Hi!
It's a lot of people from England here, used to the reggae-scene from their home country...
I'm quite familiar whit the modern stuff but I have a huge gap on the 90:s. Tena Stelin, LIDJ, Martin Campbell.. all of them are wicked but I seem to don't get any further in my search. It'sa decade, so i'm sure there is tons of wicked tunes and artist to discover ... Please enlighten me !
Thanks

"let the light shine" : Hydroponics ( far far superior , imo, to their later stuff )


"put down the guns" : DIsciples 12"

ANY GUssie P music ! He is the highest pinnacle, imo, of UK roots check out "Conquroaring ( sic ) Lion", ( dub album ), "Wise Man" ( 10" single ) and his productions of Mykal Rose and Daweh Congo..Unbeatable!

Also, Jah Warrior meets Napthali, a long lost classic of UK roots imo called "One of these Days" -- it's very heavy, but with good lyrics, and good atmospheres.

Jah Warrior's "Dub from the Heart Vol 1 and 2 " : Sampling collage dubs were popular back in early 90's and these are praps highest peak of that art , imo at least.

Mananseh , all three or four albums. Patchy and so so sometimes, but when the get it right they are fantastic.

More Rockers : "Dub Plates Vol 2" ( Along with Congo Natty and Kemet Heavyweight Sound, imo one of the peaks of UK ragga/dub/junglist hybrids imo, with Navigator on the mic. )

"I Believe" : Danny Vibes 7"

Also check out the new Jah Warrior single by Prof Frisky-- Very heavy.

"Jah Light Jah Love" : The peak of Vibronics career imo, and one of THE best Uk roots tunes ever imo.

The Mannaseh tunes with Spiky T were great -- "Paper Soldiers" ( right title ? )

Good mic chanters would be Knatty P ( Surreal chanting , with strictly weird lyrics -- no cliches at all ! ) and the inspired Brother Culture, breathing life into a trad chanting style. You cant go wrong with these two!

All the Disciples albums are great -- reggae but with their own almost industrial force.

Not forgetting the tune "Soldier Martyr" by Sis Gloria and Real Eyes, a track that went almost un noticed.

Daweh Congo : GUidance. An incrdible album imo. Burning Spear for the 90's!

"One Fine Day" : Prince Alla meets Russ D

"Spangdubulous dub" : Arguably a duff album name, but a great album by Russ D and Jonah Dan. Still sounds fresh today, and its from 96/97. Why hasnt this fine album been re issued?

The Truth :"Strictly Roots" ( right title? ) Soul 2 Soul's Daddae Harvey teamed up with Norman Jays brother, Joey Jay , and this album was all but ignored....but I thought it had it's high points!

Early Junglist meets James Brown meets Tubby's collision with a little Ras Michael thrown in for good measure...I though it was really good in places, but I know others found it dull....

also unmissable imo --

Patience : Simba meets Jah Warrior
Might in Battle : P Broggs meets Jah Warrior
Just a little spliff dubwise : Hughie Isaachar
Fittest of the Fittest : Culture Freeman
Meditation Rock : """"""""""""

How could I overlook Iration Steppas with "Rejection" a monster of a track with a huge over powering sound.

2/6/7/11/19 !!!!!!!!!! Absolutely! Regarding 19, it's also worth getting the Shaka own label cut too....Immaculate music, stripped down, minimalist and hypnotic! 19 is Not everyones cup of tea, esp the heavy steppers shaka heads, but a wonderful album imo
