Well ahoy, a touch ragged around the edges this evening but… hey who’s counting? As ever a veritably shameful surplus of excess essential tunage, going down so many avenues that stopping the show turning into one huge genre battle required some restraint… you gets that, but not much.

Sitting in the stench seat this week is the unlikely named Franz Job who isn’t yet another product of Germany’s reggae industry, but actually a dynamite force from TnT (or Trini & Tobago if you prefer, Tobago to be exact). He has picked up the nickname ‘The Eclectic Country Boy’ which I particularly like as it so ‘un-current dancehall’, and has been mentored by the great Gladdy Wax, a chief amongst men. So good credentials,a cracking moniker and …what a tune!!!

This is by far the pick of the bunch for me on the Gorilla riddim from Curtis Lynch Jnr’s Necessary Mayhem camp. There’s also some alright puff-proclaiming tackle from the usual suspects, and a tune where Tarrus Riley just seems to give up in order to unleash his inner ‘la la’s’ (phwert) but nothing comes close to Franz’s, cut which recalls a touch of Courtney Melody and the like, and a time when dancehall was well ..just less aggro.
Enjoy the tune in it’s lo-fi, up for a week fashion, and then please do head off to the Necessary Mayhem webstore and do the right thing by buying a copy…please.

Aromatherapy at the Minx on Thursday, as per usual..8.30 on, free, gowaaaaaaaan….
