BMC spinning Tunes - Jam For A While - A Modern Roots 45s Session

Playing tracks by

Beres Hammond & Jah Youth, Richie Stephens & Cocoa Tea, Peter Tosh & Buju Banton, Capleton & Junior Reid, Yami Bolo & Chuck Fenda and more.

Chart positions

This show was 13th in the global roots reggae chart, 28th in the global dancehall chart and 58th in the global reggae chart.

Now for something different. Instead of mixing a set of pre-recorded tunes on the computer, I decided to just spin some tunes and record straight from the line-out of my mixing panel. No fancy riddim-transitions, no cutting parts for the nicest flow, no effects, just the vibe of the moment: turntables turning, tunes at hand and see where it goes. I always loved the way I made my mixes, but it is very very time-consuming and, as expressed, didn't feel like worth all the effort anymore. This could be a way in which I might still drop some mixes every now and then, since the time it costs is basically the actual recording time and I can still play some tunes I rate for the interested listeners. Might be less appealing to some, others might in fact enjoy the idea. Whatever it is, this is it for now. I did a trial-run with some modern roots 45s, little over 35 minutes for now and got enough encouragement from the people to go ahead and upload it, so here it is: hear me Jam For A While.

Thanks Colin!!

nice BMC, only negative remark could be that the mix is too short :-)
and everybody is entitled to at least one artist that is not his or hers most favourite singer (mine is Buju :-) )

Thanks Gerard! Yes, relatively short, but as it was mostly a trial-run I figured to not stretch it too long. Will see what future epsiodes bring. :-)

And yes, it's ok to not like Buju, haha, no surprise there. Capleton is in there too. ;-)
