#LIBERATION is the ongoing process in the evolution of Ziggi Recado.
On March 8, 2012 Dutch Reggae Star Ziggi Recado will release his EP “Liberation”. The Ep is a 6 tracks cd with some fresh roots reggae music. With the EP Ziggi goes back to his carribean roots..
2011 was a significant year for Ziggi. His third studio album “Ziggi Recado” was released in April 2011 by VP Records/Rock(n)Vibes. This was followed by “The Green Tour” where Ziggi and his Renaissance band toured extensively in Europe. Ziggi also appeared on the Reggae for Japan in New York and left a very positive impression in the U.S.
All seemed well with Ziggi until the surprising news in August that Ziggi and Rock(N)Vibes, the label/management which Ziggi had been with from the start of his career (2005) would be parting ways. When asked about the reason for the split, Ziggi said : “It boiled down to us having different views about how I should advance my career, also our personal relationship had changed very much during the years as we both had alot of changes in our personal life”.
“At the end it got to the point where it didn’t feel right at all”. This was a significant change for Ziggi as it left him without management and/or a label for the first time.
#LIBERATION is a 6 track EP and his first “independent” project. “I was fortunate enough to link with some really positive people who I felt could just ride with what I had going on. I work with Herbalize It Agency who basically cover tourmanagement functions plus some management aspects of my career. Decko and Dredda Records were very interested and positive about my project and I ended up with a great, small, motivated team to help me get this project done.” “What I knew I wanted for sure was to give the people music, at the end that’s what it’s about.” “That’s why this EP will be for free for a limited time”. “I intend to put out more music than before, always felt that was something that would be great for me”.
“This will be my “EP year” as an EP with Curtis Lynch (Necessary Mayhem) and Decko (Dredda Records) is also in the making”. “Feelin liberated and definitely motivated like never before, I’m sure you’ll hear it in the music”.
