Big news from famous Reggae Jam Festival out of Germany: Reggae Jam goes to London this August for the first time.
From the Rivers of Bersenbrück (Germany) to the Heart and Soul of UK’s Reggae scene, one of the most popular reggae festivals in Europe is finally coming to London. Since 1994, the superstars of reggae have been doing the honours and filling the sacred walls of the monastery garden in the small northern German town with Caribbean “joie de vivre”. For the first time in its 28-year history, Reggae Jam is celebrating its out-of-town premiere – and not just anywhere, but in the London borough of Brent, the nucleus of Jamaican vibes. Bob Marley lived in this multicultural melting pot in the 70s. From Brent, stars made in Britain like Dennis Brown, Gregory Isaacs or Gappy Ranks carried reggae from here into the worldwide panorama.
After the pandemic, finally huge festivals are scheduled again for summer 2022. Reggae Land Festival seems to be one of this summer UK’s biggest Reggae Festival. Everything is getting ready to offer an incredible weekend, full of the best live reggae, dub, and dancehall artists around the World. Save the dates: July 30th and and 31st
There will be three main stages: The Bowl, The Valley and an entire Carnival Float stage along with dancers and a live authentic steel pan band.
Julian Marley, Bounty Killer & Aston Barrett Jr. from The Wailers are three of the main Artists featured on the discographic project “Reggae Vaccine”. The album actually got consideration for a nomination on the 64th Edition of Grammy Awards to be attended on January 31st 2022. “Reggae vaccine” reached the No.2 on the I-tunes USA Reggae Chart and it could get nominated to win three different categories this year: Best Reggae Album, Album of The Year & Best Album Artwork Cover.
On August 28th 2021, was officially released the videoclip of “Nothing Like Love”, song by J Written. The track was pre-released on Reggaeville in July 2021 and has been gaining traction.
J Written is a young reggae Artist from Kingston, Jamaica. Written’s artistic nature and vibe heard and seen clearly throughout the entire video gives the audience an easy going feeling while successfully sending a message of love to the listener.
“Love is not just the opposite of hate, it is the original feeling when something is beautiful and everything is beautifully created by the Most High” – J-Written said when we asked about the meaning of the tune.
Gege Vibes TV features the International Reggae Artist Warrior King. I had the pleasure of speaking to him about his latest releases: “African love”, featuring the Ghanaian artist MzVee, (a nice tribute to Garnett Silk) produced by Crawba Genius (Jamaica); “One perfect love”, about the universal love of the Almighty God produced by Red Gold Green Label (Italy).
We had the chance once again to interview the worldwide top celebrity Sean Paul, one of the most famous singers out of Jamaica. He released his album “Live n Livin” last March 2021 produced by his own label Dutty Rock Productions. This album achieved an excellent overall response all over the world and was especially appreciated by reggae and dancehall lovers. The epic album has 16 tracks featuring many Jamaican veteran artists as well as those from the new school: Buju Banton, Bugle, Ward 21, Sotto Bless, Busy Signal, Mutabaruka, Stonebwoy, Masicka, Govana, Intence and many more.
