Rating : (1 to 5 stars)

Finland isn't exactly a country that one instantly associates with Reggae music. However, there have been several people like for example the late reggae ambassador Tero Kaski who have played an important role in bringing Jamaican music to this part of the world. In recent years Finnish reggae artists have emerged on the scene with Lightman being a new name definitely worth checking out. "Musical Documentation" is the first release from this multi-talented instrumentalist, who plays every instrument on this notable 7" single. Although it sounds like "old skool" music reminiscent of the works of Augustus Pablo it surely has a contemporary vibe. "Musical Documentation" is a well produced instrumental piece that benefits from its warm bass and soulfoul melodies from the heart. On the flipside you'll find a more dub oriented version of the same riddim. Hot sounds from the northern part of Europe!
