Legendary British broadcaster and sound clash DJ David Rodigan will helm the next edition of Ministry of Sound's Masterpiece mix album series. Set to drop at the beginning of next year, the three-disc collection is said to map the reggae icon's decades-long musical journey, "starting with his initiation into the sounds of '60s British pop and American soul, and passing through four decades of the evolution of Jamaican music in all its guises: ska, rocksteady, reggae, dub, dancehall, and the new roots revival." Before Rodigan's contribution to the Masterpiece series sees an official release on January 27, the collection's artwork and complete tracklist can be found below.
