EDITORS’ NOTES

Another year, another Reggae Gold temperature check courtesy of VP Records. Among your 2019 standouts: the swinging lovers rock of Naomi Cowan’s “Paradise Plum”; Squash’s breezy, Auto-Tuned “Never Die”; solid new material from perennials like Busy Signal (“One Way”) and Agent Sasco (“Banks of the Hope”); and styles ranging from crossover-contemporary (Stylo G’s Nicki Minaj- and Vybz Kartel-featuring remix for “Touch Down”) to comfortably throwback (Queen Ifrica’s uplifting “To See”). As usual, it's a solid survey of Caribbean currents from one of reggae’s most enduring labels.
