Reggae Tech

  • For their next release, "Jah No Partial," Major Lazer, the future-dancehall project of Philly producer Diplo, takes it back, in a sense, to the roots, sampling a vintage 1970s Johnny Osbourne acapella and pasting it to an original UK-style jungle riddim. Watch the "making of" video below.
  •  Producer Dubmatix is back again with new music and free production loops for the studio heads. Download free bass, drum and sound effect loops here at his Reggae Loops page
    (100 Limit Download Per Loop). And preview "Dirty Dubstep" his new dubstep loop set for producers. Dubmatix has a new album out soon featuring U-Roy, Luciano, Earl Zero and Tenor Fly.
  •  More Spiritual is the new riddim from the Green Lion crew, featuring big tunes from Mr. Williamz, Million Stylez, YT, Kabaka Pyramid and more. The set is based on the Henry "Junjo" Lawes classic production of "Ganja Smuggling" recorded at Channel One studios in Jamaica  in 1981. Get the promo mix here.
  • Singer and musician Stewart Wilson has linked with Mixing Lab's Clive Hunt for his great new single "Three Kings." Backed by the Love Culture band, the track is fresh modern roots with a solid message. Download "Three Kings."
