Dic 29 2009, 1:08 di peticA couple of weeks ago I was at a birthday party, and when some reggae was playing a friend of mine remarked that she liked it. Then I offered to compile a cd-ful of tracks in this genre, so as to give her an idea of what this music is about.
The result is available for all to take: you can find the link at the end of the journal entry.
First I thought I would just pick a few reggae favourites and be done with it - as I had started a "favourite" folder, this wouldn't have been difficult. This folder already contained some rocksteady tracks as well, so I decided to broaden the spectrum, and try to introduce my friend to the development of the various genres in a chronological order.
Now, I do not in any way pretend to be an expert of Jamaican music; let's just say that this compilation is as much a collection of my favourites as an introduction to Jamaican music. I'm sure many important artists/songs of each genre are not featured on the cd, yet I tried to bear in mind who were the greatest.

We can see pretty much of his underground taste and dj skills in "The Dirtchamber Sessions Volume One".
But let's go back in the days!
Do you remember the psycho stoned chorus of Out of Space from Prodigy's album Experience?
It's a sample from a classic reggae hits named Chase the Devil by Max Romeo & The Upsetters

As I am trying to extent my collection, any recommendations would be grateful.
Please: nothing too obscure otherwise i'll find it difficult to find.
