Finally, after a year in the reggae wilderness, Rongorock releases it’s followup to last years “Oystah Card” by Mark Professor which caught the attention of everyone from Rodigan to Roots Manuva.
Since then Wrongtom’s been locked away in the studio with various vocalists, the fruits of which will soon be unleashed on the world, starting here with this fast-chat two-sider from UK reggae veteran Daddy Gadman.
Gad found his feet back in the late 80’s with a succession of sides for Jah Tubby’s Y&D label then hung up the mic for a bit til Mark Professor invited him to join Wreck It Up Crew where he continues to rock the set in his inimitable way, drawing from 3 decades of experience, his lyrics steeped in social commentary and peppered with a rye sense of humour harking back to the heyday of UK MC’s in the 80’s.
On “No Human”, Gad rides the Suzy rhythm (last heard on the Wrongtom Meets Deemas J album) tackling human rights and bringing them down to street level. “Mic Shy” sees Gad pontificating on the perils of dodgy mic setups and sketchy sound systems, revisiting one of his classic Y&D lyrics and reworking it for the Oystah rhythm.
