3. Yaadcore, Reggae Aroma Vol.3

yaadcore-reggae-aroma-ital-is-vital

Roots reggae music is standing as firm as ever in Jamaica, and Yaadcore is on the front lines of the movement, via his steady radio flow on Jamaica’s Hot 102 FM, weekly Dubwise Jamaica sessions, backing Protoje on world tours, and crucial mixes such as his Reggae Aroma series. I know for a fact that Yaadcore stands behind each tune he selects through and through, and this conscious approach is translated through the music every time.

Inspired (and starting off with) Horace Andy’s classic, #ItalisVital kicked off 2014 with all the necessary one drop and culture, while going heavy on the dubplates and specials from Protoje, Kabaka Pyramid, Keida, Jesse Royal, Tarrus Riley, Pressure, Jah Cure and many more.
