KINGSTON, JM, OCTOBER 18TH, 2012 – US based Jamaican Reggae artist Sadiki, returns with his third solo album, “Jah Is The Only King” on November 20, 2012. The self-written, 12-track album is a clear departure from the all lovers rock sound of his previous set. “Jah Is The Only King” offers a compelling blend of conscious reggae tracks and rootsy lovers ballads that showcases the singer/songwriter/producer’s growth and maturity as an artist.
“I’ve been in Jamaica for the last year and a half soaking up the culture and the musical vibes,” commented Sadiki. “This album is an outpouring of that vibe and the ever-changing life lessons that surrounds us all.
Majority of the tracks on “Jah Is The Only King” are produced by top flight Jamaican reggae producer Kemar “Flava” McGregor (Sinead O'Connor, Etana, Cas Haley). Sadiki also worked with the UK’s Chris Peckings (Bitty McLean, Gappy Ranks) and Lloyd Mullings, Netherlands production house/label Area 026 Music, French producers First T & Kross, Japan’s Enjoint and Switzerland’s HearMeNow! Records in order to create a universal reggae sound for the album.
Sadiki has an extensive resume of reggae hits in the United States, Europe and Japan. Signed to Smashing Pumpkins bassist Darcy Wretzky’s and guitarist James Iha’s Scratchie Records (distributed through Mercury Records) in the late 90’s, he released an album under the name Pancho Kryztal. His debut album as Sadiki, “Morning’s Come”(Skinny Bwoy/P-Vine, 2007) was ranked #1 in sales at HMV stores throughout Japan within weeks of its release. His sophomore set, “Lifeline” (Skinny Bwoy/Joe Fraser, 2010) topped the Weekly Star charts and rocketed to the #2 position on the New York & South Florida Reggae Charts. Sadiki is a three-time nominee for “Most Promising Entertainer” at the International Reggae and World Music Awards (IRAWMA).
“Jah Is The Only King” is available immediately on a pre-order basis thru Sadiki’s Bandcamp page. A Preview of the title track "Jah Is The Only King", is available onYouTube.
