During summertime the general public begins to take some interest in reggae. I cannot remember how many times I’ve had questions about listening to reggae music all year round.
However, there is reggae which is more summerish than other. The kind that’s maybe even better suited for sun, salt baths and lazy days on the beach. Reggaemani’s new Summer Vibes mix is the soundtrack for all those days.
There are almost only soft rhythms in the mix and it’s no coincidence that cozy producer Kemar “Flava” McGregor is responsible for five of the songs. But there are of course much more. How about three tunes on the revitalized Coming in From the Cold rhythm or the saxophone party in the dance-friendly Daddy Loves You More by Daddy G.
Summer Vibes is a continuous mix with no full tunes and some added sound effects. Some of the tunes are from 2010, but the main part are from 2009 and 2008.
