To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Jamaican Independence I was asked by the BBC to put together a short mix documenting Jamaica's influence on British music over those 50 years.. No doubt, as with my 'Best Of The Noughties' mix, I will have missed out a few big ones.. but lets not forget I had to cram 50 years worth of music into 15 minutes here!? This was a mammoth task but not one I was going to turn down, so I hope you enjoy MY take on this.
Big up the BBC for inviting me to do this, Toddla T for getting hold of the mix and playing it twice (!!) and Jamaica for inspiring so much amazing music and more.
TO THE WORLD!!!!
