Daddy Freddy – Long Way

• “Long Way” set to a picture of the 7″. Thanks to Jahtari.

7.5 “Great Reggae from Jamaica”

Streamable from December 2014 and issued as a single in February 2015.

Daddy Freddy’s been a long time on the go, must be some 30 years by now. Well I remember his “Rough and Rugged” and “Hypocrites” tunes from the late 80s. I’m pleased to hear he’s still got the magic.

Great press release for this one:

Naram and the Jahtari posse have formed an unlikely alliance with a mysterious gentleman named Colonel Mustard to launch a new label focusing on contemporary music that’s directly inspired by ruffneck 1980s and early 90s dancehall. Operating out of the harsh desert landscapes of Coburgistan, the Colonel is a hard taskmaster, and he’s put Naram and disrupt to work to cook up a trailer load of killer relicks and deadly original riddims.

With the Colonel’s impressive sphere of global influence, the riddims are finding their way to some of the wickedest artists from dancehall’s golden era – as well as brand new talents he’s unearthed to carry on the style and fashion. Watch the ride and don’t test, because the Colonel is stockpiling serious ammunition!

The first artist to grace the new Colonel Mustard imprint is the man Guinness Book of Records found to be the world’s fastest chatter back in 1989 – the incomparable Daddy Freddy. Riding a deadly Naram relick of the Bad Boy Wadat riddim, Long Way finds Freddy marching through an apocalyptic world filled with wickedness and corruption to deliver a frighteningly ruff sermon of righteous indignation against the evil-doers.

Disrupt joins Naram on the version to launch a further warhead against the Babylonians with a menacing dubwise cut.

All Colonel Mustard’s 7″s have been fine-tuned to test any soundsystem’s bass bins – and they’re strictly limited pressing, so get in quick or face the wrath of the Colonel!

Heard on Kevin Robinson’s March 2015 show on Dandelion Radio, the man’s right up there as one of my most trusted selectors.
