Andy Smith's Trojan Document

I’ve been a fan of Andy Smith’s previous Document outings – taking some a mix of the rare, the classic and the contemporary and throwing them all into a modern day mix. For his latest outing, he’s gone Jamaican, plundering the Trojan back catalogue for Andy Smith Presents Trojan Document.

To quote from Mr Smith’s website: "This release presents another mix album first – with Andy giving the listener a live sound system experience complete with rewinds, shout outs and reverb sounds. The Trojan Document takes you on a journey from early Ska, Rocksteady, Roots, Dub, DJ tracks and Dancehall – it’s set to be yet another class."

Which all sounds very promising. Not heard it myself as yet, but if you nip over to Andy Smith’s website you can hear some audio clips.

And if you want to buy it, the album is available from Monday 26th June on mix CD and unmixed double vinyl. Full tracklisting if you click "continue".
