One of Depeche Mode’s most divisive albums ever is getting a tenth year anniversary re-release of sorts, with all 3 of the album’s singles getting the vinyl treatment in a six-disc collection that not only includes the 3 singles, but remastered/remixed versions of the brilliant tracks. The group has made great use of vinyl singles over the past few decades, using them as an opportunity to show off remixes of songs that would otherwise not fit in on any of their studio albums.
In 2015 Rocky Dawuni became the first Ghanaian to be nominated for a GRAMMY Award, for his electrifying sixth album, ‘Branches Of The Same Tree’, in the Best Reggae Album category. Dawuni isn’t strictly a Reggae artist; he encorporates the style into his music, but it’s part of an amalgam of styles, including Afrobeat, Highlife, traditional Ghanaian folk, dancehall, jazz, North American soul, RnB, and electropop. He calls his sound Afro Roots: there’s nothing else quite like it.
