Top 5 for the summer
1) Sin Palabras - Salsita
Beautiful latin voice over some salsa with beats and electronics. Salsa meets technology. This tune featured on Latin Groove, one of the much acclaimed Putumayo World Music Compilations
2) Le Peuple de l'Herbe feat. UKApache - No Escape
Massive jungle tune by one of the best french live bands of the moment, featuring UK Apache, who collaborated with Nicolette, on vocals.
3) Tanya Stephens - It's a pity (Doctor's Darling Riddim)
Probably the best jamaican voice of the last decade, the very soulful Tanya Stephens released this huge hit on this very popular riddim produced in Germany by Dr Ring Ding.
4) Jim Murple Memorial - Sampson
Jim Murple Memorial is a revival of the R’n’B/Rocksteady that could be heard in the Carribean Islands in the early 50s. Their music sounds like it was composed at the time, giving it a very original sound.
5) Zion Train feat. YT - Life that I Choose
Zion Train is probably the biggest dub act in UK and visited Limerick earlier this year. The tune features YT, an MC from London that collaborated with Morgan Heritage, Bounty Killer and Tanya Stephens to name a few.
ALL the tracks listed above can be listened to on the artists myspaces/last.fm pages/official websites. Enjoy
