You may recall we put the universe up on Dread & Alive last year, when the rasta comic book released its first reggae soundtrack, Dread & Alive’s The Lost Tapes Volume 1, providing crucial theme music for the superhero inside each and every one of us. The comic and music compilation series is back with a new issue and a new partner, iFrogz, the swaggerific brand of audio accessories. You can hear the results on the music sampler from Volume 6 of The Lost Tapes made by ‘the wickedest lady deejay pon di road’ and longtime iFrogz fan, Tasha Rozez from Gunz N Rozez Sound. LargeUp got the premiere on the video for Tasha’s sampler which is below and includes each of the tracks on the Lost Tapes Volume 6 (although 3 and 4 are notably/curiously missing) including roots rock, Spanish reggae, soul and hiphop vibes from Bushman, Messenjah Selah, Rootz Underground and even Tasha Rozez herself–who shines with a throwback vibe on the tune “Foot Loose” with Toronto rapper Wio K. You can download the sampler here.
