Getting caught up early in the week can often be easier said than done. But done is where we are now, as I have the latest Sound Travels mixtape from this past Sunday. All reggae, all digital. Which is to say that all the grooves in the mix use some kind of groovebox, tape splice or program for rhythm. Early classics and new riddims from heavyweight soundclash champions and new-school maestros. Enjoy.
