Germany and France have been spoilt rotten for decent reggae mags for years, and we’ve had to put up with the odd half column in dance mags or Steve Barker’s one page in The Wire every month.
The first english language issue of Riddim is just out and is £3.50 with a great cover CD. Nice writing, nice photos, nice layout and all reggae/dancehall/ting. 100 full colour pages with articles on Burro Banton, Jah Cure, Augustus Pablo, Don Corleon, I-Wayne, reggaeton, etc with some nice reviews also.
Should be in discerning newsagents and apparently you can buy it in Borders. Online ordering from issue 2, which will be out in November, if it gets the support it deserves.
