editorial

Welcome to a new edition of the Global Reggae Charts!

This month, you’ll find that we implemented one major update: the album charts, just like the

single charts, now feature 20 LPs. This was made possible thanks to the increased number of votes

we gave to every voter - a novum we introduced last month and about which I wrote in last

edition‘s editorial. In doing so, we achieved clearer, more distinct results among albums that didn’t

make the Top 10. This is a great step forward as it allows us to make more room for releases that

are clearly popular but didn’t make the cut before.

Also, this is the last edition of the GRC magazine in 2017 (since the December voting will only be

published in January). Thus, I want to take the time to reflect upon what we have achieved in our

first year - and give an outlook on our plans for 2018.

We launched the Global Reggae Charts in May. Of course, work in the background had begun way

earlier than that. When I talked to Felix (Rühling, the founder of GRC) for the first time in March,

he had already developed the idea, created the concept, and talked to many people from in and

around reggae. From there, we (as in: mostly Felix) created the first model of the charts, launched

our website, recruited the initial set of voters, found media partners, and eventually started

the first voting round in April. Then, in early May, our magazine‘s first issue saw the light of day.

Thanks to the great work of Solvey Schönknecht, the GRCs are not only packed with good music, it

also looks great and is visually up to di time. Mad ting!

Since then, we put continuous efforts into further optimizing the charts. We made improvements

to the voting system, grew the number of voters, and launched playlists on Spotify and YouTube.

Anderson Muth joined our team as an editor (thanks to him, all texts in here are now actually

good reads!). We tweaked many other details. All of that is well-documented in the past editorials.

Overall, I think we have come a long way and built something that is slowly starting to be valuable

to reggae.

Still, we are far from satisfied. 2017 has just been the first step of this project. I explained the

reason for creating the Global Reggae Charts in the first edition’s editorial. I wrote:

“Everybody knows reggae. And almost everybody likes it. ... But that’s not reflected in the

music’s recognition by the media. Nor in sales. Why? Because it’s really tough for outsiders

to find an easy entry to the vast jungle that is reggae.”

Our goal is to develop the GRCs into a helpful solution to this problem - for fans and media professionals

alike. To get there, a lot remains to be done. One milestone, on which we are already

working, is the relaunch of our website. Continuing to increase our voter pool and media partners

are other important steps. So, too, is raising awareness of the charts inside the reggae community.

I’m confident: 2018 won’t get boring.

But first, I wish all of you Happy Holidays and a Wonderful New Year!

Cheers

Thomas

INTERVIEW

COLLEGE

This month we talked to Dominic Reuben from

Oslo Reggae Show at Nova Radio, Norway.

RADIO

NORWAY

global reggae charts

featured voter

Selecta Harmony/Dominic Reuben

Global Reggae Charts: Can you please introduce

yourself and your radio show!

Dominic Reuben: Greetings! I am Dominic Reuben, a

reggae selector from the UK now living in Oslo, Norway.

The Oslo Reggae Show is every Tuesday from

9:30 – 11:30 pm on RadioNova. The first hour is all

about fresh releases – and once a month the Global

Reggae Charts – and in the second hour my musical

compadre Selecta Harmony plays a deep roots and

culture selection, mostly on vinyl.

GRC: I know you are living in Norway with a British

background. Could you compare the reception of

reggae in Norway with the reception in the UK?

What do you think is special about reggae in

Norway?

DR: There is a very big difference. In Britain, Jamaicans

have had a major impact on culture, particularly

music, since the 1950s. England has, since that time,

been a second home for reggae music and the industries

around it. In Norway, there are very few people

from the Caribbean. The population is small here

so it is not easy to create business around concerts

and club promotions, but fortunately there is a set of

soldiers who manage it!

In recent years reggae artists have managed to break

through to a wider audience by singing in Norwegian.

This has been a big boost for reggae music in

Norway generally, as well as putting some artists

right in the mainstream. Another great step forward

has been Norwegian reggae lovers building their

own sound systems and then linking with the UK and

European roots and dub scene.

GRC: How did you get into radio and what was your

motivation? Are you involved with reggae apart from

that as well?

DR: I have always loved radio and I have been

listening to reggae shows on the radio since childhood.

Reggae was the medium through which the

light of Rastafari shone and that is the motivation to

keep playing reggae music going forward. As soon

as we were old enough we started promoting dances

and I have worked with promoting reggae and Rastafari

since those days through radio, sound system,

club nights, Rasta cinema nights, concert promotion,

family events, and so on.

I had a radio show in England in the early 90s for a

couple of years and when I moved to Oslo I soon

organized a show for myself and some fellow DJs

on a local FM station. The station folded and we left

it at that, but after some years I kept getting ideas

and inspiration for radio shows, so I contacted Radio

Nova because I knew they already had some specialist

shows in the evenings. I started the Oslo Reggae

Show in 2016 alone at first, but when I got my time

extended to two hours, I brought in Selecta Harmony

to play roots and culture in the second hour while I

concentrate on new releases in the first hour. The big

difference now is that we are accessible on the net,

so we have regular listeners from all over the world.

GRC: What spectrum of music do you play in your

show and which artists have you found most inspiring

lately?

