lndtbr asked: Jey do you know much about reggae, could you rec me some good reggae?
I know a bit about reggae! I don’t know if you could describe it as “much,” but I know a little. Definitely, though I can recommend some good reggae!
I did put a few songs in here (which, to be fair, is doing a bit of a disservice to the reggae genre, throwing it in with first-wave ska), but music this rich in history and meaning deserves its own discussion. Thank you for asking about it.
Here is your mixtape; I hope you enjoy it!
Most of this is older reggae from the birth and early evolution of the genre, and it’s roughly chronological. There’s some more recent stuff near the end, as well as a number of international groups (from the United Kingdom, various African countries, even Denmark), but modern reggae is quite a different sort of music and that may not have been what you were looking for. If you have questions about any of it, or if you’d like more or want to try out different styles of reggae, let me know!
