Dub Store Records’ compilation series mainly focuses on bringing together the very best heavyweight dancehall tunes from Jammys released during the digital phase of reggae music. “King Jammy’s Dancehall Part 2”, subtitled “Digital Roots & Hard Dancehall 1984-1991” contains fifteen serieus cuts from vocalists and deejays as well as five dub versions.

Just like Part 1, this second compilation gets started with the Crownprince of Reggae, Dennis Brown. The 1985 released lovers lament “History” shows that he’s able to handle the digi riddim in a totally satisfying way. Another example is the sizzling “Tracks Of Life”, which comes across a heavy digital remake of the Studio One classic “Swing Easy”. Dennis Brown’s opener is followed by Cornell Campbell’s beautifully sung “Nothing Don’t Come Easy” from 1987, a real killer and one of the most popular and rare tunes among record collectors. Another digi killer is Admiral Tibet’s “Victim Of Babylon”, voiced over a jaunty riddim with s rough and tough bassline. Obviously the Wailing Souls didn’t record that much in the digital dancehall era, but almost everything they did for King Jammy was well worth hearing. The compatibility of their time-honed harmonies and hard digital instrumentation is very surprising as can be fully experienced when listening to their big tune “Move On”.
