Let Kabaka Pyramid and me take you on a tour throughout some beautiful spots in Munich from the English Garden to river Isar, while you still find out what’s new, what’s good, and what’s loud in reggae and dancehall these days. The latest episode of Wha’ Gwaan Munchy?!? shows TOK turning up Chiemsee Reggae Summer, why Patrice’ alarm clock is set for 5am in Munich, and how Damian Marley raptured the Rototom massive at his only Europe performance. We introduce the newcomers Pentateuch and take a look at their music video for Kingston. Plus Kabaka Pyramid reveals the experience of his festival tour, his newest clip Worldwide Love, and his favourite football team.
With Kabaka Pyramid on the cover the newest edition of Riddim presents itself in stores now. Issue 69 offers not only a deep portrait of the reggae revivalist, but also interesting background stories on Alborosie, Ken Boothe, or Pentateuch. My series on producers features the Swiss Weedy G Soundforce.
