To Rococo Rot - Stefan Schneider presents Roots Speculation Part II


June 11, 2011

Time: 8:30am

I 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 bass lines were a huge influence on my playing. As I failed to properly play off beat syncopations my bass lines 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.
