i once posted an article on dissensus asking for hardcore classics recommendations (http://www.dissensus.com/showthread.php?9738-hardcore-classics) and got an immense response that got bigger and bigger. lots of amazing tunes were discovered that way. thanks to the people who contributed!

now i have another genre to ask about - "deep" dub / dancehall / digi
the kind of stuff rhythm&sound use to play with tikiman for example (they are obviously not the only reference point, just the only one i know quite well). wackies/basic replay are such labels, r&s people are behind the whole reisssueing.
mostly versions, stuff without mcs, deep, dark, echoing. no banging bashment stuff.
you know.

a couple of examples

With regard to the Anthony Red Rose one you posted, must be something in the air at the moment cos all I been listening to - inspired by swears digging up the Run Down The World riddim - is this :

http://www.discogs.com/Various-The-Revenge-Of-King-Jammys-Super-Power-All-Stars-Volume-2/release/1528560

the first CD is excellent for all that early digital stuff.

check out the two Macro Dub Infection compilations Kev Martin put out through Virgin - lots of stuff that's only just dub (Coil and the like) but a lot of tunes that fit your somewhat odd request...

check most dub made outside Jamaica, I think, and especially by electronic/non-reggae musicians....

check out the Lead With The Bass compilations Zion Train released - the cream of that 90s digidub steppers sound - Disciples, Iration etc etc etc... wonderful..


for that sort of thing, there's anything involving Dougie Wardrop, Rootsman, Vibronics, Power Steppers..

for something a little more electronic / less "roots", the Hi Fidely Dub Companion series (6 albums?) have some gems among some coffee table nonsense. Especially the mighty Butch Cassidy Sound System

Consious Sounds compilations from the 90s.

There is some threads for all the styles you mention too.
