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 :P ). 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. ;)

I  drive over to barking sometimes, there’s a place there called The Jerk Pit, the shop isn’t that big but the chicken rice and coleslaw is amazing 🙂

Not music but here's The Reggae Boat, a favourite landmark for Southend locals with it's owner Tony Dread. We salute you.

That’s great, when I was in Ibiza a few years ago I went to reggae beach, it’s a bit of a tourist thing but quite a good place, they just play reggae all day and night and party on the beach

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.

Rhythm & Sound are great for relatively modern dubby stuff  (or their stuff as Basic Channel is more Dub Techno).

 

This is a mix of all the vocal versions of their 'see me yah' riddim.....hypnotic stuff.

Bobbo Shanti 'Poor people must work' 30-33m is my favourite part. 

I always like Paul St Hilaire's stuff (he's 38-42m on that Se mi yah mix). His album 'Unspecified' is decent:
