"Experimentalist music producer and remix mastermind Diplo teams up with Greensleeves Records to remix, reload and re-release some of Reggae’s greatest classics on Riddimentary – Diplo Selects Greensleeves. This 15-track compilation will bring selected Reggae anthems to new ears as Diplo infuses his unique genre-bending flavor into the mix. Known for his electronic dub musical styling and as one-half of world renowned production team Major Lazer, Thomas Wesley Pentz aka Diplo lends his eclectic ear and considerable talents as a Reggae selector to Riddimentary. The continuous blended mix covers over 20 years of revoluntionary Jamaican and UK hits from the top producers in Dub, Reggae and Dancehall from the 1980s and 1990s. The retro flavor and historical context of these selections shine a light on Diplo's production influences and expert knowledge of the Reggae genre. Choosing anthems such as "Night Nurse" by Gregory Isaacs, "Police In Helicopter" by John Holt, "Telephone Love" by J.C. Lodge and "Anarexol" by Eek-A-Mouse, Riddimentary sees Diplo not only selecting through the Greensleeves catalog but also placing his imprint on its legacy." GLEENSLEEVES BLOG
