Continuing on where ‘Connecting Flight’ left off, this next mix dives deeper into Jamaican ska and shows its transformation into the slower and more relaxed Rocksteady beat. ‘Rude Boy Ruckus’ mixes together tunes from 1963 to 1967 when this significant change occurred and paved way for Reggae music as we know and love today. Expect to hear some uptempo Ska scorchers and chilled out Rocksteady classics. Enjoy the mix.
