The Taxi Riddim featured in exclusive Dancehall foundation mix

1

The TAXI riddim has been around for a long time, and it will never leave the dancehall. This riddim is foundation!!

slyandrobbiepresenttaxi

I kicked off this special mix with the Sister Nancy hit entitled One Two which was released around 1976 by producer Winston Riley on the Techniques label. There are a few earlier versions of Taxi, but once Sly and Robbie cut their version, the riddim really took off.  You will hear 30 tracks in the mix, ranging from the 1980s to 2009.

This unique mix was suggested by a subscriber.  How does this compare to other Taxi riddim mixes you have heard?  Use #ReggaeLover across all social media when sharing the links or giving feedback, or email directly to ReggaeLoverPodcast@Gmail.com.
