  Diplo Selects Greensleeves

   Riddimentary


Riddimentary


Wesley Pentz, aka Diplo - one half of the production team behind the popular hybrid reggae project Major Lazer and MIA 'Paper Planes' lends his eclectic ear and considerable talents as a reggae selector to Riddimentary, a guided tour through 15 classic tracks from the Greensleeves reggae catalogue.

The continuous blended mix covers twenty plus years of cutting edge, Jamaican and UK hits from the top producers in dub, reggae and dancehall from the 1980s & 90s. The retro flavor and historical context of these selections shines a light on Diplo's production influences and expert knowledge of the reggae genre. For new converts to reggae or collectors of crucial tracks from reggae's classic era, Riddimentary is rudimentary. A selection of the tracks is available on the limited edition Riddimentary vinyl LP from VP/ Greensleeves Records.
