#Reggae

Staring the devil right in the face. ‘FEAR. NO. EVIL’ greets us with a sweet Champion riddim, reminiscent of the eighties, where the Maryland (US) born artist cast any negative entity aside, through a toe-curling soulful falsetto, encouraging others to stand up against obstacles of any form.
The Upsetter. Lee Perry was a key figure within a group of artists who would create a sound unique to Jamaica called reggae and its sub-genre “dub” reggae. Artists in Jamaica were combining elements of popular 1950s and early 1960s music—from rhythm and blues, rocksteady, ska, jazz horn sections and West African drumming—to offer a new distinct sound.
Soulful, (en)chanting, edgy. "Wild and Free" is not 'yet another riddim release' as they are being released left and right these days, but a full-blown release of original material, and as such a true representative of what is being dubbed as #NewRoots.
A new installment of a classic. Dub-Stuy Records released an update to the iconic Answer riddim, bringing back the vibes right in time for summer. They have taken on one of the most iconic and instantly recognizable riddims in history with “Answer 2021 Riddim”. As usual, Dub-Stuy calls upon an international line-up of top features, led by legendary duo Luciano & Mikey General, Spain’s Sr Wilson and Jonny GoFigure.
Blazing ahead out of the African Odyssey. The KAMPALA FIRE EP, showcasing a selection of strictly Ugandan tracks from the album: Roots Reggae, Dancehall, and Hip Hop from one of the most energetic and original music scenes on the continent.
Deep into roots. Singer-songwriter Jonathan Emile, born in Quebec of Jamaican origins, delves deep into his roots with his first reggae album, Spaces-In-Between, released on Montreal record label MindPeaceLove. Spaces-In-Between stands out as the first Quebec production to be distributed by the legendary distribution company founded by Bob Marley, Tuff Gong International.
