grafta Gotta heap of reggae downloads I can point people to. They're legal, ie radio shows. Til recently I was co-hosting a new release reggae/dancehall show down in NZ on Base FM, my buddy still runs it and puts up downloads of most of the shows.

The shows are straight up mixes with very little talking so perfect for bumpin while you ride, no gaps!

I'll link to a couple of the roots shows and give ya's the folder link as well for you to look thru if you have time.

Jugglin_Show_23rdJuly2011_Roots.mp3

cjcameron11 I love chilled out reggae and a few bands i listen to regularly are from New Zealand

Katchafire - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S52UQ...eature=related
House of Shem - www.youtube.com/watch?v=bgcgAjG8VEQ&feature=related
The Black Seeds - www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDyUcmoIkl0&feature=related

It may not be your thing, but then again it might. Just a taste of their styles, there is heaps out there.

Tarzanman Ok, so you like first wave ska. Like the term 'reggae', dancehall really encompasses a few types of genres fused with reggae. Everything from club techno (like Mega Banton) to ballads by Junior Tucker. Reggaeton only bears a passing resemblance to reggae...it has its roots in latin carribbean music and is more of a genre with reggae-influences than a hybrid of two types of music.

I don't know much about Afro-dub at all... and my dub (or rub a dub) experience comes from listening to my father playing tapes in the car when I was a kid, so I will have to do some research before I can give you any suggestions other than Lee Scratch Perry.

Have you listened to any Damian Marley? Here's a song he did with Nas - Nas & Damian Marley - Nah Mean - YouTube

I will try to give you 2 or 3 suggestions based on what you suggest. Gimme some time to check with my peeps!

I'm not big on the punk sound that came around in the 70's. Dancehall, as I understand it, is really a club music where Reggaeton originated from (of which I have a huge library I never even listen to) and it's really not my type.

I would say, based on the stuff that comes up on Pandora that I like, my preference is for Roots and also Dub type sounds. I especially like super fat, thick and hazy sound of dub. Afro-dub is interesting, it's kinda like jazzier dub, percussion heavy sound with the dancehall, dem-bow thing going.

I have a huge collection of electronic music that spans pretty much most of the genre but a decent portion of it is deep house, ambient trance, psy etc. you can really hear the dub influence in it. I suppose that and some of the old funk/soul type music that Hip-Hop samples is where I identify with dub music.

You don't have to go to any lengths to really put together anything comprehensive for me, though I do appreciate the offer. Just if you know anything off the top of your head. Thanks for the recommendations, everyone. I'm almost off 70 hour weeks so I will have a chance to actually listen soon!

skycdo Rebelution is an awesome band. They are more of a Cali-Reggea genre but they are one of the only bands that I enjoy all of their music.
