As CBAA’s Radio’s Roots’n’Reggae Show playlist makes clear each week, Australia is certainly not free of the virus itself. Having combed the world for the latest soundsystem favourites, the program bounces between classic ‘foundational’ tracks and newer releases, charting dubtronica to ska.
Each show presents a dense web of space delay, hooks pon de off-beat, and ever-present bass, punctuated with anecdotes about each artist, track or scene visited. We asked the host of the program for the last 10 years, Sista Selecta, about its origins and her love of this musical ecology as the show moves to the Community Radio Network.
