editorial

Welcome to the August edition of the Global Reggae Charts magazine.

While the festival season and the summer in general in the northern hemisphere have kept us

pretty busy, we are trying to get the magazine back together. This month you can find most of the

categories you used to find in the magazine back again. We have a voter interview with Thomas

Behler aka BloodPreshah from KGNU in Colorado, USA, and another interview with Monkey Marc,

who gives business insights from his experience as a producer and independent artist, the Australian

reggae scene, and offers his perspective on the changing reggae business. Also, of course,

you will find the latest single, album, and riddim charts.

This month our artist feature is Italian reggae superstar Alborosie. Within the past year, he has released

three albums, all of them with high positions on the Global Reggae Charts. Also, his single

“Living Dread” has been within the peak positions of the single charts for months. His latest single

“Contradiction” feat. Chronixx went straight to #1 on the single charts last month and continues to

stay there this month, while his “Unbreakable – Alborosie meets the Wailers United” album went

straight to #2 on the album charts. So, we think, it was time for us to give him an “Artist of the

Month” spot.

When we take a closer look at the charts, we find, that on both the single and album charts around

50% of the entries are new, entering the charts within the past two months. One year after his

album release, Chronixx seems to be one of the most wanted feature artists. No less than four

tracks on the single charts name him as a featured artist, namely “Contradiction“ with Alborosie at

#1, “No Guarantee” with Protoje at #2, “Help the Weak” with Capleton at #11 and “Unity we Need“

with Richie Spice at #17. Kabaka Pyramid keeps his presence high after his recent album release

Kontraband (#1 - album charts) with “Kontraband” feat. Damian Marley at #4 and “Borders” feat.

Ghanaian superstar Stonebwoy at #16. Also, he and Shanique Marie are featured artists on the

Yaadcore release “No Fenke Fenke”, that went directly to #5 on the single charts this month. Further

new entries on the single charts come from Tribal Seeds feat. Protoje, the already-named combination

of Richie Spice & Chronixx, and from Rootz Radicals out of Germany.

On the album charts, you can find plenty of new entries this month. Besides the already named

Alborosie meets the Wailers United album, we have new entries from Protoje with his long-awaited

new album A Matter of Time, Rebelution, Dubmatix, Omar Perry, Tribal Seeds, Hempress Sativa

& Scientist, and Katchafire.

While the single and album charts have many new releases this month, it seems not too many

interesting riddim albums have been released recently, since, apart from the newly entered

Wizzle Riddim, all entries have been in the charts for three to five months already.

Now we wish you an interesting study of the magazine and the charts.

All the best

Felix

INTERVIEW

This month we talked to our voter DJ BloodPreshah,

who presents Reggae Bloodlines, Reggae Transfusion

and Dub Palace on the community radio station KGNU in

Denver, Colorado (USA).

Global Reggae Charts: Can you please introduce

yourself and your radio show!

BloodPreshah: Greetings GRC family, I am Blood-

Preshah, host of Reggae Bloodlines, Reggae

Transfusion, and Dub Palace on Colorado‘s

community radio station KGNU.

COMMUNITY

USA

making a stop here and

a local reggae scene that

is filled with talented reggae musicians and DJs.

Reggae on KGNU is thriving, with three different

programs focused on the reggae music genre. And

we are weeks away from the inaugural Reggae On

The Grass, a reggae showcase featuring 24 different

artistes, reggae bands, and DJs that all hail from

Colorado.

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

motivation?

BP: Since childhood, I have been fascinated with

radio and broadcasting. While on tour

with Colorado‘s 8750 Reggae Band,

IRIE FM cassettes that were recorded in

Jamaica, were our musical soundtrack

while we traveled around the western

United States. Jamaican DJs like

Mighty Mike, and Barry G were my early

inspirations, much like Sir David

Rodigan, and Downbeat The Ruler who

still serve as my musical mentors today.

GRC: What spectrum of music do you

play in your show and which artists

have you found most inspiring lately?

GRC: How would you describe the reggae scene in

Denver, Colorado, and what is the reception for reggae

on the radio over there?

