The 2011 poll is closed. Go here to find a round up of the Best Ska Rocksteady Early Reggae Album 2011 poll.

With the London International Ska Festival coming back in style, AND a new player called Rocking Steady (magazine, label, download store, booking agency) on the rise, AND The Specials continuing to play sold-out shows across the globe, 2011 was definitely a great year for many Ska people.

What about YOU? Which new music touched YOUR heart, body and soul? It’s time to have your say and vote.

in the name of all DESORDEN PÚBLICO members, I would like to send one million THANKS to all the real friends who voted for our album “Los Contrarios”..And of course, Vielen, Vielen Danke für JOE for giving us the chance to participate here.
We are really proud for such a huge number of votes and want to say that as someone mentioned in one message, “EVERY SKA or REGGAE Band that was abble to released their album, is a winner, there are a LOT of great bands with wonderful albums on this list. I know every member of DESORDEN has his own Top ten with bands like Selecter, Holly Cook, NY Ska Jazz Ensemble, Moon Invaders, Alpheus, Planet Smashers, Little Roy, Prince Fatty, Kevin Batchelor, Carlos Dingo , the Slackers,etc etc…We are real fans of all of them, we play their music on our own Radio Show, every saturday´s afternoon (Radio Pirata on: http://www.ateneofm.com)..We even trade cd´s with some record labels of the world, in order to spread the word of the International SKA and Reggae, for the Venezuelan audiences…All this is Beacuse WE LOVE SKA MUSIC!!! …Much Respect for all the people on this list!.. that´s the main reason because we are really PROUD and HAPPY for being here, among soooo many great bands.
Keep on Skanking!
