Tappa Zukie's welcome return.

Sampler

Bodyguard turned deejay turned producer Tappa Zukie is back with his first album since the 96’ released 'Deep Roots'. And it’s actually one of his best albums since the 70’s.

But this doesn’t mean that he has been absent from the music business. During this period he has successfully produced other artists as well as running his labels Tappa and Stars. He was for example the producer behind Beres Hammond’s album 'Putting Up Resistance' – probably one of his best albums to date.

Tappa Zukie - X Is Wrong'X is Wrong' is Tappa Zukie’s return to the spotlight. It’s a consistent set that holds 14 tracks, over which he chats conscious and cultural lyrics over classic vintage riddims supplied by Jamaica’s top session musicians.

His voice has changed over the years. It’s deeper and darker and doesn’t have the same amount of excitement and energy as it had in the 70’s and 80’s.

The vintage feeling remains throughout the set, and highlights include the Prince Alla combination Rasta People and Judge I Oh Lord over the much versioned Drum Song riddim.

Maybe not as strong as his albums and productions in the 70’s and 80’s, but a welcome comeback for this prolific artist.
