Christmas Gifts for People Who Love Jamaica #4: For The Record.

posted on December 4th, 2013 by in Design, Jamaican Music, Stuff

For the Record

For day 4 of the SEEN Christmas 2013 gift guide, we picked a book released by Red Bull’s Music Academy.

“For the record” features 15 conversations with “people who have shaped the way we listen to music”. While from a Jamaica-lovers’ perspective, the talks between Adrian Sherwood and Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry as well as Matias Aguayo and Sly & Robbie are probably the most interesting, e.g. the meet-ups of Benny Ill and Moritz von Oswald or Just Blaze and Paul Riser are definitely worth reading, too.

The 400 pages hardcover book is available from Die Gestalten.
