Ifs funny how they have riddims in Jamaica. For those of you who don't know when you talk about a riddim its the actual song without the singing. You may buy a record with 1 riddim with 15 tracks and 15 different DJ's.

guaranteed to lose any clash inna dub fi dub: 'we have the website, yes we have the website'. Instant bashment: open multiple windows and juggle the soundboards.

I'm a little bummed that this only seems to work in IE, but it's a small price to pay... thanks for the link!

Funny, works fine in Galeon under Linux. Opera doesn't like it though...


Regardless, that's some good stuff. Though I was kind of surprised to not find many of my fave roots cuts under "Classics." Where are "Police and Thieves" (Junior Murvin) or "Black Rose" (Prince Allah & Phillip Frazier)?
