I have started listening to Reggae music in the very early 80’s when i discovered Dub albums from Prince Jammy or LKJ. When i started playing bass guitar with Kreidler in 1994 those reggae basslines have been a huge influence on my playing. As i failed to properly play off beat syncopations my basslines sounded more like country or new wave.
Darryl Moore who’s been a friend and then collaborator of to rococo rot introduced me to some thrift stores in his Brixton neighbourhood where i did endless listening sessions to jamaican 7” inches. Most of the tunes on my mix are gems from those humid bargain places.
