organiser of Hong Kong International Reggae Ska Festival
1. King Zepha’s – Northern Sound
Sam Thornton’s brilliant take on contemporary Britain features songwriting of the highest order, brilliant lyrics and a sense of humour that has been one of our most played albums of the year.
2. The Dualers – Palm Trees and 50 Degrees
One of the hardest working Ska bands in the world released a bombastic set of tunes showcasing their great songwriting and a real depth and range of Reggae Ska styles, we couldn’t find a more complete album this year.
3. Prince Fatty – In The Viper’s Shadow
The prolific Prince Fatty continues to release some of the best produced Reggae in the world and the offerings on this slab featuring reworkings of classic Reggae with living legends is a love letter to the genre.
