Rocksteady Cool (Again) w/ Undercover

Rocksteady Cool (Again) w/ Undercover

Chart positions

This show was 2nd in the global ska chart, 14th in the global reggae chart, 20th in the global disco chart and 36th in the global soul chart.

A tribute to the current sound with that authentic rocksteady vibe dropping you straight to a smokey Kingston studio, circa '68.
From Daptones, The Frightnrs (RIP Dan Klein), to Truth & Souls, Jr Thomas & The Volcanos, they've captured the vintage sound through authentic recording and restrained instrumentals.
Ticklah is neck deep producing this sound, including the sublime Bob & Gene opening track and his genre defining Sharon Jones remix.
Shy FX' promised reggae album never quite eventuated but a few singles dropped and did not disappoint, helped by vocalists Kiko Bun & Liam Bailey.
Peckings have long been repping the rocksteady, doing it in their own way. Here we have a few vocals where Lady Lex, Bitty McLean & Courtney John meet classic Treasure Isle relicks.
Finally the JA contingent of Chronixx, Jesse Royal and Protoje, ride their forefathers riddims like no-one else, showing us all how it's still done.
