Episode 43 - Original Foundation DJ Style

2015-02-27
Length: 1s

Hear some essential works from the 60s and 70s by the predecessors of rappers and today’s dancehall artists. Who was the first DJ (dancehall deejay)? This is often debated and I’m not going to get into the argument, but I personally credit U-Roy as the DJ daddy. If Daddy U-Roy wasn’t the 1st, then he certainly had the earliest and largest impact with toasting (rapping) over previously recorded instrumentals in the live dancehall setting. Coxsone Dodd, among many other innovations to his credit, pioneered the recording and production of DJs at Studio One. This mix merely touches upon some of this important dancehall history and I intend to thoroughly exhibit more of the talented foundation artists in future episodes of the Reggae Lover Podcast. There are too many DJs to name who rose to prominence by delivering rhymes over beats on the Jamaican music scene long before The Sugar Hill Gang's 'Rapper’s Delight' was released in 1979 as the first ever rap record.

Episode 41 - Luciano's Greatest Hits

2015-02-15
Length: 1s

We salute a living legend, reggae singer Luciano who has released 21 studio albums over the course of a brilliant 22 year career. One of my favorite artists and live performers, Luciano gained prominence around the world during the “Rastafari renaissance” in dancehall that took place in the mid-late 1990s. He established himself as a name synonymous with roots reggae and became one the sub-genre’s pillars. This 1 hour mix of 42 songs focuses heavily on Luciano's material from Where There Is Life, and Messenger, which were albums produced by Phillip "Fattis" Burrell and his Xterminator label. His latest album, The Qabalah Man, was released on the 29th of November 2013. Please support this phenomenally talented artist by buying his music/merchandise and patronizing his live concerts. You will not be disappointed.

Episode 39B - A Late Eighties Reggae Dream (1979 - 1991 Dancehall hits)

2015-01-18
Length: 49s

The episode commences with the Sly and Robbie produced version of the Randy Newman song, "Baltimore" from 1979 sung by The Tamlins. Courtney Melody and Dennis Brown follow with big tunes on the Baltimore Riddim before the hit from mighty King Jammys catalog, Dennis Brown's "The Exit.” Wayne Fire’s “Sexy Body” (1991) and “Come Down” by Super Cat from 1988 on the Wild Apache label launch the mix into the late 1980s. Listen for a Kenneth Hoo Kim produced version of the Hypocrite riddim released in 1984, and then almost every song after that point involves producers Bobby Digital, Steely and Clevie, and/or King Jammys. The highlight is the Duck aka Duck Dance riddim from 1988. This was a time when Jammy’s label usually had 10 out of the top 20 songs on Jamaica’s charts and Admiral Bailey was the dominant artist in dancehall and on stage shows.

Episode 36 - Stalag meets Sleng Teng

2014-12-27
Length: 34s

Show Notes It’s brings me great pleasure to release this episode which features two riddims that were suggested by my listeners: the Stalag version and the Sleng Teng rhythm. If you have ever been to a reggae dance or concert, you have definitely heard songs on one or both of these legendary riddim tracks which have had a dominating prominence in the dancehall for three decades. I selected this 22 song playlist out of the hundreds of tunes that have been recorded over these versions. The mix is comprised mostly of the original cuts produced by Winston “Techniques” Riley and Lloyd ‘King Jammy’ James. Please submit playlist suggestions and feedback to ReggaeLoverPodcast@gmail.com. History In Jamaica, the Stalag version (or Stalag riddim) is a popular reggae rhythm, which came to prominence in the 1970s. It was originally written and performed as "Stalag 17" (named after the 1953 war film) by Ansell Collins, and released by Winston Riley's Techniques record label in 1973. It was mainly used for dub instrumental versions, often b-sides of records. The rhythm also influenced early hip-hop, and can be discerned on Public Enemy's hit 'Don't Believe the Hype' as well as on Too Short's Blowjob Betty. Sleng Teng is the name given to the first fully computerized riddim in Jamaican music. The riddim, which was created by the collaboration between King Jammy and Wayne Smith, was titled "Under Mi Sleng Teng". Wayne Smith found the computerized sound in Noel Davey's keyboard, and together he and Davey arranged the riddim, slowed it down, matched it to Smith's key, and rehearsed on it with lyrics inspired by Barrington Levy's "Under Mi Sensi" and Yellowman's "Under me fat ting”, before taking it to Jammy's studio in late 1984. The riddim itself is apparently an attempt to recreate Eddie Cochran's 1959 rockabilly song "Somethin' Else." It is a pattern found in the Casio MT-40 home keyboard. After the riddim was brought to the studio and Jammy heard it, he then slowed it further and placed piano and a clap on it. Jammy recorded a number of other artists on the original backing track including Tenor Saw (with "Pumpkin Belly"), and Johnny Osbourne (with "Buddy Bye"). The tunes were first unleashed at a now legendary soundclash between Jammy's own sound system and Black Scorpio at Waltham Park Road on February 23, 1985.

