Smoke Notes

When you consider how much of New Zealand pop music is currently influenced by reggae or dub it seems strange that this type of compilation hasn't been done sooner. Subtitled "the awakening of the Aotearoa roots movement", this set comprises a mixture of classic roots reggae (Unity Pacific, Cornerstone Roots, Katchafire), reggae/dub fused with contemporary pop and dance music (Black Seeds, Salmonella Dub), deep hip-hop and soul influenced works (Fat Freddy's Drop, Che Fu), and beautiful raw roots based rock (TrinityRoots, Kora). The resulting album achieves two important goals - 1) provides the casual listener with an ideal window into not only the "roots" inspired world of New Zealand pop music, but also some of this country's finest music makers, and 2) gives us a perfect summer selection of some quite beautiful and outstanding music. So even if you aren't a reggae or dub fan, I suggest you check this quality set out anyway (great artwork too I must say), within you will find some of the finest and most soulful pop music currently being made in Aotearoa. Highly recommended.
