Two great young talents are gracing the cover of the latest issue of the Riddim magazine as both Konshens and Romain Virgo just presented their new albums to the world. Their approach to global yard pop is one of the topics of the 92nd edition that also includes more interesting stories from the likes of David Rodigan, Bobby Digital and Micah Shemaiah. I contributed a review of Koffee’s latest single Raggamuffin in the Riddim Check.
It was quite a bomb that dromped when superstars Shaggy and Sting announced to be working on an album together. 44 to 876 is the title of the surprising record ready to be released on April 20. How they got together, what the extraordinary songs and lyrics inspired, and who the better pool player is, is what they told me in an in-depth Skype interview that is now to be read on Reggaeville.
