On Perfect Giddimani’s ninth album Reggae Farm Work he has teamed-up with Irie Ites – one the toughest and best production crews around. They have been working with Perfect Giddimani for a number of years and finally a full-length album has materialized.
This album is Perfect Giddimani’s best since Back For the First Time, released in 2011. And they are musically miles apart. Where Back For the First Time was soothing, breezy and beautiful roots, Reggae Farm Work is much of the opposite. It’s fierce, dark and uncompromising contemporary rub a dub with influences ranging from hip-hop to dubstep.
Perfect Giddimani tackles and rides a number of Irie Ites’ baddest riddims, including a devastating new version of their infectious Roots & Culture riddim and the dread hip-hop tinged S.T.F.U complete with strings and curse words.
The riddims – powered by a number of muscular musicians such as Errol “Flabba” Holt, Leroy Mafia, Fluxy and the late Style Scott – take no prisoners and Perfect Giddimani is as expressive as always with his highly unorthodox delivery.
A striking and innovative album that drops like a bomb.
