My sets from Ready Steady Go Go on December 3rd 2016. This was our first reggae special and as such, this mix is a little different from previous RSGG mixes. If ye take a listen you'll probably notice that it's not all reggae. As an explanation... My first set (the first 30 mins) explores the roots of reggae with some 50s Jump Blues, Mambo, Mento & Calypso, it then goes into a bit of ska and rocksteady including a wee tribute to Prince Buster... then I finished off my second set with some soul, boogaloo, funk and dance floor r&b. On the night, I left the classic and rare reggae and ska stuff to the experts: Allan, Iain and Joe.
Hope you enjoy!
Ready Steady Go Go will be back on Feb 4th 2017!
