HOLT 45 - The John Holt Experience From the Rednote Vaults
John Holt ....what can I say.
One of my favorite artists and one of the earliest singers that got me personally hooked on reggae vibes from hearing his ali baba tune sampled in a jungle tune i heard in the early 90`s . I will admit . I was a huge fan of Jungle before i was a huge fan of reggae. Sure i knew of the staples but it was through my love for jungle drum and bass that i received my eduduction into reggae music and culture. It was a great way to hear sampled music. later on I would be record shopping and find the originals and be like HOLY COW this is awesome!" and the digs became meaningful on many occasions when i would unearth some original Gem.
Anyways. ali baba...played on the ``good times `` circuit by norman jay.i heard it there first (soul king dj ), so props to norman J as it was ali baba that got me into John Holt. I must have heard ali baba 1,000,000 times by now and its still great. i did not play it here
