Riddim 106 - October Issue
Twenty years after they first started, I'm delighted to still be writing for Riddim Magazine. Although written in German, it's remained the world's leading reggae specialist publication ever since and the quality of the writing and presentation really hasn't faltered one iota.
There's just one feature of mine in this latest issue but it's based on a recent interview I did with an artist who's long had a special place in my heart. I first met Sizzla when he was a high school student and the talent was there for us all to see, even at fifteen. He's since attracted acclaim and controversy in equal measure but talks eloquently here about his new album So High, and also his important work as a community leader and spiritual figurehead in August Town - a ghetto neighbourhood in Kingston, Jamaica where you'll also find the legendary Judgement Yard; home to his studio, sound-system, Rasta tabernacle, private residence and much else besides.
