Alton Ellis passes away
Sad news original from Trojan Records 11.10.2008



Today the music world mourns the passing of Reggae legend Mr. Rocksteady Alton Ellis, who passed away last night after a long struggle against the effects of lymphatic cancer.

As recently reported, Alton had been admitted into hospital after collapsing at a show at London’s 100 Club in August and sadly, despite intensive care, was never able to regain his health.

His talent and influence was immense and his loss will be felt by all those who ever had the pleasure of his company. A kind and modest man, he always had time for his family, friends and fans, and his loss is a terrible blow not only to Jamaican music, but to the world at large.

Menschen im Wind (3): Fluchtpunkt Tarifa

Ein Film von Lutz Gregor

Sorry this is in german only.


Tarifa in Spanien, am südlichsten Zipfel Europas, wird auch die Hauptstadt des Windes genannt. Afrika ist hier zum Greifen nah, nur wenige Kilometer sind es nach Marokko. Tausende Immigranten kommen von Tanger mit kleinen Fischerbooten illegal über das Meer nach Tarifa - wenn der Wind ihnen günstig ist.

Halbzeitpause im Fussballspiel Schweiz gegen Nigeria. Es ist Dienstagabend, 21.30 Uhr. Millionen Nigerianer, die ihrem Team vor den Bildschirmen die Daumen drücken, wissen noch nicht, dass ihre Mannschaft nach dem Abpfiff im fernen Zürich als Sieger vom Platz gehen wird. Dafür erfahren sie im Werbeblock, dass in der Schweiz nicht alles so schön ist, wie sie vielleicht meinen.

We like it DIGITAL

The digital Dancehall Reggae started up in the early 90s. Some Soundbwoys say that it was the hotest era of Reggae Music. This Mixtape features some of the big Riddims of this time and some newer Tunes, because of allways today this is a big influence to the Reggae Producers. We don´t play some superhits on the Filthy (Heads High Mr. Vegas) or Bambam (Murder Chaka Demus & Pliers) or Poco Man Jam (Boom Wha Dis Burro Banton) Riddim but we have lots of legendary British and Jamaican artist chatin on the Joyride, Fever Pitch, Arab Attack, Heat, Mama Riddim and manymany more. Listen carfully !!

Radikal Sunflowers Colectivo
Join the Colectivo


HOT CARIBBEAN VIBES

The Colectivo needed nearly 2 years and now it´s ready to hit the Reggae-Scene
-
the new Album called "Join the Colectivo".
14 Tunes between Dancehall-Reggae, Soca and Reggaeton
including 2 Combinations with Darmstadt sweetest Isabelle and Frankfurts
finest Don Sharicon.
For sure this is nothing for Reggae-Purist, but if you´re able to look over the rim of your teacup you will love this music called "Dancehall Globalista". It will bring you in a good mood, but it allways remembers, that even in the caribbean the sun is not shining always.
A spicy Saxofon meets a funky guitar, deep bass and raw DJ-Vocals in english, spanish and german. So feel the Message, wich is Consciousness, Love & Unity and above all "Shake your bootie".

Listen to the Promo Radio Show
