, U-Roy, Leonard Dillion, Max Romeo, Cocoa Tea, Vivian Jones, Yami Bolo, Jack Radics and The Pioneers are back in action as well as crews like Digital B, Penthouse and Jukeboxx getting back in the mix. THE REGGAE SOUND is well and truly back!
Part 1 Part 2 Rachaad - Love Love (Digital B) Raging Fyah - Cold World (Digital B) Tarrus Riley - Cold Girl U-Roy f/ Marcia Griffiths - Love Questions (Pray Fi Di People) U-Roy f/ Chezidek - Border Line (Pray Fi Di People) U-Roy f/ Horace Andy - Reason With Jah (Pray Fi Di People) Marcia Griffiths f/ Tanya Stephens - Want Love (Marcia Griffiths And Friends). I may as well wrap up the relick series with a little dancehall set! Well it's not strictly a dancehall mix as we have a bunch of rocksteady and reggae cuts turned into monster party bangers! Again, I could have gone deeper with all the early dancehall stuff but I'm only on this earth for so long!!!
