    It's not traditional reggae by a long shot, nor even your average dancehall, but I love The Bug's work


    Pressure is a bit more dancehall, but with some seriously ragged and electronic beats. Some very energetic and intense ragga tracks with Daddy Freddy, Toastie Taylor, Rootsman & He-Man, and Wayne Lonesome, and some slow atmospheric dub tracks with Roger Robinson's dub poetry and Paul St. Hilaire (Tikiman)'s singing.


    However the real masterpiece is London Zoo:

    Obviously it's much more influenced by the grime and dubstep scenes (mainly the tracks with Killa P, Flowdan, and Warrior Queen), but it really emphasizes the dancehall/ragga roots of those genres while still keeping the aggressive fast-paced drums & ragga chants of grime and the subwoofer pummeling bass drops of dubstep. Also a few more traditional dancehall toasts and reggae crooning (the songs with Tippa Irie, Ricky Ranking and Roger Robinson) over dark riddims. I'm sure more than a few of you already know about this album since it got rave reviews and I'm sure even more of you are already familiar with "Skeng" and "Poison Dart," so I'll spare you that.

    Basically this stuff is the reason I'm looking for earlier (anything pre-dubstep/grime) that has toasting or ragga chants over dub production. I like the deep atmosphere of dub, but I'm not a huge fan of plain old reggae singing, and I love the vocals in dancehall and ragga, but I find a lot of dancehall albums to be too one-dimensional for me (even though Buju has some pretty consistent stuff).

    I've heard some of his stuff, and it's not too bad, but never got super into it. I also have checked out New Flesh for Old, Toastie Taylor's hip-hop group which has a similar vibe. Still, nothing too ground-breaking, even though Toastie is has one of the best rap/toasting voices I've ever heard. Dude needs to get on some serious shit (more Bug collabos please).

    That new marley documentary gave me a whole new appreciation for the dude. I think the dude was a genius now.

    Also i been playing a lot of ini kamoze, tosh and burning spear. I made an identical thread last year and i got some good music from it so thanks to those who helped me.
