My Selecta – Gappy Ranks ft Reggae Roast

Reggae Roast comes correct once again, this time joining forces with one of the UK’s leading Dancehall Stars Gappy Ranks. 

My Selecta is the latest single from Reggae Roast’s forthcoming More Fire! LP which features world-famous artists such as Horace Andy, Johnny Clarke, Mr WIlliamz & Soom T.

Gappy Ranks, a Dancehall Star in his own right has collaborated with UK legend Shy FX accumulating 10s of millions of streams. My Selecta is Gappy’s story of the influences that led to him becoming the sing-jay don he is today. Describing life as a kid growing up in West London the song depicts all the things that led Gappy on his musical journey.

The hard-hitting riddim from Reggae Roast samples the classic Rocksteady track Midnight Hour by the Silvertones from Trojan Records. Revamping the riddim with modern production techniques, a heavier dancehall baseline and live Sax from UB40s sax player Adriano Rossetti Reggae Roast have created a classic-sounding Reggae / Dancehall crossover track.

Reggae Roast has established itself as one of the UK’s leading Soundsystem and production outfits in the UK. Performing at major Festivals including Glastonbury, Outlook & Boomtown as well as touring with UB40 & Alborosie in 2022 Reggae Roast is at the forefront of the UK Reggae scene. 

Regularly championed by the likes of David Rodigan (1Xtra),  Huey Morgan (6 Music), Jo Wiley (Radio 2) and Ras Kwarme (Capitol Xtra) they have been pushing the boundaries of UK sound system music for over a decade.

Look out for future releases in the coming weeks, in the build-up to their Album launch in June!
