January 26, 2015

Words by Deejay Theory


We’re going heavy on the roots this week at #MixtapeMondays with a selection of positivity from 3 Jamaican selectors. Nice and easy vibes from the foundation to the current. Catch a fire below

DJ Roy, Ragga Ragga: Jamaica’s own DJ Roy always stays active with the mixtapes and has a nice new reggae mix on deck this week to set things off. Rinsing many of the one drop and culture tunes that are currently making their rounds on the island including some of our favorites songs of 2014, this tape should do the trick if you’re looking for a quick new roots ting. S/O to the kinda random Radio Lily collage on the cover as well. Stream and download below, grab the tracked version here

DJ Tall Up, ReggaePhilic Mixtape: Modern conscious reggae music is alive and well and once again we head direct to Jamaica and connect with MoBay’s DJ Tall Up for the Monday meds. Upful selections from start to finish from some of roots reggae’s leading voices of today paired with some inspiration from years past. Stream and download below, tracklist here

Corey Chase, Inna Roots Stylee: Our bredda Corey Chase also repping Jamaica by way of Miami adds some vintage fuel to the fire with some essential early roots, rockers and rub a dub joints. The backbone of contemporary reggae right here, just press play and let the music do its thing wherever you may be. For best results consult your local caregiver and let one bubble.
