Skarra Mucci presents his new album, Perfect Timing, an ode to reggae of all eras, full of nods to the sound system culture. From the choice of the featurings to that of the beats created by Undisputed Records, nothing is left to chance in this eighth studio work by the Jamaican artist living in Barcelona, which offers a journey through the highlights of this rich culture which has never ceased to evolve.
Perfect Timing features notable collaborations: Yannis Odua on Roots Rock Reggae, the first single from the LP; L’Entourloop in the powerful Street Dance; or the Jamaican legend Johnny Osbourne in a version of his 80s classic What A La La, performed by French riddim maker Manudigital.
The album opens with Here I Come, a hybrid roots-tinged hip-hop riddim; brass and percussion resonate throughout the track as Skarra Mucci gives way to a mesmerizing voice sample that gives the track all its depth. The exploration of various styles and influences continues with the very groovy Dancehall, produced by the Dub Akom band. We also find the massive Who Fool Them, a UK stepper track produced by Evidence Music, with the participation of Derrick Sound. Another future dancehall classic revamped with sub-bass, beats and digital techniques is Rappa Pam Pam, while much more roots reggae and mystical is Misty Babylon. The album ends with the eponymous title, a declaration of love for reggae music.
Perfect Timing is available on vinyl, CD and digital platforms. Skarra Mucci will start his European tour in October and will perform in Austria, UK, Switzerland, Spain and France.