Episode 30 - The Legendary TAXI Riddim

2014-11-09
Length: 39s

The TAXI riddim has been around for a long time, and it will never leave the dancehall. This riddim is foundation!! I kicked off this special mix with the Sister Nancy hit entitled One Two which was released around 1976 by producer Winston Riley on the Techniques label. There are a few earlier versions of Taxi, but once Sly and Robbie cut their version, the riddim really took off.  You will hear 30 tracks in the mix, ranging from the 1980s to 2009. This unique mix was suggested by a subscriber.  How does this compare to other Taxi riddim mixes you have heard?  Use #ReggaeLover across all social media when sharing the links or giving feedback, or email directly to ReggaeLoverPodcast@Gmail.com.

Episode 22 - Super Cat takes Center Stage

2014-09-08
Length: 53s

Super Cat is a deejay who achieved widespread popularity during the late 1980s and early 1990s dancehall movement. His nickname, "Wild Apache", was given to him by his mentor Early B. He is the elder brother of reggae artist Junior Cat and is considered one of the greatest deejays within the Jamaican dance-hall scene to date. This is not a commercial mix so if your'e looking for collabos with Kriss Kross, Biggie Smalls, and 112 recorded after Cat was signed to Columbia Records, you are in the wrong place.   This mix goes back to the roots in the Cockburn Pen / Seaview Gardens section of Kingston and tours through recordings produced by Steely & Clevie, King Jammy's, and his own Wild Apache Productions label.   About an hour in length, here is the #ReggaeLover tribute to Super Cat, a major figure in the positive-consciousness dancehall movement.  …

Episode 21 - Augustus Pablo, The Original Rocker

2014-09-01
Length: 49s

Augustus Pablo, was a Jamaican roots reggae and dub record producer, melodica player and keyboardist, active from the 1970s onwards. He popularized the use of an instrument called the melodica.In his role as musician and producer he has helped to shape the reggae music genre. Show Notes Vocalist Jacob Miller, who was heavily influenced by Pablo, starts this episode off with "Baby I Love You So" followed by the dub version of said tune entitled "King Tubby Meets Rockers Uptown."  Both works can be found on the 'Easy Skanking' album.  His album King Tubbys Meets Rockers Uptown (1976) is often regarded as one of the most important examples of dub.  Selections heard in this mix include quintessential tracks from classic albums 'Ital Dub,' 'East of the River Nile,' 'Java Java Dub,' and 'Valley Of Jehosaphat,' among others.   Also listen out for Wayne Wonder in dubplate style singing over the Java riddim for Highlanda Sound, and the voice of SuperPEC on his exclusive "Mommy Dearest," for which he chose the "East of River Nile" instrumental in tribute to Pablo.    …

