PRESS RELEASE : 

Ragga Ragga Ragga 2012, the annual hardcore dancehall series from Greensleeves, pays homage to UK's dancehall scene.
The compilation features top hits from British emerging artists (Gappy Ranks, Stylo G and Lea Anna) as well as Jamaica's leading dancehall stars (Popcaan, I-OctaneMavado...). This year's edition also contains a bonus DVD focusing on the UK's dancehall scene and interviews with its key players plus seven music videos of breaking tracks from artists like Popcaan, Tommy Lee, Masicka and Lea Anna.
Jamaican reggae has given a voice to people of all backgrounds around the world and since an influx of Jamaican citizens emigrated to the UK from the 1950’s onward, the music has affected British culture. In the 1970’s, reggae's freedom fighting songs quickly resonated with the rebel spirit of the UK's punk audience and eventually evolved into England's mainstream culture. Reggae helped spawn the country's subgenres like dubstep, grime, drum 'n' bass as well as UK dancehall. The dancehall scene in Britain is now setting the trend for the genre as a whole. Ragga Ragga Ragga 2012 will feature the UK's most popular club anthems as well as the chart-topping Jamaican tunes and tracks gaining momentum in Kingston's dancehalls.

Watch freestyle from the album's feature artists Gappy Ranks, Stylo G, Lea Anna on BBC 1Xtra hosted by Robbo Ranx :
