If you enjoyed that documentary, maybe you'd like The Get-Down by Baz Luhrmann, a series taking place in the same era and place. Episode 4 features that infamous blackout, btw. The first half-season was great, then it all went downhill and got cancelled, like a good number of the best series.

There you go Ranks, and yes the similarity to Biggie Smalls voice is not news.

Not bad but the riddim has been hip hopized.

Cap, yea the music was pretty good, I actually was browsing the Ghetto Brothers CD a few years back before the documentary and just put it on the back burner but after I watched I bought and it's a delight, especially this tune right here... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c0SaAJzm4oo check for the rhythm change up at the 1:52 mark, and then the chorus, killer!

Ranks, yea it was an easy one, I can think of a bunch of tunes that sample reggae but full on rhythms require a bit more digging...in the meantime https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bA8wD7Zj2tE

Cap, yes I believe it is Strange Things, though it's obvious after you mention it, but I am familiar with this particular cut/dub either from one of the Prince Far-I dub sets on Pressure Sounds or from another dub set perhaps by Phil Pratt, can't quite recall. I'm sure someone will help me out.
