About this item

Thomas Wesley Pentz aka Diplo - one half of the production team behind the popular hybrid reggae project Major Lazer lends his eclectic ear and considerable talents as a reggae selector to Riddimentary, a guided tour through classic tracks from the Greensleeves reggae catalogue. The continuous blended mix covers twenty plus years of cutting edge, Jamaican and UK hits from the top producers in dub, reggae and dancehall from the 1980s and 90s. The retro flavor and historical context of these selections shines a light on Diplo’s production influences and expert knowledge of the reggae genre. For new converts to reggae or collectors of crucial tracks from reggae’s classic era, "Riddimentary" is rudimentary.
