Katchafire – Collie Herb Man (Reactor Dub Remix)

15 Apr

Here I have a New Zealand reggae group called Katchafire. The song Collie Herb Man is a very chill reggae song with lots of instrumental bits. The Reactor Dub Remix puts lots of improvising with percussion instruments and guitar riffs, over some vocals. Check this tune out!

Slightly Stoopid – Jimi

8 Apr

Slightly Stoopid is one of my favorite reggae groups from the U.S. for their style and incorporation of different instruments. They can play really good reggae rock to dub to acoustic rock. Jimi” is one of my favorites from their 2007 album Chroncitis. It starts out with a very cool acoustic intro, leading into some chill lyrics with horns and percussion bits joining in. Enjoy!

See-I – Dub Revolution (Omegaman Remix)

23 Jan

See-I is a reggae group from D.C. that just premiered their first album this last fall. Their new album artist album See-I was released under Fort Knox Recordings, which comes from the famous electronic group Fort Knox Five. The track I have today is a great remix of “Dub Revolution” by Omegaman. This is one of my favorite tunes from the album because of its classic dub feel. The combination of the bass line, horns, percussion and vocal samples just get you groovin in your seat. Be sure to check out the rest of their songs off the See-I Remixed album; they won’t disappoint! Enjoy!

Nas & Damian Marley – Friends

24 Oct

Two of my favorite types of music are hip-hop and reggae because they are so chill and have lots of meaning behind the music/lyrics. And today’s post morphs those two great genres together with some some amazing artists. Distant Relatives is a hip-hop/reggae album, collaborating Nas and Damian Marley (Bob Marley’s youngest son). The album is inspired by both musician’s ancestry in Africa and their relationship between each other. The album uses several African music samples, which makes this very authentic and real for the African listeners it is written about. To show their support for Africa, all the proceeds for this album will go towards the building of a school in Congo. So go support these great artists for their music and the good cause behind it! Enjoy!

Thievery Corporation – Blasting Through the City (Kelly Dean Dubstep Bootleg)

21 Aug

Sorry for the lack of posts lately. I’veĀ  been busy packing for home, Europe, and having too much fun. I’ll be back on the daily posting for now.

Today I have a super sick remix of one of my favorite artists, Thievery Corporation. It is done by a man named Kelly Dean who I don’t know much about, but killed it on this remix. Now I don’t like much dubstep at all, and almost wouldn’t call this a dubstep song – it’s more of real dub than anything. He took “Blasting Through the City” and added some bits here and there, and a lot more bass which I enjoy on this track because it has a reggae theme to it.

Make sure to crank this with some good bass and grab the free download on the player below! Enjoy!

Burning Spear – Play Jerry

24 Jul

Burning Spear is as good as it gets when it comes to roots reggae. He has been making reggae music since 1969 and has become quite the legend for his music and Rastafari messages. Bob Marley actually helped him get his music career started and had a big influence on him.

The tune I have here, “Play Jerry”, was written in honor of Jerry Garcia from the Grateful Dead, and has lyrics mentioning the Grateful Dead jamming, and for Jerry to play his guitar. It is taken from their (A)live in Concert 97 album, which is a VERY good one. I suggest to check out the rest of the album if you like some good, live reggae. Enjoy!
