  1. Not a bass video, but let's see what Copeland says about all this reggae stuff...
  2. Bought a guitar amp from Dave and everything about the transaction was awesome! The item is wonderful, and despite the logistical complications, he went out of his way (literally) to figure it out, and kept the item safely for me way longer than he needed to! Dave is yet another reason the Basschat community is so great!
  3. Just bought a great guitar from Paul, exactly as described. Excellent comms, quick turnaround and great packaging. Thanks Paul!
  4. Same.....no money for this and no space....but when has that stopped me before......if I close my eyes maybe it goes away
  5. Indeed it does! I was a young whippersnapper when that came out.
  6. From the instant I saw the Junior Reid I instantly had to go play this
  7. well, yes I do sweet...
  8. Nice....just what I needed right now
  9. So I know this is the 'reggae thread' but it encompasses and touches all the flavours here anyways and it all gets love. I had seen this little mini documentary this guy put together on dancehall from his perspective as a newcomer to it. I was impressed and quite entertained by it. I'm not going to fact check it as I did not know a ton of those details anyways, I just grew up on the music around me at the turn of the century (or thereabouts). But I really like how he put it together and he touches on the history and Sound Systems etc. which was brought up in this thread the other day, and even ties in David Bowie into his discussion. Anyways, it popped back up in my youtube recommendations just now and I figured it might be entertaining for anyone who has not seen it.
  10. Well...there there is only one place to go then...but unfortunately you have to wait until tomorrow as they do not open on Sundays (and it not free ). I have not gone to the Clapham branch in a while since they opened up the Shepherds Bush outlet (heck I was there about a week ago)...but oh so worth it! (prices have raised unfortunately though). Shepherds Bush branch is literally a hole in the wall, just enough space to fit yourself infront the counter and pay/collect your order but I'm going for the food just to pick up. If you need that chicken roti and an 'Apple J' or your 'red solo'....then look no further. https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g186338-d2256998-r687449545-Roti_Joupa-London_England.html
  11. Where where!? I could do with some pelau or doubles or something this nice Sunday evening...pass me a plate.
  12. he would have been known by some already but after that track he just blew up big time. Fun/stupid story...I was out clubbing with some friends many moons ago, and Damien had a concert that weekend, so he dropped into the club with his peeps. So its late and we outside the club now jus' chillin' and Damien decides to leave and passes by us. My friend belts out 'Junior Gong!'. He proceeds to promptly drop his head, raise his fist and tell us the ubiquitous...'Blessssss...'.
  13. @SumOne For real! I forgot all about that one, nice.....
  14. Ok this might throw off the feel of the thread a bit, but I'm listening to this and I really dig it. But its giving me a sense of something else, and then I realise its this (at least in my head). Strip back the bassline a heck of alot more, concentrate on the main repetitive phrase slowed down, have the bass boom some more and fast forward a couple decades...at very least, it gave me a reason to listen to this one again OK...back to the old school stuff now....
  15. So maybe nobody else is gonna care about this, but my mind was blown recently! I had posted up a cover of 'Lady' done by Wayne Wade a couple weeks ago on this thread that I had been listening to for years, and it got me to thinking what else he has. I then stumble across 'Too Experienced'. I was like, hold on, that is a Barrington Levy song (Which I absolutely love!)...but Wayne Wade must predate that, so Barrington's is a cover of his! So I keep searching, and I come across this article: https://jamaica-gleaner.com/gleaner/20111002/ent/ent4.html Only to realise that they are both covers of a song by Bob Andy from 1970. This may be old news for some, but I was amazed to find all this out! Just in case it interests anyone, here are 3 version of the same song (or 2 versions and one original). That Barrington version will forever have a special place in my heart from my youth, but it was so cool to find out a little history of the song and hear how different artists did it in slightly different styles. If you've made it this far reading this, congratulations on listening to my ramblings Hope you enjoy the music.
  16. So here I am on a Sunday morning on my laptop trying to be productive with some things I need to get done, and this has been keeping me company for the past hour and a half or so....just clicking repeat everytime it finishes
  17. Fuh real dude. Man, I have not listened to Burning Spear in a long time....time to hit up some youtube I would also dig some remakes. Like this one. Personally, I really like the original song even without the reggae vibes. But this reggae version just always had me wanting to dance with my lady...just puts me in a place (sorry if this was also dropped in this thread, no way I can go through the entire thread for now to see what was posted)...play this on a long drive to the beach, or at volume on a beautiful chilled Sunday morning....yesss....
  18. Cool, I did not know this thread existed. Brings me back to the reason I fell in love with bass in the first place, dub. I can vaguely remember when I used to go to my aunt's place when I was very young and she would have these ole' school reggae vinyls playing and I just did not get the vibe then...it always used to make me feel sleepy But then in later years when dub/dancehall was a big thing in my youth and getting more exposure to that and reggae...the hypnotism and rhythm got you.
  19. Darn, I had forgotten all about that commercial. That was legit the first time I ever heard that song. This one, might be too tame for you all..but that Debenham's commercial got that song hook stuck in my brain, it just makes me feel happy.
  20. Really lovely bass. Were the machine heads changed out for the more updated wooden style ones?
  21. Tandro


    It's like wood grain psychedelic...cool.
  22. I literally just finished watching a youtube vid of Tony Grey getting his newest Fodera. And at the end it just fired that thing up in my head again, 'I've got to get a Fodera one day'. Bucket list sorta thing. I immediately come on BC to see what Fodera's are lurking around, just to window shop and dream. GLWTS
