Soulful dub/reggae

I’ve been enjoying these very soulful dub/reggae tracks lately.

Tunes like these:

For some reason they hit a little different than other dub or reggae tracks for me.
I feel like there’s this sweet spot, anyone that can point me in a direction for more? :slight_smile:

They´re all british 80´s stuff and lovers tunes so maybe direct your searches towards that. It´ll keep you busy for at least 10 years.

Really dig this stuff right now, nice cross-overs with the booming street soul sound. Heres a playlist of female vocal UK lovers rock: Spotify

Ooh, nice! Yes, the female vocals are often what kind of separates it from more ‘regular’ dub or reggae tracks.

Mix I did of tunes exclusively from the Roots Garden label.

Great mix by Clean Derek.

I don’t think you can get much smoother and more soulful than the great Sugar Minott:

More soul by a reggae artist than soulful reggae, but a beautiful song

I am thinking of making a thread to see what other recommendations for newer artists people have that fit the vibes i pasted above…

Wow, you been busy - 225 public playlists, nice! Any recommends?

I don’t know why I love this so much, but I do

When I first heard this in 96 it was mixed in with hiphop and I thought it was a goodie mob or outcast reggae outake hahaha, it’s got those southern gospel soul BVs… and then that soprano sax solo… :star_struck:
