Stix Records is a sub-division of Favorite Recordings specializing in the exercise of producing covers with a reggae twist. Acclaimed in 2013 with a first official single by Taggy Matcher & Birdy & Nixon, quickly followed by the first volume of the Disco Reggae (STIX 035LP) compilation, Stix is back in 2014 with a scorching Disco Reggae Volume 2. Following the success of its first volume, the Disco Reggae series also expands with this nine-track compilation, composed with eight new and exclusive versions by artists such as Taggy Matcher, 7 Samuraï, Mato, and John Milk, and the classic cover of "Tainted Love" by Grandmagneto. But this time, while they still explored famous hits like "Watermelon Man" by Herbie Hancock or "Happy" by Pharrell Williams, they also dug within the home label's catalog, taking over some of the finest titles by Mr. Day, Lee McDonald, Lucas Arruda and The Joubert Singers. Once again, their swaying renditions seem straight out of the smoky studios of Kingston or Montego Bay, while also remembering the '80s pop-reggae sound of artists like Grace Jones or the less-famous Earons. Everything was mastered and cut at Carvery Records (UK), known for their expertise in Caribbean and disco music.
