Tony's Coffee Time Picks #30


Older neighbour Tony shares some picks from his great music collection and his 30th playlist for Manchester Cares includes some absolute treats.

Listen to the mix here.


Matisyahu – Love Born

“Love Born” by singer-songwriter Matisyahu features the sickest lyrics that you ever did witness. “Love Born from pain is the real thing,” is the central lyric and chorus. The song melds a strong roots and dub reggae feel with a lyrical narrative that weaves through moments of pain and despair to the strength of pushing through and seeing the love within the struggle. 


Shabaka – Black Loyalist Parts 1 & 2

I came across the album “Black Loyalist” by chance recently, though it dates from 2007. The album features reggae vocal and instrumental songs with dub versions, and this is the title track. 

Nga Han (ft Big Mot) – Taken Away & Mama Africa  Nga Han from Jamaica teams up with Big Mot from Senegal. The song features wise intelligent insights over a deep hypnotic tune.
