Albums radio missed out on
Richie Spice - Soothing Sounds
Arguably the best album recorded in Jamaica in 2012. The singer delivers big time on this acoustic set, co-produced by guitarist Mitchum 'Khan' Chin.
Pentateuch - Genesis
Another of the bands pouring from the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts, the quintet throws down 14 original songs one-drop style. Produced by Paul 'Computer Paul' Henton.
Yasus Afari - Ancient Future
Always probing, the poet addresses various social issues with a fusion of roots, dancehall and rap.
Artistes to watch in 2013
Etana: Her highlyanticipated album, Better Tomorrow, is expected to drop in February.
Pressure: Big things are in store for the US Virgin Islands singer, who made a mark three years ago with Love and Affection.
Popcaan: With a longawaited album the artiste could breathe new life into ailing dancehall.
