Trend Alert - Jamaican takeover / Usain Bolt vs.London

Jamaica is going to explode. And not just out the blocks this summer. The vibe has been building since the 30th anniversary of Bob Marley's death last year. Next week the documentary Marley is released (see previous post) and there is a definite upsurge in reggae samples and re-mixes (heard loads on the Craig Charles Funk and Soul show, with Sam Redmore and The Reflex putting out some awesome re-mixes).

Then, of course, the second most famous man to come out of Jamaica, takes centre stage in London this summer...
The worlds eyes and ears are on Jamaica this year, it's a good thing they look and sound so good.
