Editors Choice: Top 10 Roots Reggae Albums Of All Times

As someone who listens to music randomly and without any rules, skimming through artists as I feel, I felt compelled to compile my top ten favorite roots reggae albums. Each of these ten albums grounds and organizes me, and in those rare moments, I listen to music in order, without changing my opinion over the years. The albums are an editor's choice, and I did not include some greats like The Gladiators, Mighty Diamonds, The Abyssinians, Heptons, Black Slate, or […]

Album Review: Haile Israel – A Griot’s Journey

Biography I must admit that I first heard of Haile Israel when I researched the biography of Jalani Horton.

If I'm not mistaken, he embarked on a solo career in 2016. The first album is "Each One […]

Album review “Sound Therapy” by Manjul

Analyst: Nenad Pekez Calling the album "sound therapy" is at least ambitious, if not pretentious. By doing so, you impose on yourself the pressure of the listeners who will expect "something more" from such a release than a regular album; they will expect the right therapy. Of course, all this is true if you are not Julien Souletie, a French multi-instrumentalist, producer, singer, and audio engineer better known as Manjul. He holds in his little finger technical skills and makes […]

We were there when he was with our old […]
