Eric Rachmany of Rebelution

July 25, 2020

Rebelution's latest album Dub Collection features 15 dub versions of the band's hits, and another five tracks, is absolutely a fun listen.

Micah Pueschel of Iration

June 20, 2020

The world could probably use a lot more positive energy in it right now so there is probably no better time for a new album from Iration, which typically exudes good vibes and good feelings.

March 5, 2018

I first came across SOJA, a reggae infused 8 piece outfit, back in 2009, when their third record Born in Babylon was released. Since that time, they have grown substantially and are a mainstay now on many festival dates, and continue to tour extensively. Poetry in Motion is actually their eighth r…
