the ever-delighting soul jazz dish up another sterling comp focusing on one of the most important & iconic independent reggae labels to come out of the UK in the 80s.

Fashion released hundreds of records that successfully reflected & set the changing styles & perspectives of reggae music in the UK, from UK dancehall & lovers rock in the 1980s through to the mighty rise of jungle in the second half of the 1990s. Fashion’s focus was firmly on music produced in the UK. This unique British perspective shaped both lyrical content & musical fashion. The large roster of first generation British-born artists & MCs on the label, including General Levy, Papa Face, Smiley Culture, Bionic Rhona, Asher Senator, Laurel & Hardy, Top Cat & many more, often gave a unique & humorous British lyrical perspective, discussing everyday subjects, from police harassment to road safety.
