Lt. Stitchie – Like An Arrow

Much as I loved the heavyweights of late 80s Dancehall such as Shabba Ranks and Ninjaman , my favourite Jamaican artists back then (not including Daddy Freddy as we’ll claim him as a Brit for these purposes) were Papa San and Lt. Stitchie. They had so much character and the best flows. Their 1989 Sting performance is an absolute highlight and subsequent appearances have been equally as strong. Although we don’t have both of them at Boomtown, I’m more than happy to have Stitchie alongside the mighty Manudigital on Lion’s Den. His pedigree is strong, the only artist to have 14 Number 1 songs in one calendar year and the first Dancehall artists on the Billboard charts, but just listen to this new track and he’s lost none of his style, power or charisma! I’m really looking forwards to his show.
