This is a selection of Jamaican sounds compiled by myself & Jack McConchie. We started DJing together years ago for a short lived but memorable club night in Glasgow's Research Club. Working on Button Up Jack introduced me to a world of music, I had always loved Ska, Reggae and Dancehall but I didn't really know what Rocksteady was until he brought a number of tracks to my attention and led me to look into the history of Jamaican music. Many of those tracks are included here. I can't listen to Soul Glide without thinking of Jack dancing with a rum and ginger in hand.
There's loads of information about the Rocksteady era online, have a read and give this a listen. Every track might not fit precisely into the Rocksteady category, there are hints of Reggae coming through, but they all have the Soul of that time in them!
Though his DJing days are done, Jack still remains one of the finest selectors I know, and this mix is evidence of that.
