Definition of UK digital is often defined new-roots, steppas thing more than dancehall. UK has its dancehall history but it got shrinked after 90s. I am not sure the reason UK reggae tend to go to Roots/Rebel side is because of that Jamaicans are migrant minority and were suffered or cold weather and dark and smokie atmosphere at London.
 Anyway here comes Dougie, Mr Conscious Sounds which is London's rampaging digital roots & dancehall label, we focus on his dancehall side of production which is computerized digital sound has unusual steps and sick bassline with a bit of roots manner and rudeboy edge. It is totaly large.
