Dadda : big noise from Jamrock

Amir Jahfar Fyffe, popularly known as "DADDA" is one of the best new things we have heard out of jamrock (Jamaica) for a long time. We have not a clue how old he is, but when someone is as talented as this, who cares? What we do know is that Dadda is the nephew of veteran dancehall female artist "lady g" (janice fyffe) and the grandson of kenroy fyffe,"tallash" who have done back up vocals for artist such as "cornell campbell" "bunny wailer" "i jahman levi" "congos ashanti" and the list goes on!! dadda had performed on most of the major events and festival held in Jamaica...lets hope he visits the UK soon.
Below is his excellent tribute to Robert Nester Marley, which we would love to know where to buy/download as we are itching to play this, and as soon as we find out we will let you know...hopefully we can do an interview as well.

Gun's dont kill people...Major Lazer (remixes) do!

If you have been living in a cave, or somewhere like Ipswich perhaps, you might not have picked up on Major Lazer's exellent bombastic bashment album project 'Guns don't kill people, Lazer's do'.

We recomend you buy the album, but to wet your appetite we have posted a link to this excellent re-rub by dj cheezy p. There is a whole 'assload' of mixes at our friends blog (60 in total)

We also have to thank the excellent chromekids for tipping us off on this one