Episode 20 - Lee 'Scratch' Perry

2014-08-25
Length: 59s

Welcome to Episode 20 of the Reggae Lover Podcast, my first "dubwise" edition. This mix was specially requested by Ras Jamal in Savannah, Georgia and features the musical productions and performances of Lee "Scratch" Perry exclusively.   One of the pioneers in the development of dub music and remixing in addition to numerous other innovations in production, Lee 'Scratch' Perry truly paved the way for the EDM, Hip-Hop, and Reggae movements of today. Show Notes.   We start off in the 60 - 70 BPM range with The Upsetters' Curly Dub and move into a couple different dub versions of Satisfy My Soul featuring Bob Marley and The Wailers.  The Upsetters' Super Ape is up next, leading into a "Vibrate On" medley.  Augustus Pablo, Max Romeo, Hugo Blackwood and Dr. Alimantado are featured on the riddim alongside Perry and The Upsetters.  A cool blend transitions from there into Bob Marley dub once again with "Live," a Lively Up Yourself dub version and then a Screw Face dub version entitled "Face Man." Junior Murvin can then be heard singing "Roots Train," followed by his massive hit tune "Police And Thieves."  I selected 3 tracks from Perry's "Arkology" box set on the same riddim.  The voices of Glen DaCosta and Jah Lion are featured in this set along with some wicked Saxophone and the masterful instrumentation of Lee Perry dubbing out on the board.   For the next few tracks I go into the Jungle Dub album, my favorite album of Perry's work.  The very heavy-weight Super Ape album, Ras Jamal's highest rated Scratch Perry album is also a focal point of this mix.  Other noteable selections served up are "Bad Walking" with Tommy McCook and "I Chase The Devil/Croaking Lizard" with Max Romeo and Prince Jazzbo.   Please email me (reggaeloverpodcast@gmail.com) if you want the full tracklist. My wish is that listeners will hear this mix and go looking for Lee Perry's music to purchase.  Dub music should be a part of every reggae lover's music collection.  …

2014-07-20
Length: 45s

This was a listener requested mix consisting of the biggest tracks from 4 singers: King Kong, Half Pint, Tenor Saw and Nitty Gritty. Ray said he thought these artists sound alike and that called for a mix with their hits. Their voices are easily distinguishable to my ear, but I agree that Tenor Saw and Nitty Gritty sang with a very similar and unique style. King Kong ended up copying that style of vocal delivery, but Half Pint carved out his own lane on the way to enormous success in the 1980s and 90s as a reggae crooner. RIP to Nitty Gritty and Tenor Saw whose lives were cut down way too early.  This is a dedication to you and every reggae lover.

Thanks for joining me on this Reggae Lover journey.  This is the 5th episode of the podcast in 3 weeks I'm truly thankful for the feedback coming. It has been very encouraging.  Each episode has a brief intro and outro, but I do not talk over the music, nor do I place sound effects over the mixes.  You can actually hear all the songs, the mixing and blending clearly as they are recorded live.   Within today's episode I feature the Super Star Riddim from 1989, the I Need You Riddim from 1987, a nice Delroy Wilson off the More Ideas Riddim (1988), the Enquirer Riddim from 1988 with Sanchez covering Bobby Brown's "My Prerogative," and finally ending off with Singing Melody and Shabba Ranks on the Gal Yu Look Good riddim.   I have many ideas and themes for upcoming episodes, some already recorded, and some still in my brain.  If you too have ideas of stuff you would like to hear me put down in a mix feel free to hit me up using the hash tag #ReggaeLover on Twitter, Facebook, Google +, Instagram, or Pinterest.   Also you can email me at ReggaeLoverPodcast@gmail.com.   Tracklist 1 Gregory Isaacs - Love Contract 2 Ken Booth - Call Me 3 Colin Roach - Oh Girls (Don't Be Cruel) 4 Thiller U - Have Fun 5 Brian and Tony Gold - Bullseye 6 Cocoa Tea, Home T and Shabba Ranks - Who She Love 7 Tiger - Boombastic 8 Cocoa Tea - Come Again 9 Al Campbell - Easy Loving 10 Chuck Turner - I Need You 11 Super Black - Got To Be Careful 12 Cornell Campbell - Mix Up Family 13 Pinchers - Champion Bubbler 14 Little John - Block Traffic 15 Delroy Wilson - Ease Up 16 Sanchez - My Perogative 17 Carl Meeks - Rawborn Rub A Dub 18 Ini Kamoze - Stress 19 Sugar Minott - Jah is the Way 20 Singing Melody - Hurry Back Home21 Shabba Ranks - Gal You Good…

Episode 3 - The Title and The Satta Riddim Excursion

2014-03-24
Length: 25s

This mix features the Title Riddim which was released in 1988.  The late, great singer Wayne Smith (yes he sang more than just Sleng Teng) delivers the blessing with "Jah Is Our Light" before the Soundbwoy Killing tunes start to flow.  Even if you don't know the artists singing at this point it matters not because the vibes are ever-present and the mixes come smoothly and quickly enough to hopefully put you in trance. Also featured in this episode is the Satta riddim, short for Satta Massagana. Satta Massagana is a roots reggae album released by The Abyssinians officially in 1976. It is widely considered The Abyssinians' crowning achievement and a classic roots reggae album. The title track "Satta Massagana" was a huge hit and has been versioned numerous times by both The Abyssinians and other artists since. It has even been adopted by some Rastafarian groups as a hymn used during services. The song, which translates from the Amharic language as "He Gave Praise", was originally recorded for Studio One in 1969, but the label's owner, Clement "Coxsone" Dodd declined to release it. Episode 3 ventures away from the more commercially popular and hit songs mixed in the first 2 Reggae Lover shows and the riddim driven nature of this mix also lends a different type of vibe.