BP: In a word… blossoming. Reggae music is more

popular than ever in Denver, with most USA tours

BP: Reggae Bloodlines began in 1978,

and I tend to focus on the quintessential

classics in reggae. Artists like Jacob

Miller, Dennis Brown, and Alton Ellis to

name a few.

Reggae Transfusion is a contemporary

radio show that puts its focus on today‘s reggae

artistes like Royal Blu, Lila Ike, and Jesse Royal.

The Dub Palace allows us to explore the past, present,

and future of the dub style of reggae, with

artistes like Von D and Mala to King Tubby and the

great Bunny Lee.

GRC: What are the realities you face being a selector

in America, given the country’s preference for live

bands?

BP: The reality that a selector is different from a live

band. Live instruments, and live singers and players

of instruments are what went in to making these

recordings, and live instruments and live singers and

players of instruments are what you are listening to

on stage... to me there isn‘t a difference, except for

the fact that a selector can often times sound better

than a band, since he/she has such a vast selection

of music to choose from.

Thanks to The Groove Thief, Felix, and the entire GRC

family!

Alborosie

Italian born reggae superstar Alborosie has released three albums in the

past 12 months; all of them have been seen at the Global Reggae Charts. In

August 2017 he released the dub version of his Freedom & Fyah album from

2016 called Freedom in Dub, followed by the Soul Pirate – Acoustic album in

December, which was an acoustic version of his legendary debut Soul

Pirate. Finally, these releases culminated in the Unbreakable – Alborosie

meets the Wailers United album, that went straight to #2 on the album

charts. Combined with the singles “Living Dread” and “Contradiction” feat.

Chronixx, which owned the peak position of the single charts for many

months, these are five excellent reasons to grant Alborosie the “Artist of the

Month” honor.

INTERVIEW

BUSINESS

INSIGHT

This month we have some business insights on riddim

productions, reggae in Australia, and DIY producing

from Monkey Marc, whose “Yaad N Abraad” riddim has

been making waves around the world for months.

Photos: Francesco Vicenzi

Anderson Muth: Your latest production, the ”Yaad

N Abraad“ riddim, has been on the GRC Riddim

Chart for several months now – what was the creation

process like for this?

global reggae charts

insight

so I approached a bunch of artists with the concept

of making music with a political message or socially

conscious lyrics, and went with artists where the collaboration

felt natural and inspired. The main guidance

I give artists is some rough thoughts on the

kinds of topics I‘d like them to cover. After Dre Island

cut his version, Iba MaHr had already heard the riddim

and was keen to record ”Come Out,“ then

5 Star recorded the powerful ”Cold City.“ I was pleased

to connect with Aza Lineage on ”Prosper“ and

Earth and the Fullness for ”Living in the Joy.“

Monkey Marc: The riddim itself was actually created a

few years back on my MPC, here in my solarpowered

studio in Melbourne, Australia. I made it

the same way I make all my music – it starts with me

programming a beat on my MPC. I had a few skanks

that I had sampled from some old vinyl records plus

I played some keys to get the riddim bubbling. I

programmed all the bass on an old synth of mine for

that big heavy dominating bassline you hear throughout

the song. Once I had the whole feel of the song,

I played some melodica through my vintage Roland

Space Echo and the riddim came alive.

AM: How did the collaboration with Dre Island and

the other vocalists come about?

MM: I‘d had a few thoughts about collaborating with

new artists on the riddim and we sought out Dre Island

as I really loved his voice and socially conscious

lyrical approach. Once we had made the connection,

we booked a studio in Kingston and recorded Dre

with his studio engineer. Dre Island sent us a demo

cut of ”Yaad N Abraad“ and I held onto the tune for

a month or so before I could have a proper listen as I

was so busy at the time. When I finally listened to the

demo and played it to some friends, I knew the tune

was special. Dre was really excited with the track as

well so we made plans for a music video filmed by

300K and got the ball rolling.

As for the other artists on the riddim, it happened

quite organically. I only make music with a message,

global reggae charts | issue 15 / august 2018

All the vocals were recorded in Jamaica in a few

different studios, then mixed and mastered by me in

my recording studio in Australia.

