editorial<br />

Welcome to a new edition of the <strong>Global</strong> <strong>Reggae</strong> <strong>Charts</strong>!<br />

This month’s edition marks the beginning of an editorial overhaul of the GRC magazine. Right from<br />

the start, we were pretty clear about the fact that we didn’t want to create another reggae publication<br />

focused at fans and listeners. Our media partners, along with many other publishers, are doing<br />

an excellent job at this already. Instead, we wanted to focus on a professional audience - to all the<br />

people who (semi-)professionally work in and with reggae music.<br />

If you have been a regular reader before, you have seen that idea reflected in our feature articles.<br />

Instead of writing regular artist profiles, we opted to look at a larger theme or trend that was reflected<br />

in the work of the the featured artist. But for various reasons - most importantly the short<br />

timespan between having the final voting results, picking a featured artist and the publication of<br />

the magazine - this approach became impractical. Therefore, we decided to change the concept.<br />

Going forward, our lead article will explore a subject in depth. The topics will be music and reggae<br />

industry matters. If you will, we’ll try to tackle the important professional questions of our time.<br />

In case you liked the artist features before, let me assure you: even if you are not working in the<br />

industry yourself, the subjects we plan to cover are highly interesting even for fans. After all, we<br />

are living through a time of constant change, most notably of course the advent of the digital era.<br />

These changes not only affect industry professionals but alter how we all discover and experience<br />

music, how our beloved artists work, and even how the music itself evolves.<br />

To kick things off, we’ll launch a new series this month: <strong>Reggae</strong> Careers in the Internet Age. In this,<br />

we’ll examine how reggae careers are built in the new music world. To that end, we will look at<br />

the challenges and opportunities that artists are facing in <strong>2018</strong> and try to find some answers and<br />

insights that can help our community to maintain - or raise - its global profile in these fast-paced<br />

times.<br />

This won’t be the only editorial change though. We have more updates in the pipeline and will roll<br />

them out over the next few months. Without giving away too much: this will also include artist-centric<br />

content in a new format. Stay tuned for more!<br />

Until then, we are very interested in your feedback and ideas, which you can send to us at<br />

info@globalreggaecharts.com. Also, we are very open for additional contributors. In case you are<br />

interested in the professional side of reggae (and music more broadly) and fond of writing or creating<br />

