Chillin’ in the Cold is my latest reggae mix and I have chosen tunes that have been keeping me warm these last couple of weeks. Since the temperature in Stockholm has been down to -15 ºC (5 ºF) recently, I have been listening to rather a lot of music to keep me sane.
Riding the Reggae Train 2010 was my previous mix. That one was a diverse excursion into one drop reggae, dancehall and dubstep.
I really enjoyed making it, so Chillin in the Cold is really eclectic and gathers many different styles. You have one drop reggae, dancehall, nyabinghi and some very, very pop influenced reggae.
The last seven songs on Chillin’ in the Cold are as close to pop music reggae can get. Any of these could easily make it into the top lists with the right promotion campaign.
Yes, I might have gone a bit soft on this one. But, I guess you have to broaden your horizons some times and not only go for the obvious roots reggae or dancehall.
As usual – Chillin’ in the Cold is a continuous mix with no full tracks and some added sound samples. If you like what you hear, please support the artists, producers and labels and purchase the tunes. Most of them are easily available as mp3, CD or vinyl.