Episode 2 - Greatest Lovers Rock Combination Anthems of the 90s

2014-03-24
Length: 22s

1   Yami Bolo and Merciless - Curly Locs  After a short intro from yours truly, this mix starts off with a 1996 hit, Yami Bolo and Merciless singing Curly Locs - a lovely representation of the Junior Byles original song.   2   Andrew Bell and Shelene Thomas - Can You Give Me What I Want? A big lover's tune that can be found on one of the VP Records "Strictly the Best" compilation albums from the 90s.  Andrew Bell is still performing today and goes by the name Joseph Quote (aka "Bello". 3   Sanchez and Beenie Man - Going Away Quite simply one of the biggest songs on the prolific "Love Bump" riddim.  The King of the Dancehall alongside Sanchez, one of Jamaica's most beloved voices. 4   Beres Hammond and Buju Banton - My Woman Now (Kahlil Wonda Extra Buju Mix) In the original version of this song, Buju takes too long to come in.  Here, I have taken care of that problem.  Let me know if you like the sound of this "Extra Buju Mix." 5   Cocoa Tea and Nadine Sutherland - Its Now or Never Many have forgotten that these two artists ever sang together on a track. The combo of silky smooth male and female vocals make this tune simply SWEET. 6   Cocoa Tea and Cutty Ranks - Waiting In Vain This is one song I just don't mind hearing at any time.  Done nicely by Cocoa and Cutty, this Bob Marley classic is bound to live forever 7   Beres Hammond and Buju Banton - Who Say Stop everything!  No keep going.  This is one of the top combinations in the business period. 8   Cocoa Tea and Buju Banton - Too Young I had a tough time selecting only one song from this riddim, but the production on this track is just perfect.  Forward, Rewind and pull up dat!!!   9   Cocoa Tea and Cutty Ranks - I'm Not A King Once again, hear back-to-back entries from the sweet voice of Cocoa Tea, this time accompanied by Cutty Ranks, who remained relevant in the 90s with solid lyrical delivery in this style.   10  Buju Banton and Wayne Wonder - Lonley The "Swing Easy" is always a riddim that one can I listen or skank to for an extended period.  In this selection, I am pulling out some of the best cuts to feature, and Buju Banton along with Wayne Wonder have a winner with "Lonely." 11  Chevelle Franklin and Lady G - The Right Slam (Kahlil Wonda Spicy Mix) As a second song on in a row on the "Swing Easy" riddim, this song features two of the finest ladies of the era (80s - 90s dancehall).  I have reworked the song here to bring Lady G in at the proper time, thus maintaining the vibes of the mix. 12  Twiggi and Buju Banton - I Want Your Love (Kahlil Wonda Extra Buju Mix) Buju is my artist, but here again the original press of this Penthouse Records Tempo riddim single makes you wait for a few verses to hear Gargamel come in.  I have made some adjustments to the arrangement so that the singer, Twiggi, goes back and forth with the DJ. This creates the ultimate in vibes.   13  Beres Hammond and Josey Wales - Free and Single (Sweetness) Beres is the living legend - what more can I say? With father Josey in combination on the Conversation riddim, this remix to "Sweetness" is dancehall solid gold.   Thank you for listening!  Requests? Feedback?

Episode 1 - 1990s Combinations

2014-03-23
Length: 24s

This mix consists strictly of my favorite type of song, the collabo aka combination (duet, trio, etc.).  There is usually more energy to a song whenever two or more artists decide to join forces on a single musical project and in reggae music, the excitement is heightened when singers team up with deejays.   The combinations selected here are all reality (culture) tunes from the 1990s decade and a listen will most likely improve your mood.  Yes, this compilation will appeal to the #ReggaeLover, fight depression, and promote virtuous ways.   The track list is below.  Requests?
