Echoes - August Issue, 2023
Leading London reggae label and sound system Reggae Roast and Kenny Smyth - a Jamaican singer of great talent and promise - are the main reggae features in this month's Echoes. My thanks to both Kenny and RR's James Harper for their time and patience in giving such insightful, informative interviews and above all else, for the music.
Tippa Irie's autobiography Stick To My Roots, published by Jacaranda Books, is the subject of August's Vibes column whilst Buju Banton's Born For Greatness heads the Reggae Album Reviews, closely followed by new sets from Akae Beka, Mungo's Hi Fi and Luciano. Finally, check Run The Track for the latest singles by Idris Elba, Toddla T & General Levy, Shaggy, Christopher Martin, Hollie Cook, Capleton, Jah Sun and the Africa Unite posse, among others.
