Reggae x Dub | BEN SIMS presents BACK TO THE ROOTS (VOL ONE)

Here’s something most people don’t know about me: I really dig reggae, dancehall, roots, and dub. I don’t love it as much as I love house, but I really do enjoy the vibe I get from partying to reggae and trying my hand at dancehall moves.

For a long time, I would stay up till 4am watching reggae x african music videos on VH1 Soul’s “Island Soul.” Does that still come on? If so, then I’ve got some catching up to do!

With that being said, listening to this reggae & dub mix from Ben Sims has really got me in the mood to check out a popular reggae club in DC, Patty Boom Boom.

The mix is a 50-track dub & roots mix that is a part of the Essex Rascals Podcast. 

So without further ado, I encourage you to vibe to some roots:
