So here I am, starting things off... Tape #1 is a set of dancehall, but specifically a lot of Tin Pan stuff from the late '80s / early '90s. For those unfamiliar, this was a specific dancehall era / sound that was (generally) characterized by a 3-step snare pattern over a 4/4 kick, with big sine wave bass on top. Often there's some rolling snare business added in that almost verges on a marching band sound. Anyhoo, this tape is a lot of big big tin pan choons and some lesser known cuts as well, some old, some newer revival cuts, and some other four-on-the-floor dancehall action that just fits in well--enjoy!

Oh, and I should give a shout to my homie Dub Boy from Brizzle...I was over at his house a few months ago and we had a big vinyl-to-mp3 encoding party. He was kind enough to let me rip a truckload of his dancehall 45s, so a fair chunk of this mix (15%, if you wanna get really nerdy about it) is from his library.
