Sie gelten als die berühmteste Rhythmus-Section in der Geschichte des Reggae, dieser jamaikanische Schlagzeuger Lowell Dunbar alias SLY & der ebenfalls aus Jamaika stammende Keyboarder und Bassist Robert Shakespeare alias ROBBIE, weil es niemanden außer ihnen gelang, mit solcher Perfektion jamaikanischen Reggae, amerikanischen Rhythm‘n‘Blues und britischen Soul zu einem einzigartigen tanzbaren Mix zu vereinen.

There are no words for how magnificent this collection is – eight solid Taxi discomixes that dig into the studio’s late seventies fascination with American soul and disco, spreading out across “Fever” (Marcia Griffiths), “Break Your Promise” (Barry Biggs), “Show and Tell” (Ken Boothe),“Could It Be I’m Falling in Love” (Home T-Y) and “Inner City Blues” (Delroy Wilson)…. So titles and artists alone let you know what you’re in for, and with “Rainy Night,” at a mere 6.54, the shortest track in sight, you can imagine the rest. Or feel it in the pit of your stomach.

Present Taxi Gang In Disco Mix Style 1978-1987 CREE. CD/DL/LP Sublime Sly & Robbie pop reggae and lovers rock mixes.

The latter's take on Fever is slinky and jazz-tinged, although Griffiths is

Maybe it’s just me, but it’s impossible to hear a reggae retake of “Rainy Night in Georgia” without Prince Buster’s “Big Five’ leering its way into the room. But maybe not so much now, as Tinga Stewart turns in what we might call a more conventional cover… albeit one that is weighted down by the mighty Sly and Robbie, a terrific vocal take that edges ever so sweetly into a balls-out bullworking dub.

Når man siger Jamaica, siger man ofte også Bob Marley eller reggae. Men udover Bob Marley, så er der næppe nogen jamaicanske musikere, der er så internationalt kendte og anerkendte som d’herrer Sly Dunbar (trommer) og Robbie Shakespeare (bass).

The Riddim Twins gik sammen i midten af 1970'erne efter i nogle år at have arbejdet hver for sig som professionelle studiemusikere og er uden sammenligning de mest anvendte studiemusikere på reggaeøen.

Sly & Robbie Present Taxi Gang In Disco Mix Style 1978-1987 is a relatively short compilation chronicling the late ‘70s and ‘80s work of the most famous “riddim” section in reggae music. Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare’s work as producers was very influential in helping to create the sounds that Jamaican music would be known for during this period. Both Sly & Robbie got their start as sessions musicians (as a drummer and bass player, respectively) before moving over to the production side of things.
