There's like 100 irie songs on this one epic page! Here's some more to nice up your week!
brings back simple times for me
Never heard of Reggae Cowboys? Well you have now!
more sleng teng fi you, sing along if you can
always gotta include female DJ
semi dub, semi drum & bass, all good
picked up this CD in 1997
Oh in that case, PSA: see that "real music 432 Hz" label? that means you inadvertently posted a version of the track that is about 2% pitched down. In music C4 is defined as 440 Hz but there are some people who believe that it's supposed to be 432Hz and that sounds much better. You be the judge:Never heard of it, sorry. I just know good music when I hear it.
How could I forget Alpha Blondie? I work in an assisted-living home for people with psychiatric problems, and one of my clients has me play "Jerusalem here I am" for him at least once a month.There's like 100 irie songs on this one epic page! Here's some more to nice up your week!

Now I've really heard it all LOLNever heard of Reggae Cowboys? Well you have now!
This is probably going to do more to spread the word of Jah than anything else on this pagealways gotta include female DJ
a bit different
<3 reggae. I couldn’t surf for shit but growing up in daytona it was surfing and sublime, blunts and bob Marley (I suck at surfing and think blunts are a waste of weed tho ).
Discovered Wookiefoot recently. They are part reggae, part folk, part hip hop, part funk and more. They got a little bit of everything but there over all tone is peace, love, DOPE! Check it out, good shit
This one is great, love the staccato beatI love reggae cuz it's so damn soulful. Here's some rastas who reach waaaaay down deep into their souls ...
This one is my favourite, great groove and harmonizing vocals
never knew Rihanna had a reggae background, great song!I thought Rihanna was gonna be the next great pure reggae artist of the decade/century when she first came out. Close enough!
you clearly know a lot more than me about classic reggae tracks so the best I can do for you is probably prop our local Amsterdam sound system King Shiloh who probably has one of the best collections of reggae vinyl this side of the Atlantic, or as the blurb reads "The Netherlands’ King Shiloh sound have a reputation as one of the heaviest roots and dub rigs in the world. Formed in Amsterdam in 1991, operator Bredda Neil and emcee Ras Lion have shaken up every corner of the globe with their hefty bottomless basslines and cultural lyrics. The Dub Academy will be the scene of some powerful yet cleansing vibrations when King Shiloh spread their teachings to willing students."
Yeah there's a ton of King Shiloh stuff on Youtube, this one looks a bit sad (I guess they got a morning slot at Dekmantel, it's more of an electronic festival) but I picked this one because in the other ones Bredda Neill talks over the music in a slightly cringe-inducing Dutch accent LOL.At first I thought all that smoke was coming from ganja! Great rootsy mix!
great picks to cause some buzz (sorry terrible dad joke)Reminds me of a lesser known band Killer Bees...
this one somehow brings back my youthful love of cypress hill, I think it's the music/productionWe're gonna give you some more reggae infused hip hop, tracks you may not have heard of before...
Try getting this one out of your head after you listen:
What better way to combat fear than to spread Jah love to Jah people with Jah music?A lot of fear vibes being pushed out these days. Just remember: much as they wish they could, those guys can't stop the time (and they never will). Wishing everyone here an excellent day!
A new challenger arrives! These two jazzy mixes are really great, ultra easy vibes and very musical. The rock one I found a bit harder to get into, but I can recommend the following album if you're looking for an ace mix of dub and heavy guitars:Thought I'd post these as they're on one of my Youtube playlists, they're a little different but I quite like them. They have reggae in them but they're mixed with other genres; the first two are jazz and the third with rock. Perhaps someone else might like them.
Sublime! 'What I got' is definitely in my all time chillest tracks top 100, but never listened to much other stuff by them. Great pick, thanks for the contribution.This song makes the world feel alright.

Hey this second track is great, got it stuck in my head. But the first one shows up as "not available" over here (Netherlands)Slightly Stoopid is pretty chill
Yeah back when I was younger that album was hot shit but it's like 25? years old now so I thought I'd throw it out there. Check out the other recommendation in the post too (Fully Bearded), could be up your alley if you like a different spin on thingsGlad you liked them. I already have Massive Attack's music but thank you for the recommendation.
I have said on this very page that I had seen it all now, but boy was I wrong. It's actually... not terrible, LOLI didn't see these posted here yet. Eddie Murphy dabbled in a bit of reggae.
Edit: 2nd video, good God that female backing vocalist in the middle is stunning.
The top link is doesn't work in 'my region' (the netherlands) but I had to smile with nostalgia at the second track, it just oozes the 90ies out of every pore, the whole R&B production...
I enjoyed the Mad Lion tracks but I'm not super into hip hop in general so my attention waned a little here...
...but I'm glad I stuck with it because I love this track, and I haven't heard it in YEARS. Thanks!
Here's my favorite hiphop/reggae collab (it's also a pretty good track for the current moment) and Old Retro this is definitely my "such is life" track
also wanna drop this Dub FX track, I never heard of this rapper Chali 2NA before but I love his flow and lyrics on this track plus now I know what it would be like if neill degrasse tyson were my crazy rapping uncle
hmmm, sure I guess there is trite, lowest-common-denominator aplenty...Mmm, feel like reggae has stagnated. I haven’t liked any new artists in a long time. Barrington, Jimmy Cliff and Bob are all I really fucked with and I can only listen to them so much. I also can’t stand the slack jawed, yah mon image of reggae in the west. It’s kind of been co-opted in to 420 culture where despite using cannabis I am repulsed by it.
Love the beat and the backing track on this, sounds fresh. The vocals I'm a bit iffy on, maybe slightly too slick for my tastes but that's very subjectivewasnt a big fan of the new sublime w rome album, but this song was actauly pretty decent. earned a spot in my regular rotation
Great contribution, vocals have a soul vibe and it's also pretty ambitious on the compositional front (6:12) but they pull it off nicelyMy good friends have a reggae band named Mozaiq their debut album always hits right
So both these tracks are very 80ies, though this first one is given away immediately by the cover. Is that the pope in the middle? Is he holding a rifle? Earth Crisis indeed... Nice song but is a bit afflicted by the flat, early 80ies production style IMHO
This is a great song, it's very sparse but the vocal is great and so is the occasional bubbly plucky guitar. Only letdown is for me is the 80's synth brass... with some real brass this would have been 10/10
Well let's just say I've listened to a lot of musiclol what are you a reggae critic?
