DUBROOM MP3 REVIEW
WWW, December 2007 - "A Good Ska Is Hard To Beat", says Mick Sleeper. He's been "A Ska Man Longer Than A Reggae Man" which says some thing as well and not (just) his age!
Mick Sleeper knows his Ska as he knows his Reggae.
"Ska Boom!" is a very appropriate title of the 10th episode of his podcast, as it is much more than "just" another mix of pre-Reggae Jamaican Music. It truly is a "bomb selection" that doesn't only show where Reggae is coming from, it actually portrays the energy that came with music back in the 1960's as if it was played yesterday.
Surely, "Ska Boom!" is something you want to check out for more than the obvious -essential and historical- reasons. You will actually start to move and groove even when your grandmother was young around the time..
