The Upsessions – “You Done Me Wrong” mp3

Dutch reggae ska lovers The Upsessions have been slingin’ their own take on early Jamaican pop music since 2005. In that time they’ve amassed an impressive little discography and put on a lot of well received shows in Europa. Here’s one of their studio cuts, a personal fave of mine called “You Done Me Wrong.” Love that bubblin’ organ and be warned – the chorus might stay with you for daze!

The Planet Smashers feat. Neville Staple – “Explosive” mp3

Montreal, Canada’s own ska heroes The Planet Smashers, rockin’ it with Neville Staple (yes the Neville Staple) on a killer anthem whose mission is no less than to save the world. It’s a worthy cause this ska doggie can support. Two paws up!

The Uptones – “Get Out Of My Way” mp3

The classic Berkeley punk ska anthem from my favorite band. The Uptones used to open their set with it back when I was a puppy. I play the recording whenever I’m stuck in traffic. Do ska doggies drive cars? But yes. Ska doggies can do anything.

The Rudimentals – “Big Boss” mp3

The Rudimentals – “Big Boss” mp3

Rudimentally speaking, “Big Boss” by The Rudimentals is some big boss sounds about a big boss. Tight, well arranged horns bust a soulful ska line and the riddim section mashes it ‘tup old skool style, all backing a slew of great vocal lines. Plus a wikkid trombone solo, for extra ska flavour. Pick it up!
