Mit ‘Lovers Rock’ getaggte Beiträge


Bitty McLean, für mich einer der größten Sänger, die Reggae-Music je hervorgebracht hat, hat schon vielen Kennern und Liebhabern des Lovers-Rock eine Gänsehaut mit seiner unbeschreiblich nicen Stimme verpasst! Eines seiner Konzerte zählt zu den besten die ich je besucht habe. In diesem Video spricht Delroy Easton McLean über seine Geschichte mit der Music, seine ersten Hits in den 90ern, die Musiker mit denen er zusammenarbeitet bis zu seinen aktuellen Werken.

Vorhang auf für Bitty McLean!

Unsere Freunde von „STING LIKE A BEE“ haben vergangene Woche einen neuen Lovers Mix released, den ich mit euch teilen will.


Ladet Euch den Mix per rechtsklick, speichern unter auf das Cover, oder hört ihn euch auf Mixcloud an.


As a belated new year’s treat, Sting like a bee presents you with a different kind of lovers mix. We all love the music by the likes of Sanchez,
Bitty McLean, Beres Hammond, Glen Washington and so on, but we also felt we should turn the spotlight on some less familiar yet remarkable artists
and songs of timeless quality. Add Sting’s trademark mixing and selection technique and experience the perfect soundtrack for you and your sweetheart:
Sharing the Night –
For loving purposes only!

In case you’ve missed the last 50 years of Jamaican Music, the Heatwave sums it up for you guys.

Jack it up selector! The Heatwave cram the biggest UK hits to come out of Jamaica into one crazy mix: 50 years + 83 tunes x 73 minutes = approximately five million rewinds. These songs have been pulled up, wheeled, rewound and replayed literally MILLIONS of times – in bedrooms, house parties, blues dances, nightclubs and raves throughout the UK.

To celebrate 50 years of Jamaican independence, The Heatwave’s quickfire insanity-inducing DJ style is applied to half a century’s worth of classic tracks. 50 years of Jamaican sounds hyping UK ravers. How many times will you rewind this mix?

It’s been a while since we released our last mix, so we thought today’s the best day to surprise you with a brandnew thing Mr.Six been working on a few weeks now.

Since Starlight was a strictly Dancehall-Mix for all the bashment heads, we decide to give you this  sweet piece of a Mix-CD with strictly Sanchez Tunes in a Lovers Style for all you Lovers out there!

From the weather is getting all cold and rainy the last couple days, this Mix is the perfect Soundtrack for you, to just stay in bed and cuddling with your beloved ones.


Higher Level pres. The Art of Seduction – Sanchez in a stricly Lovers Style

The Dudes over at breath of life put up a mixtape of Gregory Isaacs that I want to share with you.

Gregory Anthony Isaacs – 15 July 1950 (or is it 1951?), Fletchers Land, Kingston, Jamaica, is the originator of “lover’s rock,” a whole sub-genre of reggae. There are more than 300 Gregory Isaacs albums circulating in the world. That’s right, over 300 different recordings. Sure at least 100 to 150 of them are compilations put together by diverse producers, each trying to corner the market on the “cool ruler” treasure chest of reggae recordings.

Much like Bob Marley, you don’t have to be a fan of reggae to recognize the importance of this artist—in this case there are literally over a hundred other love rockers out there, each of whom has their own following, but all of them owe a debt to Gregory Isaacs
