Musical Raid is a hidden gem.


RockDis aka The Rockers Disciples and the crew behind Blackboard Jungle sound system, both based in France, have sneaked out the excellent roots reggae compilation 'Musical Raid'. It assembles ten vocal cuts and five dub versions of the heaviest sort.

Musical RaidThe vocal duties are mostly handled by fairly unknown singers, like Daba, Anthony John and Mo’Kalamity. The most well-known names are probably Prince Malachi from Jamaica or African Simba from the UK.

Regardless of the singers previous credits all tunes are solid, and the production is loaded with distinct influences from the late 70’s Channel One sound.

Standout tracks include Reality SouljahsBorn Again where the singer goes Marvin Gaye over a thunderous steppers infused riddim, Christine Miller’s Signs of the Times with a nicely pumping organ or Prince Malachi’s apocalyptic Jah Fire.

This compilation is a must have for fans of contemporary reggae firmly rooted the 70’s.
