Irie Up in a store near you

In Irie Up’s latest issue I’ve contributed with two articles – one on the Uppsala Reggae Festival and one on Pete Holdsworth, founder of re-issue label Pressure Sounds.

Uppsala Reggae Festival is the biggest reggae festival in the Nordics and has been hosted by many great artists. This year was no exception.

I interviewed Pete Holdsworth about a year ago. In the interview he talks about his love for reggae and what projects he’d loved being involved in. If you haven’t got any releases from Pressure Sounds in your collection, I strongly recommend you to head over to their web site and purchase several of their essential albums, for example Kool Roots by Earth & Stone or the compilation Life Goes In Circles (Sounds From the Talent Corporation 1974 to 1979).

The latest issue can now be bought in stores around the globe and if you live in Stockholm, you can purchase Irie Up at Downbeat Sounds.
