Rockers Skank

If you’ve been following us for a whle and paid attention you’ll know we love everything in between and a bit off. We adore music that isn’t pure. New wavers trying to make disco, house producers going jazz, Jamaicans trying to emulate the sound of Motown, … . Rockers playing Reggae has been an area we have been exploring with particular interest since discovering Wrongtom’s Skank Blog Bologna and his excellent Spiky Dread compilation. So this mix is the result of that search and also and ode to it.
