Roots Reggae, mostly from Spain and South America. Slanted toward the sweeter and rootsier end, with nothing from the manic ska bands of Mexico and Argentina – maybe that’s a later comp… Way too short and leaves out dozens of fine artists, but definitely top-notch music throughout.
No FCCs detected. All excellent, I like 2, 7 and 9 best.
1. ***mellow and swingy roots skank, almost a slow ska, acoustic guitar and fine horn section, gruff-voiced singer.
2. **** uptempo, slightly dubby skank with lots of fun noises, distinctive singing by one of Spain’s great reggae/hip hop stars. Long, fun muted horn solo.
3. **long intro in English, then mellow downtempo skank, female singing. Appealing sound.
4. ***pretty midtempo bubble, vocal harmonies.
5. **relaxed midtempo syncopated skank with definite Latin rhythm and piano stylings.
6. ***downtempo ska beat with a bit of dubby beat in the background, Latin-tinged horn stylings, vocal harmonies.
7. ****slow, dubby skank by a great NY-based producer, cover of an old Eddie Palmieri salsa number. Cool female vocals.
8. ***downtempo, very rootsy skank, fine sound. Vocals in French as well as Spanish. Nice bit of vocalization in harmony with guitar.
9. ****child speaking intro, then slide guitar and very slow, mellow bubble. Nice mix of Amparo’s and Macaco’s terrific vocals.
10. ***fine rootsy downtempo skank. Mostly male vocals, but a nice female interlude.
11. ***midtempo skank, rather reminiscent of British Reggae of the 70’s, by an Algerian who simply decided to do Reggae in Spanish.
