Part 2 of a selection of fairly recent European productions with a Deep Roots sound and feel. Kicking off with a heavy downbeat countryman style out of Dig this Way camp, followed by the UK rising singer Joe York with his characteristic Congo’s - style singing (many recent productions with that Brighton/Bristol sound… though the man’s from Wigan I think) with an interesting (bemusing?) take on the theme of gentrification… good music still, nice horns. Then some deep Roots outta France on Ka records label with Maat Disciples, also featured later in the mix paired up with Earl Wonder. A couple of Courtney John cuts from his recent LP, mixed in with a couple Payo Soul Rebel cuts too… clever and conscious lyrics as ever. Last segment is a riddim excursion on a heavy production outta Germany from the Selktor Shop crew I think, with killer cuts from Sugar Minott, Jospeh Cotton, Ray Darwin (all on Love Tank 7”) and Mighty Howard (Planet Dread Records 7”)
