Editors’ Notes Oneness Records' "Reggaeville Riddim" inspires soulful roots jams here. It's less retro than classic—a roots reggae river that flows lazily along with upstroke guitar, thick bass, crisp live drums, and hypnotic brass. On "Reggae Village," Perfect takes the title literally, bigging up the old-school artists who made his childhood home feel like an actual Reggaeville. Morgan Heritage looks backward, decrying the "satellite eyes" that constantly monitor the "Modern Man." Later, brilliantly named DJ Umberto Echo turns the song on its head with a dub remix that chases the past with 21st-century effects.
