Sunshine Vibes (41)

8 June 2024


I feel like I'm making inroads here with my attempt to repopulate the blog with mixes and selections! This one was originally titled '41', and I'm sure you'll have guessed it's got a Reggae and Ska vibe to it, proper sunshine music. For this one I've given it a completely new cover, partly leaning on AI and partly making use of a couple of editing programmes that I enjoy playing around with.

I certainly don't proclaim to be an expert in the genre, but I love what I love and I share what I share. With this being part of my 'Year of Music' mixes and selections I was doing my best to keep things interesting for myself and for those who took the time to listen in.

I'm dedicating this one to my friend in Bishops Stortford, he knows who he is. I know he has a big love for Reggae and Ska, and he was in my thoughts when I put this one together. The sun will shine on you again my friend.

If you want to know a little more about my 'Year of Music' series, then you can find that over [HERE]. If you prefer a Soundcloud link, then you can find that [HERE] for now, if the link dies in the future, it's down to costs of maintaining these things.

I will link the tracklist up as best as I can. Most of these have come from compilations and I am pretty sure that will be the most cost effective way to own them yourself. Even though I'll put some links up, I think it best you dig around Discogs / Ebay etc for the best deals for yourself if you want to own the beauties on here.
