It's easy to view reggae as laid back, dope smokin', sun drenched dance music but during the seventies Jamaica was, along with Germany, the capital of studio based experimental recording! Never before had music been stretched, manipulated and drenched in as many effects as the Jamaican producers were doing in their very basic studios. These experimental, and hard-core, recordings needed equally extreme vocalists and a new breed of DJs started 'toasing' over the studio dub plates creating a heavy sound that has never been matched!
Turn up your bass and groove to a selection of heavy vinyl from Kingston JA in the 1970s.
