WARMER MIXTAPES #1383 | by Tahir Panton of New Kingston
1. Steel Pulse | A Who Responsible?
My father took me to a Steel Pulse show many years ago and it completely went over my head. I never paid any attention to them. The day I heard this song I played True Democracy in its entirety and the moment the album started I was hooked. This song solidified them in my personal Reggae Hall Of Fame!
2. Third World | Roots With Quality
I wasn't familiar with many Third World songs, only Jah Glory, Try Jah Love, 96° In The Shade. It was such a pleasure to hear them play what we call a one two riddim and complement the riddim so well. I'm a simple man and I like when people can make simple Music sound so big!
3. Protoje | Who Knows (feat. Chronixx)
The composition of this song was executed perfectly. The two artists and the producer came together and made a masterpiece. Not to mention the video is top notch. This is a song I can see myself not listening to for a while and then hearing it and loving it like the first time I heard it.
4. Bob Marley And The Wailers | Natural Mystic
This track will ever be branded in my head as the go to song for DJs to turn up the vibes in a party. There is no other baseline out there like this one.
5. Bobby Caldwell | What You Won't Do For Love
Smooth song all across the board. Vocally, instrumentally and everything in between makes this song great from the start.
6. Dennis Brown | Should I
When we use to play Cover Music in the clubs this was one of my favorite songs to play.
7. Garnett Silk | Kingly Character
This track is always refreshing to get ears. Can drop this anytime of the day and it connects with me.
8. Gregory Isaacs | Rumours
I use to sing this song in the clubs. It was one of the only songs I sung at a point and I always looked forward to it.
9. Bob Marley & The Wailers | So Much Trouble In The World
One of the greatest Bob songs of all time in my humble opinion. The production sounds new age but still vintage Marley.
This was the only Music I'd listen to at a point in my life. Everything produced in this era was gold.
