"Ganja Tunes": Pretty self explanatory! "Gun Tunes" Again...Kind of speaks for
"Lovers": Tunes that are for those moments inna dance where you just
want to sex up the mood.
"Rock Steady": From late 1966 to late 1968, Rock Steady was the ruling sound of Jamaica. Basically, it was brief period where the music slowed down letting the vocalist take over with a typically soul-inflected sound. For the true obsessives, Rock Steady is the rarest and most beloved genre of Jamaican music.
"refix remix refix": The name says it all! The version, the dub was the first Remix, but these remixes are tunes that have been re-fixed with different version.
"Reggae Covers": Pop/rock/soul tunes as covered by Jamaican artists.
"Roots": Kind of ephermral and subjective, but Conscious tunes
that get DEEP.
"Ska": Kind of self explanatory, but can also contain some
early pre-ska Jamaican R&B.
"Rub A Dub": Tunes from the late 70s to mid eighties
that started focusing on the dancehall itself and pre-dated digital production.
"Soundbwoy Killer": Tunes
that actually make specific reference to Killing a Sound.
"War Box!": Tunes
that are boastful, aggressive, warlike or can be used as counteractions inna tune
for tune. This is the best area for those shopping for 45 shootout material.
"Reggae": Tunes from the early 70s up until the rub a dub started taking over.
"Reggae Breaks": Difficult one to define, but basically Jamaican tunes that
could find a home in a soul, hip hop or funk set. Also, instrumentals that
would be gold for a producer looking for new beats to mine.
"Dub Head": These
are tunes for Dub heads...strictly DUB a MATIC!
