Here you go then, some massive end of year reggae vibrations for you in the shape of Dubmatix and Al Pancho’s huge Rock And Sway which channels a seventies reggae vibe and seems to employ, alternately, both rockers and steppers’ rhythms while doing so. It’s a magic formula which imbues the track with no small amount of energy and not its only secret weapon either. The other is the fact that it swerves the minor key melody typical of seventies reggae going for a major key instead and is all the better for it as Al Pancho holds forth in full voice over the top. Comes in original flavour, dub flavour and riddim-on-its-own flavour to make sure you get the choice of rocking and swaying in the way best suited to you. Cheers D and AP!
