Brimstone Sounds presents "Big Tunes Volume 20: Love is Lovely!" Reggae fans can get excited about this absolute gem. A compilation of the best Jamaican lovers rock tunes from 1977 to present day vibrations.
KingstonToLA caught up with Selecta Crown, owner of Brimstone Sounds, to learn more about the latest version of Big Tunes, a smashing reggae-dancehall mix that lives up to its name. This installment has been 10 years in the making, which shows the diligence that precedes these big tunes. Dem heavy. Selecta Crown recently took the time to perfect the 43 track mix, with precision.
Describing the mix, Selecta Crown says, "It's pure niceness seamlessly blended to fashion an 80-minute continuous flow; to elevate the love and positivity in your 360. Mixed with two Technics 1200 turntables and a Rane 61 mixer with Serato DJ; all manually mixed,"
In other words, Selecta Crown isn't using the auto-sync button. Now let that sink in:
"I was inspired to produce this mix cause we living in a time where we surrounded by fuss, fight, division and bad mindedness. One thing that transcends all this madness is the love that we all feel for another, at some point or time during this creation trod."
Top tunes on "Love is Lovely" include "Come Again Tonight" by Beres Hammond. "No one like Beres to build that smoothed out, soulful and sexy vibe," says Selecta Crown, "Anything For Your Love" by Bushman, "the voice, the riddim; well tuff in its simplicity," "I Am Still In Love" by Alton Ellis, "live instrumentation never sounded so crisp; harmonies on point and Alton's voice is almost haunting," "Never Find" by Jah Cure "lyrics sweeter than tupelo honey," "Give Me A Try" from Sizzla Kalonji, "the stripped down beat is wicked and Kalonji comes more than correct with the lyrical fire," says Selecta Crown.
Selecta Crown is also a master of his works as an etho-botanist, producing natural products from CBD Salve. The products range from shampoo to face cream and is aptly named Blessed Botanicals. Check it out!
