Daddy Freddy – Daddy Freddy’s in Town (written by Daddy Freddy and Simon Harris and produced and mixed by Simon Harris)
This first caught my eye because it’s a twelve inch maxi-single pressed out on translucent yellow vinyl. When I picked it up, I realized that it’s reggae and of course Erica bought it for me.
Not familiar with Daddy Freddy, I was excited to find out that it is awesome rap roots dancehall, similar to Red Fox or Yellowman. The production is out of this world. The use of Led Zeppelin’s “Black Dog” for a sample is so fun.
If you like rock but don’t love easy going reggae, “Daddy Freddy’s in Town” is the song for you. The combination of multiple styles of music isn’t exactly harmonic, but they do complement each other.
Even the instrumental is fun to listen to, because it’s almost like a Hood Internet track. Simon Harris was on point here for sure. I love it.
