WWW, November 2008 - Brethren in Canada? Sure thing! It's not only the title of one of the tracks in this highly danceable mix of Jamaican, UK and Canadian Reggae, it's a statement of fact too.

Canada's Reggae history is almost as old as Reggae itself. When Jackie Mittoo settled down in Toronto in 1969, he was one of the first to introduce the music to the second largest country of the world.

He wasn't the last, either. Roots singer Willi Williams, for example, is another one. The list goes further and shows the long time relationship of Canada with Reggae Music.

Brethren in Canada? Of course!

The people behind the Toronto-based Dub Connection Podcast give us a few crucial Canadian Reggae tunes and combined them with some of the better works from Jamaica and the UK from roughly the early 1980's until now.

The result is a highly danceable mix of several styles of Reggae Music: Rub a Dub, Ragga, Dancehall, UK DUB, Roots, et cetera. Definitely not a mix-up without structure, definitely not a mix without quality.
