Welcome to #ToppleUncaged!
Every week, The Canary will be bringing you a new podcast on the media landscape; hosted by me, Steve Topple.
In a special episode, I’m joined by Grammy-nominated musician Protoje. His critically acclaimed 2018 album A Matter of Time followed over a decade of releases. From the worldwide global smash Who Knows (featuring Chronixx), via three previous studio albums and mixtapes, he’s cemented his reputation as not only an ingenious artist, but an outrider of the roots/revival reggae movement that’s coming from Jamaica.
So, I caught up with Protoje in an overarching interview. We discussed A Matter of Time, his progression and influences as an artist, the revival movement and more.

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
