Strictly Roots Reggae Series Vol 1 takes you back to the iconic sound of 70s roots reggae. The raw and electrifying music emanating from Jamaica that captured our imagination with artists such as Burning Spear, Marley, Abyssinians, Sly & Robbie, Agggrovators, Lee “Scratch” Perry, King Tubby - those tuff driving riddims, hypnotic bass lines, punchy horns, slightly off-kiltered pianos skanks, bubbling organs and chicken scratch guitar skanks all layered with a variety of percussion instruments that culminated to create a unique and defining style and sound.
Live instrumentation and performance: the focus for this pack is on the “human” element. There are slight imperfections, timing moments that just miss the “quantized beat”, notes that add a shade of “blue”, a little natural hiss that emanates from guitar amps and bits of noise from analog equipment - all with the aim to provide a highly usable loop pack that brings that little bit extra “something special” to any song.
