Koffee gained recognition within the Jamaican music scene after winning a Grammy for her EP Rapture in 2020 (the first for such a young artist and the first for a female). Her first album draws inspiration from Bob Marley. For example, on x10, she overlays her vocals on a sample from Redemption Song, one of the reggae legend’s biggest hits, much like Lauryn Hill did with Turn Your Lights Down Low in 1999. It’s no coincidence that Koffee has found success outside the Caribbean island’s borders, becoming a sensation in the world of pop after her first track Burning in 2017. She’s got everyone captivated by her versatility.

This first studio album, more mellow and less militant that her first EP, once again demonstrates the Jamaican’s vocal dexterity. She’s able to keep her voice light and swift, and her music features sung passages as well as toasts, which follow the style of the island’s great singjay artists (Barrington Levy and Sizzla). Musically, she keeps one foot firmly within the boundaries of the reggae roots revival instigated by her mentors, Chronixx and Protoje, however, she still flirts with the afrobeat style popular in West Africa. This is evident on tracks such as West IndiesLockdown and Pull Up, all produced by Jae5, the man behind the hits from Burna Boy and Mr Eazi. She’s navigating through no man’s land, dipping her toes into dancehall, roots, hip-hop and Afro-Caribbean rhythms. She sings, chants and switches up her flow with impressive ease; Koffee is definitely onto something. © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz

Bob Marley’s Unfinished Trilogy

It was precisely 40 years ago that Bob Marley released his final album, Uprising, the climax to his political trilogy (with Survival and Confrontation) that was left unfinished after Marley was taken by cancer in 1981. Let us look back at this Jamaican prophet’s shift towards militarism during his last three years on Earth.

Reggaeton in 10 Albums

A combination of Jamaican dancehall, American hip-hop, Caribbean rhythms and Spanish wit, reggaeton has, since its birth in the early 90s, shaken the world of pop music time and time again. From DJ Playero’s first mixtapes to Daddy Yankee’s “Barrio Fino” and Don Chezina’s “Tra-Tra-Tra, Puerto Rican musicians and their Colombian counterparts in Medellin have done their utmost to take over the world. In the last decade, they have done just that thanks to artists such as Luis Fonsi, J. Balvin and Bad Bunny. Read on for 10 of the genre’s most important albums. Reggaeton won’t be going anywhere any time soon.

David Rodigan, the voice of reggae

For forty years, David Rodigan has been the voice of reggae on British radio. Since his early beginnings on BBC Radio London in 1978, this enthusiast has gone well beyond his function of radio presenter, as he went mixing in the clubs and festivals and became a world champion of soundclash, a Jamaican tradition that confronts DJs (the “selectors”) in a disc against disc duel, with the help of a special version of reggae classics called “dubplates”—the artist changing the lyrics to sing the praises of the selector. As he released, in early 2018 his book My Life in Reggae, David Rodigan talks with Qobuz about those secret songs, his trips to Jamaica, his frantic scene play or even his “mystical” meeting with Bob Marley.
