This week’s Tropical Heat podcast was put together by Joscha Hoffman (Silly Walks Disco).
Silly Walks Discotheque is the follow up project of the 1991 founded german Reggae soundsystem Silly Walks Movement and has, with founding member Oliver Schrader and MC Joscha still 2/3 of the known crew on the road, been bringing all kind of caribbean flavours to the massives.
Silly Walks have been major influentials for us loving Reggae music and Jamaica as much as we do today. Back in 1995, they were featured on German TV show “Lost in Music” talking about their boat trips from Hamburg to London to buy the latest Jamaican 45s – at a time when we hardly knew anything about Dub, Reggae, and Dancehall.
It’s really a pleasure to still see Oliver and Joscha doing their thing today and keeping up with the latest trends in Jamaican music.
