Shanty Sound – 50 Years – Foundation Reggae Mixtape

Science dropped by joppa AKA Arthur Jopparelli. Dec-15-2012

It was a while since our last reggae post, it’s time to heat up the dance with some fire. To celebrate Jamaica’s 50 years of independence once again we have our friend Shanty Sound, aka Bergamo-Rula, from Italy, mixing foundation reggae tunes for our enjoyment.

You got 50 minutes of classic gems from the 60′s, mixed live and direct from strictly 7 inch vinyls. Music from Jamaica’s two most respected and iconic labels Studio One and Treasure Isle, no need to say more. This mix flows great, you’ll find some stuff that you already love, and some stuff you might have slept on as well. It’s a long way back to the 60′s: when music lasts so long you can bet it’s well built. The musical foundation of Reggae is rock-solid, that’s why this genre is still so popular. And its story is fascinating, if you’re interested in the subject, i suggest you to read this book.

“You can’t find this stuff on bomboklaat i-tunes” says Shanty, so what are you waitin for? Listen and Download!
