Reggaeville at Chiemsee Reggae Summer 2011

An exciting festival saison 2011 found its end with the staging of Chiemsee Reggae Summer.
Visiting the event for the 13th time I took care of our Righteous Riddims dubplate studio as well as representing for HELP Jamaica! and of course once more reporting comprehensive and promptly as part of the Reggaeville-team.
Besides photos and reviews Anita and I were diligently interviewing artists such as Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Toots Hibbert and Ziggy Marley.
Get a bit of a foretaste with our usual Best Of spiced up with some live and festival impressions and watch the full coverage on Reggaeville and YouTube.

Ready fi di road – Righteous Riddims present Kabaka Pyramid

With bands like The Uprising Roots or Raging Fyah the prospering live roots scene in Jamaica has created quite a buzz over the past year.
Also hailing from this environment, Kabaka Pyramid is featured now on the newest artist mixtape by Righteous Riddims. The young artist from Kingston, Jamaica is an active part of the local hip hop and dancehall scene as a singer, rapper and producer and recently published the EP “Rebel Music”. About time for Righteous Riddims to introduce the highly talented artist to a wider audience with their new mix “Ready fi di road”.
The mix is now available on soundcloud, where you can also find other mixes from Rotown’s foundation sound.

Reggaejam Report 2011

Of course the Reggaeville team couldn’t miss out on Germany’s most popular festival, the Reggae Jam in Bersenbrück this summer.
With photos, live footage and reviews all fans at home had the chance to follow the festival promptly and even now there’s still a lot to watch, hear and read on the event on Reggaeville.
Together with Anita I was busy backstage trying to get as many artists as possible in front of the camera for a little chat. In the end we did 26 interviews that you hopefully enjoy watching.
Those of you who want to warm up still can watch our Best Of right here – the complete interviews are as usual on Reggaeville or on our YouTube channel.
