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

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