DR: Well, I will play any style of reggae if the message

is positive. The show is all about reggae, but I will

play some dancehall too – but no slackness! This year

has seen a lot of strong material from the obvious

choices like Chronixx, Jah9, Jesse Royal, etc., and it

is great to hear roots and dub coming forward again

from Rory StoneLove and his Black Dub project. Getting

off the beaten track, Promise No Promises is a

great artist from Antigua; Michael Gordon is a veter-

ARTIST FEATURE

Text: Thomas Euler // whagwaan-magazine.de

Two In.Digg.Nation Collective artists made it into this

month’s single Top10. If the name rings a bell with

you, you likely recognize it as Protoje’s label. Indeed,

the singer is In.Digg.Nation’s founder and most

prominent face. But it would be a rather unsuccessful

collective if it consisted of only a single person. The

other artists currently associated with the collective

are Lila Iké, Sevana, Evaflow, producer-turned-artist

Ziah, and the producer team The DrumKeys.

But what exactly is the In.Digg.Nation Collective?

A label? Kind of. But that’s not the whole story. The

team behind In.Digg.Nation calls itself an “independent

music and management label”. Here’s how they

described their identity and mission in an email to

GRC:

“The Collective‘s mantra revolves around bringing

together a collective group of young Caribbean

talents, across various creative mediums, who by

joining forces and working together can recognize

and support each other‘s creative endeavors. As

such, the label frequently engages and champions

various creative projects with artists, musicians,

authors, directors, photographers, designers, and

entrepreneurs, with the goal to unify, mentor, spark

inspiration, build together, and provide a platform to

showcase their works.”

The word platform in particular caught my attention.

Hold that in mind as we’ll come back to it. But before

we do, allow me a little excursion into the business

of reggae.

Reggae, as much as we love it, is best described

as a niche genre. Arguably one of the best known,

globally beloved, and most musically influential genres

- but a niche one nonetheless. Over the decades,

a few superstar artists emerged from reggae and

managed to gain the attention of mainstream audiences.

But overall, most artists which we consider “big”

within the reggae scene are far away from the kind of

stardom and commercial results associated with the

term superstar.

simply very challenging and expensive to organize

an effective global media outreach; especially from

an island suffering from poverty. Thus, it mostly

didn’t happen as there simply weren’t enough

1

resources .

Today, however, the rules of the game have changed.

And the young generation of reggae artists is learning

to make the best of those changes.

The internet transformed the world of music, as well

as its business, on many levels. For one, every artist

can reach his fanbase directly, thanks to

One reason for that certainly is the fact that the

public’s taste changes and evolves over time. This

correlates with the media’s willingness to feature

reggae. At a few points over the past 40 years, general-interest

music media made room for reggae and/

or dancehall artists. More often than not, however,

they didn’t. Yet, I contend that the latter isn’t only due

to the zeitgeist.

Back when the media was still the major gatekeeper,

the relationship between the public’s taste and the

media’s content worked two ways: the media covered

something if they believed their audience would

like it. At the same time, the people could only like

what they knew; which in turn was largely driven by

the media. This means: the ability to - beware, industry

slang - “work the media” was just as crucial for

an artist as the music they produced. Over an endured

stretch of time, I argue, reggae artists and their

teams, weren’t particularly successful at this.

This isn’t meant as finger-pointing. The reasons for

that situation were plentiful and all too understandable,

particularly when it comes to Jamaican artists.

In the pre-internet world and music business, it was

Protoje

building a network of fans and genre influencers,

centered around their music and other creative

doings.

In such a world, the idea of creating an artist-driven

indie label that understands itself as a platform and

leverages the internet to build an audience makes

a lot of sense. While it no longer takes a huge label

with a global team to effectively promote and distribute

music to a global audience, it is still beyond

a single artist’s capacity to do everything on their

own (mind you, there is still music to be created and

performed). It takes a team to do so. Ideally, one that

is well-versed in the modern, internet-driven music

game.

Mortimer

social media platforms - on an (almost) global scale,

at little cost, and without having to rely on any

editorial gatekeeper’s goodwill. Further, instead of

mass media that tried to reach as broad an audience

as possible, we have more and more niche media

that cater to specific interests. And, importantly, music

distribution is no longer bound to physical media.

As we are moving towards the streaming age, the

costs of distributing music to fans across the globe

have drastically decreased.

The net effect for artists in a niche is this:

1) They are less reliant on big media when it comes

to building and reaching a fan base.

2) They can get more done as independent artists

than ever before. Traditional record labels were built

upon their capability to get physical recordings in

physical stores. Artists used to be reliant on that.

Today, it’s less important than ever.

Under the supervision of Protoje and his mother

Lorna Bennett - herself of course a famous reggae

singer, who acts as the label’s managing director -,

In.Digg.Nation is building exactly that. It’s a collective

of artists, a small dedicated team of supporters, and,

essentially, a network that allows every individual

artist to achieve more - including reaching a broader

audience.

In sum, the model seems at once made possible by

and optimized for the modern music business. It has

worked well in other genres before and it wouldn’t

surprise me in the the least if we see an increasing

number of entrepreneurial-minded artists of the new

generation pursuing their career in a similar model.

Among them, I bet, we’ll find the first internet-made

global reggae superstar.

Thus, you might argue: the very fact that reggae even became a

global community speaks for the music’s power. Said community was

almost solely created by 1) Caribbean communities abroad (in particular

in some parts of the USA and in the UK) and 2) enthusiasts who

stumbled upon the music, became hooked and built local scenes.

3) The new key skill that allows an artist to grow is

a list of some outstanding

songs he played horns on. This

list included the John Holt classic

”Police in Heli copter,“ which

obviously has no horns at all.

But, the corresponding album

by the same name, in fact,

has horns, which are credited

to Dean Fraser.
