Most productions are European. You have the great Roberto Sánchez from Spain, Curtis Lynch from the UK and Frenchman Sherkan, now operating from Jamaica though.
There are both originals and relicks. Youl’ll probably recognize the last riddim as it provided the backing for the Mighty Diamonds hit tune Pass the Kouchie from the early 80’s.
Liquid’s Hold a Vibe will probably also sound familiar. It’s based on the Liquidator riddim produced by Harry J in the late 60’s. The best known version is probably I’ll Take You There by American soul group Staple Singers.
All tunes are of course carefully selected. But one song stands out since its performer passed soon after it was released. J.O.E died only 25 years old from a brain aneurysm.
As usual – Shakin’ it From the Foundation is a continuous mix with no full tracks and some added sound effects. If you like what you hear, please support the artists, producers and labels and purchase the tunes. Most of them are easily available.
