DJ Camilo "Old School Reggae" (Mixtape, 1998)


Live from the Queens, this is DJ Camilo's Old School Reggae from 1998. Camilo's mix includes the classics like tracks from Johnny Osbourne, Shabba Ranks, Super Cat, Junior Reid, Foxy Brown, Tiger, Yami Bolo, Nardo Ranks, Barrington Levy, Tenor Saw, Yellowman, El General, Red Fox, and more. This isn't my favorite dancehall tape, but it's definitely got a good amount of joints and plays solid all the way through the mix. Depending on where you grew up and your age, the impact of dancehall might hit you differently, but these are the sounds of jams from my youth. Catch the vibes below...
