On November 26th, Mexico City will see a conference about “Jamaican music & its evolution” with Adrian Sherwood (UK), DJ Rupture (USA) and Ricardo Guzmán (Mexico). Find more information on the event on the La Family Dub blog.

In the meantime, witness the current state of the genre over at the Mad Decent blog where Paul Devro posted the latest output of Jamtech Foundation featuring Voltage “Park the 9″:

Also make sure to have a look at Generation Bass´ take on the “post dancehall era”:

… there’s a new generation of people who are starting a new way in looking dancehall, more daring and mixing from dubstep, to ghettotech n’ grime to give a different approach to the genre …

even though I have to admit, the classic dancehall mix by Negativz they posted alongside some tunes by Caballo & The Mothafu Kings, Process Rebel & h0stile, still has the music that moves me the most:
