Reggae music has strong roots in American Soul. If you listen to any old roots reggae records from artists like Lee "Scratch" Perry, U-Roy, The Wailers, etc you can hear elements of R&B and Soul. Bob Marley himself referenced Soul artists like James Brown, Curtis Mayfield and Marvin Gaye as influences. From the picture above you can see he had collaborated with Stevie too.
This musical melting pot is the concept behind my latest mixtape called: Soulclash Hi-Fi. This mix of Reggae tunes, re-edits, covers and remixes is rooted in Soul with an island vibe. Official CD release w/ cover art will be available soon. Stay tuned.
