Inviting us to his yard in Kingston, Jamaica, Major Lazer’s Walshy Fire took the time to extensively revisit his personal history from digging vinyl and downloading on floppy disks to the present, his productions with Koffee and Tòke, Reggae Month, and realness and hype.
Creating music beyond the hype that lives on as a legacy has always been Duane Stephenson’s aim that he wants to achieve once more with his fourth studio album Exile To Dreadites, a record that bursts positive and encouraging messages despite all political, social and environmental circumstances. The singer joined Wha’ Gwaan Munchy?!? to describe the life in his community August Town as well as production flows and touring Africa. More new records are already out by Norrisman, Rocky Dawuni and Sly & Robbie vs Roots Radics while the international Reggae fraternity awaits Buju Banton’s return to the stage with the Long Walk To Freedom concert in Kingston on March 16. For Easter Europe can look forward to the Reggaeville Easter Special that will bring Marcus Gad, Alborosie and Christopher Martin to stages in Germany and the Netherlands.
