Yes folks, on this Roots-Edition of Ackee & Saltfish you’re in for a treat, as we present some crucial new releases and pre-releases… but remember: you heard it first on Ackee & Saltfish, Austrias premier Reggae-show on Orange 94.0 FM !
Check out what we have in store for you:
MIDNITE- I GRADE: Let Live
I-Grade, the label that’s responsible for releasing and distributing first-rate Roots-Reggae, has put out another excellent colaboration with Virgin Island’s roots-sensation Midnite: „Let Live“. This is a very well produced album that crosses the borders to other music-genres like R’n’B or even HipHop. Don’t get me wrong: The roots are still there, but the musical horizon is much broader than on previous releases. Highly recommended… check http://www.igraderecords.com for more info.
JAH MEEK: Touched By An Angel
You might know Jah Meek from his works with „Söhne Mannheims“ or with Uwe Banton’s „Movements“, but now time is due for his first solo-album „Touched By An Angel“ (release-date: February 2005). We don’t have the album in hands yet, but luckily we’re able to present you some tracks from it – like the stunning single „Everything Is Possible“ in combination with Luciano. Watch out for Jah Meek… this man will make it big time when the album drops. Meanwhile, check http://www.jahmeek.com for more information.
EXCLUSIVES FROM THE HOUSE OF RIDDIM
Oh yes, the House of Riddim is busy like never before: Not only did Sam Gilly’s crew produce Jah Meek’s new album, they have also created the fresh „Burning“- and „Peace“-riddims. Hear selections on both riddims first here on Ackee & Saltfish – featuring Anthony B, Julian Levy, Jahcoustix and many more. Wicked tunes, excellent production is all we can say… all hands up for the mighty House of Riddim!!!
See the House of Riddim live @ the Dub Club/Flex on January 17th… feat. Jahcoustix, El Condorsito, Thai Stylee and Julian Levy.

That’s it for this time, folks… nah, not really: Check out Damian Marley’s current 7 Inch „Welcome To Jamrock“ on this Roots-Edition of Ackee & Saltfish!
Can’t say you’ve never been warned, can you?
