editorial

Welcome to the September edition of the Global Reggae Charts magazine!

The European festival season is coming to an end. When looking back on the past weeks and

months, we can see that, at least in Europe, the reggae festivals – and festivals in general – are still

booming. While club shows and tours for reggae artists tend to get harder year by year, summer

vibes, reggae, and the event character of a music festival seem to be a very successful combination.

But is this true everywhere in the world, or is it just the European perspective? And even in

Europe, this might not be true in every country. In this issue of the GRC magazine, MissLee from

MzansiReggae gives some insight into the scene in South Africa, her work with MzansiReggae,

and her view on reggae on the African continent. We did similar specials before and think, that this

could be something worth extending in the future. The “global” in Global Reggae Charts shouldn’t

just refer to the heritage of the voters, but in the same way, it should give an idea of what’s happening

in reggae around the world. We only have 20 positions on the charts and the voter base

these days is too small to think about regional charts, we established the “New Reggae Releases”

playlist on Spotify a while ago where we try to reflect global releases that can be considered as

reggae or from the Jamaican music continuum. Maybe columns about different reggae markets

around the world could be an enrichment for the magazine and help to strengthen the global

perspective of the project - we would love to get your view on this topic, and in case you would be

interested in contributing a column about reggae in your country or region, you are very welcome

to link us at info@globalreggaecharts.com.

Looking at this issue of the GRC magazine again, we have Reemah from the island of St. Croix, US

Virgin Islands, as our featured artist. Her latest album went straight to #10 on the album charts and

we consider her well worth this honor. Also, as usual, we feature one of our voters with a small

interview in this issue. This time it’s DJ PhG from Caribbean Dance Radio in Northern California,

USA. And finally, of course, you can find all the latest chart positions in the categories “Best Single”,

“Best Album”, and “Best Riddim”.

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

All the best,

Felix

INTERVIEW

This month we talked to DJ PhG from Caribbean Dance

Radio in Northern California, USA. He presents his show

on local radio stations and across the web.

Global Reggae Charts: Can you please introduce

yourself and your radio show!

DJ PhG: Greetings Global Reggae Charts massive,

First off thank you for Felix and Boomrush for the

opportunity.

I am DJ PhG and I am the host of Caribbean Dance

Radio. Caribbean Dance Radio is a weekly podcast

and radio show. We are based in Northern California

and spread our sound across the world. Staples of

the program are “Riddim of the Week” where we

feature and highlight a brand new riddim and the

“Boom Tune of the Week”, a stand out song from the

previous episode.

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

– and is – your motivation?

DJ PhG: I found a love for radio at a young age as

I would turn the radio on before I fell asleep every

night. I find the performance factor of being on the

radio engaging and enthralling.

I didn‘t begin playing on the radio until the age of

23. Before then I had been playing at house parties

and clubs playing mainstream music and mixing in

as much reggae and dancehall as possible. A friend

asked, “did you know that there was a Reggae radio

show in town?”, and from the there I went to the

radio station to learn more. I had my first radio show

2 months soon after. From there I began creating a

podcast version of the radio program to play selections

aimed at a global demographic.

I work in broadcasting because I love the art of

“radio”. It is a different performance style than club

DJing or sound clashing. It allows for insightful pontifications

and humorous banter from a lone man in

the studio to the world surrounding him.

GRC: What spectrum of music do you play in your

show?

DJ PhG: My programs focus on the modern output

of music in the reggae and dancehall genre. Whether

it‘s the hottest new riddim or an up-and-coming

artist we do our best to curate a fluid, forward thinking

program. I enjoy introducing new artists and

songs to my audience.

Artists range from Alkaline, Mortimer, Lila Ike, Govana,

Vybz Kartel, Aidonia, Jesse Royal, Protoje,

Chronixxx, Vybz Kartel, Shenseea, Stylo G, Aza

Lineage, Micah Shemaiah, and of course many more.

GRC: As a voter on the Global Reggae Charts

what is your motivation and after what criteria do

you choose your votes?

DJ PhG: As a voter on the Global Reggae Charts,

some of my votes go to the hidden gems that I feel

are unrepresented. But sometimes a big tune is just

that, a BIG TUNE, so it will get my vote.

It‘s all about the feeling that the song gives me. If I

think about a song and a smile spontaneously goes

across my face, that‘s a good song.

GRC: Which artists have you found most inspiring

lately?

