Echoes - August 2016
In this month's issue of Echoes I have an exclusive interview with Stephen Marley, telling the story of his latest album Revelation Part 2: The Fruit Of Life. I also interview Delroy "Pele" Hamilton from the group Raging Fyah about their new album Everlasting.
Elsewhere my monthly column Vibes celebrates forty years of reggae music at the Notting Hill Carnival - an occasion that coincides with Echoes' own 40th anniversary - whilst Run The Track includes the latest singles by Beenie Man, Busy Signal, Gyptian, Romain Virgo, Mavado and Dre Island, among others. Reggae Album Of The Month is Jah9's brilliant new set 9, and there are also reviews of albums by Max Romeo, Leroy Smart, Michael Prophet.
