A lil bit of reggae there at the end of the weekend here at 88nine on the Sound Travels mixtape. I know I'm a hopeless reggae lover. In fact, I make a reggae mix for the radio at least three times a year and summer is the one where it probly makes the most sense. So I figured with most of the summer already in the books, it was about time to get down to business. This was that Sunday.
Probly the most notable cuts in this mix of mostly Jamaican material, was the prominence of new Brazilian reggae from bands I didn't even know existed before this year. Groups like Soraia Drummond, Digitadubs and Dub2Brazil have been a breath of fresh air for me. I also dropped the very new and yet unavailable jint from ex-Drum & Bass artist Shy FX, the cut that's floating around the cloud is called "Soon Come" and has been a hit with me. But the mix was hella fun to make and I have it here as promised...
