MP3 Podcast: Pressure Drop, A Jamaican Reggae Excursion selected by Andrew Bauer


WWW, September 2007 - This well balanced 25 track selection shows just how diverse Reggae Music can be, even when it's obvous theme is 1970's Jamaican Rockers and Early Rub a Dub.

The balance is between the known and the unkown. It is between various studio's. It is between various styles. It is between various disciplines, and even locations.

The bulk of the 25 tracks are Jamaican productions, the rest can be counted on the fingers of one hand and you don't even need them all for that. We'll go to the UK for a nice Aswad DUB mixed by the mighty JAH Shaka, we'll visit Bullwackies: the first Reggae Studio to be built in the USA.

Scientist leads the way with a mighty Michael Prophet Dub. King Tubby is there, too, obviously, because he is the godfather of DUB. Ofcourse, the selection presents a wide variety of styles and engineers within the Disciple of Dub.

Horace Andy and Barrington Levy, Junior Murvin and Naggo Morris. The singers are there, too. Just like vocal groups such as The Congo's and The Heptones. There could have been just a little bit more DJ-ing, though...
