Riddimentary – Diplo Selects Greensleeves

According to various sources (Pitchfork, XLR8, etc) Diplo is due to release a reggae/dub compilation early next year. This is slightly different to the mixtapes he has put out over the last couple of years. After being allowed access to the Greensleeves label back catalogue, the results of his exploration can be heard in the form of ‘Riddimentary’.

Not only are there plenty of household names making appearances on the tracklisting (Eek-a-Mouse, Lone Ranger, Prince Far I, Gregory Isaacs etc), but Diplo has inclulded a few personal favourites of my own too (a coincidence, obviously)…
