08-31-2005, 06:22 PM
do you guys listen to jungle ? reggae over drum 'n' bass, now that shit is banging!!!!

capleton and sizzla are my favorites...

you really need to listen to:

pump up her pum pum (sizzla starts freaking at the end !!!)
the vibes (capleton and sizzla, more of a hiphop vibe to it!)


I also like it when they spit over hiphop beats...

capleton - blast dem (over snoop's drop it like it's hot)
sizzla - get to the point (together wit IMMORTAL TECHNIQUE over fat joe's lean back)

i only have some songs, no albums or such...

peace!

Im well into Damian Marleys "Half way tree". Sizzlas "Bobo Ashanti" is cool to chill to. N I like pretty much all reggae wit a bit of ruffness. Bounty Killers the shit man. "Fifth Element" got that track "Look" on the end as a bonus which was banned in Jamaica.

08-31-2005, 06:56 PM
You mentioned alot of good ones......here are some that are great that you dont have

BUJU BANTON - INNA HEIGHTS (almost as good as the classic TIL SHIOLH)
SIZZLA - BEST OF SIZZLA THE STORY CONTINUES (2cd) (great compilation)
SIZZLA - ROYAL SON OF ETHIOPIA (these tracks are not on Best of)
BOB MARLEY - AFRICAN HERBSMAN (older BOB recordings with LEE SCRATCH PERRY)
BOB MARLEY - GOLD (2cd) (best of the BOB Best of's compilations)
CAPLETON - MORE FIRE

Well if its roots you want, you're not the only guy. I never listen to other reggae other than Prince Far I (Micheal Williams III).
Used to listen to Burning Spear, I Jah Man, I Jah Son, Black Uhuru, Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer and Bob Marley. But that was during the mid 90's, then i heard Prince Far I in 1996, since then i haven't listened to any other reggae musician.

Burning Spear - get Mek We Dweet, Fit Of The Fittest
Isreal Vibration

Peace
PS: go to www.princefari.com (http://www.princefari.com) , and go to the discography, then albums- theres's the list just select any there are the Dub and Original tracks (RIP - Prince Far I)

i like mixing jamrock instrumental with acapellas from
fugees
biggie
smiff n wessun
for some odd reason masta killah acapella sounds good
i tried to mix some wu acapellas and masta killah sounds good for some odd reason

i like mixing puns acapellas on reggaetron instrumentals

Get yourself some oldschool Jamaican joints like Lee Scratch Perry, King Tubby, Jimmy Cliff
In Aotearoa (NZ) where I'm from theres a big reggae/dub scene...

peep this link http://www.smokecds.com/cd/36218?source=smh02Dec2004 for a compilation album of Aotearoa Dub/ Reggae called Conscious Roots.

Look for the links to albums by Fat Freddys Drop, Cornerstone Roots, Salmonella Dub , Trinity Roots, Katchafire, The Black Seeds
