Stats for this track
I had been wanting to record a reggae/dancehall mix all Summer, but I got way too busy running around NY playing. Then, my crate of potential songs got too big. Plus I figured some people dig roots and some like dancehall. There are clearly people who don't don't dig both at the same time. Didn't want to harsh anyones vibe, hence Vol.1 first. When I describe this mix, I had been using the terms "weird reggae" & "non-traditional".
However, the word "weird" is commonly perceived as derogatory. So, I hopped on good ol' thesaurus.com for synonyms. One, of which is the word "magic". So, this is a mix of MAGICAL REGGAE TUNES. Ha ha ha. Which means, songs on here are kinda reggae or are remixed in a reggae style or embody some roots vibe, without being the cliche songs that everyone and their brother always play. I aimed to surprise and put songs on that are un-expected. If you are still getting to know me, I'll give you a hint.. I love playing out of left field. That, and challenging & delighting listeners with things they probably have not heard before.
ps. don't get mad 'that song' is on there. it's probably the best remix you've heard of it ever. so, shush.
pss. ping the tracks you like best :D
