We dive into the stand-out grooves from reggae’s iconic rhythm section, featuring Dennis Brown, Gregory Isaacs and Junior Delgado.

Celebrating the iconic rhythm section that has shaped the sound of reggae and dancehall since the 70s, Kirk Degiorgio explores Sly and Robbie’s uncanny chemistry with the Taxi Gang crew, including such core members as synth man Robbie Lyn, Lloyd “Gitsy” Willis, Guilleaume “Stepper” Briard, and Herbie Harris. Over the next two hours, we discover Skin, Flesh and Bones, Denis Brown, Gregory Isaacs, Junior Delgado, and many more.
