Trojan Records has announced a series of releases in the run up to the 50th anniversary of Jamaican independence on 6 Aug. Each of the monthly releases will focus on a different label or artist, and it kicked off with three Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry-themed records last month. A look back through the archives of the Treasure Island label will follow this month, with classic Island Records artists showcased in May.
Johnny Hudson, Head of Marketing at Trojan Records told CMU: “The themed monthly releases are just one of a number of exciting initiatives we are rolling out to mark the 50th anniversary of Jamaican independence this year. Trojan Records and its artists have played a significant part in the history and cultural influence of Jamaican music, and so we’re incredibly excited to be associated with this landmark event. We’re also looking forward to announcing several other exciting partnerships for this year soon too”.