We were consciously trying to get strong female

representation on the release, especially in such a

male-dominated scene. That‘s because the idea behind

my current and upcoming releases with Jamaican

artists is to use this musical project as a platform

to share powerful messages about issues that these

artists and their communities are going through – the

insight

reality on the ground. It was really important to me

to have women‘s voices join in that conversation.

Aza‘s lyrics in “Prosper“ felt especially poignant after

the tragic passing of France Nooks: ’They make it

so hard for us ... Survival is a must, I say we have

to trod on.‘ And it was great to have Earth and the

Fullness‘ uplifting message from Jamnesia to share

as the final track on the riddim.

AM: Any insights into the creative process for a

one-riddim release like this?

project to birth, especially with the number of artists

who I‘m working with on this one. Added to that

are the challenges of funding the money and time

to write, mix, and master it myself. So these riddim

releases are my way of letting people know that something

big is coming.

AM: What are the challenges of creating, playing,

and representing reggae music on such a dynamically

different island like Australia? How is the scene

currently doing? – I did see that you had Soom T

down for a visit recently…

MM: Australia is a fairly varied musical market with

reggae being a pretty small subculture in comparison

to other genres. It can be a difficult environment to

get your music out there when the audience is not

as large as other countries. Plus it’s a hard country

to tour as it’s so big (with a land mass comparable to

the USA but with one fourteenth of the population).

Radio play of reggae is mainly on community radio

via shows like Babylon Burning with Jesse I on PBS,

with mainstream Australian radio largely ignoring

most worldwide reggae music. Australia has much

larger rock, electronic and hip hop music audiences.

I often find myself playing music at electronic or

alternative music festivals, with my set being a way

of introducing reggae sounds to those audiences. As

I’m not so much of a purist myself and also produce

hip hop and electronic music, I find I can relate to a

multitude of scenes and genres.

MM: Again, this was pretty organic. The idea behind

my riddim releases is to build up to a final album that

I‘m releasing in 2019 called Vital Sound. As I‘ve been

writing the album, there have been some standout

tracks that felt too special to have just one cut of

them - No Surrender, Yaad N Abraad, and an upcoming

track with Turbulence called “Money Mad,” and

an exquisite downtempo track with Iba MaHr called

“Give Thanks.” I find that around 4-5 tracks is a sweet

spot for the riddims, and that‘s the length of an EP.

An album can be almost an almost painfully long

9

The reggae scene in Australia has been growing

though for the past 20 odd years. There are many

sound systems around Australia now having regular

nights and creating strong local contingents. Sound

systems like Heartical Hi Powa, Adrians Wall and my

own DIY Hi Fi are doing events in Melbourne whilst

crews like Inner West Disco Machine are doing great

things in Sydney. We have some great dancehall

nights too with DJ So Fire‘s I Love Dancehall having

a growing following here in Melbourne over the past

ten years.

global reggae charts | issue 15 / august 2018


global reggae charts

insight

Yes, recently we had the pleasure of Soom T visiting

Melbourne for the first time. It‘s a long way to

come for artists - she performed just a few hours

after travelling for two days from the UK. Australian

audiences loved her spirit and energy on stage. Even

though the shows were in smaller venues the energy

was big!

I personally have a long history with Soom and

made a full album with her a few years back called

Bullets Over Babylon. We were living in Leipzig

while writing the album together, and I was immersed

in the local punk scene. I‘ve always been inspired

by strong women in music and in my life, and Bullets

Over Babylon is my ode to female empowerment.

AM: We’re often covering the business side of reggae

here at GRC, what are the pressures and realities you

face as a well known but independent reggae artist?

MM: I have to be honest and admit that being an

independent artist is really hard. For me the key to

my survival has been my ability to adapt and use

all of my skills to do as much of the work myself as

I can. These days I not only write the music, I also

usually record it, mix it and master it as well. So I

save myself a lot of money as I don’t have to hire out

other engineers. It’s been a steep learning curve and

sometimes the workload can be intense and extremely

low paid (or sometimes no pay).

But in the long run it‘s worth it because it allows me

to keep the integrity of my sound exactly the way I

hear it and want it to sound.

