With the passing of the reggae masters U Roy (February) and Bunny Wailer (March) it falls to a new generation to take the music forward. Here’s a release from Perfect Giddimani, intended as a tribute to producer and musician Drew Keys who also died earlier this year. It’s a mid-paced electronic rhythm with additions of melodica in the mix and Giddimani’s dancehall-influenced vocal over the top. It’s a sweet and gentle sound, dedicated to those we have lost.
