    you absolutely do not have to limit yourself to Roots
    I think you do have to limit yourself to roots because what you are asking for is very specific to 1970s Rastafarian Jamacia. You don't get that particular mode of consciousness and somatic affect, that mode of being, that set of notions concerning reality, anywhere else, which is why there has never been any music, not even Jamacian music, that is remotely similar. It's magical and intoxicating. Something amazing happened that was limited to that particular point, or that envelope, of spacetime.

    So even if you hear this



    Which I love and is sampled on a classic jungle record, you can hear the Englishness of it. It jumps out at you as a distinct quality.

    i feel like the uk stuff or the stuff that got popular in the uk has this production quality to it of stiffer/tighter-sounding drums, more digital modulation, just kind of a general sharpness/'sparkliness' compared to *roots* roots. would u say that's accurate?
    also idk it's a personal thing but lots of the stuff posted here doesn't feel as Triumphant as two sevens clash, or solid foundation. there's the judgement day mode ofc but idk that feels adjacent but subtly different?

    Yes it's sharper, brighter, more metallic and angular
