United for Riddim #85

Many have joined forces and fused energies for the benefit and progress of Reggae music. There are not just Gentleman and Ky-Mani Marley with their project Conversations, but also the mutually ever inspiring Jah9 and Akae Beka or Zion I Kings and I Grade Records. All of them are highlighted in the new issue of Riddim magazine, as well as others, that started to walk on solo paths, like Seeed member Dellé who drops his own album “Neo” and Kaas of Die Orsons, who went to Jamaica to record an EP not with the group but the Jugglerz. I took a close listen to the latest producer album “Smile Jamaica” by Silly Walks Discotheque and added some words to the annual festival guide.
