Wha’ gwaan Munchy?!? got the Italian flavor with Alborosie being the guest of the latest episode. Straight from the Shengen Studio in Kingston, Puppa Albo and I are bringing to you the latest news on the Journey To Jah feature documentary and the first staging of the Blue Mountain Music Festival. We present brand new albums such as Addis Pablo’s debut In My Father’s House and find out about upcoming releases by King Jammy. And of course, we speak about the Shengen Don’s works: the recent tour, a new job as a radio host and dub in every aspect!
Who is the most popular artist 2013? Which sound system rocked the dancehalls in the past year? And what album did the massive favor the least? Those and more questions are answered by the Reader’s Poll in the latest issue of the Riddim magazine, that is now available in stores or with the convenient subscription. Also the best Reggae-Website was to be selected and 36,2 % of the voters decided it was Reggaeville. For the fourth time we made it to first place in this category, a result that leaves us happy and very grateful for the appreciation. Additionally the edition features a comprehensive story on the great Barrington Levy, news on Raging Fyah and a Junior Murvin obituary. For my series on producers I spoke to Wayne “Unga” Thompson about the ways and its entanglements that lead to Notice Productions.
