Well that's my Monday bus journeys sorted :cool:
ha hope you enjoy! i had a bit of a nightmare with this mix tbh...all the Louie Vega stuff has lots of strong chord elements and you just cant mix them over the top of different tunes without it going all out of tune and clashing...tunes out theres a good reason lots of soulful house djs usually let the tune play to the end and then mix out over those last few clean drum bars...but with a fair bit of planning and using for the first time a little loop function i think i've managed to get these to work together and mix without waiting to the end of what are often 10 minute tracks!

I wonder who sings lead on that? doesnt sound like any of the wailers! amazing.
I've been wondering the same thing, I'm going to find out because it's not obviously any of them.
I reckon it's Peter Tosh, trying very hard to sound like The Temptations.

my kind of tune this....wow...im in love..cant see it coming up on a google search even...where did you find it?
A handful of blank 7"s listed by a Jamaican seller on Ebay. He didn't know what they were but put up sound clips and matrix numbers. Spotted it when looking for something else and was instantly blown away by it. Someone else must have done the same because I had to bid for it, but paid £84 (only! :D) instead of the usual £200.

I love it, Cedrim Im Brooks did some amazing stuff, will start a new thread.
