Daddy Freddy is probably the biggest catalyst for my love of Dancehall so it’s great to see him still putting out such strong tracks and even evolving his style, opting for a more subdued flow that somehow manages not to lose any of his trademark intensity. It works beautifully over STG’s production, a smooth jazzy guitar lick over a solid Dancehall beat, the type of instrumental that you could let run all day long whilst every vocalist does their thing. In this instance there are just 2 guests: Action Fire who I feel I haven’t heard from in some time; and Blackout JA – a firm favourite of the underground UK reggae scene. It’s a strong combo and this track is guaranteed to get a whole lot of play from me this summer.
You can catch Daddy Freddy and Unit 137 (which includes STG of course) at the Hidden Woods this Boomtown.
