Roots N Culture Mix 2014
December 31, 2014 05:54 AM PST
We revisit Royal Order's killer relick of the Channel One dancehall classic Worries in The Dance, renamed War is In The Dance, with cuts by Pressure, Bobby Hustle, Gappy Ranks and the amazing Stand For Something by Keida as well as the original Frankie P scorcher (Hitbound). Lustre Kings come with the dubstep-roots flavoured Junction. Equally rootsy is the Jah Warriah (Zion High) with conscious vocals from Jahdan & Pressure, Batch, Niyorah, Jah Mali and one by Lloyd Brown from last year's excellent Rootical album. Keyboards interplay nicely with live horns on the Reggae Root (Kheil Stone). Kabaka Pyramid & Chronixx team up with the Ghetto Blues. Duane Stephenson gets in the groove on Bunny Wailer/Roots Radics' Cool Runnings.