DJ PhG: Mortimer. He has a voice that has a soulful

expression from the heart. I enjoy the patterns he

creates and his singing style.

Reemah

Roots reggae music has a new face. Reemah, hailing from the island of St.

Croix, is one of the new roots revolutionaries in this time and space encouraging

all those that listen with an uplifting and spiritual message. Having

always been passionate about stimulating the mind and soul through

music, Reemah has been planting the seeds of a divine flame, bringing

awareness with each social commentary that is seemingly wrapped in a

gritty, unapologetic yet sweetly satisfying package. With her new album

Breaking News she enters the Global Reggae Charts directly at #10, so we

decided to honor her as the Artist of the Month.

INTERVIEW

BUSINESS

INSIGHT

In the business insight section our focus goes to South

Africa this month. Lerato “MissLee” Phiri gives some

insight on the reggae scene in South Africa, her work

with MzansiReggae and reggae on the african

continent.

Global Reggae Charts: Greetings MissLee. You are

the founder of MzansiReggae and a voter on the Global

Reggae Charts. We’ll talk about your work and

the situation of reggae in South Africa. But let’s start

with you as a person. Could you give a litte insight

about yourself and what you are doing? How did

you get into reggae and what is your motivation to

spend all the time and energy for this music?

global reggae charts

insight

Dube who has left us a legacy and a sort of blueprint.

She worked with some musicians who had worked

with her late father, but she has also carved her own

style which she calls ethno soul ragga. You would

need to listen to her song “Umendo”, to understand

the ethno part. The sounds are typical from Zululand.

You can hear it clearly on Phumi Maduna and Thuthukani

Cele‘s Song: “Tribute to Luky Dube Phumi

MissLee: My name is Lerato Phiri, known as

MissLee. I am the founder of MzansiReggae, an

online reggae magazine in South Africa that caters to

the Reggae culture. I was born and raised in Soweto,

Johannesburg and I have been listening to reggae for

as long as I can remember. I had a short stint at an

online radio station DeliRadio.it, presenting a show

called Sistas Chant, focusing on Sisters in Reggae.

South Africa is affectionately called Mzansi by the

locals, hence the name MzansiReggae. The magazine

basically gave me the opportunity to become

an active supporter instead of a passive supporter

of reggae. The platform was created in response to

a lack of online presence and mainstream coverage

of reggae culture and music in South Africa, thereby

creating a space for the reggae community in Mzansi.

Above all, I created this platform simply for the

love of reggae.

GRC: Talking about South African reggae, is there

a special style or aesthetic for South African reggae

and dancehall? Maybe you can name some artists

the rest of the world should know in order to get a

proper idea about the music.

ML: I would point out Nkulee Dube who is currently

hitting the European Festival Circuit, for two years in

a row now. Her music is influenced by her dad Lucky

Maduna” - while Thutukani Cele has been with Lucky

from the early days and is reputed to have contributed

heavily in creating this, what I call, fusion of

mbaqanga with reggae, that Lucky Dube would carry

across the globe. That particular sound has been carried

by the older generation, the foundation fathers,

and is unique to SA.

The younger generation is obviously keeping with the

times, experimenting, fusing dancehall with other

popular genres like kwaito (a variant of house music

featuring the use of African sounds and samples) and

hip hop and house/gqom - the 3 most popular and

dominating genres in SA; just like their counterparts

are doing in the rest of Africa. There is now a thin line

between dancehall and afro beat that is coming out

of the west African region.

Black Dillinger is still leading in terms of popularity,

but there are way too many rising youths with raw

talent in the ghettos that unfortunately lack exposure,

resources, and grooming. We get to hear them a

lot at local dances and open mics, but most of them

never make it to the recording studio to put out a

quality product. And of course marketing and promotion

is a real issue. I could also mention NC Dread

who is a hardworking artist and has made some inroads

in other African Countries like Ghana, where he

was even nominated at the BASS (Ghana Reggae and

Dancehall Music) Awards in 2016, and has worked

with other artists from African countries like Kenya,

Nigeria and Zimbabwe. You would need to listen to

“Baddest”, a song which had 9 artists from 7 different

African countries.

