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.
