Best Swedish reggae albums

In December last year acclaimed Swedish reggae blog Svereggae (formerly Svenska Reggaebloggen) appointed – among its readers – the best Swedish reggae albums during the years 2000-2009.

The selection procedure was rather advanced and the whole list consists of 77 albums, all placed in order of precedence.

Popular singjay Kapten Röd’s debut album Stjärnorna finns här released in 2007 won by far and got way more votes than any other album.

If you interested in Swedish reggae, check out the ten best albums below. If you are interested in all 77 albums, you should check this article on Svereggae.

Musical wish list for Uppsala Reggae Festival

Uppsala Reggae Festival is the largest reggae festival in the Nordics and this year it’s a 10 year anniversary with some of the biggest artists of all time.

Legendary roots veterans such as the Abyssinians and Bunny Wailer perform along with fresh talents such as dancehall stars Mavado and Busy Signal. There are also plenty of domestic acts, for example Million Stylez, Kalle Baah and Serengeti.

The crew behind the festival has also invited three well-acclaimed sound systems – Meditative Sounds, Channel One Sound and Stone Love.

The festival starts on Thursday August 5th and ends on Saturday August 7th. Reggaemani will cover the festival on Friday and Saturday and will also cooperate with Svenska Reggaebloggen and Reggaefoto.se. Svenska Reggaebloggen is specialized in Swedish reggae and Reggaefoto is a site dedicated to reggae photography.

As a warm up, I’ve compiled ten of my favorite tunes for this year’s festival. It’s a mixture of old and new.

Mavado – Nine Lives
Abyssinians – Satta Massa Gana
Busy Signal – Beep
Million Stylez & Busy Signal – As Mi Forward
Peetah Morgan & Busy Signal – Unfair
Peetah Morgan – Di Government
Alborosie – Rudie Don’t Fear
Jah Cure – Save Yourself
Midnite – Pagan, Pay Gone
Anthony B – Heavy Load
