Diseases Riddim Mix | Reggae Lover by Highlanda Sound | Episode 66

The Diseases riddim, which is sometimes referred to or known as the Golden Hen riddim is featured here.

I call it the Worries in the Dance Riddim, but the original version of the instrumental was used for the song entitled “Mad Mad Mad” produced in the 1960s by Coxsone Dodd for his Studio One label featuring Alton Ellis on the main vocals. Therefore the original name of this riddim is Mad Mad Mad.

This mix starts with Mad Mad Mad by Alton Ellis and goes all the way to Sizzla in the end. Thank you for listening to the #ReggaeLoverPodcast

Reggae Vault Classics 11 – Dennis Brown, Freddie McGregor and friends

Freddie McGregor

Freddie McGregor (via last.fm)

This is the latest episode of the syndicated Reggae Vault Classics podcast produced by Kahlil Wonda of Highlanda Sound for the week of March 23, 2009 featuring classic reggae music in a DJ mixed format with no talking.

Episode 11 is like a concert with Dennis Brown and Freddie McGregor headlining and sharing the stage. Those reggae giants sing 10 out of the 26 songs on the playlist. They invite a few other singers to come up and perform too including Gregory Isaacs, Sanchez, Lukie D, Thriller U, Garnett Silk, Leroy Smart, Linval Thompson, Wayne Wonder, and Half Pint. Deejay performers include Buju Banton, Merciless, and Simpleton. My favorite highlight from this show is the mix out of Sancho’s “Biltmore Ballroom” era smash hit, Chase Vampire, into Freddie McGregor’s Loving Pauper. The 6 selections that follow make you wanna grab a dance partner and take it to the floor for some wining and grinding (water pumping, cool and deadly, rent a tile, etc.)

Rare Gems Found In Reggae Vault

1

The lastest installment of Highlanda’s Reggae Vault Classics podcast starts off with singer/deejay Shinehead singing a cover of Michael Jackson’s Billie Jean over an instumental that has become known most commonly as the Billie Jean riddim.  Sanchez’s solid lover’s rock hit from the 1990s, My Sweet Lady, follows on the riddim with as a nice of a mix as  will hear.  At this point in the mix, if you don’t feel the warm embrace of the rub a dub bassline, you may want to upgrade the speaker system you are listening on.  Billie Jean rolls on with tunes by Yami Bolo, Garnett Silk, Sizzla, and Wayne Wonder before the Nitty Kutchie, Bounty Killer and Terror Fabulous provide a rudeboy finale.

The next tune is Train to Zion, performed by Linval Thompson on the Death in the Arena riddim and this is where I would say Highlanda begins to expose rare gems.  Following that gem is Tenor Saw/Nitty Gritty sound a like, King Kong with Trouble Again, one of his biggest tunes.  The more commercially known mid-90s version of this riddim, known as Champion of the Arena is next featuring just the Bounty Killer, Long or Tall, and then Garnett Silk’s Splashing Dashing.

Garnett’s silky smooth voice on Retreat Wicked Man is next and takes us further into the Vault as the following transition welcomes the voices of reggae’s Crown prince, Dennis Emmanual Brown alongside Junior Reid singing lyrics that are prominent even in today’s dancehall, “No Dance Nah Keep Again, a just modelling…”

The next mix which brings in a remix of Night Nurse featuring U-Roy, Dennis Brown, and Gregory Issacs in combination, is the only part of this episode that sounds a bit rushed –  I was really enjoying the D. Brown/Junior Reid.  This however more uptempo version of Gregory’s Night Nurse may not be familiar to many listeners so the tune  has some exclusivity value to it.  Not Because I Smile which is sung over an extremely vibesy version of the Rockfort Rock riddim makes it two Gregory Issacs’s in a row.  The transitions that follow include a Wayne Wonder and a Bounty Killer on the same riddim – Well Done!

One thing to note here is that not only are you hearing selections you may not have heard in years, but these classics are being played in the traditional Brooklyn inspired style of Highlanda’s selector Kahlil Wonda.  Big ups go to King Addies and Earthruler among others for the inspiration.  Reggae Vault Classics episode 4 ends off with three songs on the Shank I Sheck riddim, also from the 1990s, and as Sanchez fades out my only complaint is that the mix was too short.
