Straight from the island: Riddim #79

For the second time the editors of Riddim magazine present an entire issue ‘made in Jamaica’ – researched, inspired by, and written on the island. I also used my three months in the Caribbean to dig up fascinating stories for the massive at home and experienced some exciting adventures myself while doing so. For the interview with fellow sound engineer Greeg Morris I got to visit Bob Marley’s legendary Tuff Gong Studios for my first time ever. Dexta Daps and I discovered to be secret and yet unknown twins as we are both born on January 12. And for my story on vegan and health food I followed my taste and appetite around the city of Kingston. Also worth a read and surely enjoyable are the stories on former mad man and now superstar Gully Bop, young old schooler Yung J.R and Dr K’nife’s thoughts and ideas on the decriminalization of ganja in Jamaica.
