Second sampler produced by Brixton Records and a small taste of what the label was doing in 2003. Focused basically in old school ska and rocksteady this album also opens to the roots rockers dub reggae The cover (as happened in Brixton Cats & the Rudies) is inspired by the famous "Brixton Cat" album from the mid 60’s and the music is the result of mixing a new generation of reggae musicians with the old school vibrations.

Traditional afro- Jamaican ska-jazz with the great Dave Hillyard & the Rocksteady 7 from New York; early reggae with Proyecto Secreto from Belgium; rocksteady with The Starlites and The Slackers from New York; boogaloo-ska with "La Thorpe Brass" from Catalunya ; Ambassah meets Dub Generation a project leaded by "Dubby" along with countless guests and the beat of one of the most restless percussionists of the roots scene; ska soul with Akatz from Bilbao; roots rockers with BDF-Basque Dub Foundation from Bilbao-London; Load & Lone the incarnation of Roberto Sanchez and Borja Juanco from A-Lone studio.

A selection of bands doing different Jamaican styles but with one common thing: "every and each band respects reggae and loves it".
