Echoes, May 2024

Alborosie has an album out called Dub Pirate - a companion to his 2007 debut set Soul Pirate - but talks of future plans involving a reggae museum and state-of-the-art recording studio during this exclusive cover feature. He's joined in this month's Echoes by Bristol band Black Roots, whose founder member Jabulani Ngozi explains the reasoning behind tracks on their latest album Roots, whilst the subject of Vibes is Black Uhuru's Live At Soledad Prison 1982, which Tabou 1's Guillaume Bougard likens to Johnny Cash's epic performance at Folsom Prison.

Reggae Album Of The Month can only be the deluxe edition of Kabaka Pyramid's The Kalling. There are also reviews of albums by Ras Teo (Coming Home), Adubta Roots Organisation, US band Algorhythm and Delroy Wilson, whose Cool Operator is a collection of his hits for Bunny Lee. Run The Track meanwhile, has new tunes by Bounty Killer, Beenie Man & Natural Black, Jaz Elise, Ini Kamoze & Lila Ike and an all-star line-up comprised of Capleton, Buju Banton & BL Tha Hook.
