Elephant Soundsystem Reggae Radioshows

Why is it the Lock it Down Posse is so crazy about Reggae? Is it the versatility in tropical riddims, the do-it-yourself attitude, the incredible creativeness of sound manipulation inspite of financial limitations, is it the message of faith & love, carried within the music, which infacto makes it gospel or is it the voice of protest and resistance against whatever oppression. We love Jamaican music and it the impact of such a small island on the musical universe cannot be overstated. Infact, we love it so much we make radioshows about it. Every second wednesday we do a reggae radioshow for, playing 2 hours, from ska to rocksteady to roots, to dancehall, digital, new roots and topped with a little bit of dubstep. Expect classics & rarities, lots of stuff you won't find on no re-issue compilations! We're not the greatest radio personalities or djs ever, but we love the music, which I think also reflects very strongly in the shows. Do It Yourself that is. Did I Mention we love Jamaican Music?
