Reggae Vault Classics 12 – The 1980s through 2000s and back


This is an episode of the syndicated Reggae Vault Classics podcast produced by Kahlil Wonda of Highlanda Sound featuring classic reggae music in a DJ mixed format with no talking.

The mix starts out in the 1980s digital age with the legendary Tempo riddim and Anthoy Red Rose’s hit from King Jammy‘s with the same title (Tempo). Jr Reid, Pad Anthony and Nicodemus follow and then a few 1990s versions of the Tempo riddim are featured with Junior TuckerGarnett Silk, Buju Banton, Capleton, and Merciless.

During the next 15 minutes or so, you will hear primarily conscious reggae from the 90s and early 2000s. Highlights include 5 Lucianos in a row, early Jah Cure and early Sizzla, plus Leroy Gibbons singing Dennis Brown‘s early Studio One classic on the Babatunde riddim, Created By The Father.

If you are not familiar with Freddie McGregor‘s music, definitely study Reggae Vault Classics episodes 11 and 12 for some classic Freddie featured in these mixes. The finale is in the lover’s mood with Beres Hammond, Jack Radicks by request, and Sanchez.
