In Jamaica, authentic reggae is one of the biggest sources of income. While the quality of Reggae records produced in Jamaica took a turn for the worse following the oil crisis of the 1970s, reggae produced elsewhere began to flourish. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, the UK punk rock scene flourished, and reggae was a notable influence. Three reggae-tinged singles from the Police's 1978 debut album, Outlandos d'Amour, laid down the template for the basic structure of a lot of rock/reggae songwriting: a reggae-infused verse containing upstrokes on guitar or keyboards and a more aggressive, on-the-beat punk/rock attack during the chorus.

a collaboration between veteran musician/producer Mackadub and London based label Greenbeat Music. It’s a display of talent both young and old and really shows the depth of Mackadub’s musical dimension.

The European distributor for black music, Walboomers Music, puts out its first CD entitled "Authentic Roots Reggae". The company is very active and it's praiseworthily that they have teamed up with the Builders Music Company to release their products. Builders Music Company was formed in 1996 in Kingston by Diavalla (Dia) Fearon. The main purpose is to output the creativity of the organizer, expose new talents and promote positive consciousness. Their motto says : "Making Positive Music For Life". The label got its full recognition in 1999 when they released a riddim called "Grabber". It did extremely well for the label and even got three number one songs in Trinidad : Determine's Go Through That, Anthony B's Rally Round and Louie Culture's If A No So. They have released two previous albums : 'The Warrior' by Dia and 'Skaggae' by Jah D.
'Authentic Roots Reggae' consists of 15 vocal tracks and 5 dubs. Featured here are 5 original riddims : "Chanter" (tracks 1-4 and 16), "Reggae Music" (tracks 5, 6 and 17), the aforementioned "Grabber" (tracks 7-10 and 18), "Compact" (tracks 11-13 and 19) and finally "School" (tracks 14, 15 and 20). The up-tempo "Chanter" riddim makes a decent impression and some well known artists like Luciano and Mikey General ride the riddim with passion and fire. Cocoa Tea, Determine and Cudjoe deliver a noteworthy tune across the "Reggae Music" riddim, whilst Yaba Conscious' style on Reggae Music is reminiscent of the dub poet style of the early 80s. The heavy "Grabber" riddim starts with Anthony B's hit single Rally Round followed by Louie Culture, who puts out one of his best efforts with If A No So, but Determine's cut Go Through That is heavenly ! Next come three pieces across the "Compact" riddim, a slow-paced and melodic flavored riddim with excellent versions by Norris Man -Stop Your Lying and Jah Is The Answer by the combination Dia & Louie Culture. Finally Yami Bolo steps up to perform the wailing Stop The Blood Shed, followed by the unknown Goldie Natch who sings about the rude bwoys in Hey Rudie. The addition of the instrumental versions at the end of the album adds something extra to this excellent album.
"Authentic Roots Reggae" is a splendid roots reggae compilation set.
