Chris Blackwell: “There’s A Guy Called Chronixx Who I Think Is Really Great”

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Chris Blackwell and Jimmy Buffett

It looks like it might be reggae week over at Rolling Stone. Besides for running some controversial comments from Snoop Lion about Bunny Wailer, the magazine’s website interviewed Island Records founder Chris Blackwell (that’s him above left, with Jimmy Buffett and friend at Blackwell Rum’s US launch party two years ago), who offered some interesting perspectives on Jamaican music, past and present. Besides for speaking on the 40th anniversary of Bob Marley’s Catch a Fire, Blackwell shouted out some of his favorite current Jamaican acts: Chronixx, No-Maddz, Raging Fyah and Shaggy.

Impressions: Astro Saulter’s Rising Star


Words by Erin MacLeod, Photos by Martei Korley—

“I have no voice but I am not silent. I use tools beyond my physical body to communicate. Across the years my voice has been expressed mostly through the written word via a computer, and now, in recent years it has become my artwork, more than words, that has satisfied my deep need to connect with people in an authentic way.” – Astro Saulter

Redemption Film: “Marley” Trailer + Poster Art

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Talk of Academy Award-winning director Kevin MacDonald’s Marley documentary has been building for while, and it even had its premiere earlier this month in Berlin. But with its North American premiere, at South by Southwest in Austin, just weeks away on March 11, only now has a trailer and poster art for the film emerged. The two-minute clip for Marley—which, while certainly not the first documentary on Bob Marley’s life, is the first to get the Marley family’s full support—promises that the movie will contain previously unheard tracks and never-before-seen footage, while teasing interviews with the usual suspects: Bunny Wailer, Chris Blackwell, Rita Marley, Ziggy. Pretty straightforward. Marley hits theaters on 4/20, ’cause what date would be more appropriate.
