Obscure new roots reggae artists??

Hi everyone,

Sitting here feeling bored of many of the same riddims and looking for some new vibes. Loving many of the "reggae revival" acts, but none of them are very prolific.

Anyone recently discover any new talent that you could share?

Not exactly new, but have you heard the Samory I album "Black Gold"? Good stuff!

obscure and reggae is a hard one to define... like what is obscure? Is Micah Shemaiah obscure?

I would consider anything from the DKR site obscure.its one of my favorite sites to get vinyl, there are sound samples for all the music including a little history behind the riddim.

Long story short, the guy owned a plastic plant and also loves old school roots reggae. So he decided to press what he personally liked. Tons of selection by artist and label.

What makes theses particular roots cuts obscure is that they are previously unreleased, only pressed once and sometimes found with no label. Many riddim runs, including 10” disco mixes

Might try some West African artists:

Mr. Eazi
Mayorkun
Patoranking

Or Eric Donaldson.

Ninja's suggestion of Micah Shemaiah is a good one.

that OKU is well wicked from what I've been hearing

But I say... Some Never Even Plant yet want to Reap,
If you run, be careful, try to look before you leap;
Took a little walk from my Vineyard...
Now I'm on my own
Now I'm left alone..

You all really nailed it, exactly what I was looking for.

Matches that Digikiller site is epic.
Ninja, I do see the irony in asking for suggestions of obscure reggae artists! I appreciate your effort.
Danny amazing suggestions.


Thanks everyone!
