The Dreadlock Marley

The record collection of Brooklyn-bred DJ and producer E. Largo’s is deep and spans a broad range. His eclectic taste stretches from straight up Caribbean music including reggae, dancehall, lovers rock, dub, soca, and calypso to classic American soul, hip hop, R&B, soulful house, disco and boogie, and onward to jazz and rock. All these seemingly disparate sounds influenced and helped shape his style. Some of Emillio Largo’s reggae biggest influences are heard in this Bob Marley’s birthday tribute mix titled “The Dreadlock Marley”.

“I put this mix together on turntables with the intent of steering away from Bob’s more commercial tunes. I wanted to share more of his underground tunes from my collection.” – Emillio Largo