To keep costs down, I also built my own recording

studio (in a recycled insulated shipping container

that was used to snap freeze prawns in its past life).

I’ve installed a full set of solar panels on my trailer

that sits next to the studio, so I don’t have any electricity

bills. I also love that my music

has little or no carbon emissions

- my music is purely powered by

the sun. On the side, I also run our

sweet solar-powered sound system

DIY Hi Fi at events to help bring in

some extra cash plus occasionally

I mix for other people too. All the

money goes straight into my music

and my studio.

The bigger picture for me though

has really been interesting. I’ve

watched how the music-buying public

has shifted with the advent of

music now largely being streamed

on sites like Spotify and YouTube.

This has really changed the profits

I used to see coming off digital

downloads which in the past where

much higher than now. We also see some money

coming in via our vinyl sales but living in Australia is

tricky and a long way from most of the world‘s vinyl

presses. So pressings and release can often take a

little longer than expected and be more expensive as

we have to add shipping and time into the equation.

Bottom line is it can often take a few releases before

you actually start seeing a profit on the music you

release, so my advice would be to not give up your

global reggae charts | issue 15 / august 2018

global reggae charts

insight

day job in the early stages so you can save and invest

in your next release.

AM: A related question I think: you had a massive

release of the “No Surrender” video through Reggaeville

last year! At 5 million views and counting, what

do you feel are the pros and cons of releasing music

through such an online culture distributor?

”No Surrender“ was huge for us and really heartwarming.

Over 5 million views was such a surprise as

I totally wasn‘t expecting it. Releasing through an online

distributor like Reggaeville was a big plus for us.

It showcased the song and video to a whole new audience

and got us views in countries that we probably

never dreamed of getting played in. The video was

also uploaded to my own YouTube channel, but most

of the plays have been on Reggaeville‘s channel.

Reggaeville has been wonderful and really supportive

of everything we have done. It’s been a huge asset for

us to have a good relationship with like-minded people.

I would safely say that our audience has grown

since we had the “No Surrender” release on Reggaeville‘s

YouTube channel.

For artists today, one of the most important factors

is reaching new fans and developing a worldwide

audience, and to do this it’s important to reach out

and collaborate and build the community to move

forward. The bottom line is it benefits everyone involved

and also enables the music and the message to

spread wider and deeper.

AM: Finally, what is your approach and thought

process for the distribution and marketing of your

music? What advice do you have for up-and-coming

artists on how best to reach their supporters while

developing a larger fan base?

MM: My approach for distribution and marketing has

been ad hoc. We‘ve been learning as we go, asking

a lot of advice from more experienced friends and

trying to be as strategic as possible within our

limited resources.

It‘s an immense challenge to pull off the creative

vision for a project like this on a limited budget,

and it‘s sometimes hard to know where to focus

our efforts. The music industry has changed so

much even over the past five years, and there are

so many marketing channels now that artists are

expected to stay on top of - from the daily grind of

producing social media content to reaching out to

social media influencers to more traditional press

and PR to trying to come up with outstanding content

like video assets or viral content. I‘m indebted

to my small team who work with me extremely

hard on this. We don‘t have a road map and are

working it out as we go along, and learning new

things all the time. That‘s another reason for the

extended release schedule for the whole project -

hopefully by the time the album comes around, we

will have got the release process down pat!

One thing I can say is that social media has definitely

changed the game for independent artists as it

gives you a way to connect with fans directly. Even

though I‘m a very private person and don‘t always

feel comfortable with social media, it‘s become an

important part of our bigger picture strategy. There

are some big gains to be made through social

media if you‘re smart about it.

Here‘s some advice for emerging artists:

• Be patient and stay focused on the end goal.

Music releases often take a lot longer than

expected so stick with it for the long run.

• Plan ahead for your release with PR and social

media. Put as much effort into promoting your

release as you did creating it.

• Keep good relations with the artists you work

with and keep them up to date with your schedules.

• Stay true to your sound as that‘s what will

make you stand out among the crowd. Anyone

can follow trends but it can make your music

date really fast. Having a strong and unique

creative vision is priceless.
