Captain Planet is one of my favorite producers these days. On his latest single, “In the Gray,” he cooks up a viciously catchy reggae instrumental, but for me it Brit Lauren’s infectious vocals that make the tune.

One of the first reggae comps I came across was the 1987 Reggae Dance Hall Classics on Sleeping Bag Records. It was my first introduction to Barrington Levy.

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!

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.”

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.

“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.
