Reggaeville live at Summerjam 2011

Next weekend it’s once again time for Summerjam!
For the 26th time the festival taking place in Cologne welcomes the cream of the crop in reggae music from A as in Alpha Blondy to Z for Ziggy Marley.
Dancehall is represented by Busy Signal, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry takes care of dub and classics are delivered by artists like Jimmy Cliff.
For all those of you, who can’t make it to the festival just like for the visitors, that want to take another look at the event Reggaeville will be reporting straight from the island in lake Fühlinger: videos, photos, exclusive backstage coverage and interviews, promptly and all weekend long!
I too will be at the festival hopefully meeting many artists for a little chat in front of my camera. So check our website and watch me reporting backstage from one of the biggest reggae festivals in Europe!

Countryman & Righteous Riddims are ‘Top Rankin’, 11.06.11

When he’s going to visit Rotown’s Astakneipe on June 11th the ‘man from the country’ is surely carrying only the best music with him. For the so-called 90s Specialist that doesn’t mean strictly reggae from the century he got started spinning the turntables but anything bringing joy and entertainment. Many years experience as a DJ and sound man characterize Countryman as well as his numerous visits to Jamaica. Playing alongside the residents of Righteous Riddims means not only Lower meets Upper Bavaria but also a trailer load of good Caribbean music for the reggae and dancehall fans – or what we call simply ‘Top Rankin’!
