Reggae addict.I started with roots music from the 70's, then DJ's style. But my favorite period in reggae is the 80's with Rub a Dub style and the rise of dancehall music with King Jammy. Now, I also appreciate UK Dub, Jungle or Dubstep.

Digikiller 12" Repress on 14 Karat Label

A repress on a 12" format is always good news, especially when it's on the Dub Organizer Riddim. After the fantastic reussie of Phillip Myer - Ghetto Struggle, Digikiller strikes again with this digital cut of the Dub Organizer Riddim. The whole serie was produced in the 80's by Channel One and voiced in New York by Mikey Jarret. 5 Vocals on two 12
Focus on Heavenless Riddim

Focus on Heavenless Riddim

Heavenless riddim is my favorite riddim because it has a very long history and its evolution follows every reggae fashion since 1970. The original version is an instrumental track composed by Don Drummond for Studio One. This version is amazing, 6 minutes long, with horns and this wonderfull bassline. It seems like Don Drummond already knew it woul

The latest repress (April 2010) is about the Rough Wine Riddim. First
War Series - Reggae-Dubstep Remixes

War Series - Reggae-Dubstep Remixes

I recently discovered the War Series in a vinyl shop in Paris, which is specialised in all kind of electronic music. I was searching for reggae-dubstep, when I saw a white label 12" with Zion Gate War Series 13 written on it. The tune was exactly what I was looking for :a roots riddim (with horns !!!), nice vocals and a shy dupstep bass grooving li

Bunny Wailer and Raggasonic at Garance Reggae in Bagnols

That's wright, the original Bunny Wailer is coming to Bagnols at the end of July. He already came in 2006 for the last editon of the festival. This year, Garance Reggae Festival will be huge with other reggae legends like John Holt (1st venue in France) or Third World. Raggasonic will also be there. In my opinion, they are still the best ragga/digi
Garance Reggae Festival Bagnols sur Cèze

Garance Reggae Festival Bagnols sur Cèze

First of all,a little bit of history about past reggae events in Bagnols. In 2005, Ja'Sound Festival moved from Lezan to Bagnols-sur-Cèze in South of France, close to Avignon. First Edition in 2005 was just amazing : Yabby You and Trinity, Twinkle Brothers, Black Uhuru, Midnite, Groundation, Richie Spice.... And you could find in the sound sytem a

Unity Sounds - UK's Digital at its peak

Unity Sounds was in the 80's one the of the biggest sound system in England with Saxon and Jah Tubby's. At this time Unity was directly connected with Jammy's and Striker Lee : Unity would get exclusive dubplates to play in London and Jamaicans producers would get direct feedback on what was happening on the dance floor. I discovered Unity through

Digital & Rub a Dub mix by Koffi Dread inna Dublin

Koffi Dread is a very good friend and we are playing live together since last year. Although we love roots reggae and dub from the 70's, when we play live, our selections are mainly rub a dub and early dancehall. Here the tracklist is obviously in an 80's mood: Little John - Tear Down The Dancehall - Wackies 12" Sugar Minott - Informer - Wackies 12
Tonight Riddim -

Tonight Riddim -

Tonight riddim has been sampled to death from1967 untill today, from rocksteady to dancehall music. What I like in this riddim is the melancoly you can feel in almost every tune. The orginal tune is Tonight by Keith & Tex produced by Derrick "the Charriot" Harriot in 1967 at the start of the rocksteady explosion in the second part of the 60's. Keit
Maffi Label - Digital Reggae inna Danish Style

Maffi Label - Digital Reggae inna Danish Style

Maffi are digital riddim producer, its 2 members, Moog & Junior, are based in Copenhagen, Denmark. Maffi is also a label since they teamed up with their german friends of Jahtari. Maffi's sound is a combination of 8-bit sounds, cheap synth and heavyweight bass: the perfect way to resuscitate Jammy's digital sound of the 80's. Many singers have coll
