Chart positions

This upload was 13th in the Roots Reggae chart , 28th in the Dancehall chart and 58th in the 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.

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. ;-)
