A few folks have covered Junior Murvin and Lee “Scratch” Perry’s “Police and Thieves,” but as far as I know no one has done a jazz version until Zara McFarlane!

See-I is one of my favorite DC Metro area bands. Always bringing a fun mix of reggae mixed up with contemporary party music vibes.

Shinehead is credited as one of the first Jamaican toasters—or MC’s—to fuse reggae and hip-hop in the 1980s, leading to a string of hits, including this cover of Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean.”

Song of the Day: Third World “96º in the Shade”

The song title says it all! Third World was/is a fairly commercial reggae band that’s usually too slick for my tastes but with “96° In the Shade,” they hit it right lyrically and sonically.

Song of the Day: Yami Bolo “Free Mandela”

“Free Mandela” is a digital roots burner from Yami Bolo, one of the many celebrations of Nelson Mandela, and is probably my favorite. Heavy, dubby, synthy… it’s 80′s reggae at it’s best.

See-I’s “The King (Magic Fly Remix)” is an absolute dance floor reggae delight. See-I are a long time local DC favorite. I’ve been playing this tune for a long time and they have now put it up for free download at Soundcloud.

The Archives don’t get nearly as much recognition as they should, especially here in DC, their hometown. Comprised of members that have played with some of reggae’s all-time greatest, their new LP stands out as  true winner among a sea of tepid, watered-down roots reggae releases that seem to be the norm as of late. ”Crime,” with […]

Song of the Day: Yellowman “I’m Getting Married”

Yellowman is probably my all-time favorite dancehall artist. He comes correct on this crowd-pleasing tune, “I’m Getting Married” on the “I’m Not Crazy” riddim (also one of my favorites). This one always puts a smile on people’s faces, like a lot of Yellowman joints do!
