Big Tunes w/ Undercover


A massive month for reggae fans - three (make that four) long play albums from the cream of the modern roots reggae crop. Chronixx delivered his debut LP with a slew of singles with some fresh soul/hip hop vibes to boot, some loved, some hated. For me maybe a few more big new hits would have sealed the deal. Second Samory I and Rory Stone Love released his debut album to much praise sticking true to the heavy roots sound abound. A bit same samey in parts and his voice wobbles in part, but the militancy is strong! Speaking of militant, non other than Jr Gong dropped his much awaited album and it doesn't dissapoint. As for the fourth album, that kudos goes to Mark Wonder riding some killer riddims, SOILD as a rock.
Riddim wise we also have some biggies too - a new one Upful is top notch, from Zincfence sideshoot Black African productions. On the 90s digital tip is Digital Salute, Far East, Digital Fashion and Darker Shades - all bouncing, grinding authentic digital roots that would slam any dancehall!
