For this Studio One release we return to the roots of Reggae music-The Soundsystem. Throughout the late 1950s and 1960s Soundsystems played throughout the city of Kingston, Jamaica. As well as Sir Coxsone's Downbeat Soundsystem other famous Soundsystem operators included Duke Reid (the Trojan), Prince Buster, Tom the Great and King Edwards. These Soundystems were the birthplace of much of Jamaica's musical culture - Soundclashes, Dancehall and the idea of the Toaster who sang over records the DJ. Studio One DJs (compiled by Mark Ainley) is the next in the series of releases where Soul Jazz Records are showcasing the music of Studio One, the label that literally defines Reggae.
Vinyl release of Various Artists - Studio One Dj's. Released through SOUL JAZZ and available on 2LP.
