Different Rhythm welcome not one but two guest DJs for a very special Easter Sunday throwdown in the Shaw. We have Roots Factory and Groovalizacion selector Brigadier JC joining us from his adopted home town of Barcelona, while TAMARA Maravliha drops in from Brazilia to bring some South American heat to the occasion.

He runs (and produces for) a reggae record label called Roots Factory based in the UK that got featured on the BBC as the Best of British Reggae.
