Ziggi Recado is a musical therapist.

Ziggi Recado – formerly known only as Ziggi – is a fascinating artist. His earliest work was heavily inspired by dancehall and hip-hop, and then he moved towards roots reggae, but suddenly turned towards funk and rock. An adventurous approach to say the least, and he didn’t stay long in that genre.

Ziggi Recado - TherapeuticHis two EP’s following his funky venture were more or less traditional and well-produced reggae. And he follows this path on his fourth full-length album Therapeutic, produced by acclaimed U.S. production trio Zion I Kings and out on Zion High Records.

Zion I Kings have been very successful over the last couple of years and are responsible for a number of triumphant albums from Midnite, Pressure, Cornell Campbell and Lloyd Brown. And Therapeutic is produced according to the same effective and popular recipe – smooth riddims, skanking guitar, infectious hooks and uplifting arrangements.

The highlights are many, especially the slowly pulsating Earl Sixteen and Taranchyla combination Jah Mercy and the Lutan Fyah combination Guide Ova, with its dub effects and tight drum and bass.

Instead of calling the doctor you could do much better with this album. It will rock both body and mind.
