"Perfect "French Connection""

Greg "Perfect" Rose is a Jamaican who is also close to hip hop and reggae leaning to France in search of a producer for his new album, which also logically "French Connection" was baptized. Die producer werd gevonden in de persoon van Sherkhan, die Perfect aan een warm en zomers reggaealbum hielp. That producer was found in the person of Sherkhan, Perfect for those hot summers and helped reggae album.

'French connection' bulkt immers van de zoet binnenglijdende reggae en dancehall en een hier en daar verdwaalde lijn ragga, al blijft Perfect al bij al behoorlijk braaf en vooral érg toegankelijk. 'French Connection' is full because of the sweet reggae and dancehall and sliding inside a stray line here and there ragga, though Perfect all in all pretty good and above all very accessible. Eerder dan rootsreggae, gericht op de diehard rastafarikerels, maakt Perfect muziekjes die zonder moeite op het dichtst bijzijnde parkconcertje kunnen weerklinken, terwijl de ouders van een bekertje rode wijn nippen en de kindertjes wat in het gazon ravotten. Rather than roots reggae, aimed at the diehard guys Rastafarian, Perfect music that makes no effort at the nearest park concert to resound, while the parents of one cup red wine and sipping some children romp in the lawn.

En laat dat nu net het soort reggae zijn wij waar het persoonlijk minder op begrepen hebben. And now let us just the kind of reggae where personally less understood. Doe ons dan maar die opzwepende 'Bobo-special' bijvoorbeeld, waar hij zijn keel toch eens schraapt en ons goedkeurend aan het hoofdknikken krijgt, of 'Son of Jamaica' waarin hij ons aan die goeie oude Arrested Development doet denken. Do us but rousing "Bobo-special" for example, where he scraped his throat yet again and we will nod approvingly at the head, or "Son of Jamaica" where he stand by that good old Arrested Development reminds. Of zelfs het intimistische, op akoestische gitaar begeleide 'Rebel in me', dat ook van Wyclef Jean had kunnen zijn, of het aan Horace Andy schatplichtige 'Mi nah cut my dread'. Or even intimate, on acoustic guitar accompanied 'Rebel in me ", which also could Wyclef Jean, or Horace Andy tributary to the" Mi nah cut my dread. Elders, zoals in '7 is the number' of het jazzy 'Family man' is het meezinggehalte wel erg hoog. Elsewhere, as has the number '7 'or the jazzy "Family Man" is the sing very high level. Dit lijkt meer op UB40 dan op de reggae die nonkel Bob Marley in gedachten had. This seems more than UB40 reggae that uncle Bob Marley had in mind.

Maar goed, Perfect regelde uiteindelijk wel een uitgebreide en gevarieerde staalkaart van waar het eiland Jamaica voor staat en ook dat is een verdienste - reggae als genre waarvan je nog eens iets kunt opsteken , haha. Anyway, eventually arranged a Perfect varied and extensive sample of the island where Jamaica stands for and that is one merit - reggae as a genre where you can still learn something, haha. Kortom: een plaatje waarvoor wij, alles bij elkaar, toch nog door de knieën gaan. In short: an image which we, all together, still the knees. En laat dat nu net het favoriete danspasje binnen het genre zijn. And that just now the favorite dance step in the genre.

If you havent heard about the Hand Cart Bwoy then you are indeed missing out on one of the most powerful, intriguing and refreshing voices in todays Reggae/ Dancehall scene. We are speaking of Perfect, the same artiste with the current hits 'Hit Dem, Bobo Nuh Shave' and 'Lock Mi Up'. Many have heard his songs and seen him perform, and are still in awe as to why this remarkable entertainer has been kept from them so long. Born on March 26, Greg Rose is the third child in a family of four children. He grew up in the cool hills of Bamboo, which is south of St. Anns Bay and east of Browns Town, in the parish of St. Ann. Perfect has always been exposed to various genres of music, and spent many evenings listening to and singing his favorite songs. His father owned several jukeboxes, giving him full exposure to rhythm of the Jamaican people. He counts Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Toots Hibbert as some of his early favourites. From as early as nine years old he was a primary school entertainer. This stardom exploded as he entered York Castle High and by the eighth grade he was a superstar performing regularly at the schools fetes and concerts, and at similar events at other schools. Thereafter, he was branded - Mr. Perfect. After leaving high school, Perfect came to Kingston to get a first hand understanding of the business [music], and spent time at several recording studios, including Penthouse, King Jammys and Arrows, fine-tuning his art. Returning to St. Ann, he maintained his closeness with music and started appearing at dances and stage shows at every chance he could. This caused his popularity to soar, and he was on the lips of everyone. Determined to break into mainstream recording, Perfect did a few self-produced recordings in 2001. Building on that successful effort, he soon recorded the album Sweet and Black, which has a blend of classical and refreshingly new soul reaching messages. Empress Mi Love and Turn Him Down from that CD, still continue to receive much air and club play after more than two years. Today the airwaves are blazing with the smash hit 'Hand Cart'. Other major singles being currently played include - Johnny, Bend Dem and 'All Fi Themselves', signaling his prime time repertoire. And, as such he has already been receiving awards, placing third in IRIE FMs Big Break competition held in October 2003. He has been making regular show appearances, and to top it off he 'Locked Up' Sumfest, the world's greatest reggae show, with a scintillating performance on Dancehall Night 2004. A Rastafarian, Perfects lyrics are deep and straightforward, yet unforgettably melodious, leaving you to keep listening to them over and over. Simply put, he keeps his lyrics real, and apologetically uses it as his medium in the education and self-awareness of oppressed people. So, are you ready for the Hand Cart Bwoy? - As radio jocks say, Here is the man, who is perfectly Perfect ".