content, please get in touch as well!<br />

Cheers<br />

Thomas<br />

<strong>Reggae</strong> Careers<br />

in the Internet Age<br />

Part I: A New Playground<br />

Text: Thomas Euler // whagwaan-magazine.de<br />

The internet has fundamentally changed music. In<br />

<strong>2018</strong>, that’s hardly a provocative statement. Distribution<br />

has gone digital. First, MP3s changed everything,<br />

and now we are witnessing the transition from<br />

files to streaming. Marketing has gone digital. Social<br />

Media is now the main way for artists to reach their<br />

fans. And discovery - the way people look for or<br />

stumble across new artists and songs - has also gone<br />

digital. New songs appear in our feeds, are recommended<br />

by curators or introduced to the streaming<br />

services playlists. By and large, the world of music<br />

has become a digital playground.<br />

Along with the changes in the industry, another thing<br />

has fundamentally changed: careers. Before the<br />

internet, the major objective for any aspiring artist<br />

was to convince some institutional gatekeepers. For<br />

most, that used to be a steady grind. You played gigs<br />

at the local youth center and, from time to time, you<br />

landed a slot in some line-up of an event in the next<br />

town. You scrounged up some money to afford some<br />

time at the local studio. You recorded a few songs<br />

which you put on a demo tape. You sent your demo<br />

to some labels and bookers in further-away towns.<br />

You played small gigs in a radius of, maybe, a few<br />

hundred miles. If you got lucky, someone actually<br />

picked up your demo, gave it a shot, amd some<br />

small label handed you a contract and an advance.<br />

This allowed you to record at a better studio. Maybe<br />

something even got published. If no label responded,<br />

you took the money that you earned by playing gigs<br />

and paid for a better studio yourself. You produced a<br />

higher-quality demo and sent it to more labels.<br />

This process basically repeated until someone more<br />

or less important in the industry “discovered” you<br />

and gave you an opportunity to reach a broader audience.<br />

Because, back then, the world of music was<br />

full of gatekeepers: label A&Rs, radio programmers,<br />

TV editors, bookers, and the like. In the age of mass<br />

media, those were the ones controlling the platforms<br />

which artists relied upon if they wanted to reach a<br />

broader-than-local audience. Unless you got really lucky<br />

and instantly won some pop label’s casting, you<br />

usually had a fair amount of experience under your<br />

belt before you got discovered. While you weren’t<br />

dealing with the industry’s big players, you at least<br />

cut your teeth.<br />

Sure enough, this has entirely changed today. From<br />

music production - nowadays comfortably done from<br />

within your bedroom in the DAW of your choice - to<br />

even shooting a music video: never has production<br />

been as affordable and accessible for everyone as it<br />

is now in the digital age. But production is only one<br />

side of the equation; and, arguably, the less important<br />

one. The real game changer is distribution. All<br />

it takes today to release a piece of music is a digital<br />

file, an internet connection, and an account on<br />

YouTube or SoundCloud. Once it’s online, almost half<br />

the world’s population, namely its 3.58 billion global<br />

internet users, can access it. No approval by any<br />

institutional gatekeeper required.<br />

Of course, most music on the web never actually<br />

reaches even a ten-thousandth of that potential audience.<br />

These days, content is ubiquitous and human<br />

attention scarce. But make no mistake. The sheer<br />

possibility of a song turning into a viral sensation or<br />

of an unsigned artist getting a significant hype on social<br />

media is a fundamental change in music’s inner<br />

workings. The gatekeepers of old were often - and in<br />

many cases rightfully - blamed for not taking risks<br />

and only featuring consensus, mainstream-compatible<br />

artists. Today, their influence has dwindled.<br />

They have been replaced by a combination of crowd<br />

global reggae charts | issue 10 / feb <strong>2018</strong> 4


global reggae charts<br />

feature<br />

intelligence, network effects, curators, influencers,<br />

algorithms. While there are also some new gatekeepers,<br />

say the playlist curators of the big streaming<br />

services, even they stopped relying primarily on their<br />

personal taste. Instead, they use all the available data<br />

and tools to discover new talent and make listing<br />

decisions.<br />

That shift is reflected in the music itself as well as in<br />

the industry. Arguably, today’s pop music draws from<br />

an ever-increasing number of influences and has,<br />

thus, become more varied and experimental than<br />

ever before. And many music genres and scenes,<br />

including reggae, have built out their own, self-sustaining<br />

digital infrastructure which connects artists<br />

and fans from across the globe. As long as enough<br />

people care about the music, the scene can exist,<br />

even if it is largely ignored by popular culture and its<br />

media outlets.<br />

This new ecosystem has created many new opportunities<br />

and challenges for upcoming artists. The way<br />

to approach a career in <strong>2018</strong> is fundamentally different<br />

from what would have been considered a sound<br />

approach even as recently as 2003. There are many<br />

fascinating questions that artists and their teams<br />

have to answer today. For instance: you can easily<br />

release your very first recordings - but at what stage<br />

is it advisable? Staying unsigned is now an option<br />

that can put you well into a stardom trajectory - so,<br />

does it still take a label at all? How do you react to a<br />

sudden buzz that catches you by surprise? After all,<br />

the way you deal with it can be the difference between<br />

a long, successful career and one-hit wonder<br />

status. Is it still an option to be “just” a musician or<br />

do you need to be a personality that is constantly<br />

engaging with your fanbase?<br />

These are some of the questions that I’ll be trying to<br />

answer during the course of this series. In order to<br />

get there, I’ll be interviewing various artists and people<br />

who work in the industry. And while the issues<br />

and questions raised in here go well beyond reggae,<br />

I’ll take any general insights and apply them to the<br />

reggae cosmos. After all, the reggaeverse is a very<br />

particular subject with its unique challenges, structure<br />

and rules. Simply said: what works in pop or hip<br />

hop doesn’t necessarily work in reggae.<br />

If you have any input or questions that you find<br />

worthy of consideration, if you know some interesting<br />

cases or people I should talk to, or if you have<br />

any kind of feedback: just drop me a line at<br />

INTERVIEW<br />

This month we talked to Santi Palazzo, who is a key<br />

figure on the Argentinian reggae radio scene.<br />

<strong>Global</strong> <strong>Reggae</strong> <strong>Charts</strong>: Can you please introduce<br />

yourself and your radio show!<br />

Santi Palazzo: I‘m Santi Palazzo: director of La De<br />

Dios Radio Station, host of Funky Kingston at Radio<br />

Cantilo, La De Dios show, Ldd Sound presenta <strong>Global</strong><br />

<strong>Reggae</strong> <strong>Charts</strong>, and the live stream of Rototom Sunsplash.<br />

I also work as editor and engineer for Rototom<br />

Radio and Ldd Sound.<br />

GRC: How would you describe the reggae scene in<br />

Argentina, and how is reggae going on the radio<br />

over there?<br />

SP: Argentina has a great artistic reggae community<br />

– until today, a couple of bands have been active for<br />

more than 30 years, like Los Cafres, La Zimbabwe,<br />

Pericos; and numerous bands have overcome two<br />

decades of their career (Nonpalidece, Riddim, Resistencia,<br />

Dancing Mood, Satélite Kingston, and more).<br />

It is also fair to say that the reggae music market is<br />

in a dark moment. There are very few mainstream<br />

spaces for artists of the genre and much economic<br />

difficulty to receive the Jamaican stars and legends.<br />

GRC: How did you get into radio and what was your<br />

motivation?<br />

SP: I think as a radio animal – since 1990 I have worked<br />

for radio broadcast, classical music, rock, tango,<br />

and news programs. Since the beginning of 2000, I<br />

began to promote the desire to unite the two passions:<br />

Jamaican music and radio.<br />

GRC: What spectrum of music do you play in your<br />

show and which artists have you found most inspiring<br />

lately?<br />

SP: I play in an eclectic way, from original 60s ska<br />

and rocksteady Jamaican sounds to the hardest dancehall<br />

and new roots from today. Both at La De Dios<br />

and at Funky Kingston we give great importance to<br />

local bands, inviting them to play live. One on each<br />
