Demolition City [Baltimore riddim]
Sly and Robbie - Reaggae Greats - 1984 - Mango
This 80s collection of Sly and Robbie instrumentals sees the rhythm section soaked in quality 80s production. Synthdrums along with real drums, classic riddims with spaced out sound effects and dubs. Not necessarily "roots reggae" but just as heavy.
