So Junior Reid (mentioned above) sang for Black Uhuru, replacing Mykal Rose... who is also 'oldschool' but still recording and killing it on modern Jamaican riddims. Pretty similar sounding artists and often mistaken for each other...



Shabba Ranks on the other hand, not often mistaken for anyone

It'd be rude not to post a tune by Shabba, straight foundation artist, 'father' to many artists including Vybz Kartel (whether he likes it or not). Produced by young Jamaican riddim builder Steven Mcgregor (Son of reggae legend Freddy Mcgregor) for big ship records.



and just in case you need to checkout some classic Shabba:



Oh gad this could go on and on

Just so I don't attempt to drag this thread the way of bashment this's something a bit more 'reggae'...

We touched on Alborosie a couple posts back, he's def worth a listen. This's from 2007



Funnily enough this is on the same riddim as classic Eek A Mouse (mentioned in a post earlier) tune 'Ganja Smuggling' from 1981.



So you can see it's easy to connect most modern reggae with the 'oldschool'. The definitions for me become blurry. I'm relatively young so classics for me are kinda modern. I don't have nostalgia for something I didn't grow with. Jamaican music is constantly reinventing and re-using their music. It's a big part of the charm for me

Didn't expect to find another Expendables fan! Have you heard of the Supervillains? If not, I suggest you take a listen:


Found this guy on YouTube awhile back:

Some of my friends went to their concert over the summer and got me hooked on them. Apparently they're incredible live!
