Classic Disco Mix 15: REGGAE REVIVAL

When Ace Of Base launched their popular hits in All That She Wants (1992) and The Sign (1993). A lot of other similiar songs also came out using the same beats. Well, such trend was nothing new actually. I remember when Eric B Rakim or Milli Vanilli in the late 80s came out, there were so many other songs using the same beats. So was when Snap's The Power was released back in 1990.

I call these songs as "me too" products! But in Ace Of Base followers' case, it's rather different. Although there are a few 'quite' okay ones, I find most of them as cheap and uninovative attempts to ride along the success of the Ace Of Base hits. Not only the music is so basic, cover version and homogen, but some of the vocals were really so horrendous. That's why after releasing so many mixes all this time, I hardly play any of these songs (except those by Jessica Jay which I actually like). 

Nevertheless, my fanpage: Classic Disco Mix got some requests late last year to make a mixtape for the early 90's reggae hits that were very popular in Indonesia. And since the other djs refused to do them, I guess I'll make one mix to please these fans.

After carefully selecting each tracks and find a way to make them as interesting as I could, here is the final result. Well, I hope you can enjoy them, or at least appreciate my effort to please others here... He he hee... :)
