Cari-Pop Worldwide

Words by Eddie STATS Houghton


It’s true you reap what you sow; a few months back I gave homie and AfroPop Worldwide producer Wills Glasspiegel some game on dub pioneers who were still amongst the living, leads that became interviews for his brand new super-ape of a radio documentary for the Hip Deep segment of APW. When I went to check it I realized that in their mission to cover Afro-diasporic culture in all it’s multiform beauty, Hip Deep has actually been at least neckdeep in Caribbean culture. Check the trailer for Dub: the Medium is the Message below but then go to APW for the interviews with Lee Scratch, Clive Chin and Bullwackies, not to mention recent shows on Trinidad Carnival, Merengue and Afro-Dominican music, Chutney and the Indo-Caribbean diaspora, the zouk rhythm of the French Antilles, the secret history of Reggaeton and more…!
