Carhartt WIP Radio August 2018

Trojan Radio Show

 

 

For this month’s Carhartt WIP Radio Show, we present almost two hours minutes of Trojan Records music, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the iconic reggae label. Curated by Canadian DJ, producer and record collector Scott Monteith, aka Deadbeat, the show sees him dig deep into his personal collection and the archives of Trojan Records to conduct a mix that mirrors the many ska, rocksteady, reggae and dub hues of the British label.

Founded in 1968, Trojan introduced reggae to a global audience while scoring UK chart hits with artists such as The Upsetters, Desmond Dekker, Jimmy Cliff and The Maytals. Additionally, the label licensed Jamaican music by legendary producers such as Duke Reid and Leslie Kong, helping take their sounds global.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary, Carhartt WIP has also joined forces with Trojan Records to create a capsule collection featuring feverish graphics by the Chicago based design collective Boot Boyz, who were given access to the vast Trojan graphic archive.

As ever, to accompany the show, we sat down with its creator – a man who has been known for his very own version of dub-laden minimal electronic music for the past two decades – as well as speaking to reggae author and Riddim magazine journalist David Katz and legendary British film director, musician and DJ Don Letts, to find out how they feel about the record company that once has punks dancing to reggae riddims.
