Marlon Asher x Lion Twin, Home Grown Mixtape: This one is a Trinidadian reggae affair straight. Another big combination from reggae staples Lion Twin at the boards this time alongside the original T&T ganja farmer Marlon Asher. Recorded soundsystem style, this one captures the energy of a live dance with Lion Twin selecting tunes with Marlon up front. We haven’t heard too much from Mr. Asher as of late but this mix delivers an hour of new roots music. Stream and download below
