volume 1 was stellar & we’re really loving this – the reggae scene in England was a hotbed of imaginative ideas & disarmingly charismatic delivery.

these tracks Mix themes of struggle, resistance, justice, equality, identity & Rastafari played & sung from the heart with both conviction & skill. Volume 2 starts off in exactly the same way as its predecessor with Handsworth's biggest musical exports, the legendary Steel Pulse & ‘Bun Dem’ produced by the Dennis Bovell. and it only gets better from there…
