More evidence of the 2000Tone vibes in the air this summer, FADER just reviewed the Rudeboy Selections mix our doopses at Deadly Dragon Sound put down for the hip Manchester men’s shop called Oi Polloi a few months back. Get the full travel diary on DDS selector Scratch Famous’ UK trip to link with Oi Polloi here. Download the mix–which includes a raft of ska and rocksteady classics from Prince Buster, the Silvertones, Stranger Cole and their contemporaries here. Don’t sleep “Tribute to Nehru” from the Skatalites or “Rudeboy Prayer” from Alton Ellis and Bob Marley! And definitely don’t sleep the new Clarks originals and suede Playboy chukkas in stock at Oi Polloi. Kick up yuh foot, etc.