Another aesthetic of reggae/dancehall is delivering

the songs in indigenous languages, and two people

come to mind. One, Chantty Natural, who sings in

Setswana and has baptised his music as Tswans-

Hall, that is Dancehall + Setswana = TswansHall. You

would need to listen to “Mmalefatshe”, one of his

most popular songs to date. Fire Keepers Riddim has

a few artists doing TswansHall, youths like Blakka

Yute, Red I Scorch, and Ragga Damdee are pushing.

Then there is a youth called Ras Canly who scooped

the Song of The Year Award (regional awards) with

his song “Vhutshilo Rito Fhana” delivered in xiVenda,

from the Limpopo region which has the highest

concentration of reggae fans, music, and artists here

in SA.

Luwe Da Lion is also another youth to look out for,

he has already voiced on some heavy South African

Riddims like Live & Joy and Thando.

Then we have another variation of dancehall coming

from the Western Cape, which is a subculture on

its own. It‘s really influenced by the area, and most

artists from there sing in Afrikaans Taal (dutch Slang)

and it‘s sounds more like electronic music. You‘d

have to listen to it to understand it, there are a few

artists also spearheading this genre.

I could go on...but let me leave it here. As you can

see, we have not found a voice yet, its regional and

has different influences and different supporters.

There are other artists worth mentioning but it will

take up all the time and space!

GRC: You said there was a lack of mainstream coverage

of reggae in the media before MzansiReggae.

How is the South African reggae scene organized?

What role do sound systems, live shows, radio, magazines,

the internet, and social media play?

ML: Well, there still is a lack of mainstream coverage,

we are simply a niche, our artists need that grand

national exposure that would help galvanise into

international exposure. MzansiReggae is playing its

part especially online.

When it comes to radio, there are a lot of community

radio stations that program reggae and dancehall.

The broadcasting corporations‘ radio stations also

have reggae slots, but it‘s more of an obligation than

anything. Slots are usually an hour long and the

hosts mostly play older reggae and hardly anything

new and mostly international and less local. So

yeah, it‘s still a struggle. Some people are moving to

online radio and basically creating their own space

for reggae.

Sound systems play a serious role in the scene, just

like the sound systems of Jamaica back then, it‘s

these guys who are pushing reggae and dancehall,

they are the ones winning over crossover audiences.

They are the ones playing reggae and they push

hard to make things happens, mostly from their

own pockets with little reward. African Storm Sound

System is the most popular for dancehall, it‘s where

the mainstream goes to when it wants to include

dancehall in their programming. They (African Storm)

hosts a Thursday night session that has outrun most

regular gigs (dancehall or otherwise) and it‘s still

going strong, the venue is packed week in and week

out. One cannot come to Jozi (Johannesburg) and

not go to Fire Thursdays. They also host the Annual

Dancehall Queen competition.

Kebra Ethiopia Sound is the ambassador of dub.

They hold dances in the ghettos and block the road

to make way for the King Steppas. The King & Queen

Steppa is a sort of dance born in the ghettos, unique

to South Africa, and Kebra Ethiopia has brought it

to the outside world. They tour the world playing

at major dub destivals in Europe and South America,

they have been to Mexico, Brazil, Italy, France,

Holland, etc., and with them, they introduce the King

Steppa. It‘s got many variations, and differs from

region to region and goes very very very well with

dub and roots reggae. Almost every sunday there is

a dance in the ghetto where the King Steppa is the

staple of the day.

As for live shows, the struggle is really hard, though

we do have some amazing live bands. The venues

are still skeptical of hosting a reggae gig, the mainstream

never invites us to the socalled “multi-genre

events” so there is really little stage time for artists.

GRC: When an artist wants to target the South African

market, is there something he/she should know

in order to have a chance with the local audience?

ML: Yho, thats a tough one. As I have highlighted in

the beginning, the market is fragmented, regional,

and cliqued. The latter is a major hindrance to the

progress of reggae. Their loyalty game is on another

level. A lot of people are going to be angry with me

for not mentioning their artist in their clique. It‘s

really annoying, I must be honest. Promoters are not

objective, they will always put on a lineup with the

artists that are in their clique, even when the artist is

not suitable for that particular gig; but they will just

put them on anyway, even when a better artist is

available. The end result is we see the same artists at

every gig. Even with the audience, they are loyal to a

group, not necessarily the music. Some of the names I

have mentioned, you will find that most do not know

about them because they do not belong to the clique

that one follows. So good luck in breaking into those

cliques.

GRC: Maybe you could give your view on the broader

African reggae market. How connected is the market,

and would you say it’s healthy?

