Listen to Shakin' it From the Foundation



Time again for a mix with some great reggae music. Shakin’ it From the Foundation is a mixed dish of contemporary reggae. I’ve added some rock steady, nyabinghi and hip-hop infused one drop.

Most productions are European. You have the great Roberto Sánchez from Spain, Curtis Lynch from the UK and Frenchman Sherkhan, now operating from Jamaica though.

There are both originals and relicks. Youl’ll probably recognize the last riddim in the mix as it provided the backing for the Mighty Diamonds hit tune Pass the Kouchie from the early 80’s.

Liquid’s Hold a Vibe will probably also sound familiar. It’s based on the Liquidatorriddim produced by Harry J in the late 60’s. The best known version is probably I’ll Take You There by American soul group Staple Singers.

All tunes are of course carefully selected. But Rasta Chant stands out since its performer passed soon after it was released. J.O.E died only 25 years old from a brain aneurysm.

As usual – Shakin’ it From the Foundation is a continuous mix with no full tracks and some added sound effects. If you like what you hear, please support the artists, producers and labels and purchase the tunes. Most of them are available on vinyl, mp3 or CD.
