This Comp was an eye opener for me, I come more from experimental, disco, and electro, and never really sunk my teeth into dub or dancehall or things like that, I ve always had a couple of friends who were deep into it, but yea It was something distant. However, this comp yea revealed very clearly to me the raw beat innovation in the instrumentals of these releases. What is cool about it is that its not so in your face like say, hard edged hip hop, but it has the same power, in a laid back mellower sound. Thats gettin a bit abstract, but you ll feel it more than think it once you hear it .
In our current deconstructed techno and deconstructed hiphop era, of Post trap /hyphy/vaporwave/chiptune ,revisited junglehardcore etc era, many of these tracks surprisingly fit perfectly in!

Bought that compilation when it was out and realised that if you listen to dancehall without vocals it turns out that it's much more interesting to people into techno/electronic stuff because you realise how forward thinking and technoid the riddims made in jamaica are and you start wondering how these guys manage to stay on the edge and always one step ahead !
makes you (like me ) start collecting the seveninches just for the hot riddims.
I think that this is an essential compilation for someone who is an electronic/techno beathead to get into the dancehall stuff.
(ask hardwax recordshop in berlin who stock the seveninches just for the riddims)
top !

I bought this compilation thinking that it would be a nice little selection of <b>interesting</b> dancehall beats, useful for djing out with, mixing in with a band etc. It actually turns out that, without the vocals/toasting over the top, the beats alone sound weak and instead of interesting, just plain boring.

Give me a nice heavy dub sound every time!