ML: Its healthy alright. There is so much reggae

coming from Africa. Each country boosts their own legends,

its own derivation, its own sub culture its own

reggae festival. Take Zimbabwe for instance, they formulated

their own Zimdancehall with their very own

Zimdancehall stars and celebrities and have made the

breakthrough into the mainstream and now are being

played in households and not just in clubs. There are

so many good artists it‘s hard to keep up. We have

reggae coming from the francophone countries like

Réunion Islands, Senegal, Guinea etc. We have reggae

artists as far as Morocco and Tunisia. Can‘t mention

Africa and reggae and Leave out The Gambia, Guinea,

Ghana, Kenya and, Uganda. Reggae is fermenting

here. Every Ghetto youth is a superstar. You can check

out the Malawi weekly Charts on Facebook. Nigeria

(and the rest of Africa) was mourning the passing

away of Ras Kimono, and Majek Fashek was recently

honoured at City Walk anniversary. In Zambia they

hosted the One Love Festival and it was mad. Rocky

Dawuni from Ghana was nominated for the Grammy

Award in 2016. Tiken Jah Fakoly is still putting out

relevant music and has kept and grown his loyal fan

base. Born Afrikan is soon to release his single in combination

with Morgan Heritage. We have big reggae

festivals, (yes we do, lol, MzansiReggae is going to

publish the list, #ReggaeinAfrica, soon come).

Chronixx will be performing in Gambia come December,

he also hinted Ghana, and just recently performed

in Kenya, for the 3rd time I think. Ask Mavado about

his reception in Gambia. Ask Busy Signal, Konshens,

Charly Black, Romain Virgo, Jah Cure, Beenie Man,

Chris Martin, Jr. Gong, Freddy McGregor, Capleton,

I can go on. Ask them, and they will tell you. Some

will tell you about how they were welcomed at the

airport and driven through the town waving at their

fans, like some president procession of some sort, ask

them they will tell you. Africa is the last frontier for

reggae. This is where reggae is preserved. It makes

sense cos reggae is African music that originated in

Jamaica, that‘s all.

Yes, I know, it doesn‘t seem like it or look like it, but I

am telling you it is healthy. Just because it‘s not glitzy

and glamorous it doesn‘t mean it doesn‘t exist. And

personally I am also glad that it‘s not under the limelight.

Because you know what happens when corporations

gets into it. Just look at hip hop, it was taken

away from its originators and got watered down and

commercialised and has gone through some weird

mutations! I would not want for reggae and dancehall

to go that route, hence I feel it is somewhat a blessing

in disguise that we are not under the commercial

limelight. So I pray please let reggae not be infested

by capitalism. Yes, I understand that artists have got

to eat, but you can still do it without these vulture

cultures for profit, no?

Dancehall is highly susceptible to go commercial. Our

biggest “African Reggae” star right now does afro

beat more than dancehall. Afro beat is much more popular

than dancehall and has seen its artists making it

big, like really big, on the continent and globally. But

you will be hard pressed to hear dancehall in those

tunes that come out from our African “Kings of dancehall”.Dancehall

has been watered down to afro beat,

my feeling is that these guys should just go on and

declare themselves afro beat artists and compete in

that arena. It brings the cash and the fame, but does

not do much for dancehall; for the culture, it‘s just

pretty much selling it to the highest bidder. Afro beat

is afro beat, dancehall is dancehall. That‘s just me, I

am a purist I guess...lol.

people message music, revolutionary lyrical content,

music that keeps us “woke” music that speaks

to the soul, music that comes from Africa, for

Africans by Africans - home and abroad.

GRC: Would you say it is possible to talk about

“African Reggae” the way I could talk about European

or North American reggae?

ML: Oh, I did not realise that we have these

categories. As for “African Reggae” yes you could

talk about it, as in reggae music made in Africa; or

African-based reggae artists; or reggae in Africa.

We also have a number of artists based in Europe

mostly, that are repping for Africa the same way

and have found some small commercial success.

All of this encompasses what African Reggae is all

about. We have a few self-declared African dancehall

kings, but that‘s mainly just for hype and promotion

and commercial purposes, not so much of

conquering the whole of Africa in a way. As I have

pointed out before, each country has got its own

sensibilities, style, legends, fusion of local dialects

and music, and so forth; and together, collectively

we form and shape what you refer to as African

reggae. Reggae is African Music Made in Jamaica.
