Jamaican Wedding Stilo March, 2013! My wife and I recently attended our friends' wedding in Little Bay, Jamaica where the weather was just right, the water refreshing, and the company even better.

On the Sunday, the day after the glorious nuptials, guests hopped on a shuttle that was headed to Negril for a three-hour catamaran tour of the coast. The groom asked me if I wanted to put something together for the boat ride, so I came up with this (it's a little rushed and choppy as I was packing for the trip at the same time). Unfortunately, the boat didn't have the proper cables to attach to the on-board sound system. Oh, well. 

Here's that mix, anyway, raw and full of funshine tracks that even your folks would enjoy, ending with one of my all-time favourite Lovers Rock jams by Gregory Isaacs.
