Compilation of mostly mellow & soulful Reggae songs from Jamaica - and a bit of steels drums and Boogaloo thrown in for good measure. I made this compilation after Caribbean Soul, an old mixtape from Lars Vegas (with special guidance by Dagmar ''Dig A Little Deeper'' - who introduced me to a lot of good & new music through her record shop ''Dig A Little Deeper'' - first in Cologne - and later in Berlin). Hopefully this post marks the return to updating this blog more regularly. I'm not making lofty promises, but I would love to be more active on the site! Stay tuned & enjoy this mellow breeze of of Caribbean Soul, Summer & Sunshine!

    1. Hi "Anonymous"... Thanks for your comments. Seems like some of your comments landed in my spam folder. Haven't figured out yet how get them out of the spam folder...

      Where am I? Currently I am living and working in Chengdu/China.

      And yes... this blog isn't dead yet... I am still planning on posting a few mixes and compilations. Hopefully soon...
