Echoes - July 2022
Hollie Cook and the Chineke! Orchestra are the main reggae features in this month's Echoes. Hollie's latest album Happy Hour is the most fully realised of her career, whilst the Chineke! Orchestra have collaborated with the Marley Estate in producing a set of orchestrated Marley hits of considerable appeal, and that has integrity in abundance.
Toots Hibbert's daughter Leba, currently celebrating her latest album Into The Lights, is the subject of this month's Vibes column and we review albums from Dre Island, Clinton Fearon, Global Beats, Trojan and Dutch reggae dancehall artist Samora. Run The Track meanwhile, highlights new singles from Skeng, Skillibeng, The Yutes, Nattali Rize & Mike Love, Buju Banton, Sevana and Lila Ike, whose Wanted was produced by her mentor Protoje.
