Don’t overlook Reggae vinyl singles on 7″, 10″ and 12″ formats

Don’t overlook Reggae vinyl singles on 7″, 10″ and 12″ formats

By:
I where never huge on 45's and 10" or 12" singles. I feel they're for dj's and as a regular fan these formats are too inconvenient. I don't want to get up and change side or disc after every tune.There is however no doubt that these formats are still big within Reggae and anyone who does not embrac ...

Roots, Reggae, Rebellion (BBC)

Roots, Reggae, Rebellion (BBC)

By:
It's quite amazing when you think of it, the impact that Jamaica has had on it's former colonial master and the rest of the world. The seeds of this un-proportional influence was sown in the 50ies and 60ies when the Jamaican immigration to the UK started. Culturally BBC was seen as the enemy as they ...

Peter Hunningale – Remove the barriers (Vibes Central)

By:
Categories: Music, reggae
Im not a fan of Radio, it has potential to introduce folks to great music and artists they have not heard, yet they ruined it by just playing top-40 junk. There's always the exception though. The first time i heard "Peter Hunningale" was on "Choice FM" in London and I immediately fell in love with ...

Book report

By:
Categories: Graphic design, reggae
This could be the next big Reggae book to be published, the photo's in the preview shows a bunch of "flower power" like images that seem to be more "Haight Ashbury/San Fransico" than "Kingston/Jamaica" so that is a bit worrying. I will get it regardless once it's released and give y'all a thorough w ...

In Fine Style: The Dancehall Art of Wilfred Limonious (One Love Books)

Categories: Uncategorized
Limonious was not the only skilled illustrator who specialized in doing cover art for Reggae albums (i just love Jamal Peete's paintings) but he is by far the most prolific and important of the handful that exists. The sheer number of covers alone makes him an important part of the history of Reggae ...

I-Kong – Pass it on (Fruits Records/Vpal)

By:
Categories: Uncategorized
For the longest, artist "I-Kong" was one of Roots Reggae's "best kept secrets", he released an obscure album in the 70 ies that went for ridiculous sums (the few times it popped up) on Ebay and was only known by the hardcore fans. Somehow the buzz grew and the album, "The way it is" was re-released ...
