Mikey DON’s Summer Mix

Ahead of next Friday’s Night of the Living Dread, we asked NOTLD main-man Mikey DON to share some of his favourites tracks with us. 

Take a look below:

Jallanzo - Reggae Rockin Tonight
An absolute modern day underground classic that I have been playing for over five years & made my anthem by my artist out of Portmore, Jamaica. Absolute KILLER tune!!

Morgan Heritage - Strictly Roots 

The title track from their latest LP produced by wicked UK duo Don Chandler & Seani B. Absolute MONSTER track!!

Dalton Harris - I’m Dumb

Artist for the future & Jamaica's latest artist tipped to break into stardom following in the footsteps of Romain Virgo. Produced by legendary Jamaican producer Donavon Germaine (Beres Hammond/Buju Banton/Queen Ifrica/etc…). BIIIIG tune!!

Busy Signal - What If

A brilliantly written song laid down on a reworking of Little Lenny’s ‘Gun Inna Baggy' riddim that is having the dancehall fraternity up in arms because a number of people think that Busy is dissing Vybz Kartel, when in fact it is the opposite. WICKED tune!!

Barry Brown - Peace & Love

This tune epitomises what roots reggae music is all about. A message of living in unity no matter what colour, race or creed produced by Jah Thomas.

Courtney Melody - Bad Boy

This track is simply a dancehall classic which never fails to rock the spot released in 1988 on the Techniques Record Label owned by Winston Riley (RIP).

Capleton - Attack Dem

Capleton smashes it on this riddim. Do I need to say anymore?? Attack dem with the righteous…

Stylo G & Gully Bop - Who She Want

Jamaica's man of the moment teams up with UK's dancehall sensation in a comical lyrical clash about which one of them the women would prefer to have in their life. Dancefloor filler.

Barrington Levy - Murderer

One of the sweetest voices in reggae music comes with an absolute 80's classic produced by Jah Life over the classic rework of Clement Dodd's 'Hot Milk' Studio 1 riddim.

Chronixx - Play Some Roots

Germany’s Silly Walks stable comes up again with the goods and this collaboration with Jamaica’s Chronixx is a modern dancefloor hit. This riddim also features Dalton Harris, Shaggy and Ras Demo amongst others on this heavy riddim. Get familiar!!

Just announced: Nahko and Medicine for the People Guests, 21st August.

Nahko and Medicine for the People Guests

21 August / 19:30 / More Info / Tickets on sale tomorrow, 09:00

Nahko, an Oregon-native born a mix of Puerto Rican, Native American, and Filipino bloodlines considers himself a citizen in service to the planet. Disillusioned by the world around around him and inspired by vagabond, American musicians and storytellers like Conner Oberst and Bob Dylan, Nahko left home as a teenager in search of adventure and self discovery. Armed with stories, a guitar, and a fierce set of ideals, he set out to bridge the cultural gaps dividing his own psyche. He began producing a public musical journal of his journey toward personal, spiritual, and social healing, and thus Medicine for the People was born. Recently, Nahko discussed his successes, his philosophies, his music, and his life with Huffington Post, who called Nahko’s music “beautiful and stirring”. Nahko describes his music and a mixture of hip-hop and folk rock with a world message.